Do you hate hate crime? Give your views!

An Independent Review of Hate Crime Legislation in Scotland

Give your views on hate crime and the need to change the Scottish laws about it.

This is an independent review by Lord Bracadale. Lord Bracadale is a retired judge who has been asked to look at hate crime law and see if it needs to change. The law on hate crime is to protect people who become the victim because of their:
1. Race (the country they or their family come from)
2. Religion
3. Disability
4. Sexual orientation (a person's sexual preference or identity as bisexual, heterosexual, or homosexual)
5. Transgender identity (being born a man and living as a woman or born a woman and living as a man)

We want to know what you think about the current law on hate crime. We want to know if you think it works. We also want to know if you think it should change so everyone knows that hate crime is wrong and that it will be punished.

You can find the review here. Respond by 23rd November
