Of course it should be a Federal Hate Crime and only the Trump brand of white rednecks think otherwise. It's a simple concept. If you engage in this terrorist threat tp American communities and commit heinous acts of bigotry then IT IS FAR MORE egregious than the "it's just fine to leave it as murder"excuse these geniuses below are using. AND it is false to say there isnt a documented case of lynching in decades when four redneck assholes in Oklahoma just got arrested for lynching a black man then sinking his body in a lake and they got CAUGHT after the fact. So use FACTS countable and stop this pathetic counter argument if you DON'T.
