Regulation of Internet Hate Sites


Regulation of Internet Hate Sites

A hate crime is commonly defined as “a criminal offense committed against persons, property, or society that is motivated, in whole or in part, by an offender’s bias against an individual’s or a group’s perceived race, religion, ethnic/national origin, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation” (Taylor, Fritsch, Liederbach, & Holt, 2011, p. 192). Hate crimes are illegal and most states have hate crime statutes that provide enhanced penalties for these types of crimes. Contemporary technology allows hate to be spread farther and wider through the use of hate sites than can be done by word of mouth. These sites are accessible to anyone with a computer. While hate crimes are illegal and often carry harsh penalties, hate sites are not illegal. Those who launch hate sites rely on the U.S. Constitution and their right to freedom of speech as protection from the law.

For this Discussion, consider whether hate sites should be monitored and regulated. Think about whether or not monitoring and regulating these sites might infringe upon freedom of speech.
