CITIZEN LOBBYISTS ASKED CA ASSEMBLYMAN TO AUTHOR BILL

Report by Robin Hvidston


Assembly Member Jay Obernolte (R) Hesperia has introduced a great bill in Sacramento! After Stella Stephens researched the Louisiana Blue Lives Matter bill, Citizen Lobbyists met with the assemblyman and requested that a similar bill be presented in the California Legislature.

Assemblyman Jay Obernolte introduced AB 2 Hate Crimes: Peace Officer - which would make harming a peace officer a hate crime.

READ AB 2 AT THE END OF THIS EMAIL.

If you live in California, call your CA State Assembly Member and your CA State Senator and tell them to support AB 2 - which would make harming/assaulting a peace officer a hate crime. This bill would add the status as a peace officer to the list of actual or perceived characteristics necessary to determine whether a criminal act qualifies as a hate crime. By expanding the scope of an existing crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. By expanding the information that law enforcement agencies report to the Department of Justice and disseminate to crime victims and the public, this bill imposes a state-mandated local program.

CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2017–2018 REGULAR SESSION
ASSEMBLY BILLNo. 2


Introduced by Assembly Member Obernolte
(Principal coauthor: Assembly Member Salas)
(Coauthors: Assembly Members Cooper and Lackey)

December 05, 2016



An act to amend Section 422.55 of the Penal Code, relating to hate crimes.
 

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST



AB 2, as introduced, Obernolte. Hate crimes: peace officers.

Existing law defines “hate crime” as a criminal act committed, in whole or in part, because of actual or perceived characteristics of the victim, including, among other things, race, religion, disability, and sexual orientation. Under existing law, that definition applies unless an explicit provision of law or the context clearly requires a different meaning. Existing law provides punishments for hate crimes that range from misdemeanors with specified penalties to felonies with additional terms of one to 3 years in state prison, depending on the underlying criminal act and other circumstances. Existing law requires, with conditions, the Attorney General to direct local law enforcement agencies to report specified information relative to hate crimes to the Department of Justice. Local law enforcement entities are required by existing law to provide a brochure on hate crimes to victims of these crimes and to the public, and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing is required by existing law to revise those brochures as needed and to provide those brochures to local law enforcement agencies upon request.

This bill would add the status as a peace officer to the list of actual or perceived characteristics necessary to determine whether a criminal act qualifies as a hate crime. By expanding the scope of an existing crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program. By expanding the information that law enforcement agencies report to the Department of Justice and disseminate to crime victims and the public, this bill imposes a state-mandated local program.

The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.

This bill would provide that with regard to certain mandates no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

With regard to any other mandates, this bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs so mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

BILL TEXT

THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:


SECTION 1.

 Section 422.55 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
 422.55.
For purposes of this title, and for purposes of all other state law unless an explicit provision of law or the context clearly requires a different meaning, the following shall apply:


(a) “Hate crime” means a criminal act committed, in whole or in part, because of one or more of the following actual or perceived characteristics of the victim:
(1) Disability.
(2) Gender.
(3) Nationality.
(4) Race or ethnicity.
(5) Religion.
(6) Sexual orientation.
(7) Status as a peace officer as defined in Section 830.

(8) Association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics.


(b) “Hate crime” includes, but is not limited to, a violation of Section 422.6.


SEC. 2.


 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution for certain costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district because, in that regard, this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.

However, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that this act contains other costs mandated by the state, reimbursement to local agencies and school districts for those costs shall be made pursuant to Part 7 (commencing with Section 17500) of Division 4 of Title 2 of the Government Code.

Comment:

When it comes to National Socialist Revolutionaries we are in a sort of damned if you do and damned if you don't type of thing.


The police are NOT friends to NS.  In fact, I always advise any comrade that if you ever have negative contact with the police you should say the five words:  "I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY."  But you should never use violence against them.  That will either get you dead or a good long sentence in one of ZOG's Gulags.

However, if it weren't for the police, just imagine how much the non-Whites - especially gang bangers - would run amok.

Reluctantly, we need the police.  And they do put their lives on the line every time they hit the streets.  It's already a felony to strike a police officer where in the same situation it would only be a misdameanor to strike a civilian.  So why not make it a hate crime ti kill a cop?  Sounds like a good ida to me.

The only negative thing I'll say about this is this:  Regardless of the situation, I would never ever shoot at anyone that didn't try and kill me first.

Dan 88!
