The Asian Hate Crimes Task Force tweeted the video, saying in part, “The cold hearted building security guard not only failed to render aid, he closed the door on the victim.”

Overnight, the management company of the building said it suspended the staff members who witnessed the attack, pending an investigation.

“The Brodsky Organization condemns all forms of discrimination, racism, xenophobia and violence against the Asian American,” the Brodsky Organization said in a statement. “The staff who witnessed the attack have been suspended pending an investigation in conjunction with their union.”

The hate crimes task force is also investigating an attack on the J train.One man beat and choked a man until he became unconscious. Police believe the victim is Asian.

Fellow riders watched without intervening.

Video of the attack has been viewed over one-million times on social media. Police are trying to track down its origin and identify both the victim and suspect.

We need the public’s help. The NYPD is aware of this video and is investigating. Anyone that has information regarding this incident is urged to call or DM @NYPDTips 1-800-577-TIPS and provide additional details including the date and time of occurrence.  @NYPDTransit@NYPDnews https://t.co/fJmZC1QJac

Dozens gathered in Queens on Monday night for a candlelight vigil honoring the lives lost in the Atlanta shooting and standing will all victims of hate.

“What kind of hate is displayed in this kind of attack?” said State Sen. John Liu.

“Asian Americans for too long in this country have been shamefully scapegoated because of ignorant fear,” said Rep. Grace Meng.

NYPD numbers show at least 31 anti-Asian hate crimes citywide so far in 2021. But the department admits crimes against Asian Americans have long gone underreported.

“We’re just starting to learn to speak up about something that’s been happening for as long as we can remember,” said Kim.

The Asian Hate Crimes Task Force told CBS2 bystanders too often do not intervene when witnessing an attack.

“Being silent is being complicit when we see our brothers and sisters being attacked,” said Queens Borough President Donovan Richards.

“It doesn’t get easier, but it’s helpful when people gather together,” said State Sen. Liu.

Starting this week, undercover Asian American police officers will be walking the streets with the purpose of preventing and responding to hate crimes.MORE

Meantime, investigators are asking anyone with information on these latest attacks to contact police.

(SAN DIEGO, Calif.) Justice Dept Report – County District Attorney Summer Stephan today condemned racism, xenophobia, and intolerance against Asian Americans & Pacific Islanders in the United States & urged members of the community to report hate-based crimes and incidents to law enforcement #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.22: Acting U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman, San Diego FBI Special Agent in Charge Suzanne Turner and San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan today condemned racism, xenophobia, and intolerance against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States and urged members of the community to report hate-based crimes and incidents to law enforcement.

NEWS RELEASE SUMMARY – March 19, 2021

San Diego Law Enforcement Leaders Condemn Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Acts of hate have no place in our community,” Grossman said. “No one should be targeted because of who they are or where they are from. When someone is targeted because of their race or ethnicity, terror reverberates to every member of their community. We want to receive reports of activities motivated by hate so that we can address civil rights violations, as well as hate and bias incidents.”

Southern District of California

Kelly Thornton (619) 546-9726     

“The FBI and our partners at the United States Attorney’s Office and the District Attorney’s Office simply won’t tolerate crimes spurred by hate and which are meant to intimidate and isolate the groups targeted,” said SAC Turner. “People of all races, ethnicity and national origins deserve to feel safe in their communities. If a crime is shown to be motivated by bias, it will be investigated by the FBI and the perpetrators held responsible for their actions.” SAC Turner emphasized, “Today, we are reminding the public to report information regarding any hate crime to the FBI.”  Members of the public may report a potential hate crime to the Federal Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-CALL-FBI or online at www.tips.fbi.gov.

“Hate crimes are despicable and inexcusable, said Stephan. “Protecting our community from hate crimes is a priority for my office because hate erodes our right to equality and fairness, leaves a lasting impact on the victim and instills fear in the wider community. Hate won’t be tolerated, and I encourage the community to report both hate incidents and hate crimes.”  Stephan said the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office has seen a three-fold increase in hate crimes targeting Asian communities in San Diego County and is currently prosecuting several such criminal cases. The DA’s Office has established an online tool at SanDiegoDA.com where the public can directly report suspected hate crimes.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation review information and community reports about potential hate crimes for potential prosecution, and also provide assistance to local, state, and tribal law enforcement with investigations of hate crimes through their participation in the San Diego Regional Anti-Hate Crime Coalition. Local leaders, including Assistant U.S. Attorney and Civil Rights Enforcement Coordinator Christopher Tenorio and Deputy District Attorney and Lead Hate Crimes Prosecutor Leonard Trinh, will participate in a webinar hosted by Alliant International University ABC 10 News, San Diego, on March 23, 2021, titled “Unpacking Domestic Terrorism: Combating Hate & Targeted Violence Against the Asian-American Community.”        

For information about this event, please see attached flyer.

HONG KONG: ‘ Leung Chun-Ying Vows to Stay in Office as Protesters Set-Up Tent City ‘

#AceWorldNews – HONG KONG – October 13 – Hong Kong’s embattled leader Leung Chun-ying vowed on Sunday to stay in office, warning students demanding his resignation that their pro-democracy movement was out of control Reuters reported. 

' Hong Kong Leader Will not Changed his Mind as Protesters Set-Up Tent City '

‘ Hong Kong Leader Will not Changed his Mind as Protesters Set-Up Tent City ‘

Leung said the blockade of key parts of the Asian financial hub – now entering its third week – could not continue indefinitely.

Speaking in an interview with the local TVB television station, Leung said his government would continue to try to talk with student leaders but did not rule out the use of “minimum force” to clear the area.

The last few weeks had “proved that a mass movement is something easy to start, but difficult to stop,” he said.

“And no-one can direct the direction and pace of this movement. It is now a movement that has lost control.”

‘ Hong Kong’s Leader Says China Defiant Over Reforms ‘

#AceWorldNews – HONG KONG – September 30 – Hong Kong’s leader said China won’t back down from its decision to limit voting reforms in the Asian financial hub as pro-democracy protesters set a Wednesday deadline for a response from the government to meet their demands.

The unequivocal statement from Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying on Tuesday dashed hopes that the stand-off between demonstrators and authorities could be resolved quickly through negotiations.

It does not come as a surprise given that showing a willingness to talk would have made the Chinese leadership appear weak, which could embolden dissidents, critics and separatists on the mainland.

As the student-led protests that have snarled traffic and disrupted public transport entered a fifth day, Leung urged demonstrators to show consideration toward other residents and stop the unprecedented show of civil disobedience.

Leung, a Beijing appointee who is deeply mistrusted by Hong Kongers, also said that mainland communist leaders would not reverse their stance requiring a pro-Beijing panel screen candidates in the territory’s first direct elections, scheduled for 2017, adding he wouldn’t resign before then.

“The central government will not rescind its decision,” Leung said.

‘ Smuggler Has Turtles Concealed in His Sweat-Pants ‘

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES- September 27 – There are many things one might expect people to smuggle across the American border and into other countries inside of their pants, but dozens of aquatic reptiles?

That’s exactly what one man was found hiding near Detroit.

Canadian citizen Kai Xu was trying to return to Windsor when he was caught with 51 turtles inside his sweat pants last month, according to recently unsealed court documents, the Detroit Free Pressreports.

The reason for stuffing his pants with this many animals is not clear at this point, but officials investigating the incident believe that he was trying to sell the turtles to markets in Asia, where the reptiles are a popular treat.

There’s now a burgeoning Asian market,” said Gavin Shire of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, who helped authorities investigate the incident. He also told the newspaper there is a lot of both illegal and unregulated turtle consumption.”

At the same time, the criminal complaint filed in court does not state whether or not Xu tried to clarify why he had more than 50 turtles in his pants.

What authorities do know is that they spotted Xu picking up a package in Detroit that was from Alabama and marked “live fish keep cool.”

The complaint says that after Xu opened the box, he was seen carrying a pair of scissors, tape, and bags to a spot in between two UPS semi-trailers, only to walk back to his car with no bags – instead, there were bulges under his pant legs that could be seen.

As Xu made his way to the border and tried to enter Canada, he was stopped in a search that uncovered eastern box turtles, red-eared sliders and diamondback terrapins in his pants.

Law enforcement officials have levied three charges against Xu: smuggling goods from the United States, trading in specimens illegally, and exporting fish or wildlife illegally.

` Philippines Police Seize a Chinese Fishing Boat in Disputed South China Sea Carrying Disputed Cargo ‘

#AceWorldNews – MANILA/BEIJING – May 07 (Reuters) – Philippines police seized a Chinese fishing boat in the disputed South China Sea on Wednesday, an official told Reuters, the latest flare-up of tensions in the oil and gas-rich waters that are claimed wholly or in part by six Asian nations.

Chief Superintendent Niel Vargas of the Philippine National Police Maritime Group said a maritime police patrol apprehended a Chinese fishing boat around 7 a.m. on Tuesday off Half Moon Shoal.

The boat has 11 crew and police found about 500 turtles in the vessel, some of which were already dead, he said, adding that a Philippine boat with crew was also seized, and found to have 40 turtles on board.
Several species of sea turtles are protected under Philippine law.

Maritime police are now towing the boats to Puerto Princesa town on the island of Palawan where appropriate charges will be filed against them, Vargas said.

The incident is bound to raise the ire of Beijing, which claims almost the entire South China Sea, rejecting rival claims from Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia and Brunei.

` US Pushing North Korea towards the Nuclear Arms Race and Greater Potential ‘

#AceNewsServices – MOSCOW – April 22 (Interfax) – The upcoming trip by the United States President Barack Obama to the Pacific region will only intensify the confrontation and instigate a nuclear arms race, said a spokesman for the North Korean Foreign Ministry ahead of the U.S. leader’s visit to Japan and South Korea.

This trip, along with the growing intensity and scale of the joint U.S.-South Korean drills in the region, aims “to artificially keep the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) in tension and push it towards having to strengthen its nuclear deterrence forces and respond with military steps,” the North Korean Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson said.

“Washington needs that in order to stick a belligerent-nation label onto the DPRK and find a justification for its own military policy,” Pyongyang said.

“The DPRK does not intend to make a slightest concession on the fundamental issues of its national security or leave anything to a chance in the fear of baseless U.S. accusations of belligerence,” the spokesperson said.

“As long as the U.S. continues to remain on hostile terms with us, the DPRK will double its efforts to strengthen its deterrence forces for self-defense purposes so as to give a resolute response to this policy,” the spokesperson said.

During his Asian tour Obama will visit Japan and South Korea on April 23 – 26.

Meanwhile, Seoul notes signs of Pyongyang’s preparations for another nuclear test.

North Korean specialists may indeed be holding preparations for another test of a nuclear weapon, the South Korean Defense Ministry spokesperson Kim Min-seok said at a briefing in Seoul.

“Our military have noted increased activities in the Phunggyere site and in the immediate vicinity from it,” he said.

Earlier North Korea’s possible preparations for a nuclear test were reported by South Korean media outlets which cited unnamed military sources.

Nor has Seoul ruled out the possibility that Pyongyang could stage a provocation timed to coincide with Obama’s two-day visit to South Korea which begins on Friday.

North Korea held nuclear tests in 2006, 2009 and 2013.

` Japan’s Minster Visited `Yasukuni Shrine ‘ Amid Controversy ‘

#AceWorldNews – TOKYO – April 12 – (RT) – Yoshitaka Shindo, Japan’s minister for internal affairs and communications, have visited the Yasukuni shrine, Japanese Jiji Press service and the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said.

The temple honours Japan’s war dead, including several high-level officials executed for war crimes after World War II.

Chinese and South Korean authorities see the shrine as a reminder of Tokyo’s imperialist past and wartime aggression as over 1,000 war criminals from World War II are also buried there.

Japan is undergoing a period of distancing itself from its post-war pacifist policies.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made his first visit to the Yasukuni shrine in his present capacity in December over protests from some other Asian nations.

` Japan hails the Summit Meeting between Shinzo Abe and Park Geun-hye and Brokered by Obama as chance to build a Rapport ‘

#AceWorldNews – HAGUE – March 25 – Japan on Wednesday hailed the first summit between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Park Geun-hye as a chance to build a rapport after more than a year of back-biting, AFP said.

The talks in The Hague were hosted by US President Barack Obama, as Washington is increasingly frustrated by tensions between its two major Asian allies.

South Korean media said Park appeared unimpressed by Abe’s attempts to speak Korean during a photo opportunity, and Seoul has yet to make an official statement about the meeting itself.
