What's ironic is many of the South County families donating supplies for underprivileged familiesRead More actually have a lower net worth than the underprivileged families. Many of these donors are so far underwater (due to negative real estate equity) that they have a hugely negative net worth while the recipients of the supplies, perhaps renting, or just getting by, have a near zero net worth.

This is why people need to vote no on 34. Keep the death penalty. Use it.

One less bureaucracy in our midst! The problem with such non-profs is that they are selective asRead More what "hate crimes" they pursue. The police are doing a fine job enforcing the law.
Leonard Kinkade July 9, 2012 at 12:15 pm
The proliferation of hate crime laws in the 1980’s and 1990’s was a feel goodRead More politically correct approach by legislatures who added an extra element that had to be proven in a criminal court to obtain a conviction. Their reason for doing so is difficult to determine, probably to show their constituents they were doing something, who knows? All I can say is that they have never been prosecutors. Hates crimes are unique because it asks the police and the D.A. to prove in court “THE MOTIVE FOR THE CRIME” Normally, the motive for a crime has always been irrelevant in proving a criminal violation. It adds an extra element of a crime that must be proven in a court of law to get a criminal conviction. In most of these cases the element of motive must be proven by circumstantial evidence, since the criminal involved seldom confesses as to his motive for committing a crime. Thus, it burdens both the police and the prosecutor to prove the element of motive, when in most cases the person could be convicted of assault, battery etc. without having to prove this element. Accordingly, adding hate crimes to the California statutes was a waste of valuable investigative and prosecutorial time, when it’s really not needed and adds a burden for the prosecution and law enforcement. Given that noted above, tracking such crimes is an absolute waste of tax payer’s money and squanders limited resources to prosecute criminals.
