    good to see Americans still care about freedom of speech i get the impression people on TV are not going to have anyone against these laws people as people wont seperate the idea someone is argue for a principle not racism etc.

    I thought this was going to be about some new form of racing on the Web.

    I don't agree with what they did at all. But neither do I agree with the trend toward the restriction of free
    speech in this country in recent years. Things like a couple thrown out of a town hall meeting a few years
    back for wearing anti Bush t-shirts. Or during elections and they force protesters to so-called free
    speech zones. These locations were in fact limited speech zones located some times blocks from the
    event being protested. All with little media coverage and no outrage.
    Upset yet?
    Well what would you say if I told you that in this country only white people can commit so-called hate
    crimes? It's true. Just read the following story and explain how this is possible, and ask.
    Do we not have a little thing called equal justice under the law? Truth is we do but it's only words and not
    something that is practiced in the courts.
    In this country hate crimes are stupid, there are laws on the books covering all crimes and because the victim is of some minority whether, in race or religion should make no difference what ever. But it does jurt please read this.

    Akron police say they aren't ready to call it a hate crime or a gang initiation.

    But to Marty Marshall, his wife and two kids, it seems pretty clear.
    People are going to have to take a stand against things like this in this country. Racism is racism, and officials fear labelling blacks attacking whites a hate crimes. If they won't then we need leaders who aren't scared to.

    While I don't agree with the jailing of these individuals, I don't pretend to believe that the UK's (or any other European country's) interests in this matter are the same as ours.

    As for hate crime legislation, while I will admit that having unique penalties for violent crime seems a little redundant, I do believe special consideration should be given to some non-violent crimes. Vandalism being in my mind right now. I do believe there is a difference between spray-painting graffiti on a railway car and painting swastikas on gravestones in a Jewish graveyard. I do believe they are inherently different crimes.

    I'm increasingly of the opinion that the penalties for vandalism need to be considerably harsher in all cases. I think Singapore had the right idea.

    It is funny how the right condemns Iran and Ahmadinejad for holocaust denial and Anti-Zionism, yet think it is fine that this guy is trying to incite violence against Jewish people.

    No one is condemning Ahmadinejad for Holocaust denial and Anti-Zionism. We're--at least I am--condemning him for being an anti-American asshole. He could admit that the Holocaust happened and he would still be an asshole.
