This isn’t about public safety. If it were, we’d listen to the professional public safety leaders who tell us this won’t make Texas safer. Instead, they tell us we’ll be less safe.
I won’t reject the advice of safety professionals for the agenda of politicians.
And current law doesn’t prohibit the decisions, positions and actions that are so casually condemned by self- righteously and incorrectly invoking the “Rule of Law”.
I won’t vote for a distortion and degradation of the law and Constitution we swore to uphold.
I love our state. But Texas has a sad, sinful, stained legacy of mistreating people who don’t look like me. This bill and this vote write another ugly chapter in that history.
