A Friendly Crime?

I read about some some guy that was charged with with second degree murder but not a "hate crime".

Isn't any murder pretty much a hate crime?

Can you even have a murder be anything but a hate crime? I mean murder can't be a "love crime", can it? I guess maybe if you fucked somebody to death. Now that I'd consider murder but not a hate crime.

But then, that doesn't necessarily mean it's a "love crime" either. That might just be a murder and a "lust crime". Or murder and a "one-night-of-too-many-sangrias crime". Or murder and "I'm-too-young-to-be-taking-Viagra crime".

Boy, this justice stuff is really complicated.
