“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.
as we hear same person say "stupidest statement" every day said poster posts
Chemists Have Solutions .
When the three blacks on camera broke the guys jaw about a month a go that was a love crime????
Please explain to me why this is a federal case.
The feds can't just come in and take a case over when they have no jurisdiction.
Was the victim a federal employee or did this happen on federal property?
This was a local assault case period.
I haven't checked it out, but an earlier poster said the feds can come in of the local case fails.
Please show me where the local case was even filed, let alone failed.
I do believe in the first case we heard about a while back the suspects when interviewed stated they went after only white people.
Wouldn't that admission classify the crime as a hate crime?
For the record the suspects were black and the victim white.
I don't believe in hate crime legislation, my opinion is it is feel good legislation based upon assigning differing standards to the same thing. That said this was a cowardly and disgusting act against a defenseless person and rather than creating a hate crime standard the idiot who did this should get hit with everything on the books; Abuse of the elderly, aggravated battery, attempted manslaughter/murder, willful injury. The victim did not deserve what happened to him, on that we can all agree, I just think that crimes should be punished according to everything but motivation, an armed robber for instance gets punished according to the laws he broke, whether that was to feed his family or score quick cash it's irrelevant to the actionable crime.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
