Could we get some details on what factors of the incident escalated the attack into a hate crime? What evidence has been offered to the DA to support that charge? The article eludes to a pursuit by the attacker, what started the pursuit? That there are "numerous white supremacists movements" in Fresno or that someone peripherally associated with the accused has a KKK tattoo or simply that it was an attack on an Indian are not enough to make it a "hate crime". I'm not saying it wasn't - just saying the article provides no info to support the charge.
