Waterloo, Iowa jury seated in trial of alleged killer of Marcellus Andrews

Note: to read all AKSARBENT posts on this story, click on the "Labels" entry at the bottom of this post.

In the below video, you'll once again see Waterloo Safety Services Director Dan Trelka saying, in respect of the Waterloo PD's refusal to bring hate crime charges, "What does it matter? We all bleed red."
     Evidently, since Trelka personally disagrees with the rationale of more severe sentencing for hate crimes, which, unlike other crimes, can terrorize communities, he simply ignores them, thereby single-handedly vetoing their raison d'etre. Isn't that wonderful?
     AKSARBENT could understand prosecutors being hamstrung by the refusal of witnesses to be willing to credibly testify that Paris Anding uttered homophobic hate speech and therefore not bringing hate crime charges, but Trelka is so arrogant that he doesn't even bother to offer a credible excuse for refusing to take advantage of an opportunity to send a message to gay bashers.
