FALLOUT! SUPPORTERS OF PALMS HATE CRIME REVEALED!!
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.), the definition of a Hate Crime is a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation”. Succinctly put, a Hate Crime is committing a crime ‘with harmful, negative, racial intent… racial animosity, or racial animus’.
On March 4, 2015, an unprovoked White man was eye-witnessed and caught on camera engaging and committing a hate crime. First, the unprovoked White man physically and violently attacked a Black man, in a parking lot, after a meeting of the Palms Neighborhood Council (PNC). Moments later, that same unprovoked White man was witnessed and caught on camera racially assaulting a Black woman. During the unprovoked White man’s attacks, it was caught on camera and recalled by witnesses that the attacker used ‘hate language’ which included ‘harmful’, ‘negative’, and racially disparaging terms that were prefaced by the word ‘Black’. It was publicly revealed on May 6, 2015, during a Palms Neighborhood Council meeting, by Palms Neighborhood Council Treasurer Nick Greif, that the unprovoked White man was Lee Wallach of the Motor Avenue Improvement Association, Motor Avenue Foundation, and Motor Avenue’s Farmer’s Market.
As this matter devolved into litigation, legal declarations were submitted to the Superior Court of California on behalf of and in defense of Lee Wallach’s violent actions. These declarations were used to defend and justify Wallach’s racially motivated attacks, assault, and hate crime. Since their submission, these declarations have been revealed to either be false, or submitted by people who did not witness the violence that took place on March 4, 2015.
The following pictures are of people whose names, in one way or another, appear in written declarations submitted to the Superior Court of California, SUPPORTING the hate crime, violent attack, and racial assault against non-violent Black People.
Again, the following people DID NOT support the victims who were attacked. These people’s names are in documents that were used to SUPPORT the, eye witnessed and recorded, hate crime, attack, and assault committed by Lee Wallach…
