    Does it matter what mommy was?

    Not a hate crime. That's not what that means.

    Where was mommy while this hate crime was occurring. It has to be hate, since no one kills for anything but hate. Murder should ALWAYS be considered a crime of HATE. We call it a crime of Passion or premeditation. Why not always call it a crime of HATE
