The Orlando murders

The murders at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando are not worse because the majority of the victims were gay. Murder is murder; there is nothing worse than wantonly taking innocent human lives. That's the bottom line. There is nothing further below that. Those who were murdered had the right to life as human beings, not as homosexuals. The matter cannot be made any worse. The situation had already hit its lowest possible point.

Hate no matter how lowbrow is not a crime. Motive can never be criminal; that's simply Orwellian, like it or not.
