Looks more to me like another cute float for the gay pride parade. The reporter didn't mention if the guy who owned the car is gay. Is it a hate crime if he's not actually gay? If someone writes "crazy n-word" on my car top, and I'm not black, can I still get it upped to hate crime status?
What if I call a black guy a tricky jew when he's not? Is that a hate crime too?

Try to get this stuff figured out, Press Telegram!

Recently, the Long Beach White minority were terrorized by implied threats of violence by No justice No peace! sign carriers. Yet, not only were those waving the signs about in public view not charged with any hate crime, the Government didn't even make an attempt to arrest them. Selective prosecution? Politically correct genocidal policy? YOU decide!

If the vandal thought their victim was gay, black, or a member of any other suspect classification when they committed their act, it does not matter if the victim actually was gay, black or whatever. These laws address the motive of the perpetrator, NOT the status of the victim. Try and keep up. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Exactly. Brave New Government is already making inroads to spend hard earned taxpayer money to get into our minds. Once Government is able to discover our innermost secrets, Government prosecutors will no longer need to rely on anecdotal evidence to convict persons for thinking "wrong" thoughts.

You clearly have no mind anyone would want to get into, therefore you would have nothing to worry about sweetie. FYI, motive is included as a prosecutable element in any number of other crimes. Sometimes it does help to actually know what you're talking about.

Why are you attacking me, Honey? I was agreeing with you and your premise. Brave New Government might use its high paid prosecutors to argue motive, but motive is often clouded by the self deceit that is hidden in the heart. According to yesterday's old technology:

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9)

"I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings." (Jeremiah 17:10)

"And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do." (Genesis 11:6)

So that means when Trayvon Martin called George Zimmerman a "creepy azz cracker," as he attacked him, and as his girl friend explained, by "creepy" he meant "gay," then Trayvon was guilty of a hate crime, and got what was coming to racist gay bashers, since Zim was neither white or gay. So if Trayvon had survived, he'd be doing prison time about now.

Thanks internet lawyer dude!

It looks like the alleged vandal confused the term 'f$$g' and the internet help page term 'FAQ'. Either way, his penmanship sucks.
Another blow for literacy.
And BTW, there's nothing wrong with being gay.
And the silver lining is... it's summer, put the top down.
