This Man Wants To Make Yelling "Shame!" at Ex-Gov. McCrory a Crime
Senator Bishop wants that behavior criminalized ... the behavior of the protesters, not McCrory's behavior in signing a law he hadn't read and didn't understand (which, come to think of it, might also warrant criminalizing).
Sen. Bishop has proposed a new law (the General Assembly meets tomorrow for the "long session") that would "make it a crime to threaten, intimidate, or retaliate against a present or former North Carolina official in the course of, or on account of, the performance of his or her duties." Bishop said that offenders of his proposed statute should serve a prison sentence up to five years.
Gosh. Doesn't that just cry out for a major "Shame! Shame!" chant performed by a sizable group of people as Sen. Bishop walks past to take his seat in the General Assembly?
