Guess they did'nt know that "hate" crimes work both ways. Not just Republican or white against black or men against women.

This doesn't look good for UMES. They will issue a statement that says that the actions of these women is not representative of the university's student behavior codes, etc.

If the evidence is clear, the court should be putting these two up as examples, not coddling them because they're "impressionable young adults" or "confused teens."

Hope the judge makes an example of them to send a message.

"Hate" crime? What a nonsensical term. Crime is crime. No need to add frivolous addendum to it.

KUDOS to the State Fire Marshall's office for pursuing this and not sweeping it under the rug.
