The video discusses first on how D.C. cops did not help solve any hate crimes. In the video it discusses statitics in Virginia report a large amount of hate crimes then D.C. only had two. The police officers are taken part in a seminar on giving awareness to the community and to teach cops that homosexual people are not giving enough attention to hate crimes. This is a new form of community policing to help make their jobs more efficent. This has been going on for five years now and the success rate has been great on taking away all stereotypes of people.

I really liked that you posted this video. It taught me a lot. I feel like they should have units like this everywhere especially because the LGBTQ community is still oppressed and still does not have the same rights as everyone else. It is so important that these officers were thinking about this community. They easily could have said that 2 reportings of violence meant that that's really what was happening. Instead they said something wasn't right and they fixed it. I give a lot of credit to these brave officers. Sometimes people have a hard time empathizing with groups with which they don't identify. In this case, I think they did a great job.
