It’s exasperating that another innocent is attacked for no reason. This crime took place in broad daylight in a diverse neighborhood. Why hasn’t this been more widely reported in the media? Where is the outrage and outcry from our electeds? We need stronger police enforcement and punishment. This thug needs to caught and locked up. I hope the victim recovers from this trauma.

“The suspect, described as Hispanic,…”
Once again, this thug doesn’t fit our leftist narrative of the xenophobic, racist, anti-Asian, White Supremacist. Are we sure we got the “right” guy?

I am a Hispanic woman outraged of this savage behavior. The hispanic- latino-latinx community does not tolerate these crimes. All of us are witnessing these inhuman acts and have to say no more. This could be my grandma, this could be me, this could be you- STOP ASIAN HATE.
