How does the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) "protect" women if the death penalty does not "protect" anyone?

Besides, allowing non-Indians to be tried in an American Indian court system is unconstitutional -- an issue for most Republicans who are against this latest version of VAWA, not a hatred of women as the left is touting.

This is in the same category as the so-called hate-crime laws that add liberal agendas to laws already on the books that make assault for any reason a crime.

People who are wealthy are targets of crime and violence simply because of who they are; where are their "extra protection" laws? Absurd.
