While we are talking about annoying phrases, another I can’t stand is “Hate Crimes Law.” When was the last time you had heard of a “Love Crime”?
Yesterday in New York City, a white thug, Nicholas Minucci, who took a baseball bat to the head of black car thief, Glenn Moore, was sentenced to 15 years. Among other things, he was convicted of a hate crime. I wonder, what is the average sentence for people who take a baseball bat (or other heavy object) to the head of another? I’ll bet it isn’t even close to 15 years.
Anyway, Steve Dunleavy has this take on it:
But if it was a race-hate crime, what of John Broderick Hehman, 20, a New York University student? On April 1 of this year, on 125th Street in Harlem, a wolf pack of minority kids chased him into traffic screaming, “Get whitey” and “Get the white boy.”
A Mercedes-Benz knocked him down, and witnesses, Harlem residents, reported that the wolf pack laughed as Hehman’s lifeblood ebbed away.
No, authorities said, it was not a hate–crime murder — the intent was larceny, not race bias.
Why didn’t DA Brown arrest Glenn Moore? “Thinking about stealing a car and actually stealing a car are two different things,” Brown said.
Au contraire, mon frere. By going to Howard Beach with his friends to steal a car, Moore committed the overt act the law requires for a charge of conspiracy to commit larceny.
Get a life, Dickey boy — or be accused of reverse racism.
I wonder, who will be the first brave researcher to look into whether there is a racial disparity in how hate crime laws are applied?
