It's ridiculous that the grand jury's decision not to hand down a hate crime indictment was based on poor audio equipment. Does it state somewhere in the penal code that one of the elements to proving a hate crime is that there must be audio and or video of said crime in order to pursue a formal charge?
What about looking at the totality of the circumstances? Gay pride weekend , eye witnesses, not to mention the victims own testimony!
It's infuriating to think that electronic devices have more weight than a real live human beings own voice.
