IOW, without the offending verbiage, there was no hate, but merely a cutlery field test.
This kind of crap just boggles my mind, in that it implies that murdering or beating someone is without malice unless and until race or homosexuality enter the motive.

I lost interest in this story long ago, but this development just sucks and I hope a higher court quickly overturns it and educates this judge on what constitutes a crime deserving a penalty.
How is sentencing based on feelings different from judging based on using foreign law?
