As noted, the AP report appears in over 60 newspapers under titles similar to "Police see possible hate crime in California". The AZCentral report is the same as the AP report, except for the headline.
Apparently, an editor at AZCentral felt that the AP report wasn't biased enough, and had to be tweaked to make it even more biased. I sent a polite email to AZCentral, and I suggest you do the same:
