Not to excuse their behavior but were they really hate crimes or could they have been crimes of extreme dislike? Maybe they were only extreme reactions to feelings of moderate aversion?
Do they have a machine that registers the emotional attachment/detachment to crime?
Prosecute the crimes and drop this leftist “Hate Crime” BS. Even if it is a bunch of leftists being prosecuted for them. Thought crime prosecution is a very, very slippery slope.
