    The commenter asserts that if we raise the possibility of this being a hate crime then it is less likely to be prosecuted as such.

    IOW, the defenders of victims are now guilty of causing injustice?

    Absolute, rhetorical bullshit.

    There is nothing far-fetched about this being a potential hate crime (more likely than not unless you consider a severe beating and expression of love) but if you want to get on that train and ride you go right ahead and do it but don't smear people who live in the real world where this shit happens as being reckless speculators.

    You do the cause of pursuing justice by raising legitimate questions no favors yourself.

    Have you got a real problem with me strongly suspecting it might be a hate crime and saying so?

    Can you explain exactly how I'm subverting the course of justice here?

    Please, I'd be interested in your reasoning.

    What about my Daughter's future?
