hate crime in new zealand

Earlier this month in New Zealand, two self-professed "white supremacists" were jailed for a racially-motivated attack on a group of Asian teenagers: 'White supremacists' jailed for Nelson attack. 28-year-old Harry Shannon Dennis McCormack was sentenced to twelve months in prison, while 20-year-old Daniel Bryan Kitto got eight months. This was a hate crime, straight up. The two men had racially taunted and abused the three Asian high school students, before brutally attacking them outside a store, punching and kicking them in the face. During sentencing, McCormack apparently read a written apology to the three victims. Touching, but I'm not impressed. That's racist!
