David Klinghoffer explains why we

David Klinghoffer explains why we should get rid of the idiotic concept of hate/bias crimes and just treat all violent crime equally and harshly. I have personally never understood why it is worse to kill someone because they're gay or black than it is to kill someone because you wanted the $12.50 they had in their wallet. It adds a never ending and unnecessary complexity to the law, the natural result of politicians reacting to every news event with new legislation. I remember calls for special penalties for assault committed against teachers after some horrific school violence somewhere. It seems a direct violation of the principles of equal-treatment under the law when we start creating special victim classes. (link via Sasha Castel)
