An investigation by the Los Angeles Times Magazine reveals that laws against hate crimes are being abused by prosecutors. "Hate crime legislation has been an easy sell to legislatures and public because of a general belief that the laws will punish synagogue bombers and Klan murders, who are almost always dealt with severely anyway. Instead, the offenders commonly nailed by these laws are poor and uneducated whites and minorities who offenses often are closer to throwing punches than bombs."
