It as hard from me to tell from the link what actually happened. The site is clearly presented from the protester (I would say christian but might have been a bunch on the other side too) standpoint. I couldn't say from reading it whether they were treated unfairly or not, certainly they may have been. Sounds like there was more than talk; I've been a noisy complainer for 29 years but have never faced these charges:
2) “criminal conspiracy” (1st-degree felony).
3) “possession of instruments of crime” (1st-degree misdemeanor).
4) “reckless endangerment of another person” (2nd-degree felony).
5) “riot” (3rd-degree felony).
6) “failure to disperse” (2nd-degree misdemeanor).
7) “disorderly conduct” (2nd-degree misdemeanor).
“obstructing a highway” (3rd-degree misdemeanor).
As for hate crimes laws, some complaints raised aren't exactly accurate. One was that the laws grant some people more protection than others and that's not equal. That's NOT true. The other was that all crimes involve hate and evidently can be equated on that line of reasoning. That's more debatable but I would also say, easily disprovable by example. More to come later...
