    Obviously, they should be charged with something and serve time in jail, but I don't think it's a hate crime. They were drunk and I don't think they probably meant to kill him.

    Also, where will this end? What other groups are they going to add? Maybe it will be a hate crime if someone beats up a pedophile or a rapist. This is why I think hate crime laws are stupid. There are already enough laws on the books to adequately prosecute people.

    "And even if the youth were believed, an act demonstrating hatred toward peeping toms was also a hate crime, Judge Romilly said."
    :rolleyes:

    I feel it'd be better for this world had that judge never been born.

    :sigh:

    I guess this judge has never encountered a masturbating pervert in his laundry room.....I have. My step father is not a violent man, but if he was going to murder someone, it would have been that sicko!
