  • 1 The term victim may refer to a person, business, institution, or society as a whole.
  • 2 The term known offender does not imply that the identity of the suspect is known, but only that an attribute of the suspect has been identified, which distinguishes him/her from an unknown offender.
  • 3 The term anti-not Hispanic or Latino does not imply the victim was targeted because he/she was not of Hispanic origin, but it refers to other or unspecified ethnic biases that are not Hispanic or Latino.
  • 4 A multiple-bias incident is an incident in which one or more offense types are motivated by two or more biases.
