Hate Crimes and the homeless
I’m not sold one way or the other on the hate crime debates. Sullivan takes issue with the idea of the homeless being protected under such laws:
The homeless become the latest politicized minority to have hate crime laws passed for them. Presumably, bias crimes can also be extended to home-owners – on the same lines as sexual orientation, race and religion. What a boondoggle.
Well, it made me think of A Clockwork Orange…
And I’ve heard of (rare) cases where homeless are lit on fire or beaten, essentially just for being transients. Something to keep in mind….
