Neighbors Set Up Nightly Watch to Stop Racist Harassment

Has it really come down neighbors setting up watch outside our homes to deter racist harassment? Yes.

Neighbors Help Stop Harassment Of Asian American Family
In the Orange County community of Ladera Ranch, neighbors have been taking nightly shifts to protect a local family from a series of ongoing anti-Asian attacks. Home security video shows teens running up to Haijun Si's home, pounding on the door and at times flashing light in the camera to prevent them from being identified. Si says others have thrown rocks at the home, hurled racial insults, and left pornography at her front door. Police have apparently been called to the home several times, but the attacks have persisted. The only thing that's helped has been neighbors, organized through social media, setting up camp outside the home to deter the harassment. Has is really come to this?
