While I will agree, this sounds like the woman did this to the man purely because he is muslim, it begs the question, why does black on white crime, muslim on christian crime, gay on straight crime, never count as a hate crime? It certainly seems like there is a double standard in our laws.
This doesn’t even touch on the strain of thought that a hate crime in and of itself is a ridiculous classification — if someone hurts/maims/kills another, they must hate them to do such a deed. In essence, charging someone with a ‘hate crime’ is actually thought-crime. The crime should be what the do, not how they view someone else.
