The majority of hate crimes took place in Manhttan.
NYC saw a 96% rise in hate crimes in 2021 compared to 2020.
Progressive Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg promised to expand the hate crimes division to address all the hate in the city. However, he also promised to go soft on other crimes.
Asian hate crimes went up by 343%. The city reported 30 in 2020 but had 133 in 2021.
From Fox News:
On Friday, Bragg called anti-Asian hate “intolerable” and added, “We will not stand for it.”
“Our [Asian American and Pacific Islander] brothers and sisters have been spit upon, coughed at, told to go back home,” he said. “In my office we are deepening our capacity.”
He continued: “We’re expanding our hate crimes unit so that we can give these cases the resources that they deserve.”]
The Hispanic hate crimes went up by 700%. They only had one in 2020 and eight in 2021.
But once again the anti-Semitic hate crimes seem to get pushed into the background. The change from 2020 to 2021 isn’t as flashy but look at how many occurred those two years.
I just wish they would treat all hate crimes equally. Anti-Semitic crimes in NYC have remained in the hundreds.
Remember, these stats cover all of NYC. The last column shows anti-Semitic hate crimes made up 38% of all the hate crimes covered by the NYPD in 2021.
Blagg has his hands full because Manhattan had the bulk of hate crimes:
Staten Is. 17
