I heard about that, if that isn't a hate crime then what the hell is?

I guess he's merely a "troubled teen" and that's why he specifically asked if it was a gay bar

Yes it's a hate crime. But when are we as a civilization going to say screw what color we are, what sexual orientation we are, what religon we practice and get rid of all the different names for each other and say Jacob, julia, francisco, etc.. murdered a young man or woman. It's always White male, black female, hispanic male. Who gives a shit. We are "One" and that is Human Beings.
Question? If a Hispanic person kill's an african american it's not a hate crime, but if a white person kills a hispanic person it could be considered a "Hate Crime?"

Who says it's not? I never hear anyone say that

And we can say screw all that when all people stop hating others who are "different" in some way. When will that happen? Most likely never. We have to call out bigotry, hatred, and racism whenever it exists, because maybe people will notice and actually learn. Pretending it doesn't exist will only make things worse.

I am not racist. But everytime in the news here.Suspect is a white male, police are looking at it as a hate crime. Do the police know it was racially motivated? What if it's just to people getting in an argument and the white person kills the hispanic person in a struggle? Yet label it as a hate crime.

What does race, or "just getting in an argument," have to do with any of this? This was about homophobia, plain and simple. Clearly this guy had no prior issues with any of the individuals in this bar. It is absolutely relevant that they were self-identified gays and he was not.

Well there you go Irvine. Connecting the dots for you... I guess it's no surprise that a neo-Nazi would be virulently homophobic as well. And a gay bar makes a nice, convenient, readily identifiable target.

I wonder what his parents knew or thought about his interests?

OK, maybe I was jumping to conclusions about his parents.
Quote:
from the New Bedford Standard-Times
Mr. Robida lives at 613 County St. with his mother and siblings. His mother, Stephanie Oliver, has diabetes and is going blind, the neighbor said. The neighbor said the grandmother, Evelyn Oliver, who owns the white three-decker, takes her 13-year-old granddaughter to school everyday because the mother cannot drive. Stephanie Oliver is in her 40s and is frail and disabled, the neighbor said.
And a sad commentary on preceding context:
Quote:
Some patrons said there has been occasional low-level harassment at the bar over the years.

Puzzles has been egged, cars parked outside have had windows smashed and teenagers have thrown rocks and bricks at the building's facade for years, said Dan Sheteron, 51, who lives upstairs. Anti-gay graffiti often defaces the building.

"This doesn't surprise me," Sheteron said of the attack. "It was either going to be this or a firebomb through the front window."

It's just really sad that people that young are going on killing rampages - what could have happened in his life so early to make him do this?
