NSW, Australia has introduced a law stating anyone who kills a cop while on duty gets a mandatory life sentence. I don't think the life of a cop is more significant than the life of a civilian. CMV.

Some might argue that because they put their life on the line to protect people, they hold more value. But in that case you could argue that a doctor who saves lives is more valuable than a cop. So why don't you get a mandatory life sentence if you kill a doctor? Why are cops so special? I mean, they're still just a person, just as someone who isn't a cop is a person.

I'm not implying cops are *less* significant. Here's what I think should happen:

Punishment severity depends on crime severity. You shoot someone in cold blood: 20 years. You torture them for several days before shooting them: Life sentence.

Either that, or mandatory life sentence for *any* life you take. I mean, why should you one day get to live your life as you please if you taken away someone else's ability to do so?

Change my view!
