ANOTHER ‘Hate Crime’ Law…

I’ve written before in these pages with regard to so-called ‘hate crimes’.  I feel essentially, that the motivation behind a grisly torture and murder are really unimportant.

Torture is torture, and murder is murder.

The reasons in the criminal’s mind are largely unimportant.  The person still suffered and is still dead.

Getting inside a criminal’s head may be a good exercise for criminologists, but is a waste of time and money for legislatures.

And is the beginning of the thought police – political correctness run rampant.

“You are not allowed to hate somebody – that’s against the law!”

Wyoming just passed a hate crime law, pointing the finger 15 years later at the killer of Matthew Shepard.  It has been widely reported that he was killed because he was gay.

Turned out, he was selling sex for drugs.

This doesn’t mean he deserved to be tortured and killed.  Prosecuted maybe.

What was in the mind of his killer?  Was he thinking about Jesus, or his last Big Mac?

I   DON’T   CARE

‘Uncomfortable truth’ in Matthew Shepard’s death

Certainly LGBT persons need to be treated with repect.

And most folks don’t deserve to be tortured and killed.  Even if they are small-time criminals.

  1. I’ve always had a problem with the whole concept of classifying an already-illegal act as a “hate crime”. So it becomes double-plus illegaler, or something.

    What it is is the State’s attempt to give prosecutors even more labels to add to an arraignment, just like a “firearms misconduct” charge added to a shooting.

    Why don’t we cut to the chase and just drop a set of law books on the suspect?

  3. I hate hate crime laws. Not only is it the criminalization of thought, but it creates special classes of victims so that it’s worse to victimize one person than another.

    And yes, St. Shepherd was a drug deal gone wrong. It was all over the liberal media when that came out. Oh, wait.
