Default Hate Crimes

Should people be punished more severely for assaulting or otherwise causing harm to someone if they did it for a reason like their sexuality or race?

I was 'bout to say Rezz...Really, it's ridiculous to punish someone for thinking something while committing a crime.

That would be the most hazy and indeterminable crime, because you would never know there true intentions and thoughts.

well what if a Klan member killed a black guy & said it wasn't cause of the color of his skin?

Like the movie with Matt Damon i believe. I forget the name.

They catch people doing crimes before they commit them.

@sweet: Thats an extreme though.

Who's to say he didn't? And if he did, what of it? He goes to jail for murder, or gets executed (For another debate) , end of discussion. What are you going to roast his dead body or give him a two lifetime sentence. Once again, you're punishing people for their thoughts. Think about that.
