Popcorn Johnny: I'm gonna fly my ex-wire over there and have a few words with her.
doglover: Nina Haagen Dazs: I'm not a fan of hate crime legislation either but it seems appropriate here.This is exactly the time you shouldn't use it.You don't start an opiate addiction by saying "Boy, I'd like to spend my whole life chasing the dragon. I'm gonna go start an opiate addiction." You start it in legitimate case of pain that opiates work well to treat. Then you slowly build tolerance, increase the dose instead of weaning off, and well things go downhill from there.Allowing hate crimes to gain traction will just lead to more legislation like hate crimes. Pretty soon you're in a Les Miserables situation where stealing a loaf of bread for your starving baby will get you 20 years' hard labor because you stole from a gay baker and so it's 3 days' time for the theft and 19 years 362 days' time for the hate crime and child endangerment by getting their parent arrested.But again you'd think necklacing a kid would get you more punishment than 3 years regardless.
BigLuca: Really? No "that boy was FLAMING" jokes yet? Well ... actually that is probably for the best.
PC LOAD LETTER: doglover: They don't even have a death penalty any more. Which is odd because England practically invented the modern idea of the humane death penalty in their Imperial age. Before that it was more... creative.And what did drawing and quartering do to the crime rate? Zippo. Nada. Zilch.
doglover: Because all crimes are hate crimes.
RatMaster999: I thought the Brits loved their queens...
cman: This kid is gonna do it againBut of course you will be there with more "rehabilitation" to help.
doglover: Nina Haagen Dazs: What, no hate crime penalty enhancer England?Because all crimes are hate crimes.Also England is to law enforcement what Canada is to a tropical paradise.
