Murder as a hate Crime?

That's what they are charging Erica Menendez with after she confessed to pushing a man to his death in front of a NYC subway train. 
   What's wrong with plain old first degree murder?  That's been a crime since Moses brought the ten commandents down from Sinai.  The punishment for murder  under the law is harsh enough for any one's taste.
Why invent a new crime with a fancy name?
Welfare for lawyers anyone?
