The police are being cautious but from the driver's reported remarks, it sure sounds hate motivated.

I can see calling it a hate crime but I prefer to see it as motivated by stupidity

So a hate crime shouldn't be called that?

Hmm, a single unprovoked attempt at murder with a firearm after a conversation indicating religious and possibly racial prejudice. If the roles were reversed what would you call it? What would the authorities call it?.

That's really an interesting question. I've often wondered why we need the term. Hate, like greed, can be a motive to kill, but we don't have "Greed" crimes.

John, are you saying greed can't be a motivation to kill?
