Louisiana's hate crime law, which already includes police, now includes police. Again.

The first-ever "Blue Lives Matter" bill just became law. Louisiana was the first state to push and successfully sign into law a measure adding first responders (police officers, EMS and firefighters) as a protected class under the state's hate crime law.*Gov. John Bel Edwards signed the measure from state Rep. Lance Harris, R-Alexandria, today.

The state's hate crime laws strengthen penalties for criminal offenses targeting a person or group's "actual or perceived race, age, gender, religion, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, or ancestry of that person or the owner or occupant of that property or because of actual or perceived membership or service in, or employment with, an organization."?
