Impunity in the case of Gays brutally and cowardly murdered.
150 days or 5 months that is the value of a human life, taken brutally.
It does not matter if the victim is Gay or not. This is a License to Kill.
In the murder of Satendar Singh there were racial and gay slurs. This crime was committed by a group of Russian Evangelicals in Sacramento California.
Remembering LGBT Hate Crime Victims
Some excerpts :
Or consider the case of Aleksandr Shevchenko, the man charged with a hate crime after fatally beating Satendar Singh at Lake Natoma, California, in 2007. When a jury deadlocked in Shevchenko’s trial, the court instead convicted Singh’s killer for disturbing the peace and simple assault. The court sentenced Shevchenko to 150 days in jail. An August 2, 2008, article published by the Sacramento Bee reported the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office will not retry Shevchenko on the hate crime charge. Because of the verdict, the value of Satendar Singh’s life has been reduced to approximately five months in jail.
Take for example the May 2007 murder of Sean Kennedy, age 20, in Greenville County, South Carolina. Despite the brutal nature of Kennedy’s murder, the man who shouted anti-gay epithets and used his fists to beat his victim to the ground was able to avoid a lengthy jail sentence. Stephen Moller, the man arrested and brought to trial in the Kennedy murder case, had the charges reduced from murder to involuntary manslaughter.
In addition to having the charge downgraded to manslaughter, Moller’s original sentence of five years in prison was first reduced to three years, and then shortened by seven months for time already served. In the end, Moller’s entire prison sentence will most likely come to about a year and a half.
