A few years back, some hate crimes were passed. Should we even have hate crimes as laws? In my opinion, I don't feel that there should be hate crimes. To me, a crime is a crime regardless of someone's race and sexual preferrence. I have seen these hate crime laws misused, and other times never applied when a straight white person is a victim of what one could call a hate crime simply by the discription of hate crime laws. Too much p.c. these days!

Hate crime laws are really illogical and especially so in the case of murder where the guilty may given the death penalty. Think about it a moment. Just how dead can the state make someone? Dead is dead, there are no degrees of death. Hate crimes is just one more of many illogical political correctness claptrap.

Shawn I respectfully disagree with your opinion. I've sat through trials of hate crimes and having grown up in the South, I fully believe that the punishment for a "hate" crime should be somewhat harsher. To think that someone commits an atrocity against another human being simply because they are different is wrong on so many levels. And before you pop off about "straight white guys" I've been to places where you would could be in grave danger simply for being caucasion or having long hair. Demographics are a definite deciding factor of who the crimes are perpetuated against. I fully believe hate crimes are for the most part a severe expression of racism or sexism and should be punished accordingly.

it's sorta like talking about the death penalty.
there are pro and con on both sides.
if you want to pay huge taxes to keep 'people' alive
that have committed heinous crimes, well....
it's sorta like talking about the legitmacy of war.
there are pro and con on both sides.
war machines cost huge taxes also.
it just seems to me the sexual revolution
has caused the disruption of our whole
social order. so did the civil rights act of 1964.
criminals have more rights than the law-abiding now.
since the passage of the civil rights act of 1964.
should it be against the law to hate the al-qaeda?
hate any enemy of the u.s. govt? hate the u.s. govt.?
can you really legislate love and peace and freedom?
society is in such flux. adapting and adjusting to
the daily changes that are very rapid really keeps one on their toes.
good question and blog there. thx.

My first response would have been yes. To protect gays and different races. But after I read your description, I agree with you. A crime is a crime.
