Voice: Press applauded for articles that will discourage hate crimes

December 27, 2001

I have noticed what I think is your second front-page article depicting in an attractive way professionals in the Valley who might fit a "terrorist profile" (a Sikh and an Egyptian, I believe).

My legal aid firm has been gearing up for a possible rash of hate crimes. Hate crimes have indeed occurred elsewhere in California. I have said all along that I thought it very unlikely that hate crimes would erupt in Imperial Valley.

With your timely action to head it off, it is even less likely. Thanks.
