‘I wasn’t surprised to be completely honest,’ one victim said
A Black Lives Matter protester who demonstrated at Seattle’s CHOP autonomous zone last summer has been charged with hate crimes against Asian-American women, KOMO-TV reported.
Seattle police arrested Christopher Hamner last month for two alleged incidents of anti-Asian hate attacks, the station said.
Pamela Cole told KOMO that Hamner threatened her and her young children when she tried to drive past him.
“He just opens his door and starts yelling at me ‘F you, you Asian B! ‘F you’ kind of thing,” Cole recalled to the station. “And then he pulls in the parking lot and comes charging at us.”
