A San Francisco police officer was taken to the hospital last week after being rescued from an attack by a man who was allegedly making racially-motivated threats against Asians.
“The incident took place on Friday,” CBS San Francisco reported. “A law enforcement source says the 911 caller who reported him as a disturbance that day had called the day prior, stating that the suspect said ‘I specialize in killing Asian people.’”
Video of the incident shows the police officer approaching the man – who repeatedly claimed that he did not have any weapons on him – and telling him to turn around and place his hands on his head. It initially appeared as though the man was complying with the officer’s orders, but he quickly became agitated and began attacking the police officer. The man wrestled the female officer to the ground and attacked her. Within just a few moments, several men rushed to the officer’s aid and helped gain control
