house Bill H.R. 90

Do Hate Crimes Need to Have Harsher Punishments Attached?

Argument in favor

The current federal criminal code offers punishments that are too weak for perpetrators of hate crimes. The law must be amended to ensure there is no tolerance of offenders.

That is a simple way to send stronger message who plan to commit such crime. We stand for diversity and equal rights.

Argument opposed

The federal criminal code already in place enforces consequences against people who commit hate crimes, this bill is redundant and unnecessary.

The only hate crimes being committed here are by the people that are pushing hate crimes. Trying to jail, intimidate, harass, sue, threaten to murder those that preach against homosexuality (since it is what the Bible tells Christians to do) is a hate crime. So lets start with the ones who made hate crimes up, if they want to do that, let them get whatever punishment they wished to inflict on the innocent. Get real.

    American Justice is supposed to blind to color, religion, sexual orientation. Classifying any crime as a hate crime with a harsher penalty because the crime was committed to a protected person by a non-protected person is discriminatory and violates due process of law. Overly protecting groups of people is simply designed to secure their votes.
