Hate Crime Charges Possible in Mob Attack


by Jennifer Tomazic

WEST ALLIS -- West Allis Police say they'll recommend hate crime charges against some of the suspects responsible for the mob attacks at State Fair last week.

Police say all 11 victims were White or Hispanic and the attackers were African-American and they believe race was a factor.

The suspects could face additional punishment under the state's Hate Crime Enhancer statute.
