Inspired To Hate

Inspired To Hate
At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.”

Different states define hate crimes in diverse ways, but in general, all states use this definition as a general and basic guide: a hate crime is a crime that involves threats, harassment and physical harm to an individual or group, and a prejudice against race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation or disability of a person. In each crime, the state can define a hate crime in any way it believes appropriate.

Hate crimes against Latinos have been on the rise for some time. Statistics published annually by the FBI have found that anti-Latino crimes rose by 35 percent between 2003 and 2006. And 2013 Hate Crime Statistics report found that 52.6 percent of 821 Latino victims were targeted because of anti-Hispanic or anti-Latino bias.

A pair of siblings in Boston, Massachusetts attacked a 58-year-old homeless Latino man, whose name is Guillermo Rodríguez, originally from the center of Mexico, because one brother was “inspired in part” by 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Rodriguez was found by the police covered in urine, with his nose broken and chest and arms battered. He told the police that “he was awakened by two men urinating on his face.” He said they ripped away his blankets and sleeping bag, hit him in the face and the head, and punched him several times.

Rodriguez is in fair condition, though he has a broken nose and multiple bruises and his head and torso.

Scott Leader, one of the two brothers, told the police that Guillermo started the confrontation. He reportedly said that “it was OK to assault the man because he was Hispanic and homeless”, adding that “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported.

In his campaign launch speech, Donald Trump made comments suggesting that Mexican immigrants are rapists, drug dealers, and killers, remarks that immigrant advocacy groups widely condemned.

When Trump was asked about the incident, he reportedly said, “It would be a shame… I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”

Trump’s assumptions about immigrants being criminals are simply unfounded. A recent Police Council report found that immigrants commit fewer crimes than native-born Americans. In this case the Leader brothers have extensive criminal records; Scott Leader once served a year in prison for a hate crime after he attacked a Moroccan man in Boston, just days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, according to court records.

Donald Trump’s Hispanophobic bigotry aided and abetted two brothers into committing a hate crime against a Latino man.

Hate crimes are disturbingly common. According to the latest data from the FBI, in 2013 there were a total of 5,928 reported hate crime incidents.

Additionally, with the increasing hard and hateful rhetoric against Hispanics, immigrants and those with appearance of immigrants in recent months have recently been given several hate crimes against Hispanics. Unfortunately, we have seen a distressing increase in violence motivated by ideological reasons against Hispanics and others. Unfortunately, hate crimes are a problem.

Inspirado a odiar (Crímenes de odio en contra de Latinos y Donald Trump)

La Oficina Federal de Investigación (FBI) define un crimen de odio como una “ofensa criminal en contra de una persona o propiedad motivado en su totalidad o en parte por la inclinación de un delincuente en contra de una raza, religión, discapacidad, origen étnico u orientación sexual”.

Diferentes estados definen los crímenes de odio de diversas maneras pero, en general, todos los estados utilizan esta definición como guía general y básica: un crimen de odio es un crimen que incluye amenazas, acoso y daño físico a un individuo o grupo, así como un prejuicio contra la raza, color, religión, origen nacional, identidad étnica, orientación sexual o discapacidad de una persona. En cada delito, el estado puede definir un crimen de odio en la forma que crea apropiada.

Los crímenes de odio en contra de los latinos han ido en aumento desde hace algún tiempo. En estadísticas publicadas anualmente por el FBI se encontró que los crímenes contra latinos aumentaron en un 35 por ciento entre 2003 y 2006. Y un informe del 2013 de las estadísticas de delitos de odio del FBI arrojo que 52.6 por ciento de las 821 víctimas latinas fueron atacados debido a a una inclinación en contra de los latinos o en contra de lo hispanos.

Un par de hermanos en Boston, Massachusetts atacaron a un hombre de 58 años de edad sin hogar Latino, cuyo nombre es Guillermo Rodríguez, originario del centro de México, debido a que uno de los hermanos fue “inspirado en parte” por el candidato presidencial republicano para el año 2016 Donald Trump.

Rodríguez fue encontrado por la policía cubierto de orina, con su nariz rota y el pecho y los brazos maltratados. Le dijo a la policía que “fue despertado por dos hombres orinando sobre su rostro.” Dijó que arrancaron sus mantas y su saco de dormir, le pegaron en la cara y la cabeza, y lo golpearon varias veces.

Rodríguez está en buenas condiciones, a pesar de que tiene la nariz rota y múltiples contusiones en la cabeza y el torso.

Scott Leader, uno de los dos hermanos, le dijo a la policía que Guillermo comenzó el enfrentamiento. Según los informes, expresó que “estaba bien atacar al hombre porque él era Hispano e indigente”, y agregó que “Donald Trump tenía razón, todos estos ilegales deben ser deportados.

En su discurso de su campaña de lanzamiento, Donald Trump hizo comentarios sugiriendo que los inmigrantes mexicanos son violadores, traficantes de drogas y asesinos, comentarios que los grupos de defensa de inmigrantes ampliamente condenaron.

Cuando a Trump se le preguntó sobre el incidente, según los informes, comentó: “Sería una vergüenza… Yo diría que las personas que me están siguiendo son muy apasionadas. Ellos aman a este país y que quieren que este país sea grande otra vez. Son apasionados”.

Las suposiciones de Trump sobre que los inmigrantes son criminales son simplemente infundadas. Un reciente informe del Consejo de la Policía encontró que los inmigrantes cometen menos delitos que los estadounidenses nativos. En este caso los hermanos Leader  tienen amplios antecedentes penales; Scott Leader sirvió una vez un año en la cárcel por un crimen de odio después de que atacó a un hombre marroquí en Boston, pocos días después de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre de 2001, según documentos judiciales.

La intolerancia hispanofóbica de Donald Trump incito a dos hermanos a cometer un crimen de odio en contra de un hombre latino.

Los crímenes de odio son preocupantemente comunes. De acuerdo con los datos más recientes del FBI, en el 2013 hubo un total de 5.928 incidentes de crímenes de odio reportados.

Adicionalmente, junto a la creciente retórica dura y odiosa contra los hispanos, inmigrantes y aquellos con apariencia de inmigrantes en los últimos meses, recientemente se han dado varios crímenes de odio contra hispanos. Desafortunadamente, hemos visto un angustioso incremento en la violencia motivada por causas ideológicas contra hispanos y otros. Lamentablemente, los crímenes de odio son un problema
