Summary:

A community outreach program meant to reduce hate crimes targeting Muslims in northern California by bringing the Federal Bureau of Investigation in closer contact with area Muslims wound up generating additional scrutiny of lawful activities in the community; related documents also showed agents disregarding evidence of hate crimes in at least two cases, one culminating in arson after years of vandalism.

Notes:

The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California and other groups filed the request, which yielded about 15,000 documents from the F.B.I.
