It's Texas. Is anyone REALLY surprised by this?
I have become so ashamed of my home state. Their silly "cowboy," boots stupid little "cowboy" hats and redneck viewpoints. Is it any wonder their political landscape is so off the hook ridiculous?
The Texas I remember had plenty intelligent and cool people. What in the world happened down there?
Perhaps, nothing has changed. Maybe it's just the advent of the convenient video cam. How come we only hear of stupid **** coming out of Texas anymore? Perhaps acts of kindness and intelligence just don't make for good entertainment. I dunno.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Hate crimes exist only because a new category was created to appease idiots.
A crime is supposed to be about the harm caused, not about the motivation. So under those auspices, hate crime should not exist, as harmed cased should be about harm caused, regardless of motivation.
In this case, battery being the actual crime, not the motivation.
Criminalizing the motivation as a way to enhance a sentence is nothing more than engagement of thought policing, and is wrong.
