    I do not believe in the classifaction of hate crimes, but if I did would this qualify?

    And what kind of asshole would do such a thing?

    That is just sick. If they catch and convict, I'd consider civil charges if I were that soldier.

    Cynical response: Soldiers aren't PC enough to qualify for "hate-crime" protection.

    Real response: There should be no hate-crime laws. There are already laws dealing with auto theft, vandalism, and arson. That should be sufficient to charge this guy with.

    I don't like hate crime labels either. We have assault, battery, murder, arson, etc covered. By adding the word "hate" you signify to a minority that they are still less than average and still need big brothers protection.

    Since "Hate" is a thought process, doesn't hate crimes fall into the category of thought crimes? Pretty soon you better not disagree or you will be guilty. OF course you do understand that disagreement with hate crimes legislation means you must be an ist right? (race-ist, sex-ist, etc-ist).

    Soldier and criminal in a locked room. Every twenty minutes verify that breathing is occurring, bind the wounds, lock the door. Repeat as needed for a week or so........

    I'm sure that if your government sat down to go over this thing and sort it all out, the hate crimes would be failing to assist the arsonist, being a soldier to begin with, or thinking privately to yourself that this is the real hate crime.
