    Gov. Signs Law Ending Death Penalty For Killing Cops Unless It's Premeditated

    This may have run previously since this happened back in September, but this morning was the first I have run across this. (The part in bold is my emphasis.)

    Gov. Signs Law Ending Death Penalty For Killing Cops Unless It's Premeditated

    Salem, OR — The world’s largest organization of sworn law enforcement officers is urging Oregon’s governor to call a special session of the State Legislature over a law change that narrows the instances in which cop killers will face potential death sentences.

    Oregon Governor Katherine Brown signed off on Senate Bill 1013 earlier in September.

    The new law “redefined and narrowed” the offense of aggravated murder “with respect to the application of the death penalty” by adding the requirement of premeditation, National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) President Patrick Yoes said in a letter to Brown on Sept. 4.

    Yet she expects her State Police security detail to step in front of a bullet meant for her? The State Police should tell this commie twit to pound sand

    I don't think there should be any more of a penalty for killing a cop as there should be for killing a random person on the street. Cops aren't special, veterans aren't special, and so forth.

    Cops are our first line of defense against evil that preys on citizens.
    Yes, all life is special but cops need to know that we have their backs.
    Death penalty for cop killers is one way.
    In a perfect world, death penalty for all killers.
    Forgive me, but I do believe that our cops and veterans are special.

    I'm a veteran and I don't think I'm special. I appreciate that others might but I do not.

    Point is...the death penalty should exist for all, not special categories. And to be clear, cops are generally not proactive...by design they are generally reactive.

    I disagree for a variety of reasons.
    1. Law enforcement are already given a lot of leeway in applying their authority. They should get respect, but not special treatment, in life or in death. For example, LEOSA and its state equivalents should be repealed immediately.

    2. I agree about the death penalty in principle but not in practice. Many innocent people have been railroaded through the justice system. Furthermore, law enforcement and court officials have a case-proven carte blanche to lie, cheat, withhold exculpatory evidence, all without any fear of consequences. The government should not be able to execute a perpetrator who's no longer a threat for the same reason you and I cannot.

    I completely disagree. We hire police officers to risk their lives to protect us. Society does not pay police officers the value of their life. There needs to be a clear message that killing a police officer will have serious consequences.

    What this governor has done is contribute to the attacks on police officers because she has reduced the consequences.

    There needs to be a clear message that murdering anyone will have serious consequences. Rather than focus on special classes of persons, government should ensure all murderers are eligible for the same serious consequences.

    What empirical data do you have to support this?

    While we're at it, get rid of the "hate crimes" category of laws.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 227 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    if the penalty for killing politicians was worse than any other murder who would still support having different standards for different classes of people?
    We get the government we deserve.

    I'd probably support jury nullification in that case.....
