Hate crimes on the rise in America
Christian was charged with two counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempt to aggravated murder, two counts of second-degree intimidation and one count of first-degree assault, and three counts of unlawful use of a weapon in the recent Portland stabbings.
The 35 year-old man was hurling hate comments at two young women, one of them wearing a hijab when some men defended them and were stabbed by Christian.
Hate crimes in the country have seen a sharp surge in the past few years.
