Justice for Alexian Lien Family

$780 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 42 months

Father, Alexian Lien, was violently attacked by a large group of bikers on September 29th, 2013. Reportedly 20 - 30 Bikers stalked, followed, damaged, and surrounded Lien's vehicle for four harrowing minutes until he was forced to stop in traffic. The group of bikers then forcibly drug him out of his vehicle and beat Lien in font of his wife and 2 year old daughter. When police arrived the bikers had fled the scene and Lien was found face down on the concrete. A knife was used to slash his tires and assault Lien's face.

Please support Lien and his family through this time of distress. A group of people put their life into chaos, now a different group of people can help them work on getting back to normalcy. Vehicle repairs, medical bills, and cost of repairing emotional physiological damage on Lien, his wife, and their 2 year old daughter will all become a financial burden. The repercussions following this event will not all be monetary related. So this page is not here only to raise monetary support. But also to bring awareness to the Lien Family situation and help gain public support in finding them justice.

I am a random person of society who was touched by Mr. Liens situation and feel the need to share his courage and find more support for him publicly. By you visiting this page, I know you are too. We have already contacted some of Mr. Lien's former and current employers, as well as major news organizations in his locale. The goal and only option will be to find a secure method of delivering the money to the Lien Family, while respecting their needed privacy. If you can do anything to help in this manner, please do!

Edit: A facebook support page was started for Mr. Lien and his family. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Justice-for-Alexian-Lien-Family/345591448911012

First public response by the Lien Family:
"Our plan last Sunday was to celebrate our wedding anniversary by having a nice family day out with our two-year-old daughter. Unfortunately, instead, we were placed in grave danger by a mob of reckless and violent motorcyclists.

"Our sympathies go out to the injured motorcyclist and his family. However, we were faced with a life-threatening situation, and my husband was forced under the circumstances to take the actions that he did in order to protect the lives of our entire family. Our fear for our lives was confirmed when the incident ended with the ruthless and brutal attack on my husband, me, and, most importantly, our two-year-old child. We know in our hearts that we could not have done anything differently, and we believe that anyone faced with this sort of grave danger would have taken the same course of action in order to protect their family.

" We would like to thank the brave citizens who risked their own safety to intervene on our behalf. They truly helped save our lives and prevented my husband from suffering further injury. We also appreciate and are moved by the outpouring of love and support so many have expressed here in New York and around the country.

" We would ask that the public and the media to respect our privacy at this difficult time and allow my husband to recover from his injuries. From here on forward we would ask that any further inquiries regarding this unfortunate incident be directed to our lawyers Nicholas J. Massimo and Frank C. Panetta."

I hope justice would be served. May those who harmed Alex's family suffer the consequences and pay for the damages to his vehicle. May Alex and his family be safe and not be held liable for anything at all.

Fight! Don't seek a middle ground. More is riding on your shoulders than just money and possessions. Fate or whatever you believe in, chose you for this or it was random. Either way, it's a rough situation. The best way is to win peace is to wage war and fight. These ppl have no shame, no honor, and no dignity. They will not appreciate anything you give them. FIGHT! Realize you were targeted for who you are and what you look like. Fight so your daughter won't be targeted too.
