    Mother of attack suspect speaks - VID
    Victims of the alledged attack speak - VID

    I heard about this yesterday on CNN. And this case ALSO raised an interesting question. If a group of white people beat down on some unsuspecting black person/person of visible minority, it's called a hate crime. So is this case any less of a hate crime because the roles are reversed? And according to the victims, the words "I hate Whites" was uttered at the time as well

    If convicted, said teens (under juevenile law) are looking at either household confinement. Or juvy untill the age of 25

    Shouldn't even be a question, a hate crime is a hate crime no matter who did what to who.

    Oh I agree completely D_C

    What I find particularly interesting a.k.a. irksome is that if the roles were reversed. Those same mothers you saw speaking would easily throw out the "Hate crime" card :rolleyes2  :redface2:

    Always one of those things that astounds me. A crime of violence against another person generally involves some kind of hatred. But if it's cross some race/culture/financial/neighborhood/pizza preferance line it becomes a "hate crime" and is somehow worse.

    I agree too. If it was the other way around those mothers would be going crazy playing the race card. I like the one video where they said "hate crime was added too late." Too late? WTF.

    There are plenty of reasons to hate people without having to resort to race.
