Nassau produces anti-hate crime video

October 15, 2009 3:46:48 PM PDT
Nassau County officials are holding a "red carpet" premiere to mark the production of an anti-hate-crime video. The 12-minute video was produced with the help of the county's bias crimes task force. It will be used as a teaching tool.

Thirty-nine local teens appear in the video.

Police Commissioner Lawrence Mulvey says he was inspired to have "Hate-Crossing the Line" made after watching a similar film that aired in 2008 on CNN, called "The Noose."

The video opens Thursday night at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City.

Production money came from the county's Asset Forfeiture Fund.
