Assemblymember Frazier adds voice to condemnation of hate crime in Antioch

Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) on Thursday, released the following statement concerning the hate crime that occurred in Antioch on Wednesday:

“The strength of our nation and state comes from the diversity of our people. We have had a terrible and reprehensible act occur in Antioch. As your State Assemblymember, I join you as we stand in absolute opposition to this racist and cowardly act. Let’s make sure the message is clear – We will not tolerate this behavior in our community. We will do everything in our power to make sure, those who commit injustices like this, are swiftly dealt with and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. As one East County community, by standing together tonight, we show that we must honor, respect and celebrate Californians of all backgrounds, faiths and beliefs.

It is through our diversity that we have strength, and fulfill the American promise that all people are created equal.

I stand ready and willing to assist our local leaders and law enforcement officials in any way possible.”

    Another politician jumping on the band wagon. Why didn’t Frazier speak up after the shooting on my street two weeks ago? We have a terrible gang problem, a junkie problem and a theft problem, but instead of helping to solves the issues that we actually face, he wants to use a terrible racially charged event to win votes. Actions speak a lot louder than words. It might look good for the cameras, but Frazier has failed to protect our community from the problems that we have to live with.

      Skip,
      Frazier had a representative at the press conference.
      His office emailed the press release before the press conference began.
