"I am outraged and disgusted by the assault that occurred on the Eastbank Esplanade. We will not tolerate this kind of behavior in our community and I will ask the District Attorney to pursue maximum penalty," Mayor Ted Wheeler said

I'm relieved to not see the 'this is not who we are' accountability dodge from a public official for once.

The problem with Asian hate crimes is an hour later you want to commit another one.

Sorry 'bout that.

Interesting that he targeted them for being Japanese (though there's a good chance they weren't), as most of the anti-Asian violence in the US is directed against (those assumed) Chinese, in no small part because of the rhetoric around the so-called "China virus".

Did the dude eat some bad gas-station "sushi" or something?

It's a floating pathway. Those rusty poles are pylons that the keep the pathway in place but allow it to rise and fall with the river level

A pattern has emerged. Brave, brave defenders against people of color like to beat and murder children - often while labeling themselves "pro-life." Oddly, they are as comfortable beating and killing white children as children of other races. (See many school shootings.) I'm not sure how that furthers their agenda.

Imagine all the jailhouse cred he gets for beating up a five-year old girl.

What if he starts turning Japanese, will he begin hitting himself?

After making the remark, Kesterson allegedly began hitting the 36-year-old man in the head. He then punched the man's 5-year-old daughter in her bike helmet "numerous times."
Witnesses in the area immediately intervened, according to reports. Kesterson, who walked away, was arrested nearby shortly after.


Farking limp-dicked Portlanders! If this jaggoff tried doing that in a place like downtown Philly, there wouldn't be any "walking away" from the kind of proper beatdown he'd have gotten.

No-one is intervening, cos they are afraid of being shot by the cops or getting sued by perp.

That's not why people don't intervene. They don't intervene because fist fights are dangerous and they don't want to get their ass kicked.

Everyone avoids me like a psyched Lone Ranger

Escalating a situation like that is how people end up dead. That said, had he gotten a beat down I wouldn't be sad. I hope he enjoys the next 10+ years in jail, I'm sure that was worth the 10 seconds of hate.

We used to have psych wards to throw these people into, back when we were semi-civilized.

Many Americans don't distinguish much between East Asian or African countries of origin, and a few don't even understand that China and Japan are distinct countries, as opposed to one being a subset of the other.

It says they did intervene, but most likely in a "hey, what the fark are you doing" manner.

There was an attack on an Asian teen on a train in Philly in the last year.  The criminals didn't get any beatdown.

You probably remember the guys awhile back that intervened on the behalf of a couple girls getting hassled on the train by some racist asshole and getting killed for their trouble.  Not very far from that place, either.

Isn't Philly where the guy raped the woman on the train and people just filmed it?

He's due for arraignment, so does this mean he made bail...?

Who in their right minds could have any farking reason in the world to dislike Japanese people?

What supposedly racially prevalent trait are they known for that is in any way offensive to, um, ANYONE?

It's like having an intense dislike for wooden spoons or something. Completely farking insane.

how come I can't find a mugshot of this guy or any info about what he looks like? I think I know.
