Flashback: Greatest Hits of Jim Hardin, Vol. XI

"City leaders underscore need to fight hate crimes" - The News & Observer (March 8, 1999)

Leaders from across the city gathered Thursday to publicize efforts taken to prevent hate crimes in Durham.
Although the city has experienced only one documented case of a crime motivated by bias since the legislature enacted a hate-crime law in 1991, city officials said the issue deserves constant attention.
"We're not going to stand for this type of violence," District Attorney Jim Hardin Jr. said. "It's important that we've taken a progressive stance to protect victims of hate crimes."
