Email: Remembering Heather Quan (1985-2006) [5.11.2022]

Although Ryan Waller was shot in the face (and ‘brain’) and survived with a severe brain injury for a number of hours afterwards (the Coroner stated Ryan’s jaw was broken after he was shot in the face – presumably when the Police tackled him to the ground upon arrest) – Heather Quan was shot in the head and immediately killed by the two Hillbilly-type characters who invaded their home on Xmas Day, 2006! Her story is always treated as subordinate to that of Ryan – and she only seems to exist (as a validation) via her association with Ryan (this is not the fault of Ryan or his family – but US society as a whole). It is nothing new – I know – but the day we stop caring about the racial bias is the day US anti-intellectualism finally triumphs through the removal of all obstacles to its dominance!
