    Probably because they foolishly believe what the Constitution says and criminal laws should fall within the jurisdiction of state government UNLESS it is a crime specifically against the federal government, against the United States or involving borders.

    I don't see this changing anything as all it does is declare it is a hate crime. It already was a hate crime if for racial reasons. How is it less of a hate crime if killed by being dragged being a pickup truck or shot in the head because of race?
    How do you like being under government ordered house arrest for the crime of existing?

    How racist is it that they left tar and feathering black people still legal? They didn't even outlaw castrating young black men to protect white women!

    Both the Senate and House have passed legislation that will make lynching a Federal crime. President Trump is expected to sign the bill. I hope he does sign this bill it is way past time for this law.

    How far will partisan beliefs go, will those who think Trump can so no right support his signing this law or be agianst it simply because Trump is for it?
    I don't get it, do we need to a law that say murder by firearm is illegal or can we just make murder illegal?
    Same with lynching, lynching is just a form of physical abuse and physical harm. Assault and battery would cover all lynching's as well as the add on unlawful restraint and kidnapping. So why the need to call it out by name.
    Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, liberal, fanatical, criminal.

    Virtue signalers have so much virtue, no amount of signaling is too much.
