State police association president wants punishment for social media murder threats

The president of the Combined Police Associations of Texas wants those who call for the murder of officers on social media to face criminal charges.

On Wednesday, an officer walked into the 7-11 at Cameron Road and U.S. 290 in East Austin and found a message written inside a bathroom door that read, "Run over cops at traffic stops or shoot them in the cop car!"

Anti-police sentiment has also appeared in Houston this week in the form of spray-painted police officers with guns beside their heads.
