Thus the term abuse comes into play. In Nevada certain crimes against the elderly (over 60) have enhanced sentencing - twice the normal sentence. Don't mess with us old guys!
Hahahaha are you telling me that stealing a bike that happens to be an older persons bike, is a crime against the elderly? I think its a crime in general. But not a crime against the elderly.
I'm not so sure thats the way it works... Stealing is wrong no matter how you look at it... But that sounds to me like if you stole a black persons bike that its a racist hate crime. Doesn't make too much sense.
Again don't get me wrong. Stealing is wrong all around no matter how you look at it.
