California reported 1,094 incidents of hate crimes in 2017, making the state America’s Hate Crime Capital with over 500 more reported incidents than distant second place New York.
According to 2017 hate crime data, released earlier today by the FBI, the state of California reported almost 1,100 hate crimes in 2017, accounting for over 15 percent of the hate crimes committed in the country for the reporting period. New York had the second highest number of hate crimes at 552, with Washington placing in third at 510.
In its press release, the FBI explains that 7,175 criminal incidents classified as hate crimes were recorded in 2017. These are then broken down into categories, including vandalism, burglary, arson, intimidation, assault, rape, murder, and human trafficking.
Comparing by population, the states with the largest reporting area are not necessarily the states with the most hate crimes. While California has the largest reporting area with over 39 million Americans and 1,094 hate crimes, conservative Texas had only 190 with almost 30 million Americans covered in the reporting area.
While some Democrat-leaning states seem to have a higher number of hate crimes, higher numbers of hate crimes do not seem to be tied to political leanings. Democrat states California, New York, Washington, Massachusetts, and New Jersey all reported over 300 hate crimes, as did Republican-leaning Kentucky, Michigan, and Ohio.
The states with the lowest number of reported hate crimes were New Mexico and Arkansas with 7, Nevada with 5, Alaska and Wyoming with 4, and Mississippi with 1.
Only when considering the population in each reporting area does California lose its top position, surrendering it to nearby Washington, which has the highest number hate crimes reported per capita. By every other metric, the FBI’s 2017 Hate Crime Statistics paint California as America’s Hate Crime Capital.
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
