On March 2011, in Vinita, Oklahoma, an ex-cop senselessly brutalized a Hmong man named Neng Yang, who accidently ran over and killed the ex-cop’s dog. Even though Mr. Yang apologized profusely and offered to pay for the dog, Mr. Yang was beaten until he was unrecognizable. He left with broken facial bones, broken ribs, and bruises.

The monster who attacked Mr. Yang claimed that he was only defending himself. This is an absurd lie. The ex-cop is 6’1” and 250lbs, who is seemingly double the size of Mr. Yang.

On October 3rd, there will be a 2nd hearing in the Vinita County Courthouse. However, the Courthouse has tried every way to stop the case from moving forward. It has denied Mr. Yang access to a translator. It has also denied his right to use his surgeons and doctors to testify in court as witnesses to his case. Their reason is that the medical evidence will cause “financial hardship” on the county.

In a town that is majority white, it is not surprising that such a racist attack would happen. Too many of these cases have happened to Asian people – Fong Lee being one. While bringing these issues to court is important, we should trust and rely on ourselves to build movements around problems such as police brutality to prevent these horrible crimes from happening again.
