If we have hate crimes for lgbt people, blacks and other groups, we should have one for police. Notice how all those in opposition wont say we shouldnt have hate crimes against blacks or lgbt etc. Police have faced more discrimination recently than either of these two groups and have had a long time of anti authority, anti laws and anti police. They perform a vital service and if they are attacked or killed, and we have hate crimes for other groups, we should have it for police. If you think "police need to acknowledge their hate crimes towards minorities"
