3. White guy is accused of murdering/injuring several unrelated people in a killing spree---only targeting blacks.

I guess for me to call something a hate crime, race/sexual orientation/status/whatever has to be the ONLY motivation for the crime.

It appears that is the case here.

With the elderly folks, the "facts" dont lend themselves to a hate crime.

Also, hate crimes only become hate crimes if they have been commented on by the great reverand or Sharpton.

Or am I missing something here, because generally you and I see eye to eye on most things. You are just more vocal and more of a dick about things. Which is fine by me---your return to GL4x4 has secured my position outside of the top 10 GL4x4 assholes. XoXo.
No doubt it qualifies as a hate crime. My question if why should killing someone because you hate something about them be treated differently than killing someone because you’re a piece of shit with no regard for human life?
