In the 90s , a man stepped into a church spraying the people with AK-47 bullets yelling “I hate all Christians.” Janet Reno did not consider it a hate crime either.
I guess we missed the section in the federal hate crime law where it says that it is ok to kill or maim whites and Christians.
I guess it’s the same way that Uri Davis can call Israel “the only apartheid state in the U.N.” when we have Sudan, Zimbabwe, Saudi Arabia, to name just three.
Jake the quote in the article is from an NYPD inspector, saying “it’s not being looked at as a biased incident.” Charging is up to the D.A., not the police, so who knows what will actually end up being charged. But it’s nice to know that Karol finally accepts that there are hate crimes.
Yes, I do. All violent crimes are hate crimes.
Oddly enough, as I posted a couple days ago, you CAN get charged for a hate crime if you intimidate blacks and hispanics … even if you’re black, and were just doing it for attention. Cases like these give the concept of “hate crime” the intellectual merit it deserves.
Everyone knows that the oppressed are always the good guys. The trick is convincing yourself that you azre oppressed.
the way the local tv news (abc) was reporting it, the polic were trying to talk the victims out of pursuing hate crime charges. although the charges are up to the DA, what happens when the police take down the report and how it’s relayed to the DA has a great deal to do with the charges.
i also found it very interesting that abc news chose to conclude that because police talked these girls out of pursuing hate crime charges, bloomberg must be skewing his crime rate numbers.
Being charged with a hate crime is a very serious thing. The key factor that this case must be missing is that the crime must be motivated by hate bias. It sounds like this assault was motivated by a dispute over a basketball court.
