Popcorn Johnny: I'm gonna fly my ex-wire over there and have a few words with her.


It has ceased to be. It is deceased. It is no more. It bereft of life. It is an ex-wire.

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.


Herpity derpity doooo!

3 1/2 years? Wow England is pretty draconian with their anti-smoking laws.

England can't have murders; they have gun control.

They are a "civilized" society.

He didn't intend to kill him?

Wat do he think setting fire to someone covered in oil do? He shouldn't go to jail; he should go to Johns Hopkins. Surely he's the cure for cancer and Alzheimer's percolating around inside that brain-pan of his.

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.


I heard it cut the crime rate in half.

doglover: Because all crimes are hate crimes.


So shoplifting is exhibiting hate for the object you're stealing?  The store employees that you ignore?

Why wouldn't we allow a murderer too enjoy a little bit of life?

/from what I read - the murderer didn't intend on killing the teen. He just thought dousing the naked boy with baby oil and setting him aflame would be hilarious.
//and that was factored in to why he was charged with the lesser crime.

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.


It's the 3 1/2 years that I can't get over. It took that kid 1 day to die from his injuries. Even loaded up with morphine, he would have suffered horribly. For being gay.
