I'd have guessed the premise for a new Fox sitcom, but Florida makes sense.

You sure about that? All I'm seeing is that Manatee, FL is a pretty farked up place.

It must've already changed because the story is now:
Man Arrested for Procuring Crack
Cocaine for Deputy's Wife's Dad


I might have to bookmark that link as it's full of fail-win.

um, what are you linking to? nothing on that page about this story.

and this headline seems to be making up a lot of sh*t that isn't covered in the linked-to article.

A hate crime? I think the reporter is full of shiat. I just read FL's definition of felony battery and what I read doesn't rise to the standard. Sounds more like misdemeanor battery to me.

"Dickinson"

I bet.

Just as any weapon firing bullets is "an AK-47" and anyone who kills more than one person at a time is now a "mass murderer"--so any crime where one party is a minority of any kind and they both hated each other is now a "hate crime", if you are a journalist.

"Sheriff's Office Warns Citizens of Recent Horrible Phone Scam Possibly Targeting Hispanics"

That sounds terrible.
 
2012-08-21 03:24:31 PM
The hate crime part seems superfluous, after reading the article. Doesn't sound like it's a cause of the attack. More like the dog was.

Sounds to me like this is a drunk asshole who would have fought anyone coming down the street. He may have shouted different epithets, like hipster, or commie, or something else, just not sure why he gets more jail for beating up one group than any other. A beating is a beating, regardless of whether the motivation is sexual orientation or he simply didn't like the Auburn shirt his neighbor was wearing.

On the contrary! I smell opportunity.

Either

a) That's silly, gay people don't live in trailer parks.

or

b) The economy is really so bad gay people have sunk to trailer parks.

The idea behind a hate crime is to punish people not just for the assault, but also for the implicit act of terrorism toward the group in question.

Th FA doesn't say anything about any homosexuality. Subby is just making that up to be cute. The reporter is probably making up the hate crime part. The FA mentions that after one of the victims pushed Dickerson back in his house, "another man began beating up the victim". How is this other man and is he under arrest?

Conclusion: the reporter really doesn't know squat and just needed some crime copy for his editor, so he skimmed the police press summary and made some shiat up.

A little cotton rope and some K-Y and it could be quite a party.

there should be no such thing as a 'hate crime', it's just bullshiat. a crime is a crime.

Comes to the same thing. I guess because it took place in a trailer park and at least one party was white trash aka 'The kind of person who would commit a hate crime" = A HATE CRIME OMG HEADLINES!@!!
