Was this included in the hate crime data?

Gang of four who brutally beat Trump supporter in Chicago is about to receive justice – TheBlaze

Chicago police say they have arrested and charged four people in the politically charged beat down of a man in the middle of a Chicago street earlier this month, while a nearby crowd failed to render aid and chanted “Don’t vote Trump.”

Authorities say 26-year-old Julian Christian, 21-year-old Rajane Lewis, 20-year-old Dejuan Collins and a 17-year-old girl who wasn’t identified were each charged with vehicular hijacking in the Nov. 9 incident. Christian is from Broadview, Illinois, and Lewis and Collins are from Chicago.

Forty-nine-year-old David Wilcox says he was attacked after another car scraped his. He says he was beaten after parking and asking the other driver if he had insurance. Someone drove off with Wilcox’s car during the attack on Chicago’s West Side.

Wilcox told the Chicago Tribune:

“One of the guys — African-American at the bus stop — said ‘Yeah, that’s one of those white boy Trump supporters.’ And I said ‘What does that have to do with this accident? I just want to exchange insurance.’”

“And then, the next thing I know, the guy said, ‘Don’t worry about it, we’re gonna beat his ass.’”
Wilcox says he voted for President-elect Donald Trump, but says that he never mentioned it to any of the people that beat him.

After he was beaten, someone hijacked his car and dragged Wilcox for nearly a mile as he hung on, according WLS-TV.

Wilcox says he plans to show up for the court date of each suspect. Watch video of the brutal beating here.

Not an accurate representation of a white person.

Hate crimes cover crimes motivated against race, religion, gender, ...
It's actually a small list. A finite list. Many things are not on it.

Political affiliation is not included.
I actually support adding "political affiliation" to the list.

Regardless, the number of attacks would most likely be smaller than those that this thread was actually started for...
