    Post-Zimmerman Hate Crime

    I can't help but think that:

    1) these perpetrators might not have been so emboldened in, say, Texas as opposed to the 'gun free' District of Columbia
    2) the national news should be more interested in such stories

    Adams Morgan hate crime was motivated by Zimmerman verdict, police say - The Washington Post

    1. You are assuming these thugs need a reason. They don't......just sounds like a good justification for their feeble minds.
    2. They pulled that stunt in Florida, and we would be reading about two dead thugs at the hands of their armed victim....notice we don't have much of that going on down here.

    Walking by yourself at 1:30 in the am on a dark street. His situational awarenes should have been through the roof. Sounds like a "normal" robbery with a little racial intimidation thrown in for fun.
    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    I think it was a robbery, and they just thought they would "have a little fun".

    All violent crime is hateful. I couldn't care less what their motivation was. 'Like Zonker said, there shoulda been three dead thugs there.

    Don't worry Eric Holder will be right on it. I'm holding my breath in anticipation.

    This certainly reflects well on the civil rights community...

    But, you notice the "gun community" isn't protesting, calling for justice...insisting on the return of jim crow laws, with curfews on blacks after certain times of night... We don't scream and rant and rave to curtail all of their rights based on the actions of a few... even when the actions of those few are not legal.

    Had the victim been carrying, and shot one or all of the attackers, what a different tune we'd be hearing today...

    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Nothing more than pack mentality, it has been going on for years.

    The problem is that "pack mentality" is not really a racial thing, it is a human thing.

    I've never understood the outrage over hate crimes. You beat the crap out of someone or you kill them, it's still the same to the victim. "Oh, geeze, you are killing me because of my ethnicity? Now I really feel bad...."

    Makes about as much sense as reducing a sentence for love crimes.

    People with low I.Q.'s with no empathy or responsibility breading like rabbits, compassion, work ethic, respect or daddy tend to gravitate toward one another.

    The Federal government is mostly responsible for the "you owes me" mentality in which robbery, assault is justified in the criminal mind. Any perceived injustice is cause for mayhem, looting, robbery, assault and murder.

    That's the gene pool that needs to be sanitized and not propped up by whiney liberals and the government.
