In 2013 I find it deplorable that the state of Alabama Hate Crime Statute doesn't cover violence against the LGBT communities .. It is time to amend this legislation to better reflect equal protection to all under the law. By not including these individuals protection in the State Hate Crimes Law the State of Alabama is engaging in Discrimination based on Sexual orientation which is itself a violation of the Federal Hate Crimes Statute! Time to move forward ! We can no longer stand silent while our brothers and sisters are attacked and discriminated against !
