Racist Torrance Park Lady Indentified!

And Other Things to Know From Angry Asian America.

Torrance Police Identify Woman Who Went on Anti-Asian Racist Tirades
Torrance police officially identified the woman at the center of a social media storm over racist, anti-Asian tirades caught on video as Long Beach resident Lena Hernandez, 56. By now, you've seen the videos. There was already a great deal of speculation about her identity, including another person getting erroneously named and disseminated widely. Officials held a press conference on Friday afternoon to clear things up, mostly likely due to the intense public reaction to these incidents. They've connected her to the two incidents, as well as another incident in October at a local mall. They're asking the community to call Torrance police at (310) 328-3456 with information on Hernandez's location or any other people who may have been attacked.
