Hate Crimes: then and now 1939-1945 was a time where many hate crimes were committed. These hate crimes were against almost anyone, but mainly Jews. Many of them still happen today, although they do not show. Hate crimes today are worse than they were in 1939, although they are mainly hidden from sight, so the victims have go through everything alone. For years there has been an increase in hate crimes. Since 2016, the number has increased by 20%. That might not seem like a lot, but that is just in a year, a few months even.

South Carolina’s hands seem to be filled with a surplus of judgment and resentment for how things are run in varying parts of the country; but yet neglect the issues that hit home. While South Carolina legislation is busy worrying about letting “murderers, rapists, and criminals” through our borders, they are blind to the murderers, rapists, and criminals in our own state. Two counties in South Carolina are included in the top 30 dangerous areas in America along with holding the ranking of seventh in America’s most criminal state which has gradually climbed the rank since 2012. Causation for such a high crime rate stems from an equally as terrifying statistic. Almost 19% of South Carolina citizens live under the poverty line, nearly 1 in
The Klu Klux Klan, one of the most recognised hate groups in US history, was founded in 1865. They were under the impression that people of color were less valuable than white people, some even believing that they weren't human. Something people don’t realize is that groups like that are still around today, and just as active as ever. Hate groups, and just random unorganised hate crimes are just as real as me and you, and they are still an active threat. Hate Crime is relevant, and as a society, we should be doing our best to snuff out the flames of prejudice and resentment that burn in the hearts of anyone willing to participate in such unjust behavior. This kind of activity is not only hurtful emotionally, but sometimes, it turns to violence. Innocent people getting picked off the street simply because of their beliefs, who they love, or the color of their skin. This is something that nobody should stand for, especially now, in this constantly progressing world. All in all, Hate Crimes are a real problem, and in order to stop injustice such as this, we need to work together as human beings to accept people, regardless of who they are.
Chapter 7 pertains to victims of violence and who they are. I was informed about the legal rights of violent crime victims, such as the general list of victim rights that stemmed from the Crime Victims Assistance Act of 1988. I also learned about the different types of hate crimes and the consequences of hate crime victimization. Another point touched on in this chapter was crimes against the homeless and how environmental degradation is an act of violence. The section of this chapter that interested me the most was learning about the victims of violent sexual assault. Unfortunately the notion of victim blame seemed to be a recurring theme in this chapter and was a main point made when learning about the myths of rape against women.
Recent data has shown an increase in the number of hate crimes being committed within the United States. Hate groups also are mobilizing. This poses a problem for Americans. The Southern Poverty Law Center provides a solution for this by monitoring hate groups and gathering information about them. To continue doing this, they need donations to keep operating but multiple barriers exist for individuals to contribute funds.
After the three young Caucasians male was arrested for assaulting and murder Mr. Anderson in 2009, there has been recent relative new on other racial hate crimes in different areas of the United States. In Charleston, South Carolina at Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on June 17, 2015, Dylan Roof, 21 sat in the church bible study for nearly an hour and open fires. The suspect, Dylan Roof shot and killed nine innocent people that night, six women and three men. Before the shooting reporters announced that Dylan uploaded a snap chat video in a small prayer group, and in the footage there was no sign that manslaughter was about to occur. It was at the end of the bible study when Dylan started to shoot each individual; a witness told
In the article Hate Crimes Now Directed at L.G.B.T. People the Most, Haeyoun Park brings up the topic of the worsening of LGBT hate crimes. The author exhibits a liberal bias, he shows this by bringing to the reader's attention to the fact that republican officials are denying that the Orlando Pulse Massacre had anything to do with LGBT individuals or that Pulse was even an LGBT club. Park uses statistics from multiple studies, and cites people who have contributed to this research, like Gregory M. Herek, a psychology professor from UC Davis, and Roger Coggan, the director of legal services at the LA LGBT Center. Following his statistics, Park uses numerous examples of different hate crimes from across the nation to support his claim. He uses
Hate crimes are a violation of human rights and go against many laws.Additionally, “Upon sentencing for an offense, the provisions of Section 718.2 of the Criminal Code call for an increased sentence when hate is determined to be an aggravating circumstance” (R.S.C., 1985, c. C-46). To stop the progression of hatred and stop others from being mistreated hate crimes must be reported to the authorities. The law enforcement agency must know about any violence or hatred of homosexuality and bullying against anyone because of race, beliefs, or any type of issue of the sort so that they can reply appropriately. If you are a victim of hate crime or hate-motivated bullying no matter how simply you might feel it is it should be reported. There are laws that are in place to fight against these type of crimes.

This research is important to criminal justice because it is effecting a lot of people and there were a lot of increasing of hate crime happening to a lot of people.
In November of 2015, the Federal Bureau of Investigations published a statistics report on hate crimes that was based on incidents that occurred the previous year. The data showed that there was about a ten percent decline of incidents documented since the prior year. But not all of the groups correlated with this report saw decreases in hate crimes. Occurrences involving Muslims have increased in the last several years after shifting for a decade following the wake of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. Prejudgment towards Muslims isn’t something that is new though, according to hate crime data and surveys. About fifty percent of U.S. Catholics, Jews, Protestants, Mormons, and Muslims believed that most Americans were prejudiced toward Muslim Americans in a 2010 Gallup survey. The survey also uncovered that Muslims were more likely to experience religious discrimination than any other religious group. A matter of fact Muslim Americans are five times more likely to be a victim of a hate crime today than before 9/11 according to the FBI. But not all people believe that Muslim discrimination is such a massive problem that impacts many people’s lives. Florida senator and U.S. presidential candidate Marco Rubio stated in an interview, “Where is there widespread evidence that we have a problem in America with discrimination against Muslims?” which is rather amusing because if Mr. Rubio were to have done a quick internet search he would have

How horrible to live in a world full of hate where people talk about our history of horrors such as slavery and the holocaust . How hypocritical of us to hate something we don't understand. We believe our past occurred because people were to ignorant and selfish to make a difference but here we are in the present and nothing's changed the past has only repeated itself.

In 1939, WWII began when Adolf Hitler invaded Poland, causing 6 million Jewish people to fear for their lives. First,all citizens,German and Jew alike had to complete a Cencus about their race religion and ancestry. Second,all people had to carry ID cards,and the Jewish people had to wear the Star of David. Third,Germany passed the Nuremberg Race laws,which took away all Jewish rights,even to the point where they were put into ghettos. Fourth,the Jewish people were taken to concentration camps. The Nazi’s were not smart on taking the Jewish people away. The Holocaust affected thousands of people by creating a sense of fear do to the creation of the Gestapo,by causing terror for the Jewish people,and by destroying the life of Bruno and his family.
I would first like to say that you did a great job on this week’s discussion question concerning the use of hate crimes in criminal cases. I am like you when growing up in the south as a person that is a member of the black community you hear of and even see criminal activity that is driven by racial hate. The victims that are affected by this type of crime has been subjected to a kind of offenses that is not only a threat to their fiscal being but also that of their mental health being as well. I am like you I think that from a constitutional viewpoint of these types of cases the defendant must be given his rights given to him. Allowing the jury to determine if the elements in the case support the punishment as a hate crime as
