  • Is it time to punish false accusers? (Yes)

    Should deliberately false reports of sexual assault be subject to the same legal penalties as false reports of other felonies? Right now, accusers who lie about sexual abuse are criminally liable for filing a false report and perjury, as well as civil sanctions for defamation, but legal consequences rarely occur. The question was spotlighted by the accusations surrounding Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It was clear during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing: An accusation of sexual assault can devastate a man’s life, family and future. Those who reject the account of his main accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, don’t suggest bringing legal proceedings...

    TV producer Ryan Murphy called for stricter hate-crime laws during his Emmy acceptance speech Monday night. Murphy, who won the limited-series directing award for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” dedicated his award to the LGBTQ community. Murphy, the writer and executive behind "Pose" and "American Horror Story" added in his speech that "The Assassination of Gianni Versace" was in part about internalized and externalized homophobia. “One of out of every four LGBTQ people in this country will be the victim of a hate crime," he said, before naming some of the victims of spree killer Andrew Cunanan,...

    The next chapter in Dick Wolf‘s criminal justice franchise is officially in the works with NBC ordering 13 episodes of Law & Order: Hate Crimes. Per a release, this new series is “based on New York’s actual Hate Crimes Task Force, the second oldest bias-based task force in the U.S. The unit, which pledges to uphold a zero tolerance policy against discrimination of any kind, works under the NYPD’s real Special Victims Unit and often borrows SVU’s detectives to assist in their investigations.” As you might have been able to infer from that last sentence, the Hate Crimes team will...

    The president of a local chapter of the NAACP in South Carolina said he was racially profiled in April by a police officer when he was pulled over for a traffic violation, but body camera footage released by the Timmonsville Police Department contradicts the reverend’s claims. “TONIGHT I WAS RACIALLY PROFILED by Timmonsville Officer CAUSE I WAS DRIVING A MERCEDES BENZ AND GOING HOME IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD,” Jarrod Moultrie posted on Facebook April 13. Timmonsville Police Officer Chris Miles stopped Moultrie for not engaging his turn signal before turning, according to the officer’s body camera footage and Moultrie’s Facebook...

    Authorities are so far refusing to point to racism as a motive after a black man who vowed to shoot up a school and “kill all white people” reportedly murdered six random white people along biking trails in Kansas City, Missouri. According to this, police say 22-year-old Frederick Demond went on a random killing spree last August, leaving six strangers dead along walking and biking paths. Five were middle-aged white men, while one victim was a homeless white woman. All six had been shot with a handgun. Scott was indicted for all six murders late last week. The Washington Post...

    What is the source of dhimmitude—which in many ways paralyzes responses to Islam—in the West? First a definition: “dhimmitude,” which was coined by the late Christian president of Lebanon, Bashir Gemayel, and popularized by writer Bat Ye’or, is a neologism based on the Arabic word, dhimmi—that is, a non-Muslim (generally a Christian or Jew) who falls under Islamic rule and, as a price for maintaining their religion, accepts an inferior social standing. Simply put, the dhimmi must know his or her place and never rock the boat, including by seeking equal rights with Muslims. While this is the classic and...

    Fifteen years? For vandalism? He smashed lights, cameras, and windows at a mosque, and left some bacon by the front door. The vandalism is inexcusable and the bacon obnoxious, but fifteen years? The sentence, says AP, “had a hate crime enhancement.” In other words, he is being made an example of. Because he did this at a mosque, he is getting this draconian sentence. If he had broken windows and smashed lights and cameras at a church, his sentence wouldn’t have been nearly as severe. But all too many American authorities today hold to the false notion that Muslims are...

    Hate crimes rose for the second straight year in 2016, with increases in attacks motivated by bias against blacks, Jews, Muslims and LGBT people, according to FBI statistics released Monday. There were more than 6,100 hate crimes last year, up about 5 percent over the previous year. In 2015 and 2016, that number was driven by crimes against people because of their race or ethnicity. More than half the 4,229 racially motivated crimes were against black people, while 20 percent were against whites, the report shows. And Jews were targeted in more than half the 1,538 crimes that were motivated...

Police say Cabrera now claims he was stabbed by a rival graffiti crew in East Palo Alto while he was tagging...

    Racial slurs were written on the dormitory message boards of five black cadet candidates at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School earlier this week. Lt. Col. Allen Herritage, director of public affairs for the academy, said the slurs were discovered Monday. One cadet candidate’s mother posted a photo on her Facebook page Wednesday that shows the words “go home n*****r” written on the white board outside her son’s room. “This is why I'm so hurt!” the mother said in her post, which was at first public but then taken offline Thursday. “These young people are supposed to bond and protect...
