FBI Statistics Show Hate Crimes Rise in Minnesota in 2016

FBI: Hate Crimes Increased by 4.6 Percent in 2016 FBI data: Hate crimes overall climb 4.6 percent

There were eight reports of religion motivated hate crimes past year but zero reports of gender motivated hate crimes.

About 57 percent of the 6,121 incidents reported to law enforcement were motivated by race or ethnicity, with the half of race-related crimes motivated by anti-black bias.

According to the agency's annual Hate Crime Statistics released Monday, 39 hate crimes were reported in the state in 2016, down five from 2015.

More than half of those against people were assault cases, while almost 45 percent were crimes of intimidation.

The rise marked the first time since 2004 that hate crime in the United States has increased two years in a row.

In Ogden there were 4 reports of hate crimes against someone's sexual orientation; in all there were nine reports of sexual orientation hate crimes.

In an interview with KTVU on Monday, Anti-Defamation League regional director Seth Brysk said that his organization noticed a "sharp increase" of hate during the presidential debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump kicked off previous year.

The bureau has been tracking hate crime data since 1992.

The numbers likely reflect an uptick recorded by civil rights groups in harassment and vandalism targeting Muslims, Jews, blacks and others amid the presidential campaign, which included sharp rhetoric from Trump and others against immigrants, especially Muslims. In Maryland, such crimes declined from 43 in 2015 to 37 in 2016. Not all departments use the same system, Cobb said.

Hate crimes in the United States increased by nearly five percent in 2016, when the country registered 6,121 acts of this type, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced today.

"No person should have to fear being violently attacked because of who they are, what they believe, of how they worship", US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement.
