Washington state lawmakers have proposed a bill that seeks to lower sentences for drive-by shooters in the name of racial equality:
House Bill 1692, the brainchild of Rep. David Hackney (D-Tukwila) and Rep. Tarra Simmons (D-Bremerton), seeks to boost “racial equality in the criminal legal system by eliminating drive-by shooting as a basis for elevating” first-degree murder to first-degree aggravated murder.Source
Apparently, this bill would also retroactively apply to convicted criminals.
Imagine being a law enforcement officer in Washington and similar states where Police have been defunded, but bills like this are aiding criminals. Officers put their time, effort and sometimes their lives on the line to arrest murderers, yet lawmakers are siding with the criminals. This is a slap in the face of those men and women who work tirelessly to keep America safe.
