  1. I would be very curious what “not specified “, stands for?
    PS interesting site.

    • It simply means the police didn’t specify exactly which religion was targeted in their report. That could be because of an oversight, or it could be because it wasn’t clear – for example, when the hate crime seems to target multiple religions, or religion in general, or was confused about which religion was being targeted (like writing islamophobic graffiti on a Sikh temple), all of which are quite common (bigots don’t tend to be particularly discerning, or well-informed, about their targets).

  2. Yap, just what suspected.
