Weer'd thinks about Hate Crimes:
As much as it disgusts me to hear about “Hate Crime”, I see no valid reason to judge the crime any differently than crimes of passion, or crime for profit, or “honor killings” like this. You judge a man by his actions, not by what’s in his mind, or heart, and not by the tools in his hand.
This is odd for several reasons; first, Weer'd has been pretty much ok with white males shooting and killing people. But the second and larger point is that such thinking goes entirely against our entire system of justice which does account for intent. Laci can address this far better than I but IIRC there are around 20 categories of homicide that one could possibly get charged with. There's a world of difference between someone who plots a murder for months and carries it out and someone who gets into a bar fight and accidentally kills someone. Similarly, there's a ton of difference between someone spray paints a swastika on the side of a Synagogue and someone who paints "Red Sox Rule" on a garage door.
Pretty strange coming from Weer'd who believes the ATF goes after FFLs for making "typos."
