Why hate crimes - The news that you aren't safe in West Hollywood (of all places) from a predatory gang that preys on gay men reinforces my view that we need hate crime laws. Trev Broudy, who starred in The Fluffer found himself on the losing end of three thugs with a baseball bat and a heavy metal pipe, and it's still not clear if he's gonna make it. On this anniversary week of September 11th, can someone explain to me how such brutal assault is not a form of terrorism? If we can have special laws for terroristic acts, why don't they cover this?
