    For anyone who is interested in attending, there will be a regional prayer service for the Sikh community and those killed..tomorrow night ( August 23) at Trinity Episcopal Church on Clarendon St. in Boston. Anyone is welcome to come and pray in solidarity and learn about Sikh faith and traditions, hear typical music played during services, etc. The prayer service will be followed by a communal meal.

    [QUOTE]Assault with intent to rape or murder is much different.That would be multiple crimes occurring. Versus just one. Much different. Assault with intent to assault you because you're gay or wearing a Yankees hat is not the same as the previous mentioned. Sorry...it's apples and oranges.

    No, he said the rape was intended. It never had a chance to happen so was never a crime. Yet he gets punished more severely than a "standard" assault. So in effect, he is getting punished for the INTENT, as well as the CRIME.

    Maybe and maybe not.  There is still a crime for assault with intent to rape.  That is different in terms of punishment than simple assault.  And yes, the victim makes a difference.  You are punished more severely if you assault a cop, a child, an elderly person...  And those are issues of simple fact as opposed to intent. Hate crimes are all about the intent, an intent that is not confined to the actual subject of the assault, but a whole class of people.  That's why they get zapped harder: the impact on society is greater.
