Anti-Obama Graffiti Not A Hate Crime Because The Victims Of The Damage Were Not Racially Targeted

3 US arrests over racist anti-Obama graffiti

MASTIC, New York: Three men accused of spray-painting racist and lewd graffiti on about 40 vehicles, including messages targeting President-elect Barack Obama, are not being charged with a hate crime because none of the victims were specifically targeted because of their race, a police official said Friday.

The Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate crimes, reports there have been "hundreds" of such incidents since the election, many more than usual, said its director, Mark Potok.

Certainly these "Hate Crime Laws" must be changed.
Racist attacks on our president, including any references to a "monkey" are not permissible....any longer.

Bush Or Chimp?
