    Of course. BUt, did Texas charge him at all? And, if so, was it a felony on par with a serious hate crime?

    Hate crimes are not serious. They are exactly the same thing as not a hate crime but the thinking of the attacker is not state approved.

    The way I understand the linear course of actions - he was arrested in Houston TX and charged in TX after police found he recorded the event on his cell phone. The DoJ took over the case and federally charged him with hate crimes. I have no information on the charges that were issued in TX. If you have that information I'd be interested to see it.

    However, I disagree with your assertion that the Fed DoJ gets involved when the state is "not doing their job". That's BS. This DoJ gets involved when they feel they need to make a statement.


    You also didn't weigh in regarding my legitimacy question.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Apparently, the dumbest man alive, showed the video to a police officer and he was arrested.
