(St. Louis) U.S. Attorney Sayler Fleming and F.B.I. St. Louis Special Agent in Charge Richard Quinn want to educate the public on the definition of a federal hate crime and encourage those with information about those crimes to report them.
A federal hate crime is a violent act motivated by bias towards a person’s actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office and F.B.I. urge Missourians to report all incidents where a federal hate crime may have occurred.
People with information about a possible federal hate crime are encouraged to contact the F.B.I. in St. Louis at 314-589-2500.
