Where is her movement?

For context (from a New York Daily News article):
The 32-year-old [Shaima Al Awadi] was struck several times in the head, Fatima Al Himidi said, and there was a “letter next to her head saying, ‘Go back to your country, you terrorist.’”
“A week ago they left a letter saying this is our country not yours you terrorist, and so my mom ignored that thinking it was just kids playing a prank,” the teenager told KGTV 10 News. ”But the day they hit her, they left another note again, and it said the same thing.”
Police would not reveal what was in the letter, but confirmed one was found with the body.
….
No suspects have been identified, and police are not saying whether or not the case will be treated as a hate crime.
“Evidence thus far leads us to believe this is an isolated incident,” [Lt. Mark Coit] said.
I don’t see how being an “isolated incident” prevents it from being a hate crime. They beat a woman and left a letter telling to go back to her own country. What exactly would you call that?spread the word, tumblr.


We need to get better humanity….
