re: DA decides against Hate Crime in Gas Station Beating


I think the notion of hate crimes is dumb.

But pathetic ruling in this instance if we have to have the dumb laws.

They aren't mutually exclusive. They could charge him with a hate crime and bitch him even if the jury came back with just aggravated battery.

Agreed. But as long as they are on the books they should be applied consistently.

No
As long as they are on the books, they should be ignored.

Wasn't there several witnesses besides the family, and they all heard him say the racial remarks?

Doesn't get any easier for proving a hate crime than that IMO.

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



I find this hard to believe.

i dont think some people read the article

quote:

Instead, Moore said he intends to charge Dickerson as an habitual offender, potentially subjecting him to a life sentence.


quote:

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.
