Most white men charged with hate crimes in Cook County do not go to prison

This really needs to change.  There should be special camps or prisons for these people nationwide to re-educate them and to make sure they are not a danger to others.

It was supposed to be a joyous celebration for the 24-year-old. Instead, it became a birthday she will always remember for all the wrong reasons.

Anairis “Mia” Irizarry planned to celebrate herself and her heritage — days later and a few miles south Humboldt Park would be holding its annual Puerto Rican People’s Parade. So she put on her birthday-fit: a Puerto Rican flag jersey and headed to the grove she had reserved at the Caldwell Woods Forest Preserve.

“I wasn’t attending (the parade) but wanted to show my pride,” Irizarry testified last week in the trial against the man accused of two counts of felony hate crime for verbally berating her at the forest preserve that day. “I would never have thought in a million years a flag would be a problem.”

More than 15 months later, Irizarry pointed across Courtroom 207 in Skokie Courthouse at Timothy Trybus identifying him as the man whose racist barrage went viral after she livestreamed what was supposed to be her birthday celebration.

Last week, his bond was revoked, an unusual outcome for a white man charged with a hate crime in Cook County. Out of the 36 white defendants found guilty of a hate crime in Cook County during the last ten years, only 12 have been sentenced to prison, according to a Reporter analysis of publicly available data from the Cook County data portal.

Our analysis shows that in 60% of Cook County hate crime cases with a white defendant, the defendant was sentenced to probation. On the other hand, only 22% of black defendants in hate crime cases were given probation — the rest were sentenced to prison.

Black on White Crime is more common than White on Black crime.

True. But imprisonment percentages should be roughly equal for the same crime. Whites are 3x more likely to get probation than blacks for the same crime according to this article. That’s systemic racism at worst and white privilege at best.

Defining a Hate Crime

A hate crime is a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias. For the purposes of collecting statistics, the FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” Hate itself is not a crime—and the FBI is mindful of protecting freedom of speech and other civil liberties.

So if a black kills a white because they are white, is that a 'hate crime'?  Or if a black mugs a white gay person?

From my understanding:

1. Yes. *
2. No

* = Unless the white victim is a white racist.  Then in a way it is self-defense.

While that is a shytty thing to do I don't think you should be thrown in jail for it, let alone prison.  Hell, if that were the case all my drill sergeants would be in prison to this day.
