Victim of a Hate Crime? We Want to Know
The FBI's New Haven Division and Connecticut State Police released a public service announcement asking victims of hate crimes to report it. Speakers include Special Agent Sean Yan, Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, forensic expert Dr. Henry Lee, Connecticut State Trooper First Class Luke Larue, and David Sundberg, special agent in charge of the FBI in Connecticut.
My name is Sean Yan. I’m a supervisory special agent with the FBI.
I have been with the FBI for 17 years and can assure everyone in the Asian community that we will investigate all reports of hate crimes rigorously and without hesitation.
We can't help if we don't know.
Please contact your local police or call 1-800-CALL-FBI or visit tips.fbi.gov.
We realize that many crimes in our Asian communities aren’t always reported for many reasons.
I am William Tong. I am the attorney general of Connecticut. If you are a victim of a hate crime, we need you to report it to us.
I am Dr. Henry Lee. I want everyone in the Asian community to know that you do not have to live in fear of reporting crimes committed against you. In the event that you become a victim of a crime, report it to police as soon as possible.
I have served in law enforcement for 60 years and have investigated many cases in conjunction with the FBI and police departments. So, I hope you will report in case you become a victim of crime regardless if it’s verbal, physical, or being bullied. You can report it all. They will help you.
So, I hope you are aware and be careful. We want to live a peaceful life.
My name is Trooper First Class Luke Larue and I am a Filipino American. And as a Connecticut State Trooper, I want to relay to all members of our Asian communities that you report a suspected hate crime immediately. The sooner we are aware of such crimes, the quicker we can pursue the criminals and b ring them to justice.
I’m David Sundberg. And I’m the special agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the state of Connecticut. If you or a loved one have been a victim or a witness to a hate crime, we want to know.
