This chapter focuses on the government's response to anti-integrationist violence. This response may involve a variety of actors, ranging from police officers investigating the crime to judges involved in sentencing. In cases of neighborhood hate crime, the very first governmental actor that the individual targeted by the harassment encounters is the police. In the best-case scenario, the responding officer gathers evidence, arrests any perpetrators at the scene of the crime, gets the names of witnesses, and writes a summary report. The Justice Department then may sentence the perpetrators for violating the general criminal law, the civil rights law, and the local hate crime law.

Keywords:   anti-integrationist violence, neighborhood hate crime, Justice Department, general criminal law, civil rights law, local hate crime law
