Sufferer of Excessive-Profile Assault in San Francisco Strikes Again to China

Rongxin Liao, 87, will take a flight this Saturday back to Guangzhou, Guangdong on a one-way ticket, his son, Jing Liao, confirmed with The Standard. Rongxin Liao plans to spend the rest of his life there. 

“It’s too dangerous here,” Jing said in Cantonese. “Public safety situation in San Francisco has become worse and worse.”

Jing said the family reached a consensus to move Liao back to China, and Liao’s younger son, who is Jing’s brother and living in China, will take care of him.

Chinese-language newspaper Sing Tao Daily first reported the story about Liao’s farewell dinner with some of his elder friends in Chinatown on Sunday.

Liao was the victim in a high-profile case in 2020, in which surveillance video footage showed an attacker violently jump-kicking Liao, who was in his walker, to the ground. Liao appeared in court multiple times, asking the judge to sentence the attacker to a harsh punishment.
