Police across the country are trying to make it a hate crime, to criticize first responders or to resist arrest even if they’re innocent! (first responders are police, firefighters and EMS personnel.)
According to Louisiana’s new law, citizens who criticize first responders can be sentenced to prison for up to six months and given a $500 penalty. If convicted of a felony, they can receive an additional five years and fines up to $5,000.

“This is a new world for law enforcement. We have people that monitor social media particularly in and around the things that we think maybe related to hate crimes, and then we make value judgments based on the law” Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said.
