Finally! We waited so long for this. Would you mind if I cross post this on my blog?

Only one?

Deidra - You never need to ask my permission to use anything you find on my blogs...

Woozie - Only one at this point. I'm uncertain the reason for not charging the others as well..

Well, at least that is a start.

Villager said...

Regina - Yes...the first step of a long journey...

Why have hate crime laws if they are so hard to prove?

You have to be standing next to the victim with a knife in your hand holding a sign with a racial slur on it; with your DNA splattered all over the victim's body, before the federal government will declare it a hate crime.

Oh, I forgot, you must over the age of 17 while doing it, too.
