    Wonder if they'll prosecute this as a hate crime.

    I think you have the wrong picture. The man pictured only shot his wife, killed his 7 year old son and fed the remains to pigs.

    You're right. My bad. Then they should just feed the above guy to the same group of pigs. I'd then drop those pigs from planes over known ISIS grounds.

    Here's the best I could find on the real guy. I'll reserve what I want to say about their striking similarities for my own amusement so as not to offend others :D

    I think he was misunderstood. I think it all stems from the time he was 8yrs old and the youth basketball league he played in at the time kept score and standings. His team must have gone 0'fer and he's never dealt with the psychological trauma of that situation. Really, Mr. Dean is a victim in all of this. He should be allowed back in school and the rest of the kids should undergo sensitivity training.

    Now all black people have to come out against this guy.

    What a pain this new standard is ... where some group has to denounce a crime or else be associated with it.

    What a stupid standard to live by.

    Right? So stupid.

    That's not PC of you Fine Sir. They are African Americans by today's standards. Unless they are from the Southside then they are ChiRaques.

    Why would this be a hate crime? Those laws were put in place to try and reduce violence against minorities.

    No, hate crimes are meant to dissuade racial violence and bigotry, and work in all directions, regardless of the race of the perpetrator.

    they were put in place in response to studies that indicated an increase in crimes motivated by many types of prejudice.

    Most likely they will. After all he specifically said it was motivated by race, and I'm pretty sure by prosecuting it as a hate crime they can get a tougher sentence than they otherwise could considering he was caught before carrying out his plan.

    Yes, it's stupid. Nobody should have to come out against this guy - it should already be obvious to any reasonable person (of any race or whatever) that this guy is a more or less isolated problem.

    18 U.S. Code § 249 - Hate crime acts
    An African-American can certainly be tried and convicted for a hate-crime against white people. It happens all the time. According to FBI statistics, roughly 19% of hate-crimes are perpetrated against white people.

    Thats not a "good" thing. But it does show that the laws were not put in place simply to benefit one group over another.

    I actually suspect learning early on that you won't always win is helpful. Kids learn to deal with these things while their brains and habits are still forming.

    I'm gathering that the concept of hate crimes were introduced by the Jews. At the top of search is the Anti-Defamation League and they're really big on defining and combating what they call hate crimes.

    I think hate crimes are a crock. A man who is killed out of hate is not deader than dead. There's a law for that. If a group is into killing another group, there are laws for that also.

    In New York, I ride the bus and see signs on it that says it's 7 years jail time and it's a felony to assault a bus driver. Am I not entitled to the same protection? It's like the Baby on Board signs of a generation ago. It's as though suddenly, all vehicles in the vicinity have to stop and allow the baby-bearing car safe passage. Kind of like what goes on when a school bus stops in today's world.

    It's a specific deterrent, not a value of specific lives. If plumbers were victimized with violence as much as bus drivers, then it would be a harsh sentence too.
