FARGO, N.D. (KVRR) — A Fargo activist is looking for change from state officers in addressing hate crimes.
A North Dakota century code enacted in 1973 considers hate crimes to be class B misdemeanors.
Demonstrators are asking for the Cass County State’s Lawyer’s Workplace to work with legislation enforcement officers throughout the state to make sure hate crimes are being prosecuted to the total extent of the legislation.
“It’s a should that all of us participate in condemning these acts. From what we will surmise nobody has ever been charged with a criminal offense underneath this hate crime century code,” Wess Philome mentioned.
The Fargo Human Relations Fee voted yesterday to unanimously help an anti-bias ordinance, recommending its approval to the Metropolis Fee. The total fee will take it up Monday evening.
