House bill would make targeted killing of law enforcement officers a hate crime
Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., introduced a bill in Congress that would make it a hate crime to target a police officer. Buck filed the measure, he said in a phone interview from Washington, D.C. The bill, dubbed the Blue Lives Matter Act of 2016, would expand the federal hate crime statute to include law enforcement officers who are targeted for acts of violence because of their jobs.
