Supervisor Hahn Releases Statement on Hate Crime against San Pedro resident

San Pedro, CA – Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement regarding a recent incident in San Pedro in which a Black family’s car was vandalized with a swastikas and a racial slur.

“Few of us can imagine the fear and anger that Mr. Scott and his family are feeling after this most recent attack. Both as Supervisor and as a resident of this community, I am outraged and saddened that one of our neighbors could be targeted in such a vile way. My thoughts are with the Scott family.

In San Pedro and in all of LA County, everyone belongs and everyone deserves to live in peace. I understand the LAPD Harbor Division is working hard to identify the perpetrator of this hate crime so that they can be held accountable.”
