In February last year, Liao was waiting at a San Francisco bus stop in his wheelchair when Eric Ramos Hernandez allegedly ran up and brutally jump-kicked Liao, knocking him to the ground headfirst, causing him to black out an causing a blood clot. He had to get an operation to drill into his skull.

After release, Hernandez was arrested for trespassing, which Thursday’s judge stated was a non-violent misdemeanor. With Liao’s attack, Hernandez was charged with elder abuse and not a hate crime.
