ELKHART — Advocates for minorities are urging state lawmakers to overhaul a hate-crime bill passed this year by the Indiana General Assembly to make it stronger.  

“The law as passed has caused a constitutional challenge coming from several groups here in Indiana,” said NAACP President Emeritus Franklin Breckenridge, committee chairman and forum moderator.

Not one of the representatives bothered to call, email, or show up. This is your elected officials...too busy to do their job and hear what their voter's concerns are.....VOTE THEM OUT!


They know what their voters concerns are. These are not their voters, never will be. These are far left cry babies who see everything through a lens of hate and bigotry.


These are not their voters concerns Joe. Their voters believe correctly that all crime is bad and all violence is a " hate crime".
