Hate Crimes Legislation Unveiled At Pittsburgh Synagogue Where 11 Were Killed In Mass Shooting

A package of bills being proposed would address hate crimes in Pennsylvania. The legislation includes increased investigative authority by the state Attorney General, enhanced training for police officers in how to determine when a hate crime has been committed, and mandatory sensitivity training as part of any hate crime sentence. A news conference announcing the bills was held outside the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, where a mass shooting last October claimed 11 lives.
