Spreading the Gospel a Hate Crime

Definition
A hate crime, also known as a bias crime, is a criminal offense committed against a person, property, or society that is motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or ethnicity/national origin.

Crimes: Trespassing, assault, intimidation, disturbing the peace.

Taking a legal class right now and I just find this stuff fascinating.
