It is not enough to learn about hate crimes laws. We must hold back or repeal such legislation.

Below are 3 sample form letters which you may E-mail, intact or modified, to your legislators. To quickly identify your legislators, just call your local library. In about five minutes, your librarian will provide you with their names and E-mail addresses.

Letter to State Legislators:

Dear House Member _____________:

Please oppose or repeal "anti-hate" laws.

While such laws give the impression of protecting the civil rights of minorities from bias-motivated violence or intimidation, they actually lead to loss of free speech. Under Canada's anti-hate law, it is now virtually illegal to criticize homosexual behavior over the airwaves, in print, or in public. The consequences: large fines and imprisonment.

Don't let that happen in America!

Letter to Federal Legislators:

(Short Version)

Dear House Member ________________:

Please oppose "Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act," H.R. 1592.

Letter to Federal Legislators:

(Long Version)

Dear House Member________________:

Please vote against "anti-hate" bill, "Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act," H.R. 1592.

Existing laws adequately criminalize all forms of violence and intimidation against persons because of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, handicaps, etc.

The government's business is to enforce laws, not determine the motivation of those who commit crimes. In Canada, such a dual responsibility has created an end to free speech. Here's how: the government first defines "hate" as public criticism of such groups as homosexuals and Jews, then prosecutes as "haters" those who hurt the feelings of such protected groups. Result: there now exists a chill on free speech as sincere Canadians have become intimidated by "anti-intimidation" laws.

The FBI's annual "Uniform Crime Report" consistently shows that so-called "hate crimes" constitute only about 1/10th of 1% of all crime in America. Of this 1/10th of 1%, most have not been adjudicated but are called "crime" because of the conclusion of investigating police. Actually, most are "suspected hate crimes incidents" not proven crimes.

Further diluting this percentage, roughly 40%of such alleged crime consists of "intimidation" largely verbal and unproven.

Such infinitesimal numbers of proven hate crimes does not justify unprecedented , massive intrusion of the federal government into local law enforcement.

Please vote "NO" on the "Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act."
