Ridiculousness of "hate crimes"

Post by Will Williams » Thu Jun 05, 2014 10:43 am

Comment about this racially charged spanking of a daughter by her father, and "hate crimes" generally, by Dr. Virginia D. Abernethy: [T]he FBI and most police classify Hispanics as “white” when they commit a crime, but Hispanics [a “minority”] when they are victims. This creates the interesting scenario of one Hispanic assaulting another. The classification would amount to, “white crime and minority victim”...It’s time to end “hate crime” as a legal category that entails the potential for an increased sentence. Hate crime and hate speech legislation was all drafted by the B’nai Brith’s Anti-Defamation League...

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – A man has been arrested after he allegedly beat his daughter with a belt for choosing a black teenager as her dance partner for a quinceanera dance.

Aaron Aranza has been charged with injury to a child connected to the alleged incident that occurred on April 11, the Houston Chronicle reported.

His 14-year-old daughter was having a party at her maternal grandmother’s home to practice quinceanera dancing and she chose a 15-year-old African-American boy to be her dance partner.

Aranza learned about his daughter’s choice and became enraged. He went outside to the front yard where the partygoers were and told them it was canceled.

The man then used a racial epithet to refer to the young teenage dance partner when he inquired with his daughter if she wanted him as her partner.

Aranza allegedly pushed the young man stating, “I don’t care that you are a kid,” the Houston Chronicle reported.

He then angrily took his daughter in the house where he allegedly dragged her and beat her with a belt. The man then reportedly tossed her, which caused her to hit her arm on a coffee table and told her she was going to live with him even though she lives with her mother.

The father then took his daughter outside, they began to struggle and he dragged her across the front yard, the Houston Chronicle reported.

He left shortly after that.

Aranza was arrested and is being held in the Harris County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
