    DonViejo (25,968 posts) Black College Student, Friend Charged With Hate Crime For Burning Trump Sign

    Like most states, Maryland’s hate crime statutes protect against discrimination based on race, color, religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, disability and national origin. A local police officer recently took it upon himself to add another category to that list of protected classes: Trump voters.

    D’Asia Perry and Joy Shuford, 19-year-old friends, were charged Tuesday with a slew of crimes including second-degree arson, trespassing, and committing a hate crime for setting fire to a large Donald Trump billboard displayed near a family sporting goods store run.

    In the charging documents, Princess Anne Police Sgt. Robert Smith laid out his justification for the hate crime charge: “The intentional burning of these political signs, along with the beliefs, religious views and race of this political affiliation, directly coincides with the victim.”

    Smith’s explanation suggests that those who share the sporting goods store owner Robert Wink’s “political affiliation” as a Trump-voting Republican all have the same “beliefs, religious views and race.” Wink is white, and Perry and Shuford are black.

    Knowing the way things go I doubt this will stand - the hate crime part of it. It should considering much of the hate liberals spew about Republicans is that they are the "party of the white man" and their hostility toward Conservative Christians who are mostly Republicans. I don't agree in principle with "hate crime" laws, however if it is going to be a law then it needs to be enforced uniformly. Start arresting Black people and liberals for it and the law will die a quick death when they alone cannot use it for political gain.

    What was the object of setting fire to a Donald Trump billboard that was put up by a local business?

    10. No one may sass the King!

    Bend thy knee and genuflect before King Donald I,
    by divine right of kings, no one may sass him
    harsh words may sting the royal ears and feeweeings
    requiring a foot rub and a defenestration.
    The "hate crime" charges weren't for "sassing" Trump, it was for setting fire to a billboard - out of hatred of Trump - AND - the business owners.

    19. What about bullseye targets with pictures of Obama and Hillary sold at gun shows?
    Apples and oranges. The hate crime wasn't that they didn't like Trump or had a sign that was unflattering to Trump....................THEY BURNED A BILLBOARD.............BECAUSE IT HAD TRUMP'S PICTURE ON IT. They burned SOME ONE'S property out of their hatred of Trump and Trump supporters.

    20. What that Sgt. Smith did to those two men is a hate crime.

    Does anyone think the cop would have charged them with a hate crime if they were white?

    Liberal mantra: Accusing someone of racism absolves the perpetrator of their guilt and of having to take responsibility for their behavior. Blame the victim or the police.

    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Maybe when enough Progs get hit by the Hate Crime silliness enough will realize such laws' stupidity and move to have them repealed. Seriously: is a murder victim any more dead if the murderer hated the color of his skin?
    I support UNexit: Get the US out of the UN; Get the UN out of the US!

    BIG CHEETO Is Watching You!

    Note to "Warpy": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    Replace "Donald" with "Barack," and it perfectly sums up how ultra- liberals, and ESPECIALLY the DUmmies, felt about anyone insulting or criticizing him in any way.
