I feel unable to pick either side on this matter. A hate crime against anyone is always innately wrong, but police have to be held to higher standards than this. Police brutality against blacks is reaching an all new high and it hurts to hear the news nowadays because of it. Our country is being divided and taking one side over the other is essentially going to cause a war amongst our civilians. I cannot vote yes to this unless I see legislation showing that police officers will be held to stricter standards and not immediately jumping to conclusions. Racism has to end. It's hurting our country and it's tearing our country apart. Congress, take note.
