Violent crime against Asian-Americans is is soaring to unheard of levels. According to ABC 7, two more violent attacks on elderly Asian-Americans were recorded in New York City last night one in Manhattan and another along the subway line. It is unclear if they were specifically targeted or particularly sought out — though it is clear they were both hate crimes.
Due to the violent nature of the videos, we aren’t permitted to show the videos in this newspaper so you’ll have to watch them over at ABC. One woman was beaten to a pulp on 43rd street and is in the hospital in critical condition — while an Asian man was violently beaten on a subway in Brooklyn.
The NYPD has dubbed both hate crimes and is actively investigating both of them.
