  'A collective trauma': Asian Americans confront mental health crisis amid rise of racist attacks Asian Americans, especially the elderly, are battling the mental health toll of a recent wave of racial attacks.Within moments, two Asian American women, one in her 80s and another in her 60s, were stabbed -- neither fatally -- at a bus stop near their outdoor shop. And while authorities said there wasn’t enough evidence to charge Patrick Thompson, 54, with a hate crime, that the May 4 attack came on the heels of a wave of anti-Asian American attacks and incidents was disconcerting.

Meanwhile, a GoFundMe for the other victim of Jenkin’s attack that day, Ngoc Pham, 83, has raised more than 2,000. The fundraiser, organized by the Community Youth Center of San Francisco CYCSF, noted: “(Ngoc) has always had a positive outlook on life as a result of him surviving 17 years in a Vietnamese concentration camp.”

"There is evidence that this was a planned, premeditated act motivated by hate. We believe the victims were targeted because of their Islamic faith," London Police Deputy Superintendent Paul Waight told reporters on Monday.

Sana Yasir, who is described as a "very close family friend" to the victims for the past 12 years, created the fundraiser four days ago as a form of sadaqa jariya, an important concept within Islam in which Muslims give to charity in memory of the deceased.

Yasir told Newsweek she's been shocked by how many people have contributed to the GoFundMe. She said while she started it locally for those in the London area who wanted to help, the campaign has since gone worldwide and has received donations from people living in the U.K., U.S. and Pakistan, among other places.

Turkish mafia boss dishes dirt, becomes YouTube phenomenon

  Turkish mafia boss dishes dirt, becomes YouTube phenomenon ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — From alleged drug trafficking and a murder cover-up to weapons transfers to Islamic militants, a convicted crime ringleader has been dishing the dirt on members of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling party through a series of tell-all videos that have captivated the nation and turned him into an unlikely social media phenomenon. Sedat Peker, a 49-year-old fugitive crime boss, who once openly supported Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party, has been releasing nearly 90-minute long videos from his stated base in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, making scandalous but yet-unproven drip-by-drip allegations, in an apparent bid to settle scor

Follow RT on. We hear so much in woke Britain about ‘ hate crime ’ and how terrible it is. But right now, we’re in the midst of an extremely nasty campaign against those who don’t wish to take a Covid vaccine and somehow that’s deemed acceptable. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill , to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one

What I learned from the Swiss HAT program is that the act of doing drugs itself isn’t a significant source of societal problems compared to the crime resulting from desperate addicts trying to get more drugs and crime organizations who profit from the black market. They gave addicts free heroin and housing and it cut crime , drug use and death in half.

"It's crazy to think how much people are supporting this, even people who don't know the family or aren't event from London, they didn't even hesitate to donate," she said on Friday. "It truly means a lot."

"Especially seeing that non-Muslims are donating to this and sending messages of love and support that they're there for us, that really means a lot because it means people who are not Muslim recognize this as a hate crime," Yasir added. "The London community and every community all over the world is with us. They're standing with us against Islamophobia."

The Afzaal family has indicated that they are not in need of financial assistance for the funeral expenses but said the donations will go to helping Fayez in the future as well as other charity organizations, which immediate family members will choose at a later date. There will be an announcement once the decision is made.

In vigil remembering Canadian Muslim family, a vow that 'this is our city'

  In vigil remembering Canadian Muslim family, a vow that 'this is our city' In vigil remembering Canadian Muslim family, a vow that 'this is our city'LONDON, Ontario (Reuters) - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined several thousand mourners in a vigil Tuesday evening to remember three generations of a Canadian Muslim family killed in what police said was a premeditated hate crime, as a grieving community stood united in the midst of the crisis.

Not Americans who've been killed by the virus, that's a huge number, but how many Americans have died after getting the vaccines designed to prevent the virus? Do you know the answer to that question? Many thousands of other people appear to have been injured after getting the vaccine. VAERS records nearly 900 non-fatal heart attacks in people who just received the shot. 2,700 people reported unexplained chest pain. In all, the vaccine, according to the government reporting system, appears to have contributed to at least 8,000 hospitalizations.

(Natural News) According to government data published at VAERS.hhs.gov, just 82 people died in 2020 after being vaccinated. But so far in 2021, there are 3,317 deaths that have been reported following covid-19 vaccinations. That’s an increase of nearly 4000%, and we’re barely into the second quarter of 2021 (versus My well-educated guess is that right now, covid-19 vaccines have likely killed around 50,000 Americans. This puts the covid vaccine on par with the number of Americans killed in the entire Vietnam War. That makes sense because the vaccine industry is waging war on humanity, and by the

"We understand that there is little we can do to ease the grief and trauma that Fayez and his extended family are going through, but we started this GoFundMe campaign to raise money so that the family can donate on behalf of the deceased," the fundraiser reads.

Yasir said local businesses have also partnered with the campaign and have donated their proceeds to the fundraiser. She said that two London locations of the multinational fast-food chain Tim Hortons have made custom donuts and have donated all the money from those items to the GoFundMe.

A second fundraiser created on LaunchGood has also raised more than $1,100 as of Friday afternoon. Both campaigns have received the support and consent of the victims' family and by the London Muslim community.

The suspect in the attack, 20-year-old Nathaniel Veltman, has been arrested and charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder. He appeared briefly in court on Thursday and is expected back on June 14.

"Islamophobia is real and it happens everywhere," Yasir said. "We saw it in New Zealand and we said, 'No it doesn't happen here in London.' We saw it in Quebec and we said, 'No it doesn't happen here in London.' When it happens here at home, it's like wow, you're not safe. It can happen anywhere, to anyone."

Why cities can expect 2020's violent crime spike to last .
Failing to connect the dots between depolicing, decarceration and crime, many jurisdictions continue to adopt measures that may make things worse.There is no doubt that the United States, by and large, became more aggressive in its approach to rising violent crime during the 1980s and '90s. One could argue that, in some ways, the pendulum swung into the territory of an overcorrection, which understandably fueled calls for a more measured, less punitive approach. Those calls have been largely heeded in jurisdictions across the country over the last decade.
