    The topic came up on another thread. Some people are opposed to there being a special category for bias motivated crimes.

    I support hate crime legislation. What are your views?

    They are redundant and discriminatory. Keeps lawyers busy I guess.

    I disagree. A school is set on fire. The community has a large population of Roma. It's not a simple arson. The school is covered anti-roma graffiti, "Get out Roma'. The perpetrators are caught. They admit they lit the fire to "cleanse" the aliens from their community.

    It is not simple arson. It is motivated by hate, and it's purpose is to terrify a specific class of people.

    It's a stupid, irrational law.

    Example:

    Thug beats up some guy gets 2 years in prison

    Thug beats up some gay guy gets 2 years + whatever for a 'hate' crime.

    Is either victim less beaten up? No.

    Is either victims 'special'? No.

    The law is ridiculous and panders to 'special interest' groups. I disapprove of any pandering to any group.

    Anytime someone becomes violent towards another person, it's a hate crime
