If I lived to be a hundred..I will never understand this kind of violence. I don't know how 2 sixteen year old boys could be that filled with hate.

Oh wait..this is probably class warfare instead of a hate crime.

I expect Jesse Jackson to denounce this horrible act right away.

Mom, Grandma, Jesse Jackson, etal...

They’ve more than likely heard nothing but how they’ve been oppressed all their lives.

It still doesn’t excuse their behavior...

We have an entire nation of “Reverend” Wrights out there preaching Hate Whitey, Blame Whitey. Sooner or later this was bound to happen.

If the victim was black and his assailants white, it would be front page news. Don’t expect this to get much coverage.

The most important thing is to hope for the victim’s fast and full recovery.

Sounds like attempted murder to me.Committed by 16 year olds that can easily be tried as adults.Give them 30 years for attempted murder,etc....but “hate crimes” are BS.I’d never vote guilty on any hate crime charge.

If, from Day One, the 16-yr olds are pumped full of racist hatred, 24/7, and raised without any parental restraint, it is almost bound to happen.

It is important to understand this. Crimes like this are going to be an increasing part of our life -- until something is done to reverse the course of our culture.

Duh, black on white crime is, by definition, NOT a hate crime. Whites are evil and deserve what they get. Damn evil oppressors.

Until we can get hate crime law off the books, apply it equally to everyone. So that blacks and other minorities don’t get special treatment.

Once hate crime law (which is bad law) can finally be done away with, then let it never come back. Until then we can’t let minorities skate by with lesser sentences for specifically targeting whites to attack.

Oh, its not that hard to understand. Its the natural result of 60 years of conditioning. 60 years to convince one large group of people that another large group of people intentionally oppresses them and is entirely responsible for any discomfort or suffering they've ever experienced.

Remember this kid the next time you have some newsman or movie producer hammer you over the head with stories of racist America.

This can’t be a hate crime. The victim is White and male.

For those who are interested:

The young man managed to pull off his shirt and get the fire put out. He has first-degree burns to his face. His eyelashes, eyebrow and some of his hair was singed. He has been released from the hospital and is at home.

It’s time for my tried and true punishment. Fool proof, works everytime.

.If they survive they will be so wigged for the rest of their lives them may take some very powerful sedatives, other drugs for their newfound phobias and even smoke pot all day, just to stay calm and not scream at the walls.

They are boils on the body of life “that” need to be lanced, cartarized and then cut open, left to ooze.

Or if that is too strong:

We could throw them in a room full of rocking chairs with several long tail cats and they are in sufficient shock and terror flood the room to a height of about three feet and then release 3-5 adolescent Tiger Sharks

.But that’s just how I feel about it.

Your mileage may vary.

The Huffington Post article says the FBI calculates more hate crimes are targeted towards black people.

I don't doubt that the HuffPo reported that, but when's the last time you heard of white-on-black random crime? It's extremely unintuitive.

Reminds me of when I heard that a bunch of white lacrosse players had raped a black, crack-ho, exotic dancer. Nope. Didn't compute.

I don't know that they're filled with hate -- they've just never been taught how to love. Or, if that's too sappy-sounding, they've never been taught to respect human life.

The liberal view is that we are all born civilized and caring. Nonsense. We're little wild animals who must be taught to be responsible human beings. These weren't.

Can’t be a hate crime.

As anyone who reads the popular media can tell you, a hate crime only occurs when a Black is attacked by a White.

Doggone, I know you’re right..but I hate it that you’re right.

Your response is strikingly similar to my own. It wasn't what I started to write. But it's what came out.

And, regrettably, I had to agree with the conclusion. This kind of senseless violence will be with us until the liberal scourge is scoured from our country.

Clarification requested:

One boy wore a blue beanie, a blue jacket and blue/green Nike Air Jordans with the number 23

In the context of geographical location and season, what is the equivalent of this 'beanie'? Given it's late winter, is it more like a winter sweater cap seen here

or like a religious cap worn by some Nation-of-Islam members seen in this image

Call me a kook for this but I believe this is something Obama wants in this country, the blacks agains’t the whites. He wants an all out war between the races and it damn sure is brewing. There isn’t much left that is needed to fan the flames enough to turn into a major race war. He knows this will bring major violence to our cities. Once the shooting starts, he can delcare it to be a revolution agains’t him (due to his color) and stop any and all operation of this country. No more elections so he can delcare himself “The One” all powerful ruler of the nation. The blacks will all cheer him and fall down on their knees before him as they already now do. Nothing can stop him.....well ALMOST nothing.

I guess there's an argument to be made for this position.

Until then we can’t let minorities skate by with lesser sentences for specifically targeting whites to attack.

I'm afraid I can't vote "guilty" with the rare minority defendant just to prove a point if I'm gonna vote "not guilty" for the large majority of such defendants...who are white.

That is not asking you to be inconsistent. It’s asking you to be consistent in the application of the hate crimes laws.

Do you have some statistics that prove your inherent assertion that whites are the perpetrators of a “large majority” of race-based attacks?

Do you know that according to DOJ stats that in 90% of all black/white violent crimes the white person is the victim and the black person is the perpetrator?

Sorry,should have been more specific.I'd be willing to bet that the large majority of those *charged* with hate crimes are white.

Basically I,as a juror,would refuse to "apply" hate crime laws regardless of the race of the defendant or the "victim".And if my hunch is correct if I'm ever seated on a jury hearing a hate crime case the defendant will be white so consistency wouldn't be an issue.

So,if called upon to hear a hate crime case the defendant can count on a vote of "not guilty" from me on any such charge regardless of race,gender,etc,etc.I can make no such promises regarding any charge of assault...attempted murder...etc,etc,etc.It *all* depends on the evidence presented during the trial.

I understand where you are coming from.

For me, until such bad law as hate crimes are finally gotten rid of as a legal precedent, it is only fair that it be applied equally to all people, and not just benefit those groups deemed to be politically correct. Othewise even more injustice will be done under the guise of “law” and only further cement in people’s minds it’s okay to legally discriminate against whites - but no other groups.

I bet most so called hate crimes are committed ON white people. But you never hear them called that. It’s time to do away with the silly designation “hate crime” (as opposed to what, a love crime ;) ).
