Jonathan Michael Schmidt, Hater Hobo on Bike, Gets Off Lightly for H.B. Hate Crimes

Hobo Jonathan Michael Schmidt got a little jail and a little probation today for shouting from his bicycle "Fucking Mexican, go back to Mexico!" at a Latina motorist and spitting in her face as she waited at a stop sign near Main Street in Huntington Beach before trying to run her over with his bike once she exited the vehicle. Over the objections of the prosecution, the 31-year-old was allowed by the judge to plead guilty to three misdemeanor counts of hate crime battery in exchange for 180 days in jail and three years probation.

Senior Deputy District Attorney John Christl argued that the counts should remain felony hate crime battery and hate crime assault and that Schmidt should face the maximum sentence of five years and four months in state prison due to the severity of the crimes and his past record, which includes a 2003 conviction for false imprisonment.

Around 1:40 p.m. Oct. 4, the 36-year-old woman stopped at a stop sign while driving her sister to a chocolate shop. That's when Schmidt, a complete stranger, rode up on a bicycle, approached the open driver's side window and, without provocation, yelled the profanities and racial slurs and spit on the woman's face.

She drove away and reached her destination. But as she and her sister were getting out of the car, Schmidt rode up, unleashed more venom and spit on the woman's back before darting off. Moments later, as if out of nowhere, the hater on wheels appeared riding his bike directly at the woman, who had to jump out of the way to avoid getting hit. Police were called and Schmidt was quickly arrested.

Clearly assault and attempted battery (if the description of the events is accurate, the court seemed to think it was), which by most people is not considered to be constitutionally protected.

I'm not saying the assault was constitutionally protected. I am saying it is idiotic and in my opinion unconstitutional to treat crimes differently based on the speech engaged in while committing that crime.

It's funny that an activity that is perfectly legal -- indeed constitutionally protected -- like shouting "fucking Mexican, go back to Mexico', somehow makes what otherwise would probably be a misdemeanor fine get the 'perpetrator' 180 days in jail. The Supreme Court really blew it when they endorsed 'hate crime' laws.

How convenient that you forget to mention that besides the hateful verbal assault. That this cocksucker also has a past record and spat in her face and attempted to run her over with his bike. Very bone tickling funny that the constitution doesn't protect scum like him.

Spitting on someone -- running over  with a bike. Give me a break. That's two weekends of picking up cig butts on the 405 without the 'hate speech'.

Nope your wrong fanboy. Your making it sound like assault was completely benign.
