Accused killer at Kansas City Jewish centers could face hate-crime charges

Catholic World News - April 16, 2014

The man who shot and killed three people at Jewish community centers in Kansas City is likely to face hate-crime charges because of his animus against Jews, although all three victims were Christians.

Frazier Glenn Cross, who was arrested and charged with the shootings, has been connected with white-supremacy groups known for their hostility toward Judaism. A legal analyst for CNN said that the religious affiliations of his actual victims could be irrelevant to the issue of hate-crime charges, because “all that matters is that the crime was motivated, in whole or in part, by the offender’s bias.”
