LA: Teen beat up a stranger he recognized as a sex offender, now faces hate crime count, NOPD says

A 17-year-old boy who realized he was at the same convenience store as a man whose picture had appeared on a mailed sex-offender notice followed the man away from the shop and beat him up, New Orleans police said this week.

Now, besides facing a count of misdemeanor battery, Tyrin Calloway stands accused of a hate crime, apparently on the theory that he targeted his alleged victim, a stranger, for being a registered sex offender, according to Criminal District Court records. Full Article

You mean I should be looking over my shoulder wherever I go because i am “On The List?”

Local government that’s responsible for putting out these notices should be held accountable for this incident.

Lawsuit. Lawsuit. Lawsuit!

Found this forum in regards to this case.

The comments here range from sensible to downright stupid. But it gives insight to the public perception of Registrants.

Need to register in order to comment.

Don’t be silly. You have a much better chance of getting murdered in your own home, courtesy of the google map hit list that your government provides to every whacko in this country. Oh, and your family too.

The shame here this young man followed his leadership. It was Bill Clinton who signed the first law whereby leadership decided to collateral attack those already convicted. Collateral or not, it is still behaviorally states attacking it’s own citizens ONLINE!

Who advertises the worst of their herd on a world wide scale? The bankrupted!

Exactly.
Megan = Clinton
Walsh = Bush, Jr.
IML = Obama

+ Patriot Act, NAFTA, etc.

Well at least he’s being charged with a hate crime. Not to say that the entire registry itself isn’t a hate crime (it is). At least the authorities seem to be admitting they hate us just for fucking being different than them.

So what was the point of the mail card – or the registry in general – if not to make registrants targets?

Whoever mailed the card out should also be held accountable.

@agamemnon it’s enough to make me start to believe in the death penalty. (For whoever sent out the letter)

Awwwww what a pity. However ALL charges should immediately be dropped. This is just another case of “collateral damage” brought on by the extremely informative and beneficial registry.

@LS = “collateral damage” that was my probation therapist lady’s favorite way to shame us. All us sex offenders had to deal with “collateral damage” a great deal of it brought on by the registry. I think she loved it.

Cops cant hire thugs! So how else can you get people to beat up or kill other people make a list and post it online or send postcards or put it on tv like John Walsh does! I cant stand that piece of crap or his wife. Oh john i looked away for 2 seconds and Adam was gone. It ok honey we will pass a law in his name. We will make society pay for our neglectful care of this child! It all about the money and laws to take your life away.So now you put on a hit… Read more »

@The Vampire. God. Isn’t THAT the effing truth. Every word!

Thank you @ LS And too all the brothers and sisters who are on the naughty/ hit list. You are all good people! Just cause we made a mistake we payed our debt. And We all should be let back in to society to prove that we learned our lessen and we will not repeat the same mistake. But life is about learning and making mistakes. But too be put on a list. Is down right USELESS! And i mean USELESS!!!! Plus it is punishment!!! Anyway you all keep fighting like I do and this list can be shoved up… Read more »

The sad irony out of this whole situation would be that if this registrant were to have sexually assaulted this 17 year old, in any way, this registrant most likely would receive a sentence much longer than 6 months in jail, which is what this article says the teenager may receive if found guilty of a hate crime.

Yep, and I attribute that to America’s problems and obsession with $EX in general. If a guy exposes himself to an adult woman without her consent, then that guy becomes a child molester who is dangerous to everyone, even after decades of no further offenses. Someone who is worthy of a Halloween “$EX offender” sign! But the same guy can beat up people every month and be perfectly safe. Or my favorite is the guy could have shot a child with a gun a year ago. No problem! Not dangerous at all. It stuns the brain of people who have… Read more »

I believe Janice was fighting for a hate crime charge here in LA. Me think this is a HUGE deal this kid is charged with a hate crime. Are we now a “class”then?

Wait a second. Isn’t a hate crime something that can only occur if a crime is based on someone belonging to a defined, protected class? That seems like it could play well for us. ***** A hate crime is a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias. For the purposes of collecting statistics, the FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” (https://www.fbi.gov/investigate/civil-rights/hate-crimes) ***** Hate… Read more »

^ @AJ I ask the same question…

As stated above, the definition of “hate crime” is different in every state and in the federal government. It appears that the State of Louisiana has the broadest definition of which I am aware. Specifically the state’s law states that a hate crime includes when victims are targeted “because of actual or perceived race, age, gender, religion, color, creed, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, or ancestry of that person or the owner or occupant of that property or because of actual or perceived membership or service in, or employment with, an organization.” Given that definition, I wonder if being required… Read more »

@Janice Bellucci:
Maybe it’s considered a disability. It’s certainly socially disabling. Based on the article, we may have to wait to see which category we are.

*****
“Court documents didn’t specify under which of those definitions police booked Calloway on the hate crime count.”
