Presidential candidate Clinton promises to prosecute police killers
[Al Ahram] Hillary Clinton
... sometimes described as
The Heroine of Tuzla and at other times as Mrs. Bill, never as
Another Henry Clay ...
promised on Monday to bring the "full weight of the law" against people who kill coppers if she becomes the next US president after two recent episodes of gunnies slaying coppers in Dallas and Baton Rouge.
Clinton, the presumptive Democratic candidate ahead of a Nov. 8 election, made the promise in a speech in Cincinnati at the annual convention of the civil rights group the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
"Anyone who kills a police officer and anyone who helps must be held accountable," Clinton said. "As president, I will bring the full weight of the law to bear to make sure those who kill coppers are brought to justice."
The penalties for killing a police officer are rightly more severe than those for killing a civilian because police are symbols of the rule of law, she said.
