Hate crime legislation should be abolished.

Btw, Tammy Bruce - radio host and former head of the largest (LA) chapter of N.O.W. - makes an excellent case for the abolition of hate crime legislation in The New Thought Police: Inside the Left's Assault on Free Speech and Free Minds She illustrates, for one, how hate crime legislation especially hurts women. http://www.amazon.com/The-New-Thought-Police-Assault/dp/0761...

I feel strongly about this Knock Out phenomenon, too. But I agree with those who say that a different tact needs to be employed. Personally, I'd support something I read is being considered: that perps, whether under or over 18, be treated the same, i.e., as adults.

I agree. It's as amazing as Norma McCorvey's story.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger wrote the forward? I agree, the fewer laws the better.

Chesterton was right:
He who will not live by the Ten Commandments will live by the ten thousand commandments.

Hate Crime? More like Stupid Crime

I don't think this is necessary. Sufficient laws are in place to deal with these Crimes without some sub-label of "Hate" attached to it. A crime is a crime is a crime.

How about local and state governments deal with this without the Federal government needing to unnecessarily getting involved. This petition goes against the grain of "less government involvement".

A good thought and addition to the conversation but the "solution" sought out is flawed.

Just my honest opinion.

You are correct

simply petitioning the White House to denounce these attacks would have been the better way to go.

Sure, yet I'm still not sure how it's nothing more than symbolic

I don't really need the government to denounce these acts before I'm like, "Oh, ok. Yes! These acts are horrible crimes. Thank you. Up until this official denouncement, I thought these kids were just having a good time."

This is assault. Just because it's a stupid Meme doesn't require special recognition.

Amen

Amen

You need to ReThink your support for this petition

If someone is assaulted or injured that is already a crime against the individual, no further law is needed. Hate crime is a wedge to get do gooders a means to intervene unnecessarily.

Do Not sign this petition it is anti liberty.

I'd rather much see someone

I'd rather much see someone across the road witness to the knockout, run across the street and imediataly transpire to knockout the guy who knocked out the original person, and then go check to see if the original knocked out person is ok

Punch

Looks like someone beat you to it:

The New York authorities describe a recent series of such attacks and, because Jews have been singled out in these attacks, are considering prosecuting these assaults as “hate crimes.”

And, unfortunately for those who don't consider it a hate crime, the game was initially called "Polar bear hunting" which inturn implies the hunting down of whites and the carrying out of attacks upon them. This isn't new either.

Just look for the book "White Girl Bleed Alot" by Colin Flaherty.

Maybe I should have left out the Hate Crime part

and simply petitioned the White House to denounce these attacks.

Justification

This is where I part with a majority of the opinions here at the DP.

It is a hate crime, no matter how it is touched up by MSM. The attackers are black, the victims are white, the game has been played for many years with hardly ANY coverage by the MSM. Chicago was the worst area of offenses in these types of games and now that it can be posted for everyone to see it only validates what the MSM did not want to expose.

So long as people like AL Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and oganizations like the SPLC openly protect, and promote, black individuals from crimes that may or maynot have race as a motivation then whites have everyright, under the current system, to promote the protection of whites using this same system with the same justification of hate crimes.

No, not charged with a "hate crime"...

should instead be charged with attempted murder.

yes

It has resulted in at least 7 deaths. Like you said, this is attempted murder.

(google - knockout game deaths)

Yes...I went too far

I should have simply had petitioned the White House to denounce these attacks.

Supreme Court rules:

Police Do Not Have a Constitutional Duty to Protect Someone

The Supreme Court ruled that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm.

A crime is a crime. Who cares

A crime is a crime. Who cares if race has anything to do with it? If i kill someone because of their race, what difference does it make, if I kill someone for other reasons? Like because of their shoes or their cars! Its stupid, stop this man.
