Federal hate crime charge in Missouri Islamic center fire

Federal hate crime charge in Missouri Islamic center fire

A man accused of setting a fire that destroyed an Islamic center in Missouri in April has been charged with a federal hate crime. Nicholas Proffitt, 42, was initially charged with state counts that included first-degree burglary, first-degree arson and first-degree property damage motivated by discrimination. Proffitt has spent time in prison for defacing the same center more than a decade ago.

Stories like this one just make me wish there was more public opposition towards 'hate crime' legislation.
