He was expected, it said, to stay at the hospital “for a few days of observation and treatment.”

He also suffered a rib fracture, according to a statement from his communications director on Monday, and will go to a rehabilitation facility before going home.

FBI: Hate crimes showed another alarming rise in 2021

The number of hate crimes in the U.S. jumped again in 2021, continuing an alarming rise, according to FBI data released Monday.

The nearly 12% increase marks a reversal of a previous, incomplete report from the agency that appeared to show a drop but was missing data from some of the nation’s largest cities, including New York and Los Angeles.

Most of the victims, 64.5% were targeted due to their race, ethnicity or ancestry. Another 16% were targeted over their sexual orientation, and 14% of cases involved religious bias, according to the FBI report.

Capitol Rioter’s Social Media Posts From CPAC Used Against Him in Filing

Capitol riot suspect is being chastised by the government for attending a conservative conference when he was supposed to adhere to specific travel restrictions.

On March 1 Gabriel Augustin Garcia, on behalf of his attorney, Angela Webb, issued a motion of request “to travel to, and enter into” the District of Columbia that day to observe two January 6 trials taking place that week: USA v. Gossjankowski and USA v. Tarrio, “and also any other J6 trials or court proceedings occurring.”

U.S. attorneys claim that Garcia spent more time at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) than observing trials.
