    Do you really not know that we have laws which increase the sentence for violent acts that are committed for terroristic purposes?

    BTW, don't think I didn't notice how you didn't answer the question about manslaughter

    I am not aware of any that are referenced like "hate crimes."

    I specifically responded to it.

    But, rather than clarify the comments, your first instinct was to go into insult mode.

    Isn't this another Bonfire of the Vanities?

    I'm by no means excusing this crime - he's guilty as sin by his own recording. This isn't about the white man, but the omission of the black defendants who are NOT charged with a hate crime. Each case must be taken individually and obviously a hate crime is not extended in all situations.
    “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.

    Who exactly are "the libbos" ? Give us five examples of what you claim is a commonplace. Breaking the law is not OK, but some crimes attract an extra tariff when they are motivated by hate, on top of criminality.

    You bring up a good point. And While I think there is a clear disparity in how the public and state react to crimes involving individual;s of differing racial backgrounds, have any of the other "knock-out attacks" involved such clear evidence of racial motivation?
