Police said as many as 11 students beat up an eighth-grader honor student in an apparent case of revenge. The victim, who is Hispanic, suffered severe injuries, and it was possible he may lose sight in one eye. It is not believed, however, that he was the victim of a hate crime. Police said the student who threw the first punch was also Hispanic, and the other students all come from diverse backgrounds.So, is his pain any less because everyone was "diverse?"
Is the crime any less because everyone was "diverse."
Hate Crime laws have become what everyone warned they would be - a nose in the tent of Common Law. Even worse - they are warping the way we look at all crime - to the shame of us all.
