Hate Crimes


I think "hate crimes" are a bunch of bullshit. While it may be horrible to hate a specific group of people, that belief is not a crime and should not be a sentence/punishment enhancement. This story shows how rare it is that prosecutors are willing to charge the not-usual perpetrators (if you get my drift) of hate crimes. It's a rule that is unequally applied and should just be ditched.
