Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

SF2680 is a bill in Minnesota legislature to increase penalties for crimes motivated by Bad Thoughts.

Punishing people for how they Act is traditional American justice; but punishing people for how they Think is the crime of Heresy.

That’s not who we are.  This bill is a mistake.

By golly, you’d best not think the wrong things when you’re attacking someone, or you’re really gonna get it!

  1. So everytime a random white guy is beat up by a group of “youths” of color, they will be prosecuted as a hate crime? Great! What….oh, I understand now. Its not to be used in those cases.

  2. I’ve always thought that they ought to have a category for love crimes instead, because so many people end serving undeservedly long sentences because they assaulted, raped, or killed someone because they loved them.

  3. Is this abomination motivated by lefty fags, breeders, crackers, spearchuckers, kikes, wops, Mick’s, beaners, slopes, dykes or Muzzies? It’s got so you can’t tell the players without a program, I swear.

  4. Apostrophe followed by S indicates possessive. Aside from the occasional bottle, Micks don’t have possessions – when have you ever seen a Mick with a pot to pee in or a window to throw it out of?

    There’s no apostrophe in Micks, Swiftee.

  5. What is the difference between a persons actual and perceived “race, color, sex, sexual orientation, disability as defined in section 363A.03, age, or national origin”
    Sex, disability, age, and disability seem to have an actual, legal definition, but not race, color, or sexual orientation.
    How do you tell the difference between a person who is actually homosexual and someone who is perceived to be homosexual?
    Looks unconstitutional to me.

  6. This crime is all too typical of what goes on here, in a county with a population of less than 150k:
    “Barawis, a paroled ex-con wanted by police, was shot dead by officers Feb. 5 after he allegedly drove toward them at the Puainako Town Center McDonald’s restaurant.
    Yanagawa, wanted for failure to return from a prison work furlough, was killed in a shootout with police four days later in the Hilo Wal-Mart parking lot.”

    The reason given for the initial shooting was that the victim recognized the shooter because he had been in jail with him, and the victim called him by his jail nickname instead of his new gang nickname.
