People v. Morgan (Cal. Ct. App. - April 7, 2011)

In 2000, William Morgan brandishes a hammer.  That's a misdemeanor.  But he does it as part of a hate crime.  Oops.  That's a felony.  He pleads guilty.

By 2008, Morgan has learned his lesson.  He no longer brandishes a hammer.  This time, he assaults the victime with a knife.

Oops.  That's a felony too.  Assault with a deadly weapon.  It also doesn't help that he did this while on bail.  We don't like that.  Twelve years in prison.

By 2020, I assume Morgan will have learned his lesson again.  And use a gun this time.
