ABSTRACT

Hate Crimes: National Database Identifies Traits and Motivations Marking Distinct Pathways of People Who Commit Bias-Based Offenses   [open pdf - 331KB]

From the Document: "Individuals who commit hate crimes do so out of a variety of bias-based motivations, and the demographic and other characteristics of those individuals can vary widely depending on the type of hate crime committed. A recent study of unprecedented scope on what drives people who perpetrate hate crimes found that, in light of those diverse motivations and traits, the tools needed to monitor and rehabilitate those individuals must be flexible and capable of addressing risks in heterogeneous populations. [...] The purpose of this study by START [National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism] was to enhance understanding of characteristics of hate crime, also known as bias crime, in the United States."
