This may be in the wrong forum, but...I was watching the news this morning and Katie Couric was interviewing the father of PFC Lynch. Evidently, there was a report that she had not sustained any gunshot wounds during her POW ordeal. Couric broke out all her skills and posed the question: Now that the reports say your daughter hasn't sustained any gunshot wounds, are you glad to hear your daughter wasn't shot?
This is my problem with hate crimes legislation. It's a bullshit political solution to make nice suburban liberals feel like we're doing something about racism and homophobia without actually doing shit that affects anyone's lives except dead people.
