slides: 10 Oregon Cities and Towns with the Most Hate Crimes in 2014

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation released its 2014 hate crime statistics, breaking down data on a state by state -and community- basis. According to the data, the state of Oregon had the 33rd most hate crimes in the country.

According to the FBI data, in 2013, 1,826 law enforcement agencies reported 5,479 hate crime incidents involving 6,418 offenses. This total is down from 2013, when 5,928 hate crimes were reported. The FBI states, "the victim of a hate crime can be an individual, a business, an institution, or society as a whole. Law enforcement can indicate the number of individual victims, the number of victims 18 years of age and older, and the number of victims under the age of 18."

According to the Anti-Defamation League hate crimes in the United States “really are a problem.”

“Hate crimes are disturbingly prevalent,” The Anti-Defamation League said. “According to the most recent data available from the FBI, there was almost one hate crime in America in every hour of every day in 2007 – a total of more than 7,600 reported bias-motivated incidents. In addition, along with an increase in harsh, hateful rhetoric against Hispanics, immigrants and those who look like immigrants in recent months, there have been several very high-profile hate crimes against Hispanics recently, including several murders. Unfortunately, in the aftermath of the election of the first African-American President, a deep economic and housing crisis, and a broken immigration system, we have seen a disturbing increase in ideologically-motivated violence against Jews and others. Sadly, hate crimes really are a problem.”

10 cities and towns in Oregon reported hate crimes to the FBI last year. Springfield had the most reported hate crimes with six. Sutherlin had the most hate crimes per capita.
