Why do you think they are not guilty? Do you really feel they didn't do it or just feel what they allegedly did was justified and that they should get away with it?

"Hate Crimes" are actions that depend on the persons thoughts at the time of the crime. Do we really want to convict people for their thoughts, and not their actions? Why is beating a gay man, more serious than beating a heterosexual man?

Seems that the activists are abusing our legal system..... The Prosecution works for the State and Assaults come in varying degrees of severity. The State prosecutes criminals as the criminal committed the crime against the State. ie, People of Texas vs. XXXXXXX. If the individual victim wants to sue then civil court then works for the individual.....

They are both equally as serious. Believe it or not the hate crime law also covers straight people but most gays are not going to hate and beat on straights for being straight.

Federal law supersedes state law and it's against the law to commit a hate crime against someone based on their sexual orientation.

1. then why did it take 3 guys to beat him?
2. if it was "self defense" for these 3 guys, why hasn't the police or sherrif's officers arrested burke after conducting their investigation of the crimes that ocurred? if there were evidence that shows burke did in fact begin attacking the 3 guys first, then he would've been arrested around the same time as the 3 guys, or even in stead of the 3 guys.

Since the supposed gay hate crime was imposed on 2% of cases have been prosecuted and they involved murder. They will let them plea bargain for a lesser sentence such assault with a deadly weopon the beer bottle, and assault with a barrel of burning wood. A lot depends on the guys previous records, and if the first they will do 6 months to a year in jail and some physchology anger managment classes. Actually the boy hopefully learned you don't hang out with red neck drunks and might stay with his on kind who have the lowest violence rate of anyone. Let the rednecks all f**k each other up. You know they eventually will.
