    That was my only point.

    "People started saying stupid little comments - cracker this, white boy this, f----t this," Fordell said. "I told them the only reason they were saying this is there was four of them and one of me."

    "Fordell chased the men to the token booth downstairs, where two of them pummeled him while the others escaped with the bag."


    Its comparable to a sitting president saying "bring it on" after a Terrorist attack!

    I have a CC permit and have already caught someone breaking into my truck. They were held at gunpoint until police arrived. It's not a game, that's why you make sure you don't ever have the "you were killed" flash across your eyeballs in real life, because there is no "reset" button.

    Exactly. If you hate whites and make it a point to attack every white person you see, that's pre-meditated. You deserve a harsher penalty than someone who gets into a fight and accidently kills a person.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    What an utter failure of an analogy. It's nothing like that at all.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It isn't in scale, but it is in reaction and types of consequences to said reaction.

    Reaction of consequences to said reaction is no longer a valid analogy.

    Let's say one serial rapist targets black women. Another one just targets women in general. Is one more pre-meditated than the other? Is one more guilty than the other? Should one get a harsher sentence?
    Rape is rape.

    Eh. If X is attacked by Y and X taunts Y, then X is stupid. It works for both situations so the analogy is valid.
