There would not even be a debate if it were a hate crime if a Muslim executed three white people.
I know hate crimes are very hard to prove .
Thank you Carrie

I really don't give a flying fig whether they can prove a hate crime, and I don't believe in capital punishment, but life without possibility of parole would be about right, regardless how they get there.

This story wouldn't even be a headline if the victims didn't happen to be Muslim. Hate crime? Get real!

Although the death penalty is still on the books in N.C., no one's been executed since 2006.

Joanne said it all. Craig Hicks should get life without the possibility of parole for murdering three people. No capital punishment, not in this case or any other, never.

Whatever the reasons for killing these innocent people, Craig Hicks deserves the death penalty for killing 3 people.

Notice how his motivation as an anti-theist is omitted .. If it was a Muslim, Jew or Christian committing a Similar crime then a big fuss would have been made of their 'ideology' .. But the ideology of hatred towards all religion is not just accepted, but completely swept under the carpet .. Shame on you all for your hatred of all religion and for sweeping the motivation of this man's crime under the carpet ..

I quote:

Chapel Hill shooting: Craig Stephen Hicks condemned all religions on Facebook prior to arrest for murder of three young Muslims Chapel Hill shooting: The man arrested on suspicion of killing three young Muslims in North Carolina described himself as an “anti-theist” and criticised all religions online.

Reading history, it'is very clear that this man was motivated by a neo-marxist, communist, maoist, socialist ideology that wants to rid the world once again of all religion .. Nothing new .. Same old hatred as in the communist revolution and even throughout history before that, blaming religion for society's problems to the degree of killing off all religious folks. Look at the 'killing fields' ..

This is just the beginning, the start of the new wave of neo-anti-theism .. The online hatred towards all religion is slowly building up pace, as the masses need to be hyped up enough in their hatred of all religion before they would lash out and actually kill like this man did ..
