Full disclosure, I do not support the death penalty. However even if I did I would not support this bill. The "reasoning" behind the bill is inherently flawed. Firstly, equality of all is a founding (although not realized) principle of this nation, and yet this bill presumes some lives are more valuable than others and appears to base that erred conclusion on something as flimsy as an individual's occupation. How absurd. Secondly, our criminal justice system is supposed to be about justice, not revenge. Granted, that certainly isn't always the case, but this bill in particular reeks with the spirit of revenge and retaliation. Such an attitude and response is counterproductive to the cause of fairness and justice. Finally, law enforcement and the criminal justice system in this country are rife with systemic bias, excessive use of force and disparity in how laws are enforced and sentencing is carried out with people of color disproportionately receiving harsher treatment than their white counterparts. Until we openly seriously address this issue and those with the authority to do so take meaningful steps to correct the problem(s) any increased mandatory sentencing will purposefully disproportionately harm individuals and communities of color. Their is no fairness or justice in that. This is a bad bill. Do not support it.
