Hate crime laws are stupid

Hate speech laws are even dumber.
No they're not. Hate crimes are similar to terrorism- they don't just affect the victims but are also meant to terrorize a particular group of people. A hate crime sends a message to people of any particular group that they are targeted. We have additional penalties for acts of terrorism, just like we do for hate crimes.

Premeditation is when you plan something ahead of time. A car thief's premeditation might include following a driver and noting where he typically parks his Mercedes.
You're most likely to see the noun premeditation when someone's talking about crime. Almost any kind of crime or wrongdoing is considered worse, especially in a courtroom, if there's premeditation involved. An assault that's spontaneous isn't punished as harshly as one that involves premeditation, in which the attacker plans the assault before carrying it out. The Latin root, praemeditationem, combines prae, "before," and meditari, "to consider."
(law) thought and intention to commit a crime well in advance of the crime; goes to show criminal intent
Type of:malice aforethought, mens rea
(law) criminal intent; the thoughts and intentions behind a wrongful act (including knowledge that the act is illegal); often at issue in murder trials
