Federal Bureau of Investigation report for 2016 sees hate crimes on the rise

In a statement addressing the report Monday, the Anti-Defamation League focused on the overall increase in reported hate crimes.

National hate crime statistics are flawed and incomplete.

In neighboring Minnesota, hate crimes rose from 109 to 119 during the same period. The community has been a victim of hate crimes as they are usually mistaken as Arabs due to their turbans.

County-specific info is a bit muddy in the FBI's databases, but within Miami-Dade County, Miami Beach Police reported a whopping 12 anti-LGBTQ crimes, which made up more than a third of the state's anti-gay attacks.

The FBI said that there were 76 hate crime offenses reported in 2016 related to disability.

Seven of these hate crimes involved racial bias; three, religious bigotry; and two, because of a person's sexual orientation.

The analysts estimated EPS for the higher end at 0 and lower end at -0.09 while the year ago reported earnings per share was 0. Also, there are 0 buy, 0 sell and 0 strong sell ratings, collectively assigning a 2.67 average brokerage recommendation.

Twenty-one percent of hate crimes in 2016 were motivated by religion. HRC continues to press for improved reporting, passage of state laws that protect LGBTQ individuals from hate crimes, and expanded education and training initiatives. Anti-white bias was the next largest category, making up 20.7 percent.

African-Americans were far and away the main target of hate crimes in general, targeted in 1,739 incidents, accounting for more than half of racially motivated hate crimes and about 28 percent of the total. Fifty-four percent of these incidents were anti-Jewish, and 25 percent were anti-Muslim.

The FBI says it collects this information so as to better understand and combat hate crimes across the nation.

The FBI and the justice department did not make that connection.

In addition to the above categories, the 2016 Federal Bureau of Investigation report also included statistics for anti-Arab (51) anti-Hispanic or Latino (344) and anti-other race/ethnicity/ancestry (223) crimes.

Of the single-bias incidents, of which there were 6,063, 1,076 (17.7%) were motivated by sexual orientation, a 2% increase from 2015. Crimes were also committed against victims due to their religion or sexual orientation. The number of crimes against Jewish and Muslim citizens increased a year ago (just as Jewish and Muslim civil rights organizations warned would happen).
