Re: And the hits keep coming...

Makes sense to me. Religion/Clergy invented marriage, the government co-opted it and now progressives want to change the definition. Let the folks that invented it, control it. Let the government handle the legal/contractual aspects.

Re: Before They Take The Facebook Page Down Or Change It

It's hard to believe people are so concerned for the legal niceties toward a mass murderer. Sure, he's innocent until proven guilty. If he isn't proven guilty, the enhanced charges mean nothing. If he is guilty, throw the book at him. It's not this scumbag I'm concerned about. He's gonna be found g...

Re: Before They Take The Facebook Page Down Or Change It

If someone's thoughts are about having sex with children, he's free to think those thoughts. But when he decides to act out his fantasies he has crossed a line and it's no longer OK. Absolutely. There are laws against that. They don't add additional charges because he thought about it first though.

Re: Before They Take The Facebook Page Down Or Change It

It's possible it's intended to makes sure a really horrible person stays put away... But a person shouldn't be deemed "really horrible" and "stay put away" because of their thoughts. Again, I asked this before, but why should a person that shoots a union member on a picket line while shouting, "Die...

Re: Before They Take The Facebook Page Down Or Change It

Surely you would agree that painting hateful, anti-Semitic symbols on the front of a synagog it a more heinous crime than common graffiti sprayed on fences and lamp posts. Two different crimes completely. In the case of the fence and lamp post, a graffiti artist/gang member tagging said items, is j...

Re: Before They Take The Facebook Page Down Or Change It

TT I think you just made my point - if pre-meditated murder is hate, why do we need hate crime laws, we already have murder laws. That wasn't my point. If I decide to kill my neighbour, for any reason at all, that isn't necessarily a hate crime. But if I kill my neighbour because for no other reaso...

Re: Before They Take The Facebook Page Down Or Change It

In a way, Lester proves my point as to why I have issue with the whole "hate crime" approach and the people that choose when and how to apply it. The tragedy in Charleston was certainly a heinous, violent and purely evil act. No doubt about it. Certainly all evidence points to murder in the first de...

Thought police. Also it does nothing to improve race relations and ultimately a colorblind society. In other words - It's like quotas for criminals. Indeed. If my neighbor hates me and shoots me because of it, it's a shooting plain and simple. There shouldn't be extra charges because he hated me.

Kasich and Walker are my two faves. We don't need another "Senator" in a management position. It's like putting the top guy in the sales department in charge of programming.

Re: Before They Take The Facebook Page Down Or Change It

Was the Boston Marathon Bombing classified as a "Hate Crime"? The Fort Hood Shooting was classified as "workplace violence". Did the Savopoulos slayings have a federal "hate crime" investigation opened? Was there a justice department investigation regarding the Steven Utash incident? Seems to me tha...
