    How on earth is knocking out a 78 year old woman considered to show toughness? Now they're using Tasers, too? Cowardice is all this shows.

Odd how the definition doesn't use the word hate or animosity about a person's background. But I guess it's easier to lump them all in one term rather than race crime, gender crime, etc.

    Definitely would be labeled a hate crime if it were whites attacking blacks.
    Along with the fact you would get the usual suspects (Al sharpton, Jackson etc) all getting on their podiums calling for this racists to be smacked..

    In 2009, 1,500 blacks were convicted of hate crimes. What was the last hate crime that made national news? The dragging in Texas fifteen years ago? And probably the only reason it went nationwide is because of how the murder was carried out.

    Other than that, maybe you should pay better attention to your local news. I obviously see it; I don't know why you don't.

    The idea doesn't seem to be about "toughness," but about getting away with something.

    CNN and MSNBC haven't covered it, but Fox News has every day this week - because we all know that's the news channel for mean ole, racist, republican white people.

    Juggs, does Uncle Ruckus' post make you feel better?

    CNN covered it. It was the headline to their website earlier. MSNBC has an article on it too.

    Maybe the sites have had it, but other than fox on the TV, none have had it.

    Watch your statements folks. Discuss the topic at hand. No hate speech will be tolerated.

    Ok, they stated that they were committing these crimes because they were bored. So maybe they should be in school or get a job. Stop being a drain on our society.
