Is This A 'Hate Crime'?

Story here.

The cleaning woman whose body was found in a New York City building had been hogtied and her mouth taped shut — left with her gold crucifix dangling over it — before being tossed down an air duct, authorities said Sunday.

If, instead of a crucifix, it had been a pink triangle (the homosexual symbol) or an Islamic crescent, you can bet the farm that the Left and the Old Media would treat it immediately as a "hate crime". And justice authorities would naturally kowtow to the pressure and add "hate crime" to the murder charge.
