Expanding hate laws

http://m.guardian.co.uk/uk/2013/apr/03/manchester-police-goths-punks-hat...

In response to a girl who was murder because she was a Goth in Manchester, police are now noting attacks on subcultures as hate crimes.

I don't believe there is any laws to back this up sadly, but I applaud the Manchester Police for being proactive.

So my question is now the anti hate laws cover Religion, Race, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Transgender, should they be expanded to include subcultures?

I don't think that committing an act of violence against someone because thier Goth, Emo, Punk, Trekkie, Mathalete, Hippy, hip hop or whatever other subculture you can think of is anymore acceptable then any other identity group.
