    Utah man gets maximum sentence in hate crime case

    SALT LAKE CITY ó A federal judge on Monday gave a Utah man the maximum sentence of a year in prison for writing a letter threatening to kill white members of an interracial family if they didnít make a black teenage relative move away.

    Prosecutor Carlos Esqueda said Keller was upset because the then-13-year-old boy was walking down the street with a white girl in Hurricane, a southwestern Utah city of about 14,000 people. Esqueda said the case was part of a pattern of racist behavior from Keller, and argued that Kellerís age didnít excuse his behavior.

    I dont even know what to say about this . . . its just sad that these people still exist and its even worse they dont understand the law, rights and freedoms that we have as americans.

    It's a pretty cut and dry case, not sure what you expect anyone to say about it.

    The perp is scum. Anything else?

    oh im MORE than fine with the charge and the sentence, penalties and fine

    just "almost" shocked that scum like this exist . . . . .

    not racist everybody knows they exist but writing a letter actually threatening murder etc etc from a seemingly regular person/neighbor

    although i have told a member or two here that definitely bat**** insane that if i knew them in real life i would definitely tell all the neighbors and every org i could about them to make sure they were watched closely and people stayed away from them lol

    and no, im good with "Scum"

    Is it really that shocking? You can google white supremacist groups in the USA. They're alive and well. The KKK is old school now but many others have taken their place, some of them are pretty sophisticated too.

    In the early 2000's my former neighbor's adopted daughter had a man in his 40's push her to the ground and told her to get out of town because her race didn't belong there. She was 12 at the time, still just a kid.

    This **** happens all the time in Amerikkka. Some people's brains are totally warped.

    thats way i said "almost" shocking
    and its not the racist part that is shocking, there bigots right on this board and racism is still wide spread

    it was the whole writing a letter and mailing it to your neighbor telling them you are going to murder them thing that just surprised me

    i know racism comes from ignorance and stupidity but jeez lol

    but yes people are warped

    Re: Utah man gets maximum sentence in hate crime case

    Time for one of Hatuey's famous debate breakdowns:

    Liberals: This just highlights how everyone in Utah is racist.
    Conservatives: This isn't real racism because 300 years ago, my indentured servant (ol timey Walmart employees) relatives I don't know were abused and that was racist.
    Libertarians: You're oppressing me by not letting me threaten people!
    Independents (C): Liberals are terrible! I'm so Independent! White guilt! Look at this link which distracts you from the issue! 21st Century! You're a bigot for disliking racists! How come Obama doesn't talk about Islam?
    Independents (L): I refuse to make a relevant statement either addressing this issue or dismissing the OP. I just want to feel important.
    Other: I think what is important here is that the sociological concepts and alignments of the moon are not in complete synchronicity with the hot pockets I have in the microwave.
    Posters with identity issues (1): What about the time in 1984 when Nelson Mandela killed JFK?
    Posters with identity issues (2): These white misogynists are just trying to oppress the black man for all of the late term abortions they support and rape and we progressives.

    You can all go home now people. The debate is done.
