Why is this not being reported as a hate crime? If this was a predominantly "black" church we would have the usual stories about "racism in Utah" and Jessie Jackson would be preparing another self-aggrandizing photo-op. But since it is a Mormon church, no big deal. "Move along people, nothing to see here".

Well is there anything left behind that suggest it was a hate crime? I think the possibility that it is a hate crime should certainly be investigated but why run out in front of the known facts? maybe for reasons of politics not actual concern?

@George, thank you for making my point. Every time any other church is vandalized, it is looked at as a hate crime, except when it is a Mormon church in Utah.

Again it iis looked at as a hate crime when there is evidance to support it not simply because the particular religion or race of the person and again the investigation should be looking be looking for evidance into if it maybe a hate crime. What they should not do is run out ahead of the facts which is what you want.
