Amidst all the talk about immigration and human rights violations, Congress is always moving both locally and nationally. With the narrative of police targeting gaining enough steam to basically be cemented as fact in a large portion of the countries mind. There is a bill that just recently passed the house and currently sits in the Senate. This bill will basically make any harm done to police officers a federal hate crime. This marks a distinct shift in civil rights where people are no longer protected because they have been systematically oppressed for biological conditions they have little to no control over, they are protected for the job they have despite that job being under no systemic oppression, causing immense harm to communities, and already being one of the most protected jobs in the nation.
During this episode of Lessons from the Screen we will be looking at the Protect and Serve Act of 2018. We will be looking at what it says, why people feel it’s needed, whether or not the statistics are there to show that it’s really needed, and who voted for it.
