Holder said the hate crime bill would only cover those groups singled out in history.
That's a little bit of a spin on what he said. I don't remember his exact words at the moment, they were similar to that, but in response to something he was asked.
Basically he was responding to something like why does it not cover so-and-so, and that was his response. But of course it doesn't mean that, LOL.
The questioners could not get him to say it covered everyone, he said only those with a history of hate.
Ok, he was, I believe, referring to homosexuals and other GLBT persons (transsexuals, etc). In other words, persons who do have a history of being hated on, and that some state laws don't do enough about.
But the bottom line is that he did not specify that it doesn't cover a white victim, like that. When I saw your post I was thinking it did (which was why I watched it).
If that really is the case, I do want to know about that.
This is why their has never been a black, hispanic, or muslim convicted of a hate crime.
Are you sure about that? I could be wrong but I think there have been.
As much as the muslim serviceman hated the non muslims he killed he was not charged with a hate crime,
If you are talking about who I think you are talking about, he was charged under the Military Code.
Keep in mind that the United States Armed Forces has it's own code for dealing with criminal justice matters. To the best of my knowledge hate crimes are not a part of the Military's laws.
If the same thing had happened under civilian jurisdiction I would imagine he would have been charged with a hate crime.
and Holder and his hate crime bill is the reason why.
Again, please show me where the law specifically says that it only applies to one race (or one whatever) and not the other.
If that is true I will be so in agreement with you, and so upset at them. And so determined to get that changed.
But I really don't think it is. I don't see how they could get away with wording it like that. And it is very illegal, if it is so. It could probably be struck down. IF it is. But again, I really don't think it is.
But I could be wrong. If I am, I would like to know it. All you have to do is show me SPECIFICALLY where. I would appreciate that information.
I hope I'm not wrong about this. Because if I am that means there really is Reverse Discrimination rampant (even moreso than I thought it was) Of course I would rather know than not know.
So yes, if the hate crime law REALLY DOES cover one race (or whatever) and not the other(s), please show me. I would seriously like to know about that.
