Hate Crimes up in LA County

So, crime is up in LA. Oh, that's definitely headline-worthy. What, exactly, is a "hate crime" anyway? Is a hate crime something worse than a love crime? If anything, if there's really a difference, I think it would be the other way around. Having never been assaulted myself, I can't say for sure, but I'm thinking that being attacked by someone who loved me would be a whole lot more devastating that being attacked by someone who hated me. If I'm right about that, then it's really a good thing that *hate crimes* are up. Who thinks up these inanities, anyway?!

Hate crime is such a contradiction of terms. If you do something to someone that's criminal, it's not like you're trying to be loving. I wonder sometimes about all the inane, ridiculous, unnecessary verbage that we use in society today. Crime is crime!
