A hate crime is an offense which is committed against a person due to their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or nationality. Crimes of this nature are harshly prosecuted. A defendant convicted of a hate crime may face years or even a lifetime of imprisonment, as well as fines, probation, loss of employment and much more.

In the heat of everything they can become overzealous; charging innocent individuals or imposing unfair consequences.
