Only hate when gays or minorities are attacked. Doesn't count for Caucasians, silly rabbit.

While it is a hate crime chargining him has habitual offender seems to carry longer sentence and easier to convict

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

Instead, Moore said he intends to charge Dickerson as an habitual offender, potentially subjecting him to a life sentence. Moore had weighed charging Dickerson with a hate crime because of the racial overtones of the attack. A hate crime conviction in Louisiana enhances a felony sentence by up to five years, but prosecutors say it can be challenging to prove a crime was motivated by a suspect’s bias.


I don't know much about law, but couldn't he charge him with the hate crime and as an habitual offender?

Gotta keep the majority of BR happy. Amazing how different it would be if the races were reversed.
