Donnie Chin was murdered from shots fired by a gun. That is the damn issue here, another human life lost by a gun-toting killer. The Asian Pacific American communities need to step up to the National Rifle Association (NRA) and demand that they support GUN CONTROL. To NRA members, keep guns to protect your family—don’t allow gang members to acquire guns to kill our family.
Hidden from the public is that justice isn’t being done in the murder of Donnie Chin by gunfire. The International District violence didn’t just happen with this shooting. If the public only knew the daily violence that occurs down here throughout the daylight hours into the morning mist, they would be shocked.
Oh! How nice to close up hookah lounges, Oh! Just a minute, they’re open again. Oh! The King’s Lounge is closed, Oh!, just a minute, they are open again.
Every day the headlines highlight the problems of the owners of hookah lounges who claim they are being targeted because they are black. The NAACP jumps on the issue of racial discrimination. DONNIE CHIN was shot by gunfire while in his car. Where in the hell are the suspects? That is the issue.
Donnie gave his life to keep his neighbors in his neighborhood safe. That did not work, the International District Neighborhood is not safe. The man who patrolled his neighborhood 24/7 died because there isn’t and there hasn’t been the proper attention paid by the Seattle Police Department presence in his neighborhood. Donnie, while on patrol would be confronted by street people trespassing in the Danny Woo Garden. He would alert the patrol offices if he saw one of the many car break-ins in the Inter*Im parking lot, the break-ins and looting of offices in the non-profit organizations, the assaults on unsuspecting victims to the district, the fights, the stabbings, the gunfire. Oh! By the way! Donnie got shot to death, where are the shooters?
As of this moment there are plans under way to draft a resolution to be presented to the board of directors of the National Coalition of Asian Pacific Community Development (CAPACD) calling for tougher gun control laws to be signed by member non-profit organizations that produce housing in Asian ethnic communities throughout the country.
CAPACD will meet Sept. 28- Sept. 30, 2015, in Washington DC. (end)
