Philadelphia seems to have a different standard for hate crime depending on who the victims and who are the attackers. Here are the money quotes:

"THREE JUVENILES accused of assaulting a cabdriver and his passenger in Center City Saturday night while shouting racial slurs will not be charged with a hate crime, the District Attorney's Office said yesterday.

The teens, who are black, were not charged with hate crimes because there was no evidence that the assault had been motivated by the race of the victims, who are white, said Tasha Jamerson, D.A. spokeswoman. Just shouting racial epithets during the commission of a crime doesn't rise to the level of ethnic intimidation, she said."- 
Where is Al "no justice, no peace" Sharpton hopefully on an AMTRAK heading to Philadelphia start demonstrating. Perhaps the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice will jump on the case like they did on the Black Panther voter intimidation case. On second thought since it was only a white U.S. citizen who was attacked and not an illegal alien they will probably just sit on their hands.

Yeah, I'm sure he'll get Tom Perez in the civil rights division right on it. After he neuters more local Police Departments that actually might be making efforts to enforce immigration laws that is.
