    He might not have gotten his ass whipped, if he'd had a piece.

    It's NYC, this wasn't an option, and he's emo, he wouldn't havc had the training, and it would have been too heavy for him to carry anyway.

    He could probably heft a .32 compact, with a little vampire painted in nail polish on the side.

    Which is why "murder for hire" has a greater penalty than killing "in the heat of the moment". It's why we have terrorism laws, that the rightwing supports, because they KNOW that "murder is murder" is BS, and that some murders are more damaging to society than others, except when it comes to protecting minorities...then it's "murder is murder"

    then Obama should be charged with hate crimes for calling the irish drunks.


    And this argument is asinine. If the colors were reversed, this libertarian would say the same thing. please.

    Hate crimes require an underlying crime in order to be a hate crime. Since calling people names is not a crime, calling Irish "drunks" is not a hate crime.

    If the races were reversed, the law would still consider it a hate crime.

    It's already a crime, why do you need additional laws?

    For the same reason we have laws that single out terrorism, or do you oppose those too?

    Terrorism has specific political goals, it is a war crime. Murdering your boyfriend in a jealous rage and calling him a jew while you do it is not in need of a special law for a "hate crime"...

    Hate cries have specific political goals, they are crime. Murdering your boyfriend in a jealous rage and calling him a jew while you do it requires a special law for a "hate crime".
