FBI data shows hate crimes appeared to drop in Wisconsin FBI statistics show hate crimes rise in Minnesota in 2016

Eighteen hate crimes were reported in South Dakota past year, with the bulk of victims targeted for their race or ethnicity or sexual orientation.

Many civil rights groups reported a spike in hate crimes immediately after President Donald Trump's election in 2016 and the increase in the FBI's official numbers is similar to some of those estimates but lower than the most extreme claims.

The hate crimes recorded previous year included nine murders and 24 rapes, the report said.

Of 111 hate-crimes reported by law enforcement agencies in IL, 21 were on the basis of sexual orientation and three were on the basis of gender identity. There were two crimes motivated by a victim's religion and two by a victim's gender identity.

Most hate crimes, about 27 percent, happened at residences.

More than half of the crimes committed based on race, ethnicity or ancestry bias were motivated by anti-black sentiments, according to the report. In all, nine murders and 24 rapes were reported as hate crimes.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group, said in a statement that the new Federal Bureau of Investigation hate crime report shows the need for all Americans to stand up to increasing bigotry nationwide. Of the 5,770 known offenders, 46 percent were white, and 26 percent were African-American.

A bill that would've introduced a hate crime law in IN died in the legislature on the same day that the Indianapolis Jewish Community Center received a bomb threat.

The yearly report is the most comprehensive accounting of hate crimes in the U.S. But authorities warn it's incomplete, partly because it's based on voluntary reporting by police agencies.

"No person should have to fear being violently attacked because of who they are, what they believe, or how they worship", Sessions said. Anti-white bias was the next largest category, making up 20.7 percent.

There were 1,076 incidents involving lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people, with nearly two-thirds of those targeting gay men.

"In reality, a hate crime must first involve an underlying criminal act which can be prosecuted", Curry said.

Of the 7,615 overall hate crime victims in 2016, 4,720 of them were against people.
