Ahh yes, but call it something different (hate vs oops for example) and then proceed as often as you like, civilly and/or criminally. As a stand alone statement and not what the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land is doing; 5 stars.

Really!! One can be tried in state court for a crime and then be charged with the same crime in federal civil rights court.

I don't know how you can cantinue to throw the absolute aborion of justice in our face. That shameful jurisdiction shall be an albratros on the kneks of all US and As for many years. You are so ready to sell you're country? Nay, thy hast sold thy soul.

Sham, shame on thee for betraying what thou hadst once held dear...

Ask Zimmerman about this. He was acquitted but the government is considering a Civil Rights violation against him and a brand new trial.
