House Passes Hate Crime Legislation, Bush Signals Veto
I'm no supporter of federal hate crime legislation. We need to get away from mass federalization of crimes that are better left to the states. I also object to laws that punish thoughts behind the crime in addition to the crime itself.
The penalty for murder is life or death. Sex offense penalties are already sky high. Why make them higher?
