re: #122 Aceofwhat?

It’s so good to find someone else who dislikes ‘hate crime’ laws. you know, because if my mom gets killed and doesn’t belong to some special group, it’s not as bad…right?

There are a few around here, including myself.
However - it has been explained here that the “hate crime” designation is a way to indicate that certain crimes against certain groups go beyond the crime itself for the reason that that commission of the crime is an attempt to intimidate or terrorize a particular GROUP, in addition to the actual crime that was committed. That adds a bit of clarity to the reason that ‘hate crimes” exist; but I’m not one who is convinced it’s necessary.
