In yet another hateful attack on an Asian individual, a video has surfaced showing a young man calling for it to go viral as another attacker smacks his victim hard across his ear and the side of his head.
The boy who assaulted the man then ran towards the back of the train as his victim stood up looking unbalanced. It was a brief and brutal hate crime that the two boys apparently thought was funny.
Many such attacks are taking place across the nation and they appear to be racially motivated.
An anti-Asian hate crime bill has been passed but the attacks seem to be increasing. Police have stepped up patrols in Asian neighborhoods in major cities in an attempt to stop the attacks. But even Asian police are being assaulted.
Like the little punk said. Make it go viral.

Just last week, a 55-year-old woman was sucker-punched in the face outside a restaurant in Chinatown in New York City as she was walking home from work. She was knocked unconscious. The man was arrested and is said to be mentally ill. The woman eventually was released and will be okay but she is shaken by the attack.
Police said a 48-year-old Manhattan man was arrested where the attack took place. A police spokesperson said that he was charged with assault as a hate crime, assault, and criminal possession of a controlled substance. The man was transported to Bellevue hospital for evaluation after appearing to have an animated discussion with himself.
This was just sent to me from my constituent. This just happened in my district in Chinatown. He has been arrested and our precinct is investigating. pic.twitter.com/sxNfCbrlza

An Asian San Francisco police officer was attacked last week after responding to a call about a man making racial threats in Chinatown. He was allegedly making threats just the day before, claiming that he “specializes in killing Asian people.” The officer was reportedly tackled and thrown to the ground by the suspect.
“He’s a big guy, he was not letting go. He had a death grip on her. And he was not letting go,” explained Michael Waldorf, who was eating dinner with his family at the time. “I saw it as an emergency. She needed our help and she needed it right away,” he told ABC7 News.
Multiple individuals jumped in to save her. They tackled, hit, and tried to pry the suspect off the officer. She was about half his size. The officer reportedly sustained a bloody nose and minor injuries in the attack.

And in yet another example from a week ago, a man in New York City punched a 75-year-old Asian woman in the face in broad daylight.
The victim suffered a fractured nose and right orbital bone, according to police. She was hospitalized in stable condition. That suspect has evidently not been caught yet.

There are too many recent assaults to list and some attacks have been deadly. Most of them seem to occur in big cities and the incidents are increasing.
There was anger and outrage over the train incident:

This isn’t new. A certain demographic has been terrorizing Asians long before the pandemic.
