A crime committed against anyone is awful. A crime committed against someone out of hatred because of a perceived or actual characteristic of that person arguably makes the crime worse.

We believe legislation should be enacted to address bias-motivated crimes, which are crimes committed against a victim because of perceived or actual characteristics such as race, religion, national origin or sexual orientation, to ensure the protection of all Hoosiers and hold criminals accountable.
