Federal Crime to Target Officers?

On the heels of the massacre in Dallas–Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz move to “Back the Blue.”

The Texas Senators–joined by North Carolina Republican Thom Tillis–are out with a measure which would increase penalties against violent criminals that intentionally target law enforcement officers.

The proposal would create specific federal crimes that would come with mandatory minimum prison sentences.

The Senators also say it would also open up grant funding to strengthen ties between law enforcement and community.
