33. but the only way to know the difference is to "get into my head"...
If I beat up Jane Jones as an indication of my enmity toward green-eyed people in general, then it's a crime against Jane Jones first of all, but also against all green-eyed people who are thereby marked out for intimidation.
premeditated murder can be proven....there will be actually actions that indicated that it was premeditated, whereas the only way to know that I beatup Jany because of her eye color is to make some assumptions of how i feel. How the psychs will do that is nothing more than voodoo. Will then go back to my drawings in elementary school where i put a big x on a green eyed monster?
there simply is no way one can tell if i committed a crime because i hate the clothes, the skin color, the height or religion of someone...as per the example that I started out with: 3 lesbians beating up a homosexual male because he bumped into them and all of a sudden its a hate crime because they are all 'different."
the crime was the beating, the addition of the sexual orientation is irrelevant but it can't be proven if it was and it can't be proven if it wasn't....it can never be proven (out side of the extreme obvious cases such as the hanging of blacks in the south, but then you still have the actual premeditated murder crime, which in fact all hate crimes would have....)
you say i won't be put in prison for hating, but it can increase my sentence....and that means someone (jury/judge) actually believe they can read my mind...
