    The important thing is that hate crimes are being prosecuted. We need more prosecution of hate crimes in order to stamp them out.

    (Sits back and waits for the onslaught . . . ;))

    All violent crimes involve hatred.

    Looks like increased prosecution of hate crimes isn't resulting in less hate crimes.

    Or, are they just moving the goalposts to classify it as "hate?"

    Are you less a victim if the exact same crime is perpetrated on you without "hate?"

    Not the kind of hatred involved in a true, hate crime - which is the entire point of hate crime legislation.

    Hate crimes are crimes committed in whole or in part for reasons of racial bigotry.

    All hate crimes do is thin the herd, on all sides. Nothing to see here folks, move along.

    I actually found the numbers remarkably low for a state as big as NY. Eleven anti-Muslim crimes? If you check out CAIR and other pro-Sharia websites, you'd think the GZ mosque controversy has caused a major national security issue. Ironic, ain't it?
