A crime is a crime. If I kill somebody or beat them, how is my motive (aside from self defense etc) important? I beat someone because they are ‘blue’, I beat someone to rob them…same crime?
Watch out for the thought police in all of this!January 3, 2007 at 11:34 am #38482
I think what Adam is getting at, is they are limiting our free speech, through legislature, that is designed to make us more peaceful. You can’t make people see eye to eye, or live and let live, with laws, only ideasJanuary 3, 2007 at 4:06 pm #38487CrazyCraigMember

Question authority on the important things.
