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.

SCOTUS Denies House Dems, Hands Trump Another Victory in Battle Against Fake Russia Probe

Published

Democrats in the House of Representatives had their request to see previously unreleased documents from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into wither there was collaboration between Russia and the Trump administration  denied Wednesday by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Originally in 2019 the House Democrats requested the sealed documentations from the Mueller probe, which includes grand jury testimony, as they prepared for the impeachment hearings and proceedings against President Trump. The Democrats have suggested that the grand jury materials could reveal new misconduct that could potentially form the basis of new articles of impeachment.In March of this year the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit agreed with the the Democrat lead House Judiciary Committee and called for the release of the documents.

In response to the demand both the White House and the Department of Justice asked the Supreme Court to block access to the documentation.

In a brief to the Supreme Court, Solicitor General Noel Francisco alleged that the Democrat majority Congress had no need to see the documents since President Trump had already been impeached and acquitted. Francisco also noted that no indication had been provided by the House Judiciary Committee or the House of Representatives that another impeachment would be happening in the future.

The high court’s action will keep the documents out of congressional hands at least until the case is resolved, which is not likely to happen before 2021. The delay is a victory for President Trump, who also is mounting a court fight against congressional efforts to obtain his banking and other financial records. Those cases are expected to be decided in the coming days or weeks.
