"Hate Crime" laws are a bad idea because they violate the basic American tenant that we are all equal under the law. Simply put, such legislation gives certain classes of victims, politically favored classes, better protection, or at least their attackers receive a harsher punishment. Moreover, "Hate Crime" laws tend to breed political grandstanders, those who would fabricate "hate crimes" to gain the attention of a pliant MSM. One recent example
includes the Southern CA Professor, Kerri Frances Dunn, who vandalized her own car to create the phony and inflated impression of racism in her community. The media rushed to judge; students rushed to the streets to protest, and she rushed to file a fraudulent insurance claim. Oops!
Today, we have this jackass, who carved the word FAG on his own forehead:
"[He] told police that on Dec. 14, two subjects attacked him in the parking lot of his apartment complex. He said the attackers cut him in the stomach, branded him with a hot knife, and attempted to carve the word 'Fag' on his forehead.
Investigators were suspicious about the report because the head carving was backwards, as if done while looking into a mirror." (emphasis added)
Perhaps the bundle of sticks he was referring to was the one occupying his cranial cavity. I think he would have been better off carving DIPSHIT in his forehead. At least then, people would know who they were dealing with.
