    ....then STOP talking about my posts. Just ignore them. Problem solved.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Because many hate crime advocates are quick to seize upon victims who are gay/minority, and use them as poster children, regardless of the motives in the crimes.

    I.e., Matthew Sheppard.

    That is the very reason I said: Nothing to see here folk. Move along.

    If you want to read this as a "hate" crime (I have no idea what a hate crime is.) then there is nothing to see, so just move along.

    Oh, if you are trying to use "Mr. Former Retired Officer" as a pajoritive....please try again. Besides it should have been ...."Mr. Retired Marine Corps Officer" or "Mr. Former Marine Corps Officer (Retired)".

    Geeish.....
    I see nothing in the title of this article that would indicate a "hate" crime was even the subject matter of this incident. You are assuming that the only reason anyone would find this article worthwhile is because there was a hate crime involved. Someone killing another person is news to some of us, no matter what the basis was for that killing.

    perjorative is spelled this way, by the way.

    Not in the title, but definitely in the first paragraph.

    SAN DIEGO A sailor has been charged with fatally shooting and burning a gay serviceman last month at Camp Pendleton
    It automatically speculates that it was a hate crime, because of that sailor's sexual orientation. Why else state that the sailor was gay?

    Would you please, please, with sugar on it, go back and re-read the very first post in this thread and see if it does or does not mention a sex hate crime.


    Thanks for the spelling correction. My "spell checker" knows spelling, just not which word I intended to use.......however, your "perjorative is spelled this way, by the way." is also in error. It's pejorative.

    I assume that the OP wants us to read the article and make our own determination as to her comment. You're making it seem as though because YOU don't see a hate crime, it means there wasn't one and NO ONE else should waste their time reading the article. Let the reader come to their own conclusion. Sheesh.

    My bad. That was an accident because I know how to spell it. At least I didn't spell it with an "a."

    If the OP had wanted us to read the article and make up our own minds as to it's importance and meaning why then would the OP have added, "Does not look like this was an anti-gay hate crime:" ?

    ....I'm just saying.


    I do not know how to spell most words but at least I did not spell it with a "l".
