Because it is only a hate crime when the crime is committed ONLY for the purpose of striking fear into a population, and ONLY when the attacker is a member of a hate group and/or has hate group propaganda against the victim in their possession.For example, why is not all rape committed against women considered a hate crime.
Hate crime is worse for society than if someone attacks you for money or revenge. Random victims being targeted in an organized effort for the sole purpose of striking terror is a much greater harm and danger for society as a whole. It's similar to the difference between 2nd and 1st degree murder, but with much larger implications resulting from the motive.I also admit there is some part of me that bristles just a little at the implication that an assault against me is somehow just a little less bad. **** that, all crimes against me personally should be capital crimes.
