HATE  CRIMES;


If you or someone you know, has been the victim of what you believe to be a Hate Crime, you no longer have to rely on local law enforcement to investigate and report  it as such. Since 2011, individuals can directly contact the FBI and request that they investigate the incident, bypassing local police.They will then refer it to the Justice Department, if it warrants prosecution as a Federal Hate Crime.
Beginning in 2013, the FBI will be keeping separate statistics on transgender related Hate Crimes.
