    Is it the State Police or the Grammar Police that are going after this person?
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    This must be a false flag attack. Bunch of Liberals making a crack on Democrats. Yep, that's the only explanation.

    Okay, so one idiot did graffiti(Got that out of the way). This idiot, however, would appear to be conservative.

    Unless they're thinking that they don't want a sick bird shelter there (ill-eagles?)
    What I want to know is what they have against sick eagles and how that is hateful?

    EDIT: I can see that it has already been done to death.

    It is not a Hate Crime... the very notion of Hate Crime is also a stupid concept. Most crime is about Hate.

    I wouldn't really agree with this because I believe a lot of crime is either about a) needs and/or wants or b) apathy, simply not caring about others, which would be different than hating those other people. I also think there is plenty of crime out there about other emotions such as love and revenge that wouldn't necessarily be hateful at all.

    Now, I do think that hate crime laws should be very limited and really only be there to ensure that when people are singled out for really violent crimes based on hate against some characteristic/trait they happen to represent/have (race, sex, sexuality, religion, etc.), that this is taken into account when it comes to punishment because such motivation on the perpetrator represents a bigger danger to society as a whole. But it should be limited to violent crimes, serious crimes and it should absolutely only be used to increase possible punishment. It should also have to be proven to the same level as the crime itself is, beyond a reasonable doubt, that "hate" was truly the motivation for the crime. I don't agree with automatically investigating crimes as hate crimes. They should simply be investigated as crimes.

    Vandalism is bad, and it should be dealt with as vandalism

    Suggesting this is a hate crime however is ludicrous but makes sense for the horrendous state to my north.

    First paragraph? Great point. I agree... thank you.

    Second paragraph? Agreed but I think that they should change the term to "race crime" or "gender orientation crime" because I still don't think "hate crime" is accurate nor is it fair to a person that was murdered in a gang attack or by an angry relative, if you see what I am saying.

    The crime here, is the attack upon the Constitution.

    I don't see any proof that this was a hate-crime (Who was injured by it?)

    But it is obviously illegal graffiti.




    If they catch whoever did this they should be sentenced to clean it off of the building.

    Most crime is about Hate.



    I don't believe that is correct.

    I believe that most crime is about people taking things that don't belong to them.

    If a person picks your pocket he doesn't do it because he hates you, he does it because he wants what you have.
