Mary Cayze was recently charged with stealing $9.35 from the blind owner of a convenience store inside the Hamilton County Courthouse (of all places).
She's looking at one year in jail.
Question. If you are a proponent of a hate crime should Ms. Sayze be charged with some kind of hate crime? Maybe add a couple of years to the sentence.
After all, she did target and steal money from a person who really couldn't defend themselves.
If you are an opponent of hate crimes legislation, how is this crime anymore deplorable or heinous than stealing ten dollars out of a non-blind person's wallet?
