A hate crime takes precedent over all of that. Who cares if murder is in the heat of the moment so long as you found that picture of the killer wearing that rebel flag like a cape at a biker rally. Plan it, or catch your wife in bed with some dude who happens to be black, if you’re a deplorable it doesn’t matter anymore.
Haha. In 2019 there were about 1.7 million reported violent crimes in the US. There were less than 7300 reported Hate crimes and many of those involve property. Lol.
