Hate crimes across New York state jumped 14 percent in 2009, led by an increase in attacks on Jews and Jewish institutions, state records released yesterday show.

There were 683 hate crimes reported to police authorities across the state in 2009 compared with 599 in 2008, according to a report released by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services.

In New York City, reported hate crimes rose 6 percent, from 259 to 275. The city accounted for 40 percent of all hate crimes in the state last year.

    There were 683 hate crimes reported to police authorities

    REPORTED? So they’re immediately guilty?

    This is a load of BS. BS from 2009 in fact.

    The only friends Isrealis have are devote Christians and that is the one group of people most Jews sadly hate, its ironic isnt it ?

    I have a problem with the way the media report on so called hate crimes, they never tell us which race committed the hate crime? for example they report hate crime against homosexuals were up this year, but they don’t break down the race of the people who attacked gay or Jews or anyone else.

    I GUESS WHEN PEOPLE READ ABOUT “HATE CRIMES” THEY’RE SUPPOSE TO ASSUME ITS DONE BY WHITES ? WHEN ITS NOT TRUE, I BET MOST OF THIS SO CALLED HATE CRIMES INVOLVE OTHER RACIAL GROUPS AGAINST EACH OTHER. THATS WHY THEY DONT TELL US THE RACE OF THE PERPERTORS..BECAUSE ITS THE OPPOSE OF WHAT THEY WANT US TO BELIEVE.

      Yes, they love getting punched in the face again and again. Kind of makes you wonder about their ability to think things through.
