I remember when this despicable attack took place just after Donald Trump was elected President.

An eight year sentence seems a little light, considering all the crimes that were committed in this case.

What do you think?

Was Justice served?

I know it’s a trap. That’s obvious. But I can’t see exactly how it works.

Ahhh. I see. The victim was Caucasian.


Gotchya.

There were more than one victim in this crime spree and I'm not sure all were "Caucasian".

But, thanks for responding anyway.

That would be a little extreme, wouldn't you think?
Legally, realistically, I’m aware that that would be extreme. And not possible in a modern judicial system. And I’m aware these guys were youths.

Morally? Ethically? They shouldn’t see daylight again.

But I am glad we can agree on the importance of using “hate speech” as an aggravating factor in criminal law.

It was their speech that made this a hate crime.

Chicago has a horrific crime problem.

I think a good place to start in dealing with that is to lock up ALL the politicians and never allow them to see daylight again.
