Should Hate Crime Law Include Women?

Why YES! Does a rapist assault a woman because he loves her? I don't think so!
The Senate passed the Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act back in Sept. 27, 2007. The Act covers you if you are a victim of violence because of your race, color, religion, or national origin. It allows federal investigators to assist you in case the local authorities will not or can not intervene. President George W. Bush stated that he will veto the legislation. I don't know if he has done so yet or not.

The National Organization for Women wants to expand the Act to cover women and I agree! Women are sexually assaulted constantly by men that HATE them. It probably is the most COMMON HATE CRIME EVER! I commend the NOW organization for pointing this out. Women should get federal assistance if the local authorities do not want to intervene or will not if a woman is sexually assaulted simply because she is a woman. I think "sexual assault" is the key word here because if she is assaulted for her jewelry, that can apply to men also. The focus here is, I think, the violent sexual act that targets mostly women in this world.

What do you think? Should the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act be expanded to include "women"?

WomenOnGuard.com Makes Product Donation To Women’s Crisis Centers Throughout The Nation

When WomenOnGuard.com launched its website in October 2006, they vowed to help in the prevention of violent crimes against women. The time has come. WomenOnGuard.com will donate 25 products each month to a non-profit organization, which helps in the prevention and recovery of crimes committed against women.

Indian Beach, NC October 15, 2007. Every month, beginning in October 2007, the owners of the website http://WomenOnGuard.com will donate 25 non-lethal, self-defense products to an organization whose purpose is prevention and assistance in the war against violent crimes committed against women. Susan Eaton, co-principal of WomenOnGuard.com, states that, “Prevention is key. If we can assist in providing a means of self-protection to women, which will help in preventing such heinous crimes, that is a very small price for us to pay”. The websites October recipient is the East Los Angeles Women’s Center in Los Angeles, CA.

Ms. Eaton goes on to say that, “there are many and various types and styles of non-lethal, self-defense products that women can carry. Carrying one of these products can aid in the prevention of a potential crime and result in one less victim. Just showing a would-be assailant that you are carrying pepper spray or a stun gun, is a deterrent in itself”.

The website http://WomenOnGuard.com sells non-lethal, self-defense products such as pepper sprays, stun guns, tasers, personal alarms and surveillance equipment for home or office. The newest non-lethal, self-defense product on the market is the Taser C2 Series, made especially for women. It has a small non-gun design; it is lightweight and easy to carry. It is a very popular product in high demand.

Defensive sprays and stun devices should only be purchased by those 18 years of age or older. Pepper spray is legal in all 50 states, however some cities and states have restrictions on sizes and strengths. There are some states where stun devices are illegal. If you are not sure of the legality in your area, you should check with your local city or state attorney’s office. WomenOnGuard.com does have a “State Restrictions” category on its website however, accepts no responsibility for its accuracy or completeness.
