    no! but if they commit a violent crime against a person who is a member of a group that is often the victim of hate crimes, it warrants an investigation of the possibility of a hate crime. jeez.

    No. I was just correcting the part I quoted. ReverendHellh0und claimed that a black person was involved... I was just correcting that the victim and the accused were both white.

    That post was responding to a suggestion that the victim was black.

    They have to investigate the allegation even if it's unfounded. It seems odd that tat guy worked there for two years, while these advances were made, but only decided to shoot the guy for it after being fired. Maybe tat guy believes that being hit upon up would be an extenuating circumstance.

    NC doesn't include sexuality/sexual orientation in hate crime laws.

    "hate crimes" are supposedly an add-on for when you commit the crime because of your hate of the other parties ethnic background.
