Rep. Schiff statement on hate crime against Tujunga resident displaying Armenian flag

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) released the following statement after reports of a threatening note being left for a family in Tujunga because they hung an Armenian flag from their home, which is now being investigated by the LAPD as a possible hate incident:

“An act of hatred like that we saw in Tujunga this week has no place in our community, and I am deeply disturbed that someone would be threatened over their Armenian heritage, or for displaying an Armenian flag outside of their home. Coming so soon after the violence that claimed Armenian lives in Nagorno Karabahk and so close to the commemoration of the Armenian Genocide in just a few weeks, this act of hatred is all the more reprehensible. I’m glad that the LAPD is investigating it as a hate crime.”
