re: DA decides against Hate Crime in Gas Station Beating


meh, hate crimes are harder to prove, with an extra burden. DAs want shite fast and easy with as little work to be done as possible. They are gubmint workers after all. He can already put this skell away for good as a multiple offender, which is cake. Why bother? You guys get pissed over nothing.

He was arrested I think. The other thug was just cited. If he's got prior felonies then all the DA needs is any type of new felony conviction to trigger the habitual offender sentence. So a 2nd deg battery would do the trick here. He's probably facing 20-life.

Y'all are making this into more than it needs to be. Of course it is a hate crime. Unfortunately prosecuting it as such is not so cut and dry. The things he is being charged with carry almost the same sentencing and will be light years easier to prosecute.

Come on guys. You can get this stuff just from occasionally watching Law and Order.

The victim and his family also did not wish for Dickerson, 41, to be charged with a hate crime, Moore said.


Wonder if this was because of what others' have cited in this thread or some other reason.

I am curious has a black ever been charged and convicted of a hate crime against a white in the USA?

A witness, Mykeisha Henderson, has said the assault began with Dickerson teasing the victim about wearing a pink shirt, but she did not recall hearing any remarks from Dickerson about the white man being in the “wrong neighborhood.”

Man, this thread's responses kind of suck. Why waste time and resources on something hard to prove when you can charge him as a habitual offender and lock him up for a very long time?

I agree with the idea that the law is a piece of shit, and that its implications are incredibly biased in favor of minorities, thus, this situation is therefore somewhat hypocritical; however, hate crime charges in this instance could also serve as a dangerous precedent for the DA that is far more likely to affect white defendants in this day in age.

I would humbly submit to the OT to realize this was a calculated move by Hillar. If you don't at least consider that concept in the given context, you are approaching the level of sophistication of a Trayvon-supporter.

First reaction: outrage

Second reaction: good, hate crime laws are stupid and should be ridiculously hard to prove

What's the relevance of black and white?

Why exactly? DA knew he couldn't prove hate crime so he didn't charge it. Why charge something if you know you can't prove it? Seems you have zero knowledge of how the legal system works.

Tacking an extra five years onto a life sentence does seem rather pointless.
