Most of the Chinese American population generally calls for leniency for Officer Liang. However, some in the community have opposed leniency. Notably, New York City councilwoman Margaret Chin stated that she was satisfied with the grand jury indicting Liang. But on Feb 19 she issued a statement for ‘leniency’ in NYPD officer Liang’s sentencing . Likewise, Esther Wang of the CAAAV, a Chinese American organization, has also stated that she does not support leniency, a stance where she claimed that those who support Liang are hypocritical, basically saying that it is okay to continue the police brutality.
