Protesters rally against probation in stabbing of 94 year old

A tense situation outside the San Francisco Hall of Justice with about five dozen demonstrators outraged at the probation given to a man who stabbed a 94-year-old Asian woman.

On the opposite side were about a half dozen defense attorney defending the judge’s decision.

“We want to make sure that our Asian seniors have the ability to walk down the street safely in our city,” said District Attorney Brook Jenkins who’s office had asked the judge for a 12-year sentence.

Judge Kay Tsenin, however, sided with the defense attorney who argued the defendant Daniel Cauich cried when he realized what he did and that mental health conditions and trauma sparked his actions, the SFist reported.

Judge Tsenin ordered him to undergo rehabilitation and heavy supervision. She sentenced Cauich to five years supervised probation.

“Do you care about Asian people?” shouted protested Jade Tu to one of the counter-protesters.

Cauich stabbed Anh-Ping Taylor multiple times in broad daylight in 2021. Peng had been taking a stroll in lower Nob Hill. The incident happened during the height of anti-Asian violence.

After the attack, prosecutors said Pang could barely go out of the house for fear for her safety. She is now 97 years old.
