NYPD Links Hate Crimes Increase to 2016 Presidential Campaign - Bloomberg: "Hate crimes in New York City, particularly against Jews, have spiked in the past 100 days, a trend police officials say is probably connected to ethnic bias and xenophobia that emerged during the 2016 election campaign.
Between the Nov. 8 election and Feb. 19, the New York Police Department received 143 hate-crime complaints, 42 percent more than during the same period a year earlier. Seventy-two of the post-election offenses targeted Jews, compared with 39 a year earlier, according to data provided by the department. " 'via Blog this'
