If someone came into my house without my knowledge I would feel invaded. My house would be my space and I shouldn't have to let anyone that I don't want in into it. If someone broke the doors of my house to come into it and vandalize it I would be very angry and upset. My things are my personal belongings, no one else should be allowed to touch them or destroy them. It wouldn't be fair to me or my family, I would be very surprised to see my house like that. If someone destroyed the place where I watch television, I would not be very happy. Sitting in the living room watching my favorite shows is very relaxing and they would have ruined that place for me. If someone destroyed the place where I slept, ate and lived I would be very mad. If someone used the bathroom and defecated on the bathroom floor beside the toilet I would be disgusted. If someone wrote disgusting words on my wall with my art supplies I would be embarrassed and insulted. If someone sat down to have a drink after they wrote disgusting things on my wall I would be very mad. I would probably be so angry I would try to destroy their personal property. If someone made me feel less then equal I would probably brush it off because they are obviously not worth my time. If someone took dead fish from my freezer and spread it on my floors to rote I would make them come and clean it up. I would not stand for behavior like that in my house. If the local police didn't do anything about it I would take it to court and get a lawyer. I wouldn't be treated with that sort of disrespect, if the local law enforcement didn't want to help I would find someone who did. If no one cared that this happed I would be upset because I would feel as though they didn't think it was a bad thing to do. It was a very bad thing to do though so I'm sure someone would show some respect and side with me.

A hate crime is an act against a group, for their race and others, like those.
If someone came into my house without my knowing and I didn't know them at all, I would be very angry and upset. When people do things against me I do not feel very good.
If someone tried to vandalize my house and did just because of who I am, I would be serious and would make sure that this did not go unpunished. I would also be shocked and slightly afraid.
When people destroy my things I can get angry, but if someone I don't know came in and destroyed the place where I read (No T.V in my house in Norway) I would feel like they thought that I was not human, and did not deserve the pleasure of reading.
My house is my house if I caught the person doing that I would not be able to hold back anything and would want to make their lives as hard as they made mine.
I would feel like they think that they are good enough to not need to use a toilet and so much better then me.
At that point I would be in tears because it would make me feel very small because this person managed the time to write this and write all that.
If they took a break because they had the time to take a break and were that uncaring about what happened to the house or person living there. They would not be human.
I would feel like to make us equal again I should break something of theirs.
Just sad that they had started running out of ideas of how to hurt me, so they did something very absurd.
I would not be able to think of anyone in that whole town as nice people ever again. I also would not let the police get away with that and would sue them or file a case about them.
To be helpless is the worst feeling of all the other feelings that are around, you feel weak and like the whole world is out to get you. This is what I think is why some people kill themselves. I would leave that town for good.

I don't like the idea of hate crimes because the people who are performing them are ignorant, obnoxious people. Having someone vandalize your house because of your sexuality, nationality or color is completely stupid and people just need to let other people live in peace. Destroying someones house just because they are different is not right.

If someone came into my house I would feel really scared because I wouldn't know what they were planing to do.

If someone broke down my doors i'd be mad because I'd have to replace them and it costs a lot of money to do that.

If someone destroyed the place where I sat, I be really mad and upset because They destroyed my property that I have to pay for.

If someone completely destroyed the place where I ate, slept and lived i'm be really upset and frustrated because I didn't do anything wrong do deserve that.

If someone defecated on the floor beside the toilet I'd be disgusted and angry because its gross and wrong and disrespectful.

If someone wrote words of hate on my walls I'd probably cry because that's a really horrible thing to do and words do hurt a lot.

If some one took a break while this happened I'd be furious because it shows how much they really care about other people's feelings.

If someone made me feel less than equal, I'd be really sad because I wouldn't feel like everyone else and it would make me feel like nobody likes me for the way that I am.

If someone took dead fish from my freezer and left it on the floor to rot, i'd probably be grossed out and probably vomit. That's just gross.

If the police didn't make a report or arrest when they found the people who did this, i'd be very very very mad because that's not right. If they destroyed my home and did all this stuff to it they deserve to go to jail and be punished for what they did.

I would feel scared and alone and afraid because it would seem like nobody cares and nobody wants to help me because of the way that I am and they dislike me for no good reason.

If someone came into my house without my knowledge I would probably be scared. I think it would be kinda weird without my knowing and not knowing what they would do to me. If someone vandalized my house I would be upset because I don't know why they would do such a terrible thing. It would also make me mad because no person has the right to do that. I would be upset because I love my seat. I can sit back and relax and some times even go to sleep. I would be upset if someone destroyed where I slept ate and lived because I love my nice comfortable bed. It would be a shame if some one destroyed it. If someone went on the floor beside my toilet I would be upset because I would never do that. If someone wrote hate messages to me using my art supply's I would be extremely upset because those are my things and my money and my wall. If someone sat down and had a coke while they were terrorizing my house I would be very upset. If someone made me feel less then equal it would make me upset. I wish they wouldn't do that because I probably didn't do anything bad to them.
If someone took fish and put it all over my floor I would be upset because it would smell. Plus I would have to clean it up after. If police officers didn't make arrests when people vandalized my house I would be very very upset. If no one cared or tried to help my situation It would make me very upset just to know that no one cared.

If someone came into my house without my knowledge, I would feel scared and invaded. If someone broke down the doors of my house in order to come in and vandalize it, I would be angry at that person but I would also feel afraid. If someone destroyed the place that I sat and watched television, I would be devastated. I would also be confused as to why they'd do this. I would probably be thinking that there are much more valuable things to me than the spot that I watch TV. If someone destroyed the place that I slept, ate, and lived, I would be upset. I would feel hurt that someone would be doing this on purpose. If someone didn't bother to use the toilet in my house and just did their business on the floor beside the toilet, I would be disgusted. If someone wrote disgusting words of hate towards me on my own walls with my own art supplies, I would be afraid for my life. I would also be afraid for my family. I would feel upset if someone stopped to take a drink while this was happening. I would be devastated actually because this shows that they had little to no feelings for what they were doing to my house. I would feel depressed if someone mad me feel less equal by destroying my property and I would wonder what made them do this. I would be disgusted if someone took frozen fish from my freezer and left it on the floor to rot. I would feel like it was unnecessary to do that. And that that is just disgusting. I would feel singled out if the police did nothing when they found possible suspects. I would feel like no one was there for me and that there was no hope left for me and then I would be even more afraid for my own life than I was before because it seems like they don't even care. I would feel very alone if no one did anything to help me with this.

Hate crimes are horrible. Imagine someone breaking into your house and u don't no it that is a scary thought. Then to top it off they broke down the door wow that is also very scary. Then they do horrible things like write stuff on the walls and smashing up cars. and if the police did nothing that would make someone very mad since it is obvious who did it. then this makes a person feel like they are not an equal and that is not how somebody should feel.

1. I would feel like someone invaded my privacy.
2. I would feel like they had no respect for my stuff.
3. I would feel angry because that is an important place to me.
4. I would be mad because that would show the no respect they had.
5. That would gross me out and make me mad.
6.That would also make me angry and want to find them.
7. That would show that they did not respect me.
8. I would not want to feel less than equal and would be mad if someone treated me that way.
9. That would show how much of a nasty person they were.
10. That would show that the officers did not care about the law and what had happened.
11. I would stop trusting people.

Hate crimes are a very hurtful thing. They discriminate against certain races sexuality and just who your are. If someone came into my house without my knowledge I would first be a little nervous because I didn't know them. Then I would be mad because thats my house not theres they shouldn't be in it. First I would be upset because they trashed my house. Then I would be mad and wanna find who did it and bring them to jail or get my revenge. Once again I would be upset and angry that they were inside my house destroying the place that I love to relax. I would be mostly upset and hurt that they did this. I would be grossed out. That would be disgusting. That would be the first thing I'd clean up. I would be hurt. Thats my own property that is writing these hateful words that carry a lot of hurt. I would be infuriated! While they just sat there and watched my home was being destroyed. I would feel like an outsider. That I was alone. It would be the most disgusting thing ever. My house would stink everything would stink. I would be mad. That would not be OK with me I would be so mad I would march up to the court house and have the judge bring us to court. I would honestly be really hurt. I would probably move if no one cared.

Hate crime is different from a regular crime because a regular crime is like shop lifting, stealing, robbery. Hate crime is usually directed at someone because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and more.


1.If someone came into my house without knowledge I would be angry, because they didn't have my permission, I would be scared too because I don't know who this person is, I don't know what there doing, or what there thinking about doing. They could be taking my families things. If someone broke the doors of my home to vandalize it I would be once again angry, because why would they want to vandalize my house out of everyone else's house down my road, or in my neighborhood. If someone destroyed the place where I sit and watch television, I would be down right pissed off, because this is where my family sits, where I sit and read, this is where we host family events. If someone destroyed that area I would be so mad. If someone destroyed the place where I slept, ate, and lived I would want to fight them, why would they want to take away something that is mine? That is my families. This is our shelter, why would anyone think of destroying it. I would want them to be punished, and I would want to seek revenge with them as well, because I want them to feel how I feel. If someone didn't bother to use the toilet, and they just went beside my toilet. If I knew who did that I would make them clean there disgusting mess up,That is so rude, and so disgusting. If someone wrote hateful words on my walls with my own art supplies I would most likely be crying at that point, because my house had already been destroyed enough just to walk into my own room and see that would tear me into pieces bit by bit. I would be horrified. If someone sat down and took a break drank my water, ate my food during all of this, and I found evidence, I would turn that into the police, because he/she's DNA is on the glass or whatever they drank off of. They can find out who did it and punish them. If someone made me feel less then equal by destroying my property I would feel hopeless, sad, I wouldn't want be living where I was living. If someone put dead fish on my floors and let them rot I would probably by grossed out by the smell of it because I am pretty sure that they would be smelling at that point. I would be just shocked most likely. If police didn't file a report when they found the suspects of this party I would be so angry! I would tell my mom to go down the station and do something about it, because how would the officers feel if there house was destroyed like this. If someone took a dump by there toilet, but not in it. They would most likely file something because it's them, but when it comes to other people no, of course not. If no one seemed to care about the situation that just happened, I would feel like my world was crashing down, but I would have no one to go to and talk to because no one cares. Treat people they way you would want to be treated, I am 100% positive that no one would want this to happen to them. Think about how the other people feel when you say hurtful things to them. These people are human, they have feelings, they can feel hurt. Think if someone did this too you.

If I were a Victim of a Hate crime I would feel so helpless and alone. I'd feel as if no one cared about me and that I was unequal to the rest of the world.The things that we talked about in class amazed me. I was so shocked that someone could do something so hateful and mean. I don't think I would wrap my head around the fact that someone would hate me for something such as my Race, religions, color or sexual orientation. I am still a person, even if we don't share the same beliefs and I think that I deserve to be treated like an equal, I think everyone should be treated like an equal.
