Balbir Singh Sodhi. Five years later.

It’s sad that with all the major news coverage and reflection on television marking the five year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, not even the slightest coverage was given to Balbir Singh Sodhi. Sodhi was the first known hate crime victim loosing his life on 09/15/01 being shot to death by Frank Roque.

Luckily I was able to capture this news piece which was documented by ANI’s South Asia Newsline.

Balbir Singh Sodhi. Five years later.

In recent news, the Arizona Supreme Court removed Roque from Death Row ruling due to his low IQ and suffereing from mental illness.

Upon his arrest for killing Sodhi in 2001, Roque shouted "I am a patriot!" and "I stand for America all the way!"
