    Re: Congress extends hate crime protections to gays

    Is it illegal to hate "hate crime" legislation yet. It's all stupid ****. We have a court system already. Mandatory sentencing, things of that nature is in general a bad idea. Trying to force higher prison terms based on feelings or attitudes is also a bad idea. Assault is assault. There are varying degrees of assault and it comes with its own window of punishment for the judge to do his job...judge, and ascribe appropriate punishment.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Yet another person who completely misunderstands how the legislation works and how it is used by federal law enforcement--when appropriate.

    Why post in the thread if you have no clue what you're talking about? What's the point? Venting about nothing.

    This legislation does nothing to address root problems.

    I agree with most of the posters. A crime is a crime. Enforce them. It's that simple.

    We don't need to open the door to an Orwellian police state.

    It's not Ikari who has no idea what he's talking about - it's you.

    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
