West Allis, WI police have released a statement saying that incidents at the Wisconsin State Fair, where many witnesses say large groups of black men attacked white fair patrons, will not be prosecuted as “hate crimes.” TMJ 4 reports on the new information released by police:

   “The police department issued a statement with details of arrests, saying ‘None of these incidents possessed elements that would compel the pursuance of a ‘hate crime’ prosecution.”

   Witnesses reported attacks on the opening night of the fair that seemed to be racially motivated with young African Americans beating up white fair goers, but police say at this point there is not enough evidence to support such claims.”

The Blaze reported Friday on the mayhem that ensued at Wisconsin State Fair on Thursday night. Here are some accounts of what witnesses claim to have experienced:

   “I had a black couple on my right side, and these black kids were running in between all the cars, and they were pounding on my doors and trying to open up doors on my car, and they didn’t do one thing to this black couple that was in this car next to us. They just kept walking right past their car. They were looking in everybody’s windshield as they were running by, seeing who was white and who was black. Guarantee it.”

   “I saw them grab this wide kid who was probably 14 or 15 years old.  They just flung him into the road.  They just jumped on him and started beating him.  They were kicking him.  He was on the ground.  A girl picked up a construction sign and pushed it over on top of him.  They were just running by and kicking him in the face.”

Nothing compels the "pursuance" of any prosecution. The statement was a roundabout but truthful way of saying that the cops and the prosecutor don't want to charge hate crimes.

Sooner or later, the people getting beaten are going to get fed up with the broken legal system and do some prosecuting of their own.

Somebody needs to wring the necks of the cops and district attorney there before they become so delinquent and derelict in their duty that they allow something to start that they can't stop.

The failure to prosecute is exactly why I hate the notion of "hate" crimes.  It creates a special class of people who receive greater protection of the law.  In my opinion, that is so fundamentally Unconstitutional that it should be struck down.

While you're 100% right, it doesn't change the fact that it is a law and it's not enforced equitably.
