The only reason I haven't made a thread about this is the age of the crime, it cover race and LWD. It's vile.

I remember that. The sentences were fairly lenient, 8 years, 7 years, 3 years and probation. Having said that, they're higher than they'd get in the UK, if prosecution even went ahead that is.

Because all skinheads are racist?
I'm trying to figure out if this is you being ironic?

All skinheads are racist, all republicans are racist, all whites are racist.

But you are just showing ironically how prejudice works? right?
