    It chose a case in which the person accused is white, even though most other cases reported in the news have involved black assailants

    It looks like they have ample evidence to prosecute this guy and get a conviction.

    Would you have let him go?

    Let him go back to Texas to receive a guaranteed conviction of the non-thought crimes he committed?

    The exact same physical act is more illegal because your thinking is not state approved.

    Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia, right?



    Do you find hating and harming people because someone doesn't like their race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation acceptable?

    Charging someone for "hate" crimes is imo stupid. It is too much like (and really is) charging someone for thinking a fantasy of them screwing Angelina Jolie as a rape crime. We should charge people with actual crimes that they have done and not have crimes for thinking.

    I personally have no problem with someone hating someone else for whatever reason. I personally hate only one person....should I be charged extra because of it if I beat the crap out of that person?

    Which should give you a clue as to how far out of touch the "very" conservatives are.

    ...as should the latest election results.

    You certainly don't argue they were in touch in 2010?

    Meaningless Koch Bros bought mid-term where "white rage" was exploited and seemed to develop groundswell support.

    I wouldn't be too proud of 2010, if I were you. That election showed the worst of America.

    BTW, like millions of Americans, I didn't vote in '10. Hell, I never vote midterms...few centrists do. Actually, I almost didn't vote in '12 either. And, I definitely won't vote in 14.

    So if they are voted in it is meaningless, and if they are voted not in it is meaningful? Got in, makes total sense.
