Hate crimes are evil actions perpetrated on others because of prejudice. They have been with us throughout human history.  Recently they are become politically incorrect as well as evil. This has led to the zealous increase in the collection of such crime statistics.

Listed below are the Hate Crime statistics for 2009 collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. This is the program through which statistics are collected from police forces from all over the country. It is from these reports that we get our national crime statistics for murders, robberies, etc..

As some of you know, I love statistics, and these crime statistics make interesting reading.  it is possible to make some guesses as to what they mean, but it is only a guess.  Have fun finding your “favorite” statistic.
