I understand the strong divide between Democrats and Republicans.

I also understand that many in the Democratic Party are furious about the war in Iraq.

However, I don't understand this-

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. — A Fredericksburg man is facing several assault charges after police say he hunted down a group of Republicans and confronted them in their home over their beliefs.

Police said Andrew Stone, 23, recently went to a home in Fredericksburg at around 5:30 p.m. after he saw a name and nearby address on a Republican Web site.

Stone confronted three residents about their political viewpoints, police said. When he found out the residents supported the Republican-led war effort in Iraq, police say Stone became enraged.
Stone then hit the homeowner and his roommates several times as they tried to force him out of the door, police said.

Stone faces three counts of assault and battery.

Really folks, there is no need for violence. This guy went looking for Republicans to beat up.

Could that be considered a "hate crime"?
