I used to have a friend who was very right-wing. BNP supporter, Daily Mail reader, the works. Further to the right than the average Trump supporter.

He was also HFA. He advertised his views quite openly in class (at a school approaching 40% Muslim and/or ethnic minority to boot) and many people who wouldn't otherwise tolerate (what is now known as) alt-right views tolerated what he had to say or only debated it slightly because they knew he was disabled. He was a great guy apart from the politics.

These people on the other hand are ANIMALS. Listen, many of us don't like that Trump got in but we're learning to live with it. Taking it out on a poor autistic kid is nothing short of barbaric.

Crazy CNN Panelist Blames TRUMP For Kidnapped, Tortured White Man — 'That Is Not A Hate Crime' [VIDEO]

'...That is not a hate crime,' [Symone Sanders, former national press secretary for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders] blindly stated. 'Hate crimes are because of a person's racial ethnicity, their religion, their gender, a disability, it isn't your political leanings, because someone doesn't like [your] political leanings and they do something bad to you, that is not a hate crime.'

http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/05/crazy ... ime-video/

Haha! I love how too many politicos know so little about hate-crime laws. It makes me doubt all the other things they say publicly. And, she was a presidential campaign press secretary?!?

As I see it, this is collateral damage from the nasty presidential campaign.

I'm sure Trump meant no harm by stirring things up, but angry people often do stupid things.
Perhaps there was to other way for him to get elected, so maybe it was necessary to stir things up.

One of the realizations I've made is that these days, you can't go by literal words to figure out what
people want when they say something. More likely, they want what people collectively want, but they
don't know how to express it--so you need to figure it out using more holistic methods.

Was this kid actually a Trump supporter? I thought those racist pricks were using him as a surrogate for Trump and whites in general. Not that it matter who he supported for President or not. :(

I keep seeing my friends post things like "no justice for the unjust" and it scares me because this is what that mentality really leads to. It doesn't hurt the actual racists.

Just woke up to this news and it immediately made my blood boil :evil:
There is no excuse for what those racist bigots did and they should be charged to the fullest extent of the law.

FML, what a great start to 2017...

President Obama says we won't be seeing this for much longer because the next generation has "better, smarter, more thoughtful ideas about race."

Oh. Hell. These little thuggies are 18 years old. They are the next generation that's coming in.

If rats_and_cats has an accurate age stamp there, "no justice for the unjust" is the next generation that's coming in.

I hope President Obama is referring to the ideas of the current crop of 6- to- 12-year-olds. Young children generally have pretty good ideas about race.

Those are just four pieces of s**t, and so shouldn't be allowed to define a whole generation or group of people.

What does HFA stand for?

Charge with hate crime. This is intolerable and disgusting and proper action needs to be taken. Of course there is going to be hidden bias in the works but if the right people do the right thing, we will see proper justice and this gut-wrenching act can be handled properly.

Good.


Very appropriate, if this is not a hate crime, the law is meaningless.

Is there in fact any evidence at all that this guy was a Trump supporter? So far, it seems he was picked because he was white and disabled.

I don't know about other states and nations, but the hate-crime laws that I helped write for my state don't have a provision stating that they apply only to one perpetrator or another. Despite several concerns I have with our laws, they are blind to any status of the perpetrator.

Just an example of how good laws apply to all.
