Dem Rep Wilson on Trump Calling Omarosa a ‘Dog’: ‘How Dare He?’

Tuesday, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) reacted to President Donald Trump’s tweet referring to former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog,” asking “how dare” the president call a “woman of color” that. When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2018 “How dare he? He has taken this country to its knees,” Wilson charged. “We already have racism raining down all over America. People can’t even enjoy themselves. They can’t even enjoy an evening out. Wilson pointed out how Trump “has a nickname for everyone,” adding her nickname for the president is “Don and the first-grade reader.” She later stated, “Lebron James said it correctly when he said racism has always existed, but President Trump has emboldened the racists to come forward without any fear of punitive actions and we have got to stop this because I could be next.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

“They’ve been everywhere — in schools, in places of business like Walmart, on the street,” SPLC President Richard Cohen said.

Critics accused Trump of fostering xenophobia and Islamophobia during the divisive presidential campaign. Recent days have witnessed ugly episodes of racist or anti-Semitic, pro-Trump graffiti along with threats or attacks against Muslims.

The President-elect said he was “so saddened” to hear about vitriol hurled by some of his supporters against minorities.

“If it helps, I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: Stop it,” Trump told CBS’ “60 Minutes.”

Overall, reported hate crimes spiked 6%, but the number could be higher because many incidents go unreported, Lynch said.

Here’s what some Americans are dealing with across the country:

INTIMIDATION, VIOLENCE AFTER TRUMP WIN

Mosques get letters calling for genocide

A group calling itself “Americans for a Better Way” sent copies of a letter to at least five California mosques, calling Muslims “a vile and filthy people” and advocating genocide.

“There’s a new sherriff [sic] in town — President Donald Trump,” reads the letter, which is addressed to “the Children of Satan.”

“He is going to cleanse America and make it shine again,” it continues. “And, he’s going to start with you muslims [sic]. He’s going to do to you muslims [sic] what Hitler did to the jews [sic]. You muslims [sic] would be wise to pack your bags and get out of Dodge.”

The San Jose Police Department called the letter a “hate-motivated” incident and said it will investigate.

‘Go home’ scrawled on car

A Puerto Rican family’s car was vandalized on November 17, with the words “Trump” and “Go home” scratched into the car in West Springfield, Massachusetts, according to police and one of the victims, who spoke to CNN.

Jorge Santiago, an Army veteran who has served two deployments overseas, noticed scratches in the family’s red sedan after he put his daughter on the bus to school, said his wife, Toni Santiago. He reported the vandalism to the West Springfield police soon afterward, she said.

West Springfield Police Department Capt. Daniel Spaulding said detectives are following up and the investigation is ongoing. They have not determined whether it was a hate crime.

The Santiagos are the only minority family on their street, Toni Santiago said. Their family supported Hillary Clinton during the election, but they didn’t have any signs on their lawn, Santiago said. They have one small Clinton sticker on their other car parked in their driveway closer to the house, which was not vandalized, Santiago said.

“It is terrible. It is horrific, and still, in a way, I’m not surprised,” Santiago said. “Racism was always there, but I feel now with our current President having been so vocal in some of the things he says, people feel more comfortable showing that racism, and our family was a target of it.”

Both Toni and Jorge are US citizens, Santiago said. Jorge was born in Puerto Rico and has lived in Massachusetts for many years, Santiago said. Toni grew up in Massachusetts and is a social worker in nearby Holyoke, Massachusetts, she said. They have three children, ages 2, 8 and 12. Toni posted a photo of the vandalism to Facebook and shared it with CNN.

“My first reaction is we need to get this out. We need to do something,” Santiago said. “People think ‘it’s not going to happen in my town,’ or Massachusetts is a liberal state, but this is real hate, and it’s not OK.”

Uber driver verbally assaulted

A motorist in a white SUV unleashed this hateful rant last week at an Uber driver in New York City.

The Uber driver, a Muslim and a US citizen originally from Morocco, captured the incident on video. It occurred in the Astoria section of Queens on November 17.

The Uber driver told CNN the motorist cut him off, yelled at him and continued to follow him for a few blocks.

When they both pulled up to a stop, the man asked the Uber driver to roll down his window. The motorist then spewed profane and racist abuse at the man.

One quote: “Trump is president a******, so you can kiss your visa goodbye, scumbag. They’ll deport you soon, don’t worry, you f***ing terrorist.”

The Uber driver, who came to the United States about seven years ago, asked CNN that his name not be used over concerns for his and his family’s safety.

Chris Cody, the Uber driver’s next passenger, asked him how his day was going. The driver explained what had just happened and showed Cody his video, Cody told CNN.

Cody asked if he could post it on social media and share it with others, he told CNN.

Later that day, Cody put the video on his Facebook page, writing, “this is not a political post… this is a post about the disgusting mentality that some uneducated & xenophobic Americans somehow still subscribe to in the 21st century.”

The video has gone viral.

Vandalism at Adam Yauch Park

The vandalism was discovered Friday afternoon, according to Shelton. A resident reported it to police, who are investigating the incident.

New York City Councilman Brad Lander, who represents that part of Brooklyn, wrote on Twitter: “Yet more hatred & anti-Semitism from Trump supporters.”

He also tweeted, “No place for hate. We will not be cowed.”

On Twitter, the Beastie Boys asked fans to join local officials Sunday morning at a rally in the park.

“Hate has no place in Brooklyn, NYC, or America,” the tweet said. “Join us … to stand against hate messages.

Lander told CNN the graffiti had been painted over. Instagram images show hearts and flowers over the graffiti.

The swastika discovered Friday in a Brooklyn park was the 13th reported in the city since Election Day, according to Robert Boyce, chief of detectives for the New York Police Department.

Other swastikas have been found in a school in Manhattan and a housing development in Brooklyn, Boyce told reporters. The number is up from two in the same period of time in November last year, Boyce said.

According to the New York police, the number of hate crimes in the city has increased 31.5% in the year to date from 2015 to 2016 — up from 250 to 328. Hate crimes targeting Muslims are up from 12 to 25, and hate crimes targeting Jews are up from 102 to 111, the police said.

Boyce said the swastika at the Brooklyn playground was the only one that included Trump’s name.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters this week, “A lot of us are very concerned that a lot of divisive speech was used during the campaign by the President-elect, and we do not yet know what the impact of that will be on our country.”

A note with obscenities

A woman reported a frightening incident that happened while she was hiking at Mission Peak in Fremont, California.

“I was surprised, I was taken aback by the ignorance,” Pancholy said on “CNN Tonight” on Friday evening.

“It breaks my heart that violence is spewing everywhere,” Pancholy said. “It makes me wonder what our children will be facing, how will they cope with this? It’s a different America that they’re experiencing something that’s new to this generation.”

A swastika, the words ‘Trump’ and ‘die’ painted on car

In Denver, a transgender woman’s car was spray-painted early Wednesday morning with a swastika and the words “Trump” and “die,” among other derogatory terms.

Amber Timmons, 43, noticed the swastika as she was heading to her car to leave for work. She didn’t make it to work that day.

“You get shocked, you don’t believe it’s going to happen to you,” she said.

Before the vandalism, she had the words “love trumps hate” written on her back window, and #notmypresident on the windows of the rear doors. And she intends to put those messages back on.

“Me and a couple of really good friends got together and got the spray paint off,” said Timmons, who does not intend to press charges.

Her message to the perpetrators?

“That it’s OK,” she said. “It was done out of fear. That’s what hate is. Hate is fear. And we can fix that fear by love. It’s OK. I forgive them.”

The Denver Police Department’s Hate Crimes Unit is investigating the incident as a possible act of criminal mischief, though there are no suspects at the moment.

‘Build the wall’ chanted at high school tournament

Students from a small border town in northwest Texas say they were the target of ethnically charged slurs while warming up for a regional volleyball tournament.

Amid the verbal abuse from the stands, apparently from supporters of the Archer City team, Fort Hancock coach Melissa Saldana called a timeout.

“We’ve got to ignore what’s going on. We’ve got to stay focused and we’ve got to get tough,” Saldana said she told her players.

The Fort Hancock team lost, but Saldana said they were still victorious.

“My girls, they rose above and they handled themselves very well,” Saldana told KVIA.

The superintendent of the Archer City Independent School District apologized for the students’ actions, but Fort Hancock’s schools chief is still upset.

“What troubles us is that no game official, an official at the venue, even the officials at the game, school officials, nobody stood up to put an end to this,” Fort Hancock Independent School District Superintendent Jose Franco told the station.

‘Make America White Again,’ softball dugout reads

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered a joint investigation after someone painted a dugout wall in Wellsville, about 80 miles southeast of Buffalo.

The message: A swastika, surrounded by the words, ‘Make America White Again.”

The governor said both New York State Police and the State Division of Human Rights will investigate the alleged hate crime.

“New York has zero tolerance for bigotry, fear and hatred, and those who seek to undermine the core values this state and nation were founded upon,” Cuomo said.

‘Heil Trump’ painted on church

On Sunday morning, the Rev. Kelsey Hutto got the news that vandals had painted “Heil Trump,” an anti-gay slur and a swastika on the side of her church, Saint David’s Episcopal in Beanblossom, Indiana.

She told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Thursday that she was at first sad, but believes that the church was targeted because it has always been inclusive to everyone. So, she said, she is taking comfort that whoever did this actually did this for the right reason, because the church has always been welcoming to everyone.

“Doing the right thing is not always the popular thing.”

In that spirit, the church has decided to leave the graffiti as is until November 30.

“If we decide to look at these and be embarrassed, and consider them hateful and angry, and decide to cover them up, then we give power to the idea that hate is more powerful than love,” Hutto said. “And that’s not the case.”

The Brown County Sheriff’s Department tells CNN it is investigating the incident. Investigators don’t currently have any suspects or leads, but they have shared their report with the state police department and are hoping someone in the community will come forward with information if they have it.

Swastika, ‘Trump’ at New York campus

Hours after Cuomo reported the Wellsville incident, the governor announced another alleged hate crime — this one at the State University of New York College at Genese.

Someone spray-painted a swastika and the word “Trump” on a dorm building.

“It is unacceptable that this is the second investigation that we have had to announce in the last several hours,” Cuomo said in a statement Saturday.

“To any New Yorker who is scared, I want you to know that we have your back, that we will keep you safe, and that protecting your rights is what America stands for.”

Muslim student threatened with lighter

Police in Ann Arbor, Michigan, were investigating reports a man approached a Muslim student and threatened to set her on fire with a lighter unless she removed her hijab.

“Our nation’s leaders, and particularly President-elect Donald Trump, need to speak out forcefully against the wave of anti-Muslim incidents sweeping the country after Tuesday’s election,” Executive Director Dawud Walid said.

‘Trump!’ written on Muslim prayer room door in New York

At New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, students discovered Trump’s name written on the door to a prayer room for Muslims on Wednesday, school officials said.

“Our campus is not immune to the bigotry that grips America,” the NYU Muslim Students Association said in a Facebook posting.

School spokesman Kathleen Hamilton said the school has many immigrant students, with about 20% from abroad.

“It’s a real melting pot here,” she said. “We all believe this very much, that the university is a place of free expression. It has to be safe to be so.”

New York police are investigating.

Graffiti in high school: ‘Trump,’ ‘Whites only,’ ‘White America’

Minnesota high school student Moses Karngbaye said he was terrified to see racist graffiti scrawled inside a bathroom.

Someone had written “#Go back to Africa” and “Make America great again” on a toilet paper dispenser at Maple Grove Senior High School.

The bathroom door was also covered with graffiti, including “Whites only,” “White America” and “Trump.”

Karngbaye sent photos of the graffiti to his mother, Denise Karngbaye, who told WCCO she takes the attack personally.

“I train my kids to respect everybody, regardless of their race, their ethnicity, their background,” she said.

Hate Crimes – ICAAD

Under the current Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), only 3% percent of all hate crimes are documented through the UCR Program. In 2012, the UCR reported 7,713 victims of hate crimes, whereas, the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) reported on average 259,700 hate crimes a year from 2007-2011. The 34 fold gap in documenting hate crimes reveals systemic flaws that result in the government failing to devote adequate resources: to train police officers in properly identifying bias indicators in crime, and to protect particularly vulnerable communities from hate crimes.

According to NCVS, 65% of all hate crime victimizations are never reported to the police. Many of the reasons stem from mistrust of law enforcement to: investigate their claim thoroughly, prosecute the case as a hate crime, prevent retaliation, and not use their position to deport victims who lack legal immigrant status. Moreover, as there is no federal mandate to ensure recording of hate crimes by local law enforcement jurisdictions, reporting is voluntary. As a result of the combination of voluntary reporting with a failure to adequately train police officers to identify bias indicators in crime, there is little chance that the scope of violence directed at vulnerable communities will be understood. Ultimately, the culture of a police department can be a strong determinant on whether hate crimes documentation is seen by police officers as necessary to protect vulnerable communities or functions to support the agendas of gay and minority groups.

ICAAD has advocated directly before the U.S. government on this issue and filed a number of reports to the UN Human Rights Committee and treaty body review committees on these concerns.

The FBI UCR data masks a widespread problem of reporting hate crimes under the Hate Crimes Statistics Act (HCSA). Under the UCR, the FBI recorded 5,796 bias-motivated incidents which resulted in 7,164 victims in 2012.[1] Out of the 13,022 jurisdictions that participated in the program covering 248,809,710 people, 86.2% of agencies reported zero hate crimes.[2] This does not mean that they failed to report; rather, they affirmatively reported to the FBI that no hate crimes occurred in their jurisdiction.[3] Further, in 43 of those jurisdictions, the population exceeds 100,000 people.[4] Breaking this down, jurisdictions representing the equivalent of almost a third (76,542,952) of the U.S. population, reported zero hate crimes.

How is this possible? The FBI, in fact, has never reported more than 10,000 hate crimes in any given year.[5] In contrast, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS)[6] 2013 Special Report on hate crime victimizations, relying on data from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), found that from 2007-2011 an average of 259,700 hate crime victimizations occurred each year.[7] In 2003-2009, the NCVS reported 195,000 hate crimes per year.[8] Clearly, the FBIs UCR data accounts for only a marginal number of bias-motivated crimes (3%) in the U.S. The variance between the UCR and NCVS represents a 34-fold gap.

The NCVS has overcome some of the limitations of survey methodology through the use of representative sampling on a national level in a longitudinal or repeated cross-sectional design.[9] Furthermore, scholars have found that because the data is gathered from households

where victimizations happened within the last six months, the NCVS data provides a more direct check on the true amount of crime, [and therefore] it is considered superior to the UCR for this purpose.[10]

A big part of the data gap, as revealed by the NCVS, is that law enforcement was not notified about hate crime victimizations in 65% of the cases documented by NCVS.[11] The fact that two-thirds of victims dont report to the police suggests a larger systemic problem, which we address in the following section. However, even if we take into account that almost two-thirds of victims or bystanders never reported hate crimes to the police, it still leaves us with an average of over 90,000 hate crimes per year that were reported to law enforcement. Thus, the gap in underreporting by local agencies to the FBI is still greater than 10 fold.

Package bombings that killed 2 in state where hate crimes …

Three package bombings that killed two people and injured two others, all of them African-American or Hispanic, in Austin, Texas, may have been motivated by hate, authorities said.

Killed were a 17-year-old boy, an orchestral musician and essay contest winner, and a 39-year-old father, both of them African-American. A 75-year-old Hispanic woman was critically injured and an African-American woman in her 40s was also wounded in the explosions.

We are not ruling out hate, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said in a press conference this week of the bombings that occurred in an 11-day span this month. In an interview with ABC News, Manley speculated on possible motivations for the crimes: Is this driven by an ideology? A philosophy? Is it driven by hate?

If whoever planted the exploding packages is found to have been motivated by hate, the bombings will be part of a larger trend of an increase in hate crimes in the Texas capital. But experts suspect hate crimes overall are underreported in Texas, and federal and state data obtained by ABC News show very few suspects are ever convicted of hate crimes in the state.

“We dont know for sure what the motivation is, not until the suspect is caught, questioned and prosecuted will we know that,” cautioned Ryan Lenz, an investigative writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, an anti-bigotry organization.

But he noted that with all of the package bombings apparently aimed at minority residents, “There is the commonality of target.”

Reports of hate crimes in Austin rose by 46 percent in 2016, but that is against the relatively small totals of 13 in 2015 and 19 in 2016, according to the FBIs annual report on hate crimes. The city has nearly 950,000 residents.

Statewide in Texas — the nations second-most populous state with about 26.9 million residents — the total number of reported hate crimes in 2016 was just 178, according to the Texas Department of Public Safetys Texas Crime Report.

That fits the trend of roughly 200 hate crimes getting reported each year to law enforcement agencies in Texas, according to publicly-available Texas Crime Reports analyzed by ABC News.

But those numbers strike hate-crimes expert Brian Levin as suspiciously low for such a big state.

Relative to its population, Texas reports fewer hate crimes than other big states, said Levin, a criminologist and attorney who directs the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.

He noted that California — which with 38.8 million residents is the only state bigger than Texas — reported 931 hate crimes in 2016. New York, the nations fourth-most populous state with a population of 19.4 million reported 595 such crimes.

Something is wrong when Texas, as a state, has fewer hate crimes than some of the major cities in the U.S., Levin said.

Texas had a rate of 0.7 hate crimes reported for every 100,000 residents, far lower than the rate of 3.1 for every 100,000 residents in New York and 2.4 for every 100,000 in California, using 2017 Census population figures.

Levin said law enforcement in Texas could do more to ensure officers recognize and investigate potential hate crimes.

Indeed, Texas does not mandate training for police officers on how to investigate potential hate crimes. Gretchen Gribsby with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement confirmed.

In addition, Texas geography with its high numbers of people living in rural areas may partially explain why there are relatively few reports of hate crimes in the state, said Lenz of the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Less densely populated areas tend to report fewer hate crimes, Lenz said.

But he said Texas isn’t alone in what he said is a general underreporting of such crimes.

Hate crimes are wildly underreported, I mean, horrifically underreported, Lenz said.

One reason may be that victims of hate crimes may be reluctant to report what happened, he said.

Hate crimes likely arent being reported because victims fear law enforcement may not believe them or they may be embarrassed and not report to police at all for fear of putting a target on their home, Lenz said.

Even among the relatively small number of incidents reported to police as hate crimes in Texas, a yet smaller number results in cases brought to court.

Since 2001, when Texas enacted its current hate-crime law, only in 26 instances was a hate-crime finding requested of the courts, according to the Texas Office of Court Administration.

And in only 23 of those instances did a judge or jury confirm them as hate crimes, according to Megan LaVoie of the Texas Office of Court Administration said.

So, while roughly 200 hate crimes are reported by Texas law enforcement agencies each year, over a 17-year period only 23 were confirmed by the courts as alleged hate crimes.

Experts believe that may be because the state’s hate-crime law — called the Byrd Statute after James Byrd Jr., an African-American man who was dragged to his death behind a pickup truck by white supremacists in 1998 — has strict limits.

The law, for example, doesn’t allow for perpetrators to be found guilty of a hate crime on top of any other crime they committed. It also only allows judges or juries to impose harsher sentences for the hate crime if a prosecutor can prove a suspect was motivated by hate.

Proving motivation can be nearly impossible, Lenz said.

Knowing the motivation of an assailant and being able to convince a jury that that motivation was the primary motivation in committing that crime is a pretty high hurdle for prosecutors, Lenz said.

A criminal law professor in Texas agreed.

Its hard enough to prove some crimes beyond a reasonable doubt without adding another element like motive, said Brian Serr, professor of criminal law and procedure at Baylor University. Prosecutors have to decide, Should I take on trying to prove this suspect committed a hate crime when Im already putting a bad guy in jail for the actual crime committed?

Experts interviewed by ABC News also said few hate crimes may be tried in court simply because prosecutors may not want to try to prove hate was the suspects motive when it is easier to show simply that the suspect is guilty of the crime committed, as Lenz said.

That doesnt mean perpetrators of hate crimes are walking free in Texas, Serr said.

Its not like a hate criminal is going to get off the hook if they arent prosecuted for a hate crime, he said. Hes getting the punishment he deserves without prosecutors having to go thru the process of proving motive.

The first package explosion occurred March 2, killing Anthony Stephan House, a 39-year-old father. Then two other packages blew up on March 12, one of them killing 17-year old Draylen Mason, a talented bass player who was set to enroll at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas for the next year.

Investigators believe that the trio of bombs displayed a level of sophistication, indicating that the bomb-maker or bomb-makers were highly skilled.

The devices were set up to be detonated by motion like shaking or jostling, which is why they exploded when they were picked up. They also had some sort of safety switch, which enabled the bomber to move the devices without blowing themselves up, the sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News.

Indiana lawmakers kill hate crimes bill again – indystar.com

Central Indiana Alliance Against Hate holds Hate Crime Law Rally at Indiana Statehouse Matt Kryger/IndyStar

Senate Republicans pulled the plug Tuesday on a hate crimes bill, leaving Indiana as one of only five states without such a law.

Senate leader David Long said Republicans could not reach agreement about Senate Bill 418, which would have allowed judges to impose tougher sentences for crimes motivated by factors such as race, religion, sex, gender identityand sexual orientation.

This is very disappointing, said Rajesh Patnaik, whose sign shop in northwest Indianapolis was vandalized with anti-Hindu graffiti in September. I was hoping there was momentum this time.

The decision comes despite a rise in reported hate crimes in Indiana and five months after a violent white nationalist rally last summer in Charlottesville, Va.

We could not reach consensus, said Sen. Susan Glick, R-LaGrange, who carried the legislation. Thats why there were so many amendments offered, and thats why we pulled it back.”

Long said he believes there is growing public acceptance for the legislation and he expects lawmakers to take it up again in 2019. But the measure is dead for this year, he said.

I think time will change some peoples opinions in our caucus, or well have different members in there in the future, he said. Its important not to misunderstand what happened today. Its not for a lack of caring or belief that you shouldnt do it. Its just how you do it and the language you use.

A recent poll indicated that nearly two-thirds of Hoosiers favor a hate crimes law. But such measures have consistently failed in recent years at the General Assembly amid fierce opposition from social conservatives, who argue hate crime laws create special protected classes that treat victims of similar crimes differently.

For example, prominent Republican attorney Jim Bopp argued last week that the legislation only adds stiffer penalties for crimes committed against people deemed worthy by liberals and the business community. The legislation would leave out Trump supporters who might be physically attacked solely for their political beliefs, he said.

But Glick, the bills author, countered that characteristics such as race, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation apply to everyone equally.

The bill was scheduled for a vote Tuesday in the Senate Corrections and Criminal Law Committee, but Chairman Mike Young decided not to hold a vote after Republicans failed to reach consensus during a private caucus meeting Monday.

Young said there had been an avalanche of amendments to the bill. They included changes that supporters considered detrimental. One would have stripped gender identity from the bill, and another would have allowed longer sentences based on any characteristic, belief, practice or association.

The difficulty is trying to find the language we can agree upon, Young said.

Conservatives have argued the legislation is unnecessary because the Indiana Supreme Court ruled in 2003 that judges can increase sentences for racially motivated crimes, even though that factor is not listed in Indianas list of aggravating circumstances.

But Glick and others, including Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, argue that the bill would encourage judges to consider such factors.

I think we can be more emphatic, Glick said.

Similar legislation has failed to advance for at least three years.

A hate crimes bill died last year on the same day the Jewish Community Center of Indianapolisreceived bomb threats. The year before thatit failed to advance despite a record 69 hate crimes being reported to the state. The measure also failed in 2015as Indiana was in an uproar over religious freedom and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

Supporters had hoped for a different outcome this year after a Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in August left one woman dead. That event was heavily promoted by the Indiana-based leader of a racist white nationalist group. A second Indiana man was arrested for assault and battery during the rally.

Supporters also hoped that Amazons interest in Indianapolis as one of 20 finalists for the online retailers second headquarters might help. The company has cited support for diversity as one of the factors it will consider in choosing a location.

Long dismissed concerns that the demise of the hate crimes legislation would affect Amazons decision.

I really dont think it should affect anything, he said. “Nor do I think we should tailor all of our legislation in hopes that a company will locate here.

NYPD: Hate crimes rise in 2017, led by anti-Semitic incidents

The uptick follows a national trend, in which activists and police are fielding more reports of hate crimes, which began last year. | AP Photo

There were 56 hate crimes reported in New York City as of Sunday, Feb. 12, up from just 31 incidents over the same time period last year, according to figures released today by the New York Police Department.

The increase was led by a rise in anti-Semitic crimes, which jumped from 13 to 28. No other category of hate crime was in double digits.

Story Continued Below

The uptick follows a national trend, in which activists and police are fielding more reports of hate crimes, which began last year. In early November, New York City police officials reported 314 hate crimes to that point in the year, surpassing the 309 that had been reported in all of 2015. (In one incident, an off-duty NYPD officer and Brooklyn native, who is Muslim, was attacked, along with her teenage son.)

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has said that uptick is linked to Donald Trumps campaign rhetoric. Police officials, who generally avoid wading into political debates, have said hate crimes ebb and flow in relation to high profile, national and international events though they stopped short of connecting this to any particular remark from a specific public figure.

Last week, de Blasio and police officials unveiled figures showing overall crime continued to decline in the first month of 2017. At the event, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce was asked about the uptick in hate crimes. He told reporters that has now leveled off.

Some critics cast doubt on local tallies of hate crimes, preferring the annual figures released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, since they apply one standard definition of a hate crime to incidents that take place throughout the nations various police districts.

Find out what’s happening in the world as it unfolds. “They’ve been everywhere — in schools, in places of business like Walmart, on the street,” SPLC President Richard Cohen said. Critics accused Trump of fostering xenophobia and Islamophobia during the divisive presidential campaign. Recent days have witnessed ugly episodes of racist or anti-Semitic, pro-Trump graffiti along with threats or attacks against Muslims. The President-elect said he was “so saddened” to hear about vitriol hurled by some of his supporters against minorities. “If it helps, I will say this, and I will say right to the cameras: Stop it,” Trump told CBS’ “60 Minutes.” Overall, reported hate crimes spiked 6%, but the number could be higher because many incidents go unreported, Lynch said. Here’s what some Americans are dealing with across the country: INTIMIDATION, VIOLENCE AFTER TRUMP WIN Mosques get letters calling for genocide A group calling itself “Americans for a Better Way” sent copies of a letter to at least five California mosques, calling Muslims “a vile and filthy people” and advocating genocide. “There’s a new sherriff [sic] in town — President Donald Trump,” reads the letter, which is addressed to “the Children of Satan.” “He is going to cleanse America and make it shine again,” it continues. “And, he’s going to start with you muslims [sic]. He’s going to do to you muslims [sic] what Hitler did to the jews [sic]. You muslims [sic] would be wise to pack your bags and get out of Dodge.” The San Jose Police Department called the letter a “hate-motivated” incident and said it will investigate. ‘Go home’ scrawled on car A Puerto Rican family’s car was vandalized on November 17, with the words “Trump” and “Go home” scratched into the car in West Springfield, Massachusetts, according to police and one of the victims, who spoke to CNN. Jorge Santiago, an Army veteran who has served two deployments overseas, noticed scratches in the family’s red sedan after he put his daughter on the bus to school, said his wife, Toni Santiago. He reported the vandalism to the West Springfield police soon afterward, she said. West Springfield Police Department Capt. Daniel Spaulding said detectives are following up and the investigation is ongoing. They have not determined whether it was a hate crime. The Santiagos are the only minority family on their street, Toni Santiago said. Their family supported Hillary Clinton during the election, but they didn’t have any signs on their lawn, Santiago said. They have one small Clinton sticker on their other car parked in their driveway closer to the house, which was not vandalized, Santiago said. “It is terrible. It is horrific, and still, in a way, I’m not surprised,” Santiago said. “Racism was always there, but I feel now with our current President having been so vocal in some of the things he says, people feel more comfortable showing that racism, and our family was a target of it.” Both Toni and Jorge are US citizens, Santiago said. Jorge was born in Puerto Rico and has lived in Massachusetts for many years, Santiago said. Toni grew up in Massachusetts and is a social worker in nearby Holyoke, Massachusetts, she said. They have three children, ages 2, 8 and 12. Toni posted a photo of the vandalism to Facebook and shared it with CNN. “My first reaction is we need to get this out. We need to do something,” Santiago said. “People think ‘it’s not going to happen in my town,’ or Massachusetts is a liberal state, but this is real hate, and it’s not OK.” Uber driver verbally assaulted A motorist in a white SUV unleashed this hateful rant last week at an Uber driver in New York City. The Uber driver, a Muslim and a US citizen originally from Morocco, captured the incident on video. It occurred in the Astoria section of Queens on November 17. The Uber driver told CNN the motorist cut him off, yelled at him and continued to follow him for a few blocks. When they both pulled up to a stop, the man asked the Uber driver to roll down his window. The motorist then spewed profane and racist abuse at the man. One quote: “Trump is president a******, so you can kiss your visa goodbye, scumbag. They’ll deport you soon, don’t worry, you f***ing terrorist.” The Uber driver, who came to the United States about seven years ago, asked CNN that his name not be used over concerns for his and his family’s safety. Chris Cody, the Uber driver’s next passenger, asked him how his day was going. The driver explained what had just happened and showed Cody his video, Cody told CNN. Cody asked if he could post it on social media and share it with others, he told CNN. Later that day, Cody put the video on his Facebook page, writing, “this is not a political post… this is a post about the disgusting mentality that some uneducated & xenophobic Americans somehow still subscribe to in the 21st century.” The video has gone viral. Vandalism at Adam Yauch Park The vandalism was discovered Friday afternoon, according to Shelton. A resident reported it to police, who are investigating the incident. New York City Councilman Brad Lander, who represents that part of Brooklyn, wrote on Twitter: “Yet more hatred & anti-Semitism from Trump supporters.” He also tweeted, “No place for hate. We will not be cowed.” On Twitter, the Beastie Boys asked fans to join local officials Sunday morning at a rally in the park. “Hate has no place in Brooklyn, NYC, or America,” the tweet said. “Join us … to stand against hate messages. Lander told CNN the graffiti had been painted over. Instagram images show hearts and flowers over the graffiti. The swastika discovered Friday in a Brooklyn park was the 13th reported in the city since Election Day, according to Robert Boyce, chief of detectives for the New York Police Department. Other swastikas have been found in a school in Manhattan and a housing development in Brooklyn, Boyce told reporters. The number is up from two in the same period of time in November last year, Boyce said. According to the New York police, the number of hate crimes in the city has increased 31.5% in the year to date from 2015 to 2016 — up from 250 to 328. Hate crimes targeting Muslims are up from 12 to 25, and hate crimes targeting Jews are up from 102 to 111, the police said. Boyce said the swastika at the Brooklyn playground was the only one that included Trump’s name. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters this week, “A lot of us are very concerned that a lot of divisive speech was used during the campaign by the President-elect, and we do not yet know what the impact of that will be on our country.” A note with obscenities A woman reported a frightening incident that happened while she was hiking at Mission Peak in Fremont, California. “I was surprised, I was taken aback by the ignorance,” Pancholy said on “CNN Tonight” on Friday evening. “It breaks my heart that violence is spewing everywhere,” Pancholy said. “It makes me wonder what our children will be facing, how will they cope with this? It’s a different America that they’re experiencing something that’s new to this generation.” A swastika, the words ‘Trump’ and ‘die’ painted on car In Denver, a transgender woman’s car was spray-painted early Wednesday morning with a swastika and the words “Trump” and “die,” among other derogatory terms. Amber Timmons, 43, noticed the swastika as she was heading to her car to leave for work. She didn’t make it to work that day. “You get shocked, you don’t believe it’s going to happen to you,” she said. Before the vandalism, she had the words “love trumps hate” written on her back window, and #notmypresident on the windows of the rear doors. And she intends to put those messages back on. “Me and a couple of really good friends got together and got the spray paint off,” said Timmons, who does not intend to press charges. Her message to the perpetrators? “That it’s OK,” she said. “It was done out of fear. That’s what hate is. Hate is fear. And we can fix that fear by love. It’s OK. I forgive them.” The Denver Police Department’s Hate Crimes Unit is investigating the incident as a possible act of criminal mischief, though there are no suspects at the moment. ‘Build the wall’ chanted at high school tournament Students from a small border town in northwest Texas say they were the target of ethnically charged slurs while warming up for a regional volleyball tournament. Amid the verbal abuse from the stands, apparently from supporters of the Archer City team, Fort Hancock coach Melissa Saldana called a timeout. “We’ve got to ignore what’s going on. We’ve got to stay focused and we’ve got to get tough,” Saldana said she told her players. The Fort Hancock team lost, but Saldana said they were still victorious. “My girls, they rose above and they handled themselves very well,” Saldana told KVIA. The superintendent of the Archer City Independent School District apologized for the students’ actions, but Fort Hancock’s schools chief is still upset. “What troubles us is that no game official, an official at the venue, even the officials at the game, school officials, nobody stood up to put an end to this,” Fort Hancock Independent School District Superintendent Jose Franco told the station. ‘Make America White Again,’ softball dugout reads New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered a joint investigation after someone painted a dugout wall in Wellsville, about 80 miles southeast of Buffalo. The message: A swastika, surrounded by the words, ‘Make America White Again.” The governor said both New York State Police and the State Division of Human Rights will investigate the alleged hate crime. “New York has zero tolerance for bigotry, fear and hatred, and those who seek to undermine the core values this state and nation were founded upon,” Cuomo said. ‘Heil Trump’ painted on church On Sunday morning, the Rev. Kelsey Hutto got the news that vandals had painted “Heil Trump,” an anti-gay slur and a swastika on the side of her church, Saint David’s Episcopal in Beanblossom, Indiana. She told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Thursday that she was at first sad, but believes that the church was targeted because it has always been inclusive to everyone. So, she said, she is taking comfort that whoever did this actually did this for the right reason, because the church has always been welcoming to everyone. “Doing the right thing is not always the popular thing.” In that spirit, the church has decided to leave the graffiti as is until November 30. “If we decide to look at these and be embarrassed, and consider them hateful and angry, and decide to cover them up, then we give power to the idea that hate is more powerful than love,” Hutto said. “And that’s not the case.” The Brown County Sheriff’s Department tells CNN it is investigating the incident. Investigators don’t currently have any suspects or leads, but they have shared their report with the state police department and are hoping someone in the community will come forward with information if they have it. Swastika, ‘Trump’ at New York campus Hours after Cuomo reported the Wellsville incident, the governor announced another alleged hate crime — this one at the State University of New York College at Genese. Someone spray-painted a swastika and the word “Trump” on a dorm building. “It is unacceptable that this is the second investigation that we have had to announce in the last several hours,” Cuomo said in a statement Saturday. “To any New Yorker who is scared, I want you to know that we have your back, that we will keep you safe, and that protecting your rights is what America stands for.” Muslim student threatened with lighter Police in Ann Arbor, Michigan, were investigating reports a man approached a Muslim student and threatened to set her on fire with a lighter unless she removed her hijab. “Our nation’s leaders, and particularly President-elect Donald Trump, need to speak out forcefully against the wave of anti-Muslim incidents sweeping the country after Tuesday’s election,” Executive Director Dawud Walid said. ‘Trump!’ written on Muslim prayer room door in New York At New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, students discovered Trump’s name written on the door to a prayer room for Muslims on Wednesday, school officials said. “Our campus is not immune to the bigotry that grips America,” the NYU Muslim Students Association said in a Facebook posting. School spokesman Kathleen Hamilton said the school has many immigrant students, with about 20% from abroad. “It’s a real melting pot here,” she said. “We all believe this very much, that the university is a place of free expression. It has to be safe to be so.” New York police are investigating. Graffiti in high school: ‘Trump,’ ‘Whites only,’ ‘White America’ Minnesota high school student Moses Karngbaye said he was terrified to see racist graffiti scrawled inside a bathroom. Someone had written “#Go back to Africa” and “Make America great again” on a toilet paper dispenser at Maple Grove Senior High School. The bathroom door was also covered with graffiti, including “Whites only,” “White America” and “Trump.” Karngbaye sent photos of the graffiti to his mother, Denise Karngbaye, who told WCCO she takes the attack personally. “I train my kids to respect everybody, regardless of their race, their ethnicity, their background,” she said.

Hate Crimes – ICAAD

Under the current Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), only 3% percent of all hate crimes are documented through the UCR Program. In 2012, the UCR reported 7,713 victims of hate crimes, whereas, the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) reported on average 259,700 hate crimes a year from 2007-2011. The 34 fold gap in documenting hate crimes reveals systemic flaws that result in the government failing to devote adequate resources: to train police officers in properly identifying bias indicators in crime, and to protect particularly vulnerable communities from hate crimes. According to NCVS, 65% of all hate crime victimizations are never reported to the police. Many of the reasons stem from mistrust of law enforcement to: investigate their claim thoroughly, prosecute the case as a hate crime, prevent retaliation, and not use their position to deport victims who lack legal immigrant status. Moreover, as there is no federal mandate to ensure recording of hate crimes by local law enforcement jurisdictions, reporting is voluntary. As a result of the combination of voluntary reporting with a failure to adequately train police officers to identify bias indicators in crime, there is little chance that the scope of violence directed at vulnerable communities will be understood. Ultimately, the culture of a police department can be a strong determinant on whether hate crimes documentation is seen by police officers as necessary to protect vulnerable communities or functions to support the agendas of gay and minority groups. ICAAD has advocated directly before the U.S. government on this issue and filed a number of reports to the UN Human Rights Committee and treaty body review committees on these concerns. The FBI UCR data masks a widespread problem of reporting hate crimes under the Hate Crimes Statistics Act (HCSA). Under the UCR, the FBI recorded 5,796 bias-motivated incidents which resulted in 7,164 victims in 2012.[1] Out of the 13,022 jurisdictions that participated in the program covering 248,809,710 people, 86.2% of agencies reported zero hate crimes.[2] This does not mean that they failed to report; rather, they affirmatively reported to the FBI that no hate crimes occurred in their jurisdiction.[3] Further, in 43 of those jurisdictions, the population exceeds 100,000 people.[4] Breaking this down, jurisdictions representing the equivalent of almost a third (76,542,952) of the U.S. population, reported zero hate crimes. How is this possible? The FBI, in fact, has never reported more than 10,000 hate crimes in any given year.[5] In contrast, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS)[6] 2013 Special Report on hate crime victimizations, relying on data from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), found that from 2007-2011 an average of 259,700 hate crime victimizations occurred each year.[7] In 2003-2009, the NCVS reported 195,000 hate crimes per year.[8] Clearly, the FBIs UCR data accounts for only a marginal number of bias-motivated crimes (3%) in the U.S. The variance between the UCR and NCVS represents a 34-fold gap. The NCVS has overcome some of the limitations of survey methodology through the use of representative sampling on a national level in a longitudinal or repeated cross-sectional design.[9] Furthermore, scholars have found that because the data is gathered from households where victimizations happened within the last six months, the NCVS data provides a more direct check on the true amount of crime, [and therefore] it is considered superior to the UCR for this purpose.[10] A big part of the data gap, as revealed by the NCVS, is that law enforcement was not notified about hate crime victimizations in 65% of the cases documented by NCVS.[11] The fact that two-thirds of victims dont report to the police suggests a larger systemic problem, which we address in the following section. However, even if we take into account that almost two-thirds of victims or bystanders never reported hate crimes to the police, it still leaves us with an average of over 90,000 hate crimes per year that were reported to law enforcement. Thus, the gap in underreporting by local agencies to the FBI is still greater than 10 fold.

Package bombings that killed 2 in state where hate crimes …

Three package bombings that killed two people and injured two others, all of them African-American or Hispanic, in Austin, Texas, may have been motivated by hate, authorities said. Killed were a 17-year-old boy, an orchestral musician and essay contest winner, and a 39-year-old father, both of them African-American. A 75-year-old Hispanic woman was critically injured and an African-American woman in her 40s was also wounded in the explosions. We are not ruling out hate, Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said in a press conference this week of the bombings that occurred in an 11-day span this month. In an interview with ABC News, Manley speculated on possible motivations for the crimes: Is this driven by an ideology? A philosophy? Is it driven by hate? If whoever planted the exploding packages is found to have been motivated by hate, the bombings will be part of a larger trend of an increase in hate crimes in the Texas capital. But experts suspect hate crimes overall are underreported in Texas, and federal and state data obtained by ABC News show very few suspects are ever convicted of hate crimes in the state. “We dont know for sure what the motivation is, not until the suspect is caught, questioned and prosecuted will we know that,” cautioned Ryan Lenz, an investigative writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, an anti-bigotry organization. But he noted that with all of the package bombings apparently aimed at minority residents, “There is the commonality of target.” Reports of hate crimes in Austin rose by 46 percent in 2016, but that is against the relatively small totals of 13 in 2015 and 19 in 2016, according to the FBIs annual report on hate crimes. The city has nearly 950,000 residents. Statewide in Texas — the nations second-most populous state with about 26.9 million residents — the total number of reported hate crimes in 2016 was just 178, according to the Texas Department of Public Safetys Texas Crime Report. That fits the trend of roughly 200 hate crimes getting reported each year to law enforcement agencies in Texas, according to publicly-available Texas Crime Reports analyzed by ABC News. But those numbers strike hate-crimes expert Brian Levin as suspiciously low for such a big state. Relative to its population, Texas reports fewer hate crimes than other big states, said Levin, a criminologist and attorney who directs the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. He noted that California — which with 38.8 million residents is the only state bigger than Texas — reported 931 hate crimes in 2016. New York, the nations fourth-most populous state with a population of 19.4 million reported 595 such crimes. Something is wrong when Texas, as a state, has fewer hate crimes than some of the major cities in the U.S., Levin said. Texas had a rate of 0.7 hate crimes reported for every 100,000 residents, far lower than the rate of 3.1 for every 100,000 residents in New York and 2.4 for every 100,000 in California, using 2017 Census population figures. Levin said law enforcement in Texas could do more to ensure officers recognize and investigate potential hate crimes. Indeed, Texas does not mandate training for police officers on how to investigate potential hate crimes. Gretchen Gribsby with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement confirmed. In addition, Texas geography with its high numbers of people living in rural areas may partially explain why there are relatively few reports of hate crimes in the state, said Lenz of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Less densely populated areas tend to report fewer hate crimes, Lenz said. But he said Texas isn’t alone in what he said is a general underreporting of such crimes. Hate crimes are wildly underreported, I mean, horrifically underreported, Lenz said. One reason may be that victims of hate crimes may be reluctant to report what happened, he said. Hate crimes likely arent being reported because victims fear law enforcement may not believe them or they may be embarrassed and not report to police at all for fear of putting a target on their home, Lenz said. Even among the relatively small number of incidents reported to police as hate crimes in Texas, a yet smaller number results in cases brought to court. Since 2001, when Texas enacted its current hate-crime law, only in 26 instances was a hate-crime finding requested of the courts, according to the Texas Office of Court Administration. And in only 23 of those instances did a judge or jury confirm them as hate crimes, according to Megan LaVoie of the Texas Office of Court Administration said. So, while roughly 200 hate crimes are reported by Texas law enforcement agencies each year, over a 17-year period only 23 were confirmed by the courts as alleged hate crimes. Experts believe that may be because the state’s hate-crime law — called the Byrd Statute after James Byrd Jr., an African-American man who was dragged to his death behind a pickup truck by white supremacists in 1998 — has strict limits. The law, for example, doesn’t allow for perpetrators to be found guilty of a hate crime on top of any other crime they committed. It also only allows judges or juries to impose harsher sentences for the hate crime if a prosecutor can prove a suspect was motivated by hate. Proving motivation can be nearly impossible, Lenz said. Knowing the motivation of an assailant and being able to convince a jury that that motivation was the primary motivation in committing that crime is a pretty high hurdle for prosecutors, Lenz said. A criminal law professor in Texas agreed. Its hard enough to prove some crimes beyond a reasonable doubt without adding another element like motive, said Brian Serr, professor of criminal law and procedure at Baylor University. Prosecutors have to decide, Should I take on trying to prove this suspect committed a hate crime when Im already putting a bad guy in jail for the actual crime committed? Experts interviewed by ABC News also said few hate crimes may be tried in court simply because prosecutors may not want to try to prove hate was the suspects motive when it is easier to show simply that the suspect is guilty of the crime committed, as Lenz said. That doesnt mean perpetrators of hate crimes are walking free in Texas, Serr said. Its not like a hate criminal is going to get off the hook if they arent prosecuted for a hate crime, he said. Hes getting the punishment he deserves without prosecutors having to go thru the process of proving motive. The first package explosion occurred March 2, killing Anthony Stephan House, a 39-year-old father. Then two other packages blew up on March 12, one of them killing 17-year old Draylen Mason, a talented bass player who was set to enroll at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas for the next year. Investigators believe that the trio of bombs displayed a level of sophistication, indicating that the bomb-maker or bomb-makers were highly skilled. The devices were set up to be detonated by motion like shaking or jostling, which is why they exploded when they were picked up. They also had some sort of safety switch, which enabled the bomber to move the devices without blowing themselves up, the sources briefed on the investigation told ABC News.

Indiana lawmakers kill hate crimes bill again – indystar.com

Central Indiana Alliance Against Hate holds Hate Crime Law Rally at Indiana Statehouse Matt Kryger/IndyStar Supporters for hate crime legislation hold signs for love, not hate, during a rally of supporters for a hate crime law, on Organization Day at the Indiana Statehouse, Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017.(Photo: Kelly Wilkinson/IndyStar)Buy Photo Senate Republicans pulled the plug Tuesday on a hate crimes bill, leaving Indiana as one of only five states without such a law. Senate leader David Long said Republicans could not reach agreement about Senate Bill 418, which would have allowed judges to impose tougher sentences for crimes motivated by factors such as race, religion, sex, gender identityand sexual orientation. This is very disappointing, said Rajesh Patnaik, whose sign shop in northwest Indianapolis was vandalized with anti-Hindu graffiti in September. I was hoping there was momentum this time. The decision comes despite a rise in reported hate crimes in Indiana and five months after a violent white nationalist rally last summer in Charlottesville, Va. We could not reach consensus, said Sen. Susan Glick, R-LaGrange, who carried the legislation. Thats why there were so many amendments offered, and thats why we pulled it back.” Exploited: Who buys a child for sex? Otherwise ordinary men Sign up: IndyStar’s new politics newsletter Long said he believes there is growing public acceptance for the legislation and he expects lawmakers to take it up again in 2019. But the measure is dead for this year, he said. I think time will change some peoples opinions in our caucus, or well have different members in there in the future, he said. Its important not to misunderstand what happened today. Its not for a lack of caring or belief that you shouldnt do it. Its just how you do it and the language you use. A recent poll indicated that nearly two-thirds of Hoosiers favor a hate crimes law. But such measures have consistently failed in recent years at the General Assembly amid fierce opposition from social conservatives, who argue hate crime laws create special protected classes that treat victims of similar crimes differently. For example, prominent Republican attorney Jim Bopp argued last week that the legislation only adds stiffer penalties for crimes committed against people deemed worthy by liberals and the business community. The legislation would leave out Trump supporters who might be physically attacked solely for their political beliefs, he said. But Glick, the bills author, countered that characteristics such as race, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation apply to everyone equally. The bill was scheduled for a vote Tuesday in the Senate Corrections and Criminal Law Committee, but Chairman Mike Young decided not to hold a vote after Republicans failed to reach consensus during a private caucus meeting Monday. Young said there had been an avalanche of amendments to the bill. They included changes that supporters considered detrimental. One would have stripped gender identity from the bill, and another would have allowed longer sentences based on any characteristic, belief, practice or association. The difficulty is trying to find the language we can agree upon, Young said. Autoplay Show Thumbnails Show Captions Conservatives have argued the legislation is unnecessary because the Indiana Supreme Court ruled in 2003 that judges can increase sentences for racially motivated crimes, even though that factor is not listed in Indianas list of aggravating circumstances. But Glick and others, including Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry, argue that the bill would encourage judges to consider such factors. I think we can be more emphatic, Glick said. Similar legislation has failed to advance for at least three years. A hate crimes bill died last year on the same day the Jewish Community Center of Indianapolisreceived bomb threats. The year before thatit failed to advance despite a record 69 hate crimes being reported to the state. The measure also failed in 2015as Indiana was in an uproar over religious freedom and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. Supporters had hoped for a different outcome this year after a Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in August left one woman dead. That event was heavily promoted by the Indiana-based leader of a racist white nationalist group. A second Indiana man was arrested for assault and battery during the rally. Supporters also hoped that Amazons interest in Indianapolis as one of 20 finalists for the online retailers second headquarters might help. The company has cited support for diversity as one of the factors it will consider in choosing a location. Long dismissed concerns that the demise of the hate crimes legislation would affect Amazons decision. I really dont think it should affect anything, he said. “Nor do I think we should tailor all of our legislation in hopes that a company will locate here.

NYPD: Hate crimes rise in 2017, led by anti-Semitic incidents

The uptick follows a national trend, in which activists and police are fielding more reports of hate crimes, which began last year. | AP Photo There were 56 hate crimes reported in New York City as of Sunday, Feb. 12, up from just 31 incidents over the same time period last year, according to figures released today by the New York Police Department. The increase was led by a rise in anti-Semitic crimes, which jumped from 13 to 28. No other category of hate crime was in double digits. Story Continued Below The uptick follows a national trend, in which activists and police are fielding more reports of hate crimes, which began last year. In early November, New York City police officials reported 314 hate crimes to that point in the year, surpassing the 309 that had been reported in all of 2015. (In one incident, an off-duty NYPD officer and Brooklyn native, who is Muslim, was attacked, along with her teenage son.) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has said that uptick is linked to Donald Trumps campaign rhetoric. Police officials, who generally avoid wading into political debates, have said hate crimes ebb and flow in relation to high profile, national and international events though they stopped short of connecting this to any particular remark from a specific public figure. Last week, de Blasio and police officials unveiled figures showing overall crime continued to decline in the first month of 2017. At the event, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce was asked about the uptick in hate crimes. He told reporters that has now leveled off. Some critics cast doubt on local tallies of hate crimes, preferring the annual figures released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, since they apply one standard definition of a hate crime to incidents that take place throughout the nations various police districts.
