Hate Crimes Charges for Maryland Attackers

I am very glad the good people of Maryland saw fit to charge these 2 with a hate crime. If this was not one, I don't know what is.
There are strong opinions about the use of Hate Crimes laws and they are often not used when they should.
A Hate Crimes charge will add more years to the sentence. Both these girls will be found guilty. Of that there is no doubt. Frankly, every single employee that did nothing should be fired.
Thanks to the jackass that filmed the whole thing. It proves without doubt the woman was attacked and is proof of the kind of violence the Transgender population could face every time they walk out the door. No one should have to live in fear of bottom dwellers like this.

Hate crimes charges have been filed against the two Maryland teens arrested last month for the brutal attack on a transgender woman at a Baltimore McDonald's.
The indictment returned Monday by a Baltimore County grand jury charges Teonna Brown with assault and a hate crime in the attack on Chrissy Lee Polis last month. She is also charged with assaulting a customer and a McDonald's employee who tried to intervene. A 14-year-old girl is facing the same charges in juvenile court. A videotape of the April 18 beating posted online shows a woman being attacked repeatedly while an employee and customer try to stop them. The woman then appears to have a seizure.
The day after the attack, McDonald's fired the employee who filmed the incident with his cell phone rather than attempting to intervene.
