Previous witnesses, such as from the LGBTQ community, have identified that historically there have not been many safe places for them to gather, so they've relied on allied businesses, or even identifiable streets, which are not really covered in this legislation.
I guess that's a struggle for us. These places are identifiable places with an identifiable group. If someone were to target them with hateful graffiti directed specifically at that group, does that simply become mischief against city property rather than something meriting a stiffer sentence under this proposed legislation? That's my line of questioning. Do you see areas, based on your group's own experiences, that have been excluded by this and that we should broaden while at the same time becoming more specific? You see the struggle we're having here.
