Some people have different views of what they believe is hate crime. Hate crime can be a number of different things and can have many things classified as such. Checking my yahoo mail yesterday I saw the main article as
This is a senseless act of violence that is a shame to see. This is something I classify with as a hate crime. The hardest part of the article to read was, “Initially it was believed the gang were armed robbers but it soon became clear the attackers were targeting non-Muslims.The gunmen told Muslims to stand up and leave. They were safe, and non-Muslims would be targeted.”
Innocent children and families have been scarred. If I saw something like this happen, I would never step foot in or near a mall ever again. What is a step we can take to start reducing hate crimes? Is there even a way to reduce them?
