    It's unbelievable to me that the United States of America has locations that actually have "religious" laws.

    I've spent a good part of my life fighting against oppressive people, I never thought it would come to my cherished country.

    For them equate this to a hate crime is ridiculous. There was no harm, no injury. He didn't spray paint swastikas on a Jewish synagogue that harmed the property and did physical damage, or paint over the statue with atheist slogans that damaged the statue. There was no crime. An idiot being an a-hole? Yeah, but no crime. If being an idiot were a crime, the majority of this nation would be behind bars.
    I agree. It makes as much sense as charging people with a hate crime.

    Any person who commits the offense of desecration of a venerated object is guilty of a crime.

    For you to find the defendant guilty of this offense, the state must have proven beyond a reasonable doubt the existence of the following essential elements:1

    [Part A:

    (1) that the defendant desecrated a place of [worship] [burial];

    and

    (2) that the defendant acted intentionally.]

    or

    [Part B:

    (1) that the defendant desecrated a [state] [national] flag;

    and

    (2) that the defendant acted intentionally.]

    "Desecrate" means defacing, damaging, polluting or otherwise physically mistreating in a way that the person knows or should know will outrage the sensibilities of an ordinary individual likely to observe or discover the person's action.2

    "Intentionally" means that a person acts intentionally with respect to the nature of the conduct or to a result of the conduct when it is the person's conscious objective or desire to engage in the conduct or cause the result.3

    Hm. Interesting. Thank you....



    I'd take note that this law covers places of worship, burial sites, and the state and national flags.


    I have mixed feelings. Certainly, when you consider the level of outrage and fury that can result when someone willfully desecrates a place of worship, or a grave site (particularly where someone you loved is buried), or indeed the national flag in some cases, you could make a case that this is "public disorderly conduct" or possibly even "inciting to riot".


    Twenty years ago, if I'd seen that going on, I would have kicked that kid's ass. (I was more hotheaded then). Today, no I wouldn't..... but I'd definitely read him the riot act verbally, which could lead to escalations.... so in a sense one could argue public order is endangered by some types of such behavior.


    But one has to be careful of the slippery slope thing....

    Re: Boy Charged For Desecration Of Jesus Statue

    Gee it wasn't to long ago that somebody made a float for a parade the had a bunch of Obama supporters bent out of shape. Matter of fact I believe the justice department was "'looking into it"'?? Now I personally think the kid should be told to quit being a disrespectful ass and that's that. But you could lay money on the fact had this been done at a mosque, all hell would be breaking loose. The Scamander in cheif would be giving a press conference on how this islamic bigotry will not be tolerated and Eric Holder will look into possible hate crime charges. Sorry lefties this is your baby, and your can of worms.
