Lance Harris wrote HB 953 after Darren Goforth, a Texas sheriffs deputy, was ambushed, shot and killed while in uniform last August. http://sadiewilliamstime.universitypunjabi.org/2016/08/04/professional-guidelines-for-simple-systems-in-interview-attire/It looked like it was strictly done because someone didnt like police officers, like a hate crime, Harris said, adding that including officers and first responders to the hate-crime statute made sense because the existing law already is broad, covering attacks because of the victims race or gender or affiliation with certain organizations. In the news, you see a lot of people terrorizing and threatening police officers on social media just due to the fact that they are policemen. Now, this (new law) protects police and first responders under the hate-crime law, Harris said, adding that he considers legislative action necessary because the crime is done strictly out of hate for the officer and his uniform. For those individuals who choose to target our heroes, the message formalized in this legislative act should be clear and the consequences severe, Col. Mike Edmonson, superintendent of the Louisiana State Police, said Thursday. Response to Black Lives Matter Former police Lt. Randy Sutton of Las Vegas, a 34-year police veteran and spokesman for Blue Lives Matter a national organization made up of police and their supporters formed in response to the Black Lives Matter movement said he classifies police officers as a minority group. He said the new law is important because symbolically it advises that there is a value to the lives of police officers. When you give value, it acts as a deterrent in one sense, but it also is a tool to add extra punishment for the assaults and the crimes against them. Very rarely is it a first-time offender that kills cops, Sutton said, adding that its usually people committing crimes like robbery or who are being pursued by police who turn to shooting officers.

It.s.ot.uilding. better society, renewing the Church, having a family, fulfilling yourself, helping people or confronting new challenges. It was simply a change of vocation, and there still remained a market for grain, hay, straw and other produce of the farm. And yet, whatever his profession or condition, man is not abandoned by Providence: “As the Lord has distributed to every one, as God bath called every one, so let him walk” 1 Corinthians 7:17 . Though now often used in non-religious contexts, the meanings of the term originated in Christianity . We are bound to serve God always, and we know that, besides the acts commanded by Him, there are acts which He blesses without making them obligatory, and that among good acts there are some which are better than others. Both senses of the word “call” are used in 1 Corinthians 7:20, where Paul says “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called” KJV . Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious is not primarily our own decision…. The special rules are to be found in Holy Scripture and Tradition . This distinction between a call to holiness and a call to a specific vocation – single person, married life, consecrated life or ordained ministry – is important.
