    Too bad, he made remarks about doing it before he did it. He knew right from wrong.

    It's a heinous cowardly thing to do to anyone, but to announce the race element, and brag about it, is begging for the extra penalty to be applied. As for the ludicrous idea that he's the only white guy to have ever done it, anyone pushing that has severe problems with reality.

    Hate crime legislation -- the idea that doing the exact same illegal physical act is more illegal if you think the way the state does not like.

    Yeah, guy acts like an idiot, and apparently he's the victim.

    Sounds pretty much like a textbook hate crime to me.

    The stated motive is readily available in this case, whereas in the vast majority of others is purely speculative and therefore not a worthwhile avenue to pursue. Shouldn't be much of a controversy to be quite frank. Of course, that would squander a perfectly good opportunity to drum up fears of white persecution at the hands of a black President and Attorney General.

    Yes, because our Democracy has had people vote legislators into power who believe this. Because the majority of the population wants to send a message that this type of behavior is unacceptable. This idea that the state exists in some kind of vacuum is foolish. "The state" is a reflection of the will of the voters.

    You mean this thinking is unacceptable? The exact same physical act is more illegal because your thinking is not state approved.

    Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia, right?

    Way to completely ignore what I said to shoehorn in your absurd literary hyperbole.
