Is there a difference, and if so, what is it?
It depends on the type of terrorism. Some terrorist acts are love crimes.
Terrorism is a manmade disaster and hate crimes are only perpetrated by white people
I'm not a lawyer but I'm sure there is a legal difference. Other than that it's just perspective.
It was sarcasm.
I don't understand the concept of a "hate crime". The way I see it, any crime that has a victim has an element of hate to it. Otherwise, we would have "love crimes" in addition to "hate crimes".
Well...there are crimes of passion.
IMO, there is no difference between a hate crime and an act of terrorism...both are designed to terrorize a group. It always mystifies me that many will be okay with bringing terrorist charges against someone but hesitant about bringing hate crime charges against someone.
I was hoping someone could explain the difference.
a crime is a crime to say similar crimes differ in seriousness because what the perp was thinking is fucking ridiculous.
I wish someone could explain why certain crimes can carry a charge like "hate crime", yet others do not. As I said, any crime that has a victim has an element of hate to it.
Terrorism is military tactic.
Your question is stupid.
But you knew that already.
