This is Not a Hate Crime...

So, the ever-vigilant LA County Sheriff's Department has responded to this Halloween 'display' with the following noodle-spined assessment...

"I'm not defending this; I'm not criticizing it. It doesn't rise to the level of hate crime,"

Great, so this is not a hate crime, but would the hanging in effigy of, say, Barack Obama be?
