    If you're "checking out Youtube" for evidence of other than internet preteens calling each other gay, you're doing it wrong.
    I'm willing to concede that, which is why I raised the question. Is there any evidence that White are doing more than Blacks, Blacks more than Whites, or Hispanics more than anyone? Is it touchy to even ask the question?

    They've been justified down as we try and appeal to the lowest common denominator and fringe elements.

    Does anyone actually believe that a healthy society is possible without a strong set of Central moral standards ? Standards that exceed our lawful definitions ?
    Few morals in a country going broke, and the people still expecting freebies, is a potentially dangerous situation.

    I can't imagine a prosecutor calling this simple assault. That is reserved for two stupid drunks spitting in each others face and one pops the other in the mouth, not for potentially killing someone with a hard sucker punch over concrete.
    From what I have been told in the local news is that the most severe penalty would be 90 days in jail. Keep in mind that each State has its own laws and we would have to have a new law covering this.

    Because they didn't have one?

    Or do you have another idea?

    Would you support it being classified as a hate crime? Seems like a lot of hate to attack random people,

    By that rationale, ANY act of supposedly random violence could be classified as a hate crime.

    I don't particularly like hate crime laws, simply because it's virtually impossible to determine a true motive for a random act of violence, even under oath in open court.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    The act of violence wasn't random, the victim was the random part.
