The street apes are taking advantage of these peaceful people. I don't blame them for arming themselves and defending their property.

Whether the tension between the refugee and African-American communities escalates to a street-level war remains to be seen.
For now, the refugees are hoping their continuing presence in this community will allow them to acclimate better, and that police will start to help them.
"We want to know how to prevent these things from going on," said Rai. "We are peace-loving people, we are hard working people, we are going to work hard over here. We have to establish over here. This is our new country, this is our new home."
Hkadin Lee, refugee outreach coordinator at Lake Avenue Baptist Church, said her group tries to teach refugees that condemning the entire African-American community is wrong but it's difficult to break down those stereotypes when the incidents are so frequent and involve the same group.
"They are getting this stereotype that African-American people are all bad
"condemning the entire African-American community is wrong but it's difficult to break down those stereotypes when the incidents are so frequent and involve the same group."??? Exactly

"African-Americans are targeting them, and there is just so much of this they are going to take," said Bill Wischmeyer, an advocate for the refugee community known as "Mr. Bill."
"They're angry. They are ready to explode and it's going to get worse until someone ends up dead."

""I was very angry, very mad. My father doesn't even speak English," Khadka, 22, says in his heavy Nepali accent.
But his anger didn't begin on the day in April when his father, a 56-year-old refugee from Nepal, was beaten and robbed by three young black men as he walked along Lake Avenue with only a new pair of sandals in his hand and a few dollars in his pocket."
"Nor did his fury boil a few years ago when Khadka was struck in the back of his head and his uncle was thrown to the ground, robbed of $60 and two bus passes.
Rather, he says, the violent and misplaced anger he feels toward African Americans has been building for years in this small community of perhaps a few thousand South Asian refugees "
Time for Mayor Lovely to demand a major police crack down. Is she Mayor of all of the people or just her people?

This is no different than what the whites did to the Vietnamese "Boat People" that settled in the Pines of Perinton back in the 80's....the white Cops wouldn't even file police reports, when they knew exactly who was doing it....
Pot calling the kettle black...pun intended.

"Hand wants readers to understand that the refugees are peaceful people, and this is a form of bullying, something the entire community needs to stand up against."
Good luck with that.
Skip the whole knife thing and get yourselves some fire arms.
Then, when some nitwit breaks into your house, you give them a third eye!
No guns, no peace.

Just another Liberal ploy to get Federal grant money out the US taxpayer. It won't accomplish anything but line somebody's pocket.
