In your opinion should gang violence be considered as a hate crime? Why or why not?

Yes I do, I think a lot of gang attacks are premeditated and they come from a hateful place. If you attack someone for the colors they are wearing then you have too much anger and you should be locked away where you can only hurt other inmates.

They claim that they form gangs to protect each other but they funny things about gangs is that all they do is hurt others.

I think that anytime there are more than one person attacking someone else it should be considered a hate crime. The danger involved with a gang fight should be enough to give a harsher punishment.

Seriously when you are willing to kill someone just for the color shirt that they are wearing you shouldnt be allowed inside school walls.

Without a doubt in my mind all gangs are filled with is hate and if you are proven to be a member you should be taken out of class and treated like a prisoner and not a student because thats what your future will be so you better get used to it.

Gangs are bad enough but gangs inside of schools should be so against the rules that even having a rumor about you should be investigated.You are only full of hate for anyone that is not in your gang and I will not have my child in the same school as a gang member.

I think if you are found guilty of gang affiliation your sentence will be longer. Gangs are a product of hate so the courts view them as such.
