Washington – 6,000 Hate Crime Incidents, Same as 2010


Washington – The FBI says the level of hate crime reported by police in the United States remained about the same in 2010 compared with the previous year.

The bureau says 6,628 hate crime incidents were reported to the FBI by law enforcement agencies around the country, compared with 6,604 incidents reported in 2009.

The year-to-year numbers on hate crime were constant while the number of violent crimes reported to the FBI dropped 6 percent in 2010, marking the fourth consecutive year-to-year decline.

One possible reason the hate crime totals did not show a decline like overall violent crime is that the 2010 hate crime data came from law enforcement agencies covering a slightly larger percentage of the U.S. population compared with the year before.

  1. It may be the same level… but that doesn’t make me feel any better! What a mess we’ve become, to have yet so many incidents of hate crimes in this country AGAIN, and in the year 2011! When are we going to grow up as a civilization?!?! And don’t we need to realize more, that this kind of baseless hatred, is just one of the (many) reasons the 3rd Temple isn’t getting built in our generation?? The whole thing is very sad to me…
