Will these arrests stop the media from repeating the lie that the attacks on Asian people by criminals have something to do with President Trump calling out China over the Wuhan Virus?
Don’t bet on it.
Nor will it stop the #StopAAPIHate tweets and the rest of the wholly false flag campaign trying to blame some sort of general American racism for violence caused by Democrat criminal justice reform policies in places like the Bay Area.
On Wednesday, the Santa Clara District Attorney’s Office announced hate crime charges against six suspects in 70 crimes after a sprawling year-long investigation, according to the Bay Area News Group. And it definitely appears that yes, some of the most prolific attackers do specifically target Asian women, often seniors. They know this because according to the DA’s evidence, “ethnic slurs were allegedly used against some of the women,” and “the men allegedly targeted Asian women because they believed [Asians] ‘don’t use banks’ and would be carrying cash.”
We should specifically note the tactics. Per the Bay Area News Group, the DA says “the suspects followed the women to their cars and waited until they were inside before opening the door or breaking a window to snatch a purse from their passenger seat.”
This is the sort of behavior that Democrats want to legalize the way that they legalized stealing less than $950.
A bill proposed by an East Bay Senator with the intent to revise the penal code is getting a lot of attention, as critics say it would essentially re-classify violent robberies to misdemeanor petty thefts. This has sparked outrage from members of the Asian American community, who are now speaking out, saying this is not their idea of justice.
The concern now is over bill SB82 which, if passes, would reclassify certain robberies which do not involve a deadly weapon or great bodily harm as misdemeanors, not felonies. Misdemeanors carry a maximum $1,000 fine and one year behind bars.
In practice, they carry nothing and the perps would be out on the street the next day.
“We are sensitive to the hate aspect targeting Asian females,” San Jose Chief of Police Anthony Mata said in a statement. “I commend District Attorney Jeff Rosen for pursuing hate crime enhancements. We have tenacious investigators, and a dedicated apprehension team that was tasked with bringing these suspects to justice.”
The arrests all took place in August and September of this year, but the suspects were charged today with hate crime enhancements. According to the news group, the suspects are “Twenty four-year-old Anthony Michael Robinson of Stockton; Cameron Alonzo Moody, 27, of East Palo Alto; Derje Damond Blanks, 23, of San Jose; Hassani Burleson Ramsey, 24, of Oakland; Clarence Jackson, 21, of East Palo Alto and Malik Short, 21, of Tracy.”
Do muggings have to be branded a hate crime for the DA to go after the perps?
