The tragic massacre of members of an African American prayer group at the Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina has stunned the nation. While the shooting may be a hate crime South Carolina does not have laws to this effect. We’ll address what constitutes a hate crime with Wilson Huhn, distinguished professor emeritus at the University of Akron, School of Law.
Huhn covers the severity of hate crimes and the grave repercussions compared to that of a non-hate crime:
"In all cases, in answer to punishment, it moves it from a less serious felony to a more serious felony, which means additional prison time. …With this particular crime, the motivation is one of the elements of the offense." -Wilson Huhn
