Hate crimes are fake. Well, not entirely. Some crimes are done out of hate. But singling out one crime and making it somehow worse because of who it was done against is simply garbage.
Really. Think about it. If I were to commit a crime against a person of a different race, I would potentialy get a harsher penalty. Same goes for someone of a different race attacking me. Why? Wasn’t the same crime committed? Why does it matter the race of the victim or the race of the assailent?
A crime should have the same penalty for everyone. It shouldn’t change because of the color of one’s skin.
Unless you kill an albino. In that case, you should probably get more time because you’re killing superheroes. I saw Powder. I know what’s up.
