This is the result of "hate crime" legislation. Utterly ridiculous that these men and women should be facing this much time for cutting some hair.(which, by the way, will grow back!) 90 days in county lockup for misdemeanor assault would be a more appropriate punishment for a "crime" that didn't even draw any blood. But 1-7 years and 15 for the ringleader? Whatever happened to making the punishment fit the crime?

BHO should pardon all of them on his way out.

They should have hired a black guy to give the haircuts. They never get charged with hate crimes. These sentences are way out of line. The judge committed a hate crime by handing them out.
