A Hate Crime Prevention Forum scheduled for 6 p.m. Thursday at Paine College has been canceled because of the U.S. government shutdown, the college reported Wednesday.

The forum was an effort by the U.S. Department of Justice Community Relations Service, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of Georgia, the FBI, the district attorney’s office of the Augusta Judicial Circuit, the Richmond County’s Sheriff’s Office, and the city of Augusta to educate the public about the Hate Crime Prevention Act.

Hate crimes

With Obama being the number one school house bully to the nation with his uncalled for lock down of open air monuments. How do you expect our kids to not bully each other? there actions are set by example!!!

I am sure They Hated To Do That ;-)

Tell you what, why don't we get the AC to setup a submission page. a page where every Event, Activity, park, memorial, etc.. that will be effected by the shutdown can be listed NOW instead at the last minute? This way we can get them ALL at once instead piece meal day after day.

Or would that defeat the purpose spoon feeding the public for MAXIMUM Effects?

It would also be nice to know how many non-essential personnel caused each of the problems for each dept. Like in this case.

Maybe when this is all over we can start trimming some fat lighter.

Obama doesn't hate any one.

Obama doesn't hate any one. He is just trying to look out for us all. He is going to make sure everyone has health insurance by requiring them to purchase it. Hello... if everyone could afford it wouldn't they have already purchased it? And if you do not purchase health insurance you will pay a fine at first, which will be administered by the IRS, The fine will increase every year until purchasing health insurance will become the affordable option. I guess the next thing that will happen, is that if you show up at the emergency room and do not have health insurance you will be arrested on the spot and jailed and fined. Isn't that the way automobile insurance works? Next Obama will institute prison labor camps for those who do not purchase health insurance. Now don't you just love Obama?

I hate hate crimes

A crime is a crime, no matter what the motive. Should be judged and sentenced only by the severity of the crime, number of offenses, harm to victim, etc. -- NOT trying to read the minds of defendants (do judges or juries have psychic powers?) about their motives. Motives don't matter; actions do.
Hate crime laws are hateful. This is one government activity I don't mind seeing cancelled!!

A hate crime has already been

A hate crime has already been defined as any white on black infraction. Why do we need a forum for further explanation?

ragingbull, Obama hates everything this country was based on. He hates all white men that does not kiss his butt and holds contempt for them. The lying racist believes the USA stole its wealth from poor countries of color and he believes it is his job to achieve Social Justice.

Lack of Interest

The real reason the forum was shut down was lack of interest. Whoever thought you could get a bunch of criminals to come to a hate crimes forum is looney.

More Stupidity
Unpublished

Riverman's 4:11 comment is right on target. It's ridiculous to make crimes different depending on the reason. If you kill someone or beat the heck out of them, what difference does it make if you did it for fun or did it because you hate them. Incredibly stupid.

Since the symposium is at

Since the symposium is at Paine it must be related to a hate crime like rape, or having gun's on campus can lead to a hate crime of death, or a hate crime like taking student's financial aid and using it illegally for other debt like the administration committed, and the hate crime of possibly closing the school because they are still on "warning" by SACS because of mismanagement by the current administration. They've replaced every position related to their issues and problems still persists-Occam's razor would dictate the problem wasn't with those they fired. These hate crimes need to be addressed.
