Quote from the article:

"Police said they charged him with aggravated assault, having No Reason To Believe It Was A Crime Of Bias.

"There's No Indications whatsoever with the suspect and the confrontation between the suspect and the victim that he Was Victimized Because That Is A Gay Bar," Phoenix police Officer James Holmes said."

No, it's not. He attacked this man with a hammer, did not rob him, nor take anything fr the bar. He's not charged with robbery.
Clearly it was hate crime.
Just because it was a gay bar and just because the bartender may have been gay doesn't make it a hate crime. Gays would like to see all crimes against any gay person be classified a hate crime. That's ridiculous.

The 'suspect' wanted money and cigarettes. When he was denied, he hit the guy with a hammer. He didn't take anything so I'll give you that technically it was not a robbery, it was also not a hate crime. It was an assault with a dangerous weapon.
