    There are two questions here?
    Hate crime, it sounds like so? Beating a person based on etnicity is just that, isn't it?

    Prediction...
    They are most likley the wrong guys since the police let them go.

    "Hate crimes" are only for whites.

    Blacks can do this shit all day long, and they get a phone call of congratulations from the ****** President. Did someone say America was a fucked-up country? What a racist thing to say!

    Hate crime laws are all bad because they criminalize thought.

    Yes it is! If they attacked him for being white, it is a hate crime.

    And are you sure that didn't happen in Tacoma? :D

    It's not the thought that's a crime, it's the violent action with bigoted words.

    I understand the reasoning, but disagree with hate crimes. Like I said, what crime isn't hateful? And when it appears as if the laws are only applied when whites commit crimes against minorities, it's almost as if the state is saying white freedoms aren't as important as minorities.


    Honestly, when some idiot does something like this, I don't care what his reasons are, throw his ass in jail

    So you think that someone who rear ends someone accidentally and ends up killing someone should receive the same punishment as someone who shoots someone in the face?

    After all, the only difference is "thought".
