    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 . . . ;))

    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.

    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?

    Not really. If one reads most of your threads one would conclude that muslims are under every bush waiting to behead every non-muslim.

    There IS a differance between a crime of hate and a crime economic gain.

    This country was founded on the idea that all people of the world are worthy of respect.

    Give us your poor and huddled masses yearning to be free.

    When you attack a person for being themselves you attack the very freedoms that makes this country great.

    Why the fuck do so many on the right HATE to have our ideas supported by our laws?

    If the "ideas" were so good and what the people wanted.

    Then you wouldn't need laws to force people to accept the "ideas". :cool:

    Under your idiot example no laws are needed.

    There are those who follow no laws.

    You just enjoy your hate and dont want to let it go

    Is the persecution of Christians a hate crime?

    Why do I suppose echo chamber members are racist and hate mongers? Has it anything to do with the way they are attracted to threads such as this one? Or that they deny the obvious distinction between a crime committed against a person because of their race, ethnicity or creed and one motivated by greed or opportunity?
    Is the burning of a church a violent act, are such actions different than burning down a house for insurance (also an act of violence where others maybe harmed)? Is gay bashing or bullying an act of violence? Of course, but when the victim is targeted because of their sexual orientation and not as a random victim, the law correctly aggrevates the offense.
    Are the comments of too many 'conservatives' on this message board expessions of hate and fear of ethnic minorities, illegal aliens, Muslims and liberals? Of course, but they are not crimes. Simply examples of ignorance, a necessary condition for bigotry.
