…should be made nu-Constitutional for the mere fact that they discriminate against everyone else that isn’t a member of the protected class.
If you’re white, American, or a woman not of color, or heterosexual, there is no hate crime that will be added to the perpetrator of the crime, even if it is as obvious as the nose on your face that it was hate based.

In my opinion it’s all about politics and political correctness.

Here’s a good article that talks about this from The American Thinker.

What Happens When a Ponytailed Defense Attorney Gets Mugged?
By Tina Trent

What happens when ponytailed defense attorney Ron Kuby gets mugged?  He screams bloody murder, demands a police crackdown on the alleged assailant, and collaborates with reporters at the New York Daily News to raise the specter of hate crime charges.  Here’s the outline of the story, from the New York Post:

Michael Cook is charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly clocking Kuby on West 23rd Street in mid-September. Kuby told cops he’d been walking near Cook and Cook’s girlfriend, and the punch in the nose was his reward for objecting to the girlfriend’s overheard anti-gay diatribe.

“I spend my life preventing most people from going to jail, but he’s working very hard to go there,” Kuby said of his accused assailant. “Sooner or later the warrant squad will wake him up very early in the morning and without a cup of coffee.”

The lawyer famous for using every trick in the book to denigrate police and spring violent offenders back onto the street expects a different response from the system when he’s the alleged victim of a minor crime — in this case, a fistfight Kuby acknowledges instigating.

…with Mom’s Glock.
You can listen to the 911 call and the dispatcher instruct her to hold on to the gun until the police arrive. Good advice.
Kudos to the mom for teaching her kid how to shoot the gun and having it available in case it was needed.
Now if that was California, the mom would be up on charges for having the gun available to the child.

Think I’m BSin on the California law?
I’ll post it after the story.

DURANT — A 12-year-old girl said she never had fired a gun before she took aim at an intruder while home alone this week.

“I had to do what I had to do,” Kendra St. Clair said Friday. “I was scared out of my mind.”

Kendra used her mother’s handgun to shoot the intruder Wednesday while she was home on fall break. Her mother had shown her how to shoot it, she said.

“Normally I do not leave my kids at home alone,” Debra St. Clair said. “But being a single mother of two with a full-time job, I had to that day.”

Her son attends a different school, which was not on fall break.


From the California State Attorney’s Office:

You may be guilty of a misdemeanor or a felony if you keep a loaded firearm within any premises that are under your custody or control and a child under 18 years of age obtains and uses it, resulting in injury or death, or carries it to a public place, unless you stored the firearm in a locked container or locked the firearm with a locking device to temporarily keep it from functioning.

Over half that page talks about guns and child safety, but never mentions they can use one in self defense in the home.

…was sent to me via email, and I thought it was funny,

The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all very excited.

Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on salesmanship.

Little Sally led off. “I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30” she said proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the
customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”

“Very good”, said the teacher.

Little Debbie was next. “I sold magazines” she said, “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”

“Very good, Debbie”, said the teacher.

Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath. Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467”, he said.

“$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”

Toothbrushes”, said Little Johnny. “Toothbrushes”, echoed the teacher, “How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”

“I found the busiest corner in town”, said Little Johnny, “I set up a Chip & Dip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”

They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog shit!” Then I would say, “It is dog shit. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the President Obama method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it’s free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”

Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. Bless his heart.
