Harboring Hate


Hate crimes have risen for four straight years and are at a ten year high. This is evident even when local police departments fail to report incidents as hate. Nevertheless, violent crimes motivated by hate and bigotry, in the service of white supremacy, are equally important to track. These are just some of the individuals facing criminal issues where bias was reported in their alleged deeds.
