Yes it was..... just as the incident that caused those reactions a hate crime..... ie: all those police officers ganging up on one black guy and just unloading the beating on the guy.
Or the sodomizing and killing of a boy by homosexuals (can't recall exactly where or when) a hate crime?
Can't say I remember that and almost sounds like you made it up just for the sake of argument..... but either way, that would have been tied to Pedophilia due to being a minor..... unless you can prove the minor was assaulted due to their race, religious beliefs, etc.
Bottom line is that "hate crime" is idiotic.
No, some people just don't understand how the legal process works and how it differentiates from one situation to the next based on what occurred.
No one situation is exactly the same, which is why we don't have just one law against multiple types of crime..... otherwise people who accidentally killed someone in a motor vehicle collision would be spending the same amount of time behind bars as the serial killer who ate babies.
There's more to a crime then just The Action..... you need to include intent and motive to better understand the crime in question so that proper justice can be met based on the specific crime in question.
^ Of course this obviously didn't happen in the above report.
A dead or a beat up, person is a dead or a beat up person, regardless who that person is and/or who committed the crime.
Well with that mentality, I guess there's no point in investigating a crime, finding out who did it, why they did it, or punish them, nor should we find out who the victim is, investigate why or how they got where they are now, or if they have any loved ones looking for them.
It's just a dead/beat up guy...... case closed.
Cripes.... way to take a lesson in justice from the Mexican police there buddy.

I told it as I saw it, I didn't abuse or attack you in anyway. My response would have been the same towards anybody else saying what you said, and I would expect to get the same attitude back at me if I made such ignorant claims..... and if you agree with what I said, then why the hell did you say the opposite which created my response in the first place?
I suppose me being "Abusive" and "Attacking" was a hate crime?
I'd have a lot more respect for you if you had simply said "I don't agree.
Good thing I'm not in here seeking respect then...... and if all you want others to do in a debate is say "I don't agree" whenever it comes to something you say, then it's not really a debate is it?
Nor does anybody get a chance to understand why they don't agree.
You get to voice your opinion, have everybody read it...... but everybody else should only say "I agree" or "I don't agree?"
Give me a break...... you've been in these forums long enough to know better then this.
