Kansas reported 113 incidents of hate crimes, compared to 99 in Missouri, the FBI reports. (In 2007, Kansas had 110 incidents -- Missouri had 114.)
Overall, almost 7,800 incidents nationally were reported to the FBI. That represents a slight increase, but the FBI warns us against reading too much into that -- because some police departments are a little flaky when it comes to passing their numbers to the feds. Some year, they remember to file a report. Other years, they don't. The bureau is very dubious of ranking cities according to these stats.
For another bit of perspective, we should note that most police departments included in the study -- 84 percent -- had NO reports of any hate crimes.
