    Is that a hate crime?

    No.

    Will this make bigger press than Jersey?

    No.

    Will anyone rush in to protest it?

    No.

    Those who attended the show with Morrison say the brawl that led to his death was touched off by someone in the club taking offense to a Lynyrd Skynyrd shirt featuring a Confederate flag that was worn by one of Morrison's friends.

    The arrest brought some level of relief to Morrison's family.

    Lorrie Morrison said the authorities told her a week ago that they were planning to arrest a suspect. She said police found an FSU key chain on Franklin, despite his denying involvement in the gang.

    Both she and the victim's grandparents expressed appreciation to the police and news media for the speedy arrest and for keeping the case in the public eye.

    "Nothing is going to bring him back," said Carol Zemartis, James Morrison's grandmother. "But I'm so glad they got somebody, and it is gang-related, no matter what anyone says."

    In the news release, Prosecutor Valentin said, "By following every lead and interviewing many individuals who possibly knew relevant information, police were able to arrest the man whose gratuitous violent act recklessly caused the death of Mr. Morrison."



    Do whites get what's happening in this country?

    I'm waiting.

    Have you become so desperate that you're now using white on white violence to propagandize your racist Aryan agenda?

    LMAO. You're an idiot.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Hate Crimes. This case proves you don't have to be a racist Republican to commit a hate crime.

    If the T-shirt was the catalyst then is isn't a hate crime...
    if he was killed because he happened to be white, then it is.

    Than by your rational the confederate flag is in no way rascist since it is just a symbol.

    So all the blacks should quit saying its rascist to fly the flag right????

    No. By my rationale, the shirt worn has nothing to do with it being a 'hate' crime. If it was a hate crime, the guy could have been shirtless, or wearing a NWA shirt and the result would've been the same. If you are out to lynch some black dudes - are you gonna double-check their shirt logo first?

    I made no mention of blacks' feeling about the confederate flag, not as familiar with the racial overtones that flag has for different people.
    I thought it just represented the confederate army from civil war... and the idea that the north was arrogant and tried to force its way of life down the southern state's throats... but that's based on reading, not on discussing it with anyone from dixie, or wherever... feel free to enlighten.

    So if I wore a Hitler or Osama T-shirt, I would be free from lynching?
