The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, H.R. 1592, has passed in the House. You can read my opinion of the legislation.

The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act is necessary because still in the American government there are hicks like Representative Ted Poe of Texas (but of course!) who quotes KKK founder Nathan Bedford Forrest to chastise Democrats about the war in Iraq. Nathan Bedford Forrest was a Confederate general who founded the KKK and who was guilty of war crimes during the Civil War.

This is becoming more stupid by the day. Police arrested a Fresno college student,Jonquel Brooks, a 19-year-old freshman and criminology major at California State University,for killing one man, Brant Daniels, 19 and wounding two others over a Sony Playstation game console. Jonquel Brooks was accused of stealing the Playstation when his roommates confronted him over the theft.

The Playstation is just a damn toy. I don't understand the frenzy that accompanies the latest release of a gaming device. This is the same silliness that used to attach itself to Nike shoes. One might as well go flush the money down the loo, considering the nonesense that proceeds a game machine announcement. A Playstation or Gameboy or whatever is certainly not worth killing or dying.
