    They loudly declared it "wasn't a hate crime" because reasons.  That's not caution. That's sweeping things under the rug.

      without quite so much emotion.

      There is NO statement saying it wasn't a hate crime.  Not one.  In fact, I think it's likely it was.  However, the facts provided are not sufficient to reach that conclusion, much less to be attacking others for not reaching that conclusion.

      This is supposed to be a reality based community.  I know emotions can run high on an issue such as this, and I fully understand why.  However, emotions can often make us ineffective and we have to set them aside and look at facts - not assumptions.  That's all I suggested and I think if you reread the comment, you'll realize that.
