TROUBLING RISE IN CRIMES AGAINST ASIAN-AMERICANS

Victim of attack in Chinatown-International District says assault was hate crime | KOMO (komonews.com)

Activists are troubled by a series of assaults against Asian-Americans that have spiked during the COVID-19 pandemic across the country. For example: just last week, an elderly man who was savagely beaten and robbed at a San Francisco laundromat. In New York: a Filipino-American man was slashed with a boxcutter on a packed subway, among many incidents. “It makes me really angry hearing about all these incidences,” said Tanya Woo with the Chinatown International District Community Night Watch Group. “They may not constitute what a hate crime is, under the law, but I feel like there are a lot of other things happening when there is violence towards any ethnic group.”

Governor Jay Inslee condemned the horrific attacks Tuesday. “Washington is a place where all people should feel safe and included. This is a welcoming state and I have a zero-tolerance policy for hate and racism. We must all condemn the acts of hate and violence displayed in the rising incidence of anti-Asian hate crimes in both Washington state and across the country. This is wholly unacceptable and must not stand. We saw this ugly trend surge a year ago, when COVID-19 first emerged in our state. One year later, we have a vaccine for the virus but racism is still running rampant. Victims deserve support and justice. There are systems in place to ensure offenders face consequences for their unconscionable actions. I encourage victims to come forward and report their experience to local law enforcement. I stand in solidarity with members of the Asian community who continue to experience fear and intimidation. They deserve better, and we must do everything in our power to make their safety and security a priority and to eliminate racism in Washington.”

“It’s great to hear the governor make the statement, but we want to see what is going to be done,” said Woo. “We would like to see more policies and tougher laws regarding hate crimes.”
