Sorry, I’m against it. Make the regular crime laws tough enough to cover ’em all.

Too “thought police-y” for me. Next thing we know, some black guy will be punished on hate crime grounds when he punches out some white dude for hitting on his white wife.

That isn’t hate, it’s paranoid insecure jealousy, with a touch of “my woman can’t handle it and maybe she doesn’t REALLY love me” thrown in, and dammit, that’s just not going to be fairly legislated.

Just sayin’. It’s hard to get into the moment, the individual circumstances, the mind in the situation that constitutes the infinite nature of the human condition.

Update: Just read IOZ. He’s good.
