The McHatecrime is now a reality
What is a hate crime: Any crime which is perceived by the victim or any other person as being motivated (wholly or partly) by malice or ill will towards a social group.
If someone targets you, or someone else, because of a dislike or prejudice of your disability, race, religion, sexual orientation or transgender identity then you should report this to the police as a hate crime. The person experiencing the hate crime does not always need to be in one of these groups.
This Bill adds age to that list and allows sex to be added at a later date.
The Bill creates a new crime of stirring up hatred against any of the protected groups covered by the Bill.
The Bill also abolishes the offence of blasphemy which has not been prosecuted in Scotland for more than 175 years.
