What is of value in Federal hate crimes, or federal civil rights crime issues that many do not understand, is that they are useful to ensure that justice is served.
If the locals government screw things up, rather if they cannot or will not, as in the past in civil rights cases, prosecute an individual, either through negligence, incompetence, by design, or a failure to convict as in the case of capitol murder, a hate crime or civil rights indictment usually results in a conviction and jail time.
The truth always comes out and George will learn not everyone will protect and lie for a murderer. Powerful people in Florida will do their best to protect George because his Dad is a former Judge.
