You just have to love when the Left’s own twisted pretzel logic comes back and bites them in the butt. It is just too bad the other 99.9% of the time, it is everyday America that has to traverse the politically correct legal landmines that the hive mind plants.
From The Boston Herald:
Three women identified by their lawyers as lesbians were arraigned yesterday on a hate crime charge for allegedly beating a gay man at the Forest Hills T station in an unusual case that experts say exposes the law’s flawed logic.
Prosecutors and the ACLU of Massachusetts said no matter the defendants’ sexual orientation, they can still face the crime of assault and battery with intent to intimidate, which carries up to a 10-year prison sentence, by using hateful language.
When it comes to such things, facts, the law and common sense always go out the window, since everything in cases like these are based on “feelings”, “injustices” and which lawyer can score the quickest buck and TV interview.
Knowing that, let us now use the Liberal Victimology Scorecard and see if we can break down who is truly at “fault”, using standard Liberal Hate Crime Methodology:
– The alleged attackers were all black females who claim to be lesbians.
Victim Scorecard: +3
One point for being female. One point for being black and one point for being a lesbian.
– The alleged victim was a gay man, and while the report does not report on the race of the man, judging by the fact that the three women claimed he used racial slurs, it is a pretty safe bet that he was a white male.
Victim Scorecard: -2
One point for being gay.
However, that point is deducted since he is a male.
Another point is deducted for being white.
Another point is deducted since he is a white male in a confrontation with a black female. (call it the Duke Lacrosse Handicap)
Verdict: This was a mismatch from the start, as black females win all Liberal Victimology contests, regardless of opponent. Being lesbian only adds icing to the cake and ensures a win over another straight, black female.
However, in spite of what the ACLU rep says, the judge gave the women bails of only $100-$500, so it looks like this case will probably melt away like snow in April.
