 *2021 was the first year that the annual hate crimes statistics were reported entirely through the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS).  As a result of the shift to NIBRS-only data collection, law enforcement agency participation in submitting all crime statistics, including hate crimes, fell significantly from 2020 to 2021.

Case Examples

An Anchorage man was sentenced today to 18 months in prison for hate-motivated vandalism and a drug trafficking offense.

In May 2021, the defendant placed stickers with a swastika and the text “WE ARE EVERYWHERE” at eight locations around Anchorage, including the Alaska Jewish Museum, the University of Alaska Anchorage campus, and a site associated with the LGBTQI+ community. In September, he returned to the Alaska Jewish Museum, where he placed another sticker and carved a swastika into the door.

During the investigation, investigators discovered that the defendant used social media to traffic drugs. Federal agents searched the defendant’s residence and recovered drugs, firearms, and Nazi-inspired imagery, including a box of swastika stickers.

Press Release:

An Alaska defendant pled guilty to making threats to a synagogue and attempting to obstruct the free exercise of religious beliefs.

On November 1, 2019, the defendant called a Los Angeles area synagogue and left a voice message stating that they were going to kill the synagogue’s congregants. In their message, the defendant repeatedly used slurs referring to people of Jewish faith. The defendant admitted to committing this act with the intent to obstruct the synagogue’s congregants from enjoying the free exercise of their religious beliefs.

The defendant is scheduled to be sentenced on August 23, 2021.
