Hate Crime in NYC, But It's Ok Ya'll

Quote:
Since he was a boy he has hated black men. A bitter hatred of black men that boiled in his mind and consumed him. Then last week, apparently, he decided to kill them.

This was the mind-set investigators say they gathered of James Harris Jackson, a morose and seemingly directionless 28-year-old white man who lived in Baltimore and had been having trouble getting rooted since leaving the Army. He had registered few obvious traces of who he was and what he stood for. Those who intersected with him found him to be a disagreeable and solitary figure who waved away contact with others.

By all accounts, Timothy Caughman, 66, was a benevolent man content with an unassuming life. He lived in a former single room occupancy residence that had been his longtime home. The son of a home health care aide and a pastor, he had worked in antipoverty programs in Queens. Religion and philosophy were constants in his conversations over unhurried meals of turkey bacon and grits at local diners. In recent years, he had caught the familiar New York infatuation with celebrities and delighted in collecting their autographs and pictures.

On St. Patrick’s Day, Mr. Jackson boarded a bus in Washington and rode it to New York. There were black men everywhere, and he told investigators he contemplated going elsewhere, but settled on New York because of the flood of media there. His goal was to draw the widest possible attention to his murderous plan.

He made his statement of what hate looks like late on Monday night when the authorities said he pulled out a sword and fatally stabbed Mr. Caughman. He had been scavenging for cans in Midtown Manhattan around the corner from his home.

The attack comes at a particularly anxious moment in America as hate crimes are on the rise in the country and especially in New York City. Both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo forcefully condemned the killing.

At the arraignment, Joan Illuzzi, the prosecutor, said that Mr. Jackson was particularly offended by black men who were with white women. She told the judge that additional charges may be filed, including murder in the first degree, “as this is an act, most likely, of terrorism.”

Sam Talkin, Mr. Jackson’s defense lawyer, declined to comment on the specifics of the case. “We just need for the dust to settle,” he said. If the information put forth by the authorities is accurate, he added, they will have to deal with Mr. Jackson’s “obvious psychological issues.

But he was blunt about his prejudices when questioned by detectives. According to a law enforcement official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity since the investigation is continuing, “He told the cops, ‘I’ve hated black men since I was a kid. I’ve had these feelings since I was a young person. I hate black men.’”

Mr. Jackson told detectives, according to the official, that his intention was to keep on killing, the first attack being a springboard. At one point during his interrogation, he said he thought about grabbing a police officer’s gun and using it to shoot others.

This is the part where someone says Trump's disgusting rhetoric is irresponsible for enabling the violent acts of racist scumbags

Bad week for news, health care bill takes up headlines which reduces this to "local news"

I have CNN, MSNBC, Fox news, BBC and Stripes on rotation about three times a day and I didn't see anything

I really wish we would quit baiting each other, on both sides

Most things have a logical explanation usually involving both time and money

Re: Hate Crime in NYC, But It's Ok Ya'll

I mean, any defense lawyer of this murder will probably spout the same bullshit just like you bolded there, so that isn't really that surprising. Regardless, yeah this doesn't really have much to do with any psychological problems or mental issues. This guy is a murder, plain and simple, and a racist one at that, and really that's the gist of it.

Mercifully he was caught before he went on a rampage and killed many black men and women.

Re: Hate Crime in NYC, But It's Ok Ya'll

Trumps' rhetoric is responsible for racist scumbags and their violent actions, while Islamophobia, not Islam itself, is the reason behind all these terrorist attacks and honour killings. Interesting.
Any Trump supporter with a brain has denounced this and other hate crimes. You'd expect that it'd be similar for Muslims too.

Re: Hate Crime in NYC, But It's Ok Ya'll

What's the issue here? Are you nitpicking with what you want to draw attention to? Don't tell me you missed this bit here... "The attack comes at a particularly anxious moment in America as hate crimes are on the rise in the country and especially in New York City. Both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo forcefully condemned the killing."

Is it about the claims of mental health issues? Because they wouldn't be wrong. I think we would all agree you'd have to be a bit mental (to say the least) to hate people because of the colour of their skin, especially if you go to the extent of wanting to kill them. If you expect it, do you think the law will be lenient with him because of the language used in the article, or because he is white? Most would be against that.

Re: Hate Crime in NYC, But It's Ok Ya'll

There's no media attention because he didn't use a gun. If he used a gun there is a media frenzy.

There isn't much to debate either. The guy is a horrible person. He's been arrested. He's probably going to get life in prison.

As for the quote by the defense lawyer, his job is to do what's best for his client. What else can he possibly go with to help his client other than the mental illness line? The guy obviously did it. The police didn't do anything wrong to get evidence suppressed. Mental illness is all he has to work with.
