There have been 4,120 reported hate crimes across the country, including 56 murders, from 2003 until 2015, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a Montgomery, Alabama-based advocacy group. The Federal Bureau of Investigation says a hate crime is "a traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias." Under federal law, a hate crime is defined 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," the FBI says on its website.
