Let’s Talk About the 31 Gang Members Arrested Last Year for Targeting Asians

June 15, 2020

As reported by KTLA5 and Asian-American Gun Owners of California, 31 gang members were arrested and charged last March for participating in a burglary ring that targeted elderly Asian victims across Los Angeles County.

It’s been over a year already, no nationwide press, no African-American organizations getting together and condemning this racist and heinous act against the Asian-American community, which we’re sorry to report, isn’t the first time. No major civil unrest issues last year. More than enough time to call this issue out.

The accused gang members committed burglaries and robberies on homes from “Santa Monica, Beverly Hills to the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys,” according to the DA’s office.
