Hate crime? Really?

There are a lot of things I'd call this behaviour but a hate crime? No, not everything you experience or dislike is a hate crime.

I don't think we should overlook her story of being publicly belittled.
I know it might be low on the list of hate crimes but we shouldnt look down on anyone.

It's not a hate crime.


And anyway, the idea of a hate crime is bullsh1t. It's either a crime or it's not a crime.

Can we agree that it's a small hate crime and leave it short of the full hue-and-cry? Having said that, I'd say the poor woman could have done with a stiff small one when she got home.

Who cares if it is a hate crime or not. Only thing i care about is catching the idiots who demeaned her. As another poster said this thread is what you got out of that story. Have a word with yourself.

It seems to be the categorisation of this as a hate crime. Unacceptable, oikish bullying, utterly anti-social and obnoxious sure but legally hate crime would be hard to prove. Even so, as a label it's an easier one to hang the message of her work in schools on. The story is wrong about the location of the buildings. Had it actually been O'Connell St at lunch time it would not have been unseen

Bit of a pointless exercise going to schools to try to talk to the likes of those gurriers. They won't be in them.

Whilst morally and ethically reprehensible it was a commendable athletic feat.

It's more of a case of hearts and minds where you can.
