A woman arrested for vandalizing Comfort Women memorial in California

AKP STAFF



A 65-year old woman named Jackie Rita Williams has been arrested for defacing and vandalizing a Comfort Women memorial statue located in Glendale, California.

She is currently arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism. The footage of her defacing the memorial shows her knocking over plants as well as drawing on the statue. She is also seen drawing on the statues face using a permanent marker and setting a pot on the statue's head. 

Her actions may also be connected to other actions of vandalism around the city according to authorities. A motive is yet to be announced but has grown as a larger issue to the point where major Korean news outlets are also reporting on the incident.

i need to know the motive behind this because i really cant understand how as a woman she could do something like this i watched an interview documentary with a surviving comfort woman and everything she described that happened to her or other women who were in the camp at the time were enough to leave me horrified and in tears for how they were treated and absolutely disgusted that humans can treat other humans as less than animals especially women who cant defend or protect themselves the comfort woman in the interview was a child when she was taken she said she was only 14 at the time and literally raped everyday multiple times i dont understand how as a woman she cannot feel some type of pity or pain for what happened to those women back then and im not even Asian and my heart was broken listening to the unimaginable horrors and atrocity they went through
