*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

A New Mexico man has been sentenced to a year in prison after threatening to kill an elected Texas official.

The man left a voicemail for a Texas congresswoman in which he threatened to shoot her in the face and claimed that he was part of a movement to eradicate transgender people in government. The defendant admitted he threatened her because he mistakenly believed she was transgender.
