The Los Angeles City Council last week passed stronger protections against hate crimes. The legislation instructs the Los Angeles Police Department to better protect places that may be the targets of hate crimes, like cultural centers and synagogues, and establishes a hotline for hate crime prevention.
According to FBI data, the worst months for hate crimes in the past ten years have been November 2016 and October 2018, the months of the presidential and midterm elections, respectively. Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at Cal State San Bernardino, said that people should be alert. “I can tell you, with an election season coming up, we really have to be concerned,” Levin said.
