Above is Deputy Constable Alden Clopton, shot several times April 14 while on patrol in Houston.
It's time to really beef up penalties for merely confronting, or arguing with police...like 1st offense jail time, depending upon the severity of the confrontation.
A simple assault (ie. pushing, spitting etc.) on a police officer SHOULD BE a minimum 5 years...more serious assaults should carry MUCH harsher sentences.
THANKS to the great Danny Farrell of Newark NJ's Fire Dept for the heads up.
