Do you have an counter-example where someone well connected committed a similar set of offences and got away with a lesser penalty?
Yes but much worse. O.J.Simpson

Pity I didn't have my daughter read your threads before she moved to Australia last week, she might have reconsidered!

Well the justice in Australia is better. Don't worry! Even though the dickhead Morrison is sitting on the beach in Hawaii while Australia burns!

The gay's are race now?
No, but in the context of hate crimes that apparently have increased in the last 3 years (I wonder why?)......I would say right measure during these times.

For you.....but you're gonna argue Mexican is not a race either

Quote:
A woman has been charged with attempted murder after telling police in Iowa that she deliberately drove into a girl because she appeared "Mexican".
The victim, who is 14, sustained "numerous injuries" in the incident.
Police say she was struck while walking to a local school, near Des Moines, on the evening of 9 December.
They initially appealed for the public's help in identifying the hit-and-run before Nicole Marie Poole Franklin was arrested.
"Investigators determined that this incident was an intentional act, not an accident," Clive police said in a Thursday statement announcing the attempted murder charge.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday, Police Chief Michael Venema said he was "shocked" by the suspect's admission.
"Franklin told investigators that she ran the girl over because she was, in her words, 'a Mexican'," Chief Venema said. "She went on to make a number of derogatory statements about Latinos to our investigators."

A legal loophole means a Utah man who allegedly battered a Latino father and son while shouting "I'm here to kill a Mexican" cannot be charged with a hate crime, say officials.
Alan Dale Covington, 50, is accused of brutally beating Jose Lopez, 51, and his son Luis, 18, with a metal bar.
Federal hate crime laws exist, but in Utah only non-serious assaults can be classified as hate crimes.
Police say Mr Covington's mental health issues complicate the situation.
