‘Enough is enough’: Oakland Chinatown leader calls on Newsom to declare state of emergency over string of violent crimes
A community leader in Oakland’s Chinatown has urged Gov. Gavin Newsom to declare a local state of emergency to help end violence in the neighborhood and across the city.
Background: The Chinatown has suffered a series of violent crimes in recent months, many of which targeted Asian Americans. As recently as Saturday, a daylight robbery near the corner of 8th and Franklin Streets left a Good Samaritan with gunshot wounds.
Local authorities are on the lookout for a pair of burglars who ransacked a home in Norwalk, California on Friday afternoon.
The still unidentified robbers, who stole valuables and harmed the house pets with insecticide, were captured on video despite their attempts to disable the home’s security cameras.
