PUNISHING ‘HATE CRIMES’ (By Michael Kelly) As one who wholeheartedly supports capital punishment, I have what seems to me a cleareyed vision of what justice demands in the murder of Matthew Shepard, the 21-year-old Wyoming college student who was, one night last week, robbed, pistol-whipped, tied to a fence and left to die. Bring in the monsters who did this, try ’em, verdict ’em and string ’em up, preferably before an applauding crowd of thousands.

Hate Crimes And Individual Rights

[From the Houston Chronicle, Oct. 14, 1998] GAY STUDENT’S MURDER IS NO REASON TO MAKE BAD LAW (By Richard E. Sincere, Jr.) The wicked murder of Matthew Shepard by two thugs, assisted by two equally contemptible accomplices, has resurrected a debate about the need for hate-crime laws.
