    Home grown terrorism. I bet the murderer thinks of himself as a Christian.

    They will be out on parole in just 6 years, way too soon.

    Everyone should be outraged. Are you?

    I think the sentences in the second case were appropriate; six and 13 years in prison for crimes that while reprehensible caused no physical harm to anyone seems fair, perhaps even a little harsh.

    The Maryland crime is a murder. Everyone is against murder. I'm not sure why it makes a difference to you the reason for the murder but you seem to imply that it is worse because they killed someone because of their race. I think you should drop the race card as it is irrelevant. We should merely punish the murder. I'd execute all convicted murders.
    Everyone would also agree that storming a child's birthday party and yelling the N-word is bad behavior. The threats that were made makes this case indisputably criminal. But unless we are going to start giving out 400,000 year sentences for violent crime I'd argue 35 years for a racist rant is disproportionate.

    The person who got the most severe sentence did also point a shotgun at people in the party; that would perhaps justify the minimum 13 year sentence.

    EDIT: I don't know where the headline writer got his "35 years" from; the two defendants were sentenced to 6 and 13 years respectively as the body of the story makes clear. This is another story covering the same case: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/pair-who-led-racist-attack-boy-s-party-sentenced-years-n726421

    I had just read the summary and did not realize that the accused pointed a shot gun at someones head. After your explanation of the facts, I have no problem with a thirteen year sentence.

    So when someone kills a group of people based on their religious beliefs, we should ignore that fact and consider it irrelevant if they do so in the name of white supremacy or Islam or Christianity, etc...?
