New hate crime in TN

Defaced Koran angers Nashville Muslims

Police investigating possible hate crime

By LEE ANN O'NEAL
Staff Writer


A Muslim holy book was found yesterday covered with flies, with a torn-out page mashed into what appeared to be feces and burned around the edges.

The Koran was discovered on a doorstep about noon by an Islamic man who lives nearby in the LeNore Garden Apartments complex. He was walking to his home in the community, largely populated by Islamic immigrants from Somalia. A neighbor told police the book had been on the steps since at least 5 p.m. Tuesday.

...
Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime and are consulting the FBI. A suspect could be charged with misdemeanor desecration of a venerated object or civil rights intimidation, which can be a felony or misdemeanor charge, said Metro police Capt. Mike Hagar. The district attorney would make a decision whether to pursue criminal charges.
WAAAAAAA!

Theres no such thing as a hate crime, I dont see the police jump allover people that tear up the bible or torah(sp?) as a hate crime.

Hate crime is a bunch of bullshit. If you are a minority and something wrong happens, it's always called a hate crime.

I'm not going to make too much of this because more than likely this is the result of come hoodlem just being a dumbass.

However it does strke me as similar to the Klu Klux Klan burning crosses in the front yards of black families. It is an overt act of imtimidation and inheirently wrong.

But, you guys are right, "Hate Crime" laws are bullshit. It's just feel good legislation that really doesn't accomplish anything. There are plenty of civil rights laws on the books that someone could be charged with for this action.

Aren't all Intentional malicious crimes "Hate Crimes?" You know, If I shoot someone on purpose, obviously I hate them regardless of race/creed/etc... I agree, this hate crime crap is bullshit.

CANADIANS = DOUCHERS

Burning a cross was an act to tell black people that they Klan was in the area and we are watching you. That is intimidation. Burning a Koran has no such connotation and means as much as burning a dictionary.
