Gay bashings on the rise
The FBI released an alarming report on Monday that says gay bashings made up 16% of all hate crimes in the U.S. in 2006, up from 14% in 2005.
Overall, bias-motivated crimes increased 8 percent in 2006. Hate crimes based on sexual orientation are the third most common type behind those based on race and religion, according to the annual report.
Can you believe that?! If anything, I expected gay bashings to be on the decline.
