This document aims to formulate the research question and to emphasize the importance of proper regulation and punishment of crimes in order to raise the level of concussions in the process of building a real democracy and respect for human rights and freedoms. It is a crime committed with a motive of prejudice, two elements that make the act of hatred. In general sense we are talking about a negative concept and negative action that causes negative consequences. There must be a basic criminal act in order to have a hate crime, thus logically any crime can become a hate crime, from murder and rape, to harassment and vandalism. We are not talking only in the context of physical violence, but also words, threats and incitement to hatred. The acts of hatred convey the history of racism, discrimination and oppression that reflects inadequate evaluation of the victim. It is essentially a violation of fundamental ideals and principles, fundamental to modern democratic and multicultural societies. Hate crimes carry greater injuries that carry a strong message to the target person, the individuals or the group as a whole, inflict greater injuries and carry a greater offense than the basic crimes. More strictly and rigorously penalties as a solution to try to solve the problem of hate crimes in this modern society of globalization and at the same time a missing tool for active citizenship referring to an individual's resocialization and a deterrent effect from the thought of doing.
