“I agree with them, I am a liberal democrat. I have always been a Democrat. But I’m slowly turning the other way because there is so much hate, “he said.
“I’m slowly starting to see the other side because these people are anti-American.
“Now I have to pay to put up a fence. Because I don’t know what these people are going to do. They burned down shops and tore houses. ‘
Mark claimed that his niece did not live in the house, despite Deana telling DailyMail.com that she regularly saw her come and go from the property.

Deana told DailyMail.com that she had also heard hate speech from other neighbors on quiet Martinez Street.
“I’ve heard our neighbors use very derogatory words. I’ve heard them say really bad things. It’s very quiet, so you can hear people shouting, “she said.
“A neighbor, his wife caught him cheating and she called him an ‘n *** er lover’.”
Deana said she was shocked by the racist language and said she was very aware of being a minority on the predominantly white street.
“We don’t even have one black neighbor in this neighborhood,” she said. “There is none. I think the closest a Spanish family is around the corner. Not a single African American person.
“As a Latin American woman, a Latina, I disagree [with Anderson and Nelson]. Even now I try to keep my distance. I never really spoke to her or her partner.
“It is a pity that in 2020 people will still have this opinion, especially with everything that is happening in the world. And that they think it is very sad, ”she said.
