Jamie Bezanson attacks elderly Chinese man with severe dementia - Update II

Jamie Bezanson The Globe and Mail has picked up the story and Mr Bezanson is now receiving nation-wide attention. This observer feels no need to crucify the man. There might have have been no incident at all, save for the final push that sent the 92-year-old to the ground. Mr Bezanson likely recognizes that push was a large error. The lesson the rest of us can take away from this is to live and let live, and keep your hands to yourself. Period.
VPD say they have identified the tuff guy caught on video after voluminous input from the public after the video was released. His name will not be revealed until charges are laid.

Police are searching for a man who assaulted a 92-year-old Chinese man with dementia last month in East Vancouver, in what is being called a hate crime. The elderly man wandered into the store and staff were attempting to help him when a man began yelling racist remarks that included comments about COVID-19. The attacker shoved the frail old man, which caused him to fall to the ground and hit his head on the concrete. He is recovering at home.
