Jazzy explains hate crimes to Cuffy

Cuffy asked Jazzy, “Jazzy, what is a hate crime?” I, your humble and astute Jazzy Cat, replied, “Cuffy, there are many motives for crimes such as greed, jealousy, vandalism, fear, hate, etc. A hate crime is one in which the motive for a crime (hate) is also a crime. This means that thought is a crime in a hate crime. For example, when DH first brought Duffy to live with us, I slapped her upside the head with my paw. It was done out of hate for what I considered to be an intruder. However, when DH brought the catnip home and you got to it first, I came up and slapped you upside the head out of selfish greed. In both cases the crime was assault; however, the motive was different. I am speaking from a human standpoint, as fortunately we felines are not burdened with a bunch of laws to obey.”

Hey, Jazzy Cat. I wrote a lengthy response to this post, but somehow managed to erase it before I published it. I will try to piece my response back together on my site later. Hope you are doing well.
