Make Assaulting a Healthcare worker in Kentucky a Felony

This petition had 74 supporters

Currently in the State of Kentucky, it is a felony to assault (while executing their jobs) a law enforcement officer, firefighter, paramedic, EMT, and even school sports officials.  Meanwhile, healthcare providers are continually threatened, punched, pinched, bitten, and spit on while our government officials in Frankfort do nothing to protect us. Several states have passed legislation to protect healthcare professionals by ensuring that any assault carries the weight of a felony charge.  Sign this petition to show Frankfort that we are sick and tired of being treated with less regard that a football referee.  We save lives.
