This Could Make it Easier to Put Cop Killers to Death

The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday passed legislation that would make it easier to impose the death penalty against anyone who kills a law enforcement officer or first responder.

The Thin Blue Line Act, sponsored by Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., would make the victim’s job as a police officer, firefighter or other first responder an “aggravating” factor that would factor into death penalty decisions.

There have been 39 law enforcement deaths in 2017 so far, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page.
