Department of Justice (CRT): Hate Crimes Documentation

Hate Crimes Documentation

The 2010 FBI Hate Crime Statistics reveal that out of 6,624 single-bias incidents, 20% were motivated by religious bias. What is both significant and shocking about this number is that it represents the highest percentage of religiously motivated hate crimes ever recorded by the FBI, since it began documenting hate crimes statistics, nationwide, in 1992. In comparison, in 2001 and 2002, hate crimes motivated by religious bias were at 18.8% and 19.1% respectively. More concerning, a decade after 9/11, anti-Muslim hate crimes jumped almost 50% from 2009 to 2010 and anti-Jewish bias still represents the majority of hate crimes motivated by religious bias. And finally, though community organizations have documented over 700 incidents of hate crimes against Sikhs since 9/11, there is no anti-Sikh hate crimes code in the Uniform Crime Reporting 1-699 Form.
