    ... why don't you force law enforcement to investigate / prosecute ALL murders?
    It's not as though hate crimes designation will reduce the chances of law enforcement investigating murders of white straight people.  Those are precisely the murders that will be investigated anyway.  It's the murders of racial minorities and LGBT people that get tossed to the side.  Hence, hate crime designation makes it more likely that all murders will be investigated.

    And who, precisely is talking in circles?
