PELOSI’S DISTRICT: Anti-Asian Hate Crimes Jump 567% in San Francisco

Anti-Asian hate crimes spiked 567% in San Francisco last year, raising new questions over safety and security in America’s biggest cities heading into 2022.

“San Francisco officials pledged to better protect Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders as preliminary data from the city’s police department showed the number of people who reported being the victim of an anti-AAPI hate crime in the city last year increased by 567 percent compared with the previous year,” reports the Washington Post.

“We will do everything we can to make those arrests, to hold perpetrators accountable,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed (D) said Tuesday. “I’m angry about the violence that has continued to impact many of the people who are part of our Asian community but especially our seniors,” she added.
