Although hate crime provisions weren't applied in this case -- and, truth be told, won't be applied in any case tried in Russia any time soon -- the punishment for the gang is severe. The murder charges do carry aggravating circumstances and were appropriately applied in this case.

Brent Budowsky

It is insulting to Hispanic voters to peddle this polluted line to them and claim that the Speaker's retreat is because of the president. They know it is not true. The Speaker's retreat is because of the Speaker, demanded by the right, and Hispanics know this. And everyone else knows this.

Bettina Elias Siegel

Let me say up front that if my own kids' home-packed lunches were inspected by a school or government official, I'd be quite ticked off. But at the same time, these sorts of incidents just don't fill me with the horror or outrage that so many have expressed in the blogosphere.
