“There is an inherent risk … when you opt to take the law into your own hands,” McPhail said.

The crimes targeting Asians have followed a pattern: The victims are robbed and attacked just as they exit their vehicle in a parking lot or at home, according to police and witness accounts.

At least 10 suspects have been arrested in connection with the spate of crimes, but detectives have not released details or mugshots.

“We’re dealing with a very large geographic area,” McPhail said. “Because of that, we rely on members of the community to be our eyes and ears. That’s why it’s important to call us.”

Detectives are considering a hate-crime enhancement in some of the cases because the suspects clearly targeted Asians. However, whether an incident rises to become a hate crime can be difficult to determine, McPhail said.

“There is a fine line between picking people who you think might have money and targeting someone because you dislike them,” McPhail said.

Gabriel Chin, a professor at the UC Davis School of Law, said these incidents could be classified as hate crimes as long as the victim is targeted for race, ethnicity or nationality.

“Hate crime can be an independent offense,” said Chin, an expert in Asian American legal history. “If it takes course in a robbery, assault or murder, it operates as an enhancement of the sentence.”

Targeting Asians has historical roots, Chin said, citing a California statute from the 1800s that prevented Chinese from testifying against non-Chinese in a court of law. In essence, that meant “Chinese could be freely raped, robbed or murdered,” he said.

McPhail said police are aware of multiple rap songs that advocate targeting Chinese or Asians, including a song by the rapper YG with the lyrics, “Find a Chinese neighborhood, ’cause they don’t believe in bank accounts.”

Police have described the suspects as African American men, ages 18 to 25.

On Sunday night, more than 600 Asian Americans showed up at George Sim Community Center to voice their concern to city and police officials. Community leaders like Tom Phong, owner of Welco Supermarket, said they were heartened by the turnout and show of unity. Speakers took turns addressing the crowd in Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese and Hmong.
