Sure, but Bob's family and community is terrorized and suffers too. That's why murder is illegal.

That brings up another thought; isn't all unexpected violence terrifying? Wouldn't a wealthy person be terrified if they were mugged? Couldn't it be considered a hate crime since the assailant "hates" the wealthy person by violently depriving them of property?

The law should only be concerned with punishing bad behavior, not bad thought.
