The absurdity of Hate crime laws
Here is some news out of Buffalo New York further proving that hate crime laws are only for certain people, not all people.
Five black teenagers are accused of roaming through a Lovejoy neighborhood late Friday night, shouting racially charged threats and stabbing three young white men, including a recently discharged Marine.
A week ago, five white men in the Seneca-Babcock area were charged with attacking a black man with a baseball bat and shouting racial slurs at him.
Guess which group got charged with a hate crime?
Captain Ed succinct as alway says that hate-crime legislation is "self-defeating, hypocritical, and opposed to the best instincts of American jurisprudence." Also that "It leaves far too much possibility for capricious enforcement and application by politically-correct district attorneys, making a mockery of equal treatment under the law."
It's time to end this farce but too many politicians give in to political correctness. So this double standard is will be with us for the forseeable future.
