man stabbed in hate crime attack

This week in San Dimas, CA, an Asian man was stabbed in the face and torso during a hate crime attack at Lone Hill Middle School: Attack labeled a hate crime. According to Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies, the attackers—a 15-year-old boy and a man in his 20s—shouted racial epithets and "White Power" while stabbing the man. Paramedics flew the victim to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.

Deputies identified the 15-year-old suspect and arrested him, but the man in his 20s was not in custody as of Wednesday evening. Authorities can't confirm whether the attackers were members of a white supremacist group, but the sheriff's hate crimes task force is investigating the incident.

It's frightening. A 15-year-old! We're not talking about old, bitter white men hardened by life (a stereotype, I know). This is a kid. What the hell is he doing screaming "white power"? Someone had to teach this kid to hate. And that is scary and ridiculous. That's racist!

UPDATE: Authorities have arrested a "person of interest" in connection with the attack: "Person of interest" arrested in hate crime stabbing. Aaron Duggan, 27, was arrested on a parole violation but is viewed by detectives as the "primary person of interest" in the hate crime stabbing that left a 22-year-old Asian man hospitalized in critical condition.

Imagine, you're walking down the street one evening, minding your own business, and you get attacked by these punkass "white power" shits. And these guys wanted to kill. The victim was stabbed in the face and torso. It's jacked. I hope they get what's coming to them.
