Hate Crime Allegations In Alabama

The recent hate crime allegations in Opelika, AL is stirring the debate over Alabama's hate crime laws. Alabama has laws prohibiting hate crimes, but hate crimes involving sexual orientation is not included in Alabama's hate crime laws. Regardless of President's Obama's Amendment to include sexual orientation, Alabama has not amended their laws.

  3. This is clearly why I moved away from Alabama. That sheriff is NOT doing his job.

    I lived there for 21 years. They are as ignorant and prejudiced as they were my whole life. . . when it comes to this.

    Disgusting and sickening!

  4. It's terrible to see stuff like this going on. They are sending a message loud and clear that it is ok to discriminate based on sexual orientation.
