I do not believe that there is a need for a federal Hate Crmes bill. State and local laws are already effective in handling these crimes.
We must also consider that certain crimes would be prosecuted more vigorously because of race or sexual orientation, if this bill were to become law.
This is an unfair application of justice.
Finally, it would be extremely difficult to prove that a crime was committed because of someone's race or sexual orientation, so the opportunity for
a miscarriage of justice exists if this bill becomes law.
