i don't understand why if a straight man kills a gay man it is considered a hate crime. but if a straight man kills another straight man it's just plain old murder. why is a gay man's life valued more than any other persons life? and don't say that it's different because a gay man was killed just because he was gay. murder is murder any way you look at it regardless of what the motive was.

Well every time a man rapes and kills a woman I can promise you it begins terror to other women and it promotes mistrust of other men, but that's not a hate crime. No because apparently the rape and murder of a women isn't as SERIOUS a crime as the murder of a gay man!

I don't believe murder is murder regardless of intent. If a mob boss order a hit on someones family member in order to control that persons actions then the motive is very relavent. It's the same thing if a person is murder to dur hate for thier sexual orientaion/gender idetnificatio/religion/race/color/nationality/et, etc.
A hate crime is intended to send a message to an entire group. A group of people (whichever group) being harmed IS more concerning than just one individual being harmed.

They don't call it a hate crime unless there is proof that the murderer killed because of a prejudice.
