unfortunately we live in a society where if you don't fit into the "norm" you become a target.
no one has the right to treat anyone badly, just because they don't fit in.
the people who perpetrate hate crimes should be treated with the same contempt they have towards their targets.
there should be no tolerance to this type of criminal.
There be more contradictions in there ^^^^than a u.s. president saying we are a peacefull nation
There is no normal anymore and hasn't been for many decades...this delusion that only people who are different are persecuted is normally spread by those who have a victim mentality
humans basically are lazy and horrible, some find their way out of that and try to be as good as they can be and put a little bit extra in but most are horrible.
what is a hate crime anymore to be honest? every week we see a new "group" made "special" or a new way this or a new that....you get the drift...even in being a victim some want to be part of it just so they can either belong to something or use like a crutch to say"hey man that's the way I am, deal with it or I'm accusing you of" homphobia,racism, etc
People seem to have stopped looking for answers and ways to may it better but have instead started to look for a way to play victim and blame everyone else
Shit happens, deal with it and move on
