As a long-time Compton resident I am sorry to hear about Sia Marie Xiong losing her life to senseless gun violence. We are praying for her son and family, however, it is hard to believe she was a victim of a “hate crime”.
If you live in the second district, you are well aware that her death occurred not too far from an area known for sex trafficking. No one can explain why she was out at nearly 6am in the morning.
Haven’t you noticed that none of the city’s leaders have spoken on this? Perhaps linking it to a possible hate crime, against an Asian, is an easy way out for the family to conclude why she was so far from her home, and her three-year old son.
Continue to pray for Compton.
