Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis will be holding a press conference today regarding charges in the March 16, 2021 shootings at three spas in Atlanta.

Police have not released the names of the victims nor indicated any possible motive of the suspect but at least four were of Korean descent, South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said in statement Wednesday. Authorities also told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that six of the eight victims appeared to be Asian women.

The killings came amid a recent wave of attacks against Asian Americans that coincided with the spread of the coronavirus across the United States.

  1. Shoulda thrown the hate-crime charge at bobert terran schlong(never get his name right, its more disrespectful)

  2. “In northwest Alaska, kunlangeta “might be applied to a man who, for example, repeatedly lies and cheats and steals things and does not go hunting, and, when the other men are out of the village, takes sexual advantage of many women.” The Inuits tacitly assume that kunlangeta is irremediable. And so, according to Murphy, the traditional Inuit approach to such a man was to insist he go hunting, and then, in the absence of witnesses, push him off the edge of the ice.”

    1. Damn, look at the little tangent of sociopaths you’ve fostered in this comment’s replies. Congrats, maybe you can all network to stay safe during all of this, lol.

    2. @Arcade Pilot I think every one is better off when a person is allowed to pay for their crimes.
      and not have other people pay for their crimes

    3. @Anton 711 Yeah, people should pay for their crimes, but this is America. Maybe you could run for office and change the criminal justice system, but I don’t think so, you’ll find the number of sociopath justice warriors is actually very small, even though you all seem to find each other online to stroke each others violent authoritarian fantasies.

    4. @Anton 711 So let me get this straight, you want law, order, and justice… but you don’t want to pay for it? Right. Got it.

    5. if you brake down a door and steal 
      a tv, get caught and found gutty; yes I think you should have to make restitution.

    1. maam, words have meaning and every crime should be prosecuted based on the facts of that crime.

  3. Can’t believe that cop said he was having a bad day lmao. Next time I’m having a bad day I’m gonna blow up the world.

    1. not this shite again. The cop was reporting what the suspect said when getting caught. Did you also get mad at the news for report for it too ?

    2. he was having a bad day. lol that comment from that dude was ridiculous indeed.

  4. the most impressive thing about this press conference is her ability to pronounce all those asian names

  5. I’ll be honest, I forgot this happened because the media constantly barrages us with bad news, and in response I’ve just become quite apathetic.

    1. True. America spends so much time and effort defending the lives of blacks due to the ire. However, if you look at all cases, not condoning any death but, those blacks who were killed by cops were in one way or another in trouble with the law. These Asian women and the white couple were innocent hard working folks. Not enough time and attention is spent on the complete innocent victims. Either way, this low life doesn’t get to live if he deemed 8 innocent lives didn’t get to live.

  6. This is the first time hearing this woman speak, but she seems quite competent and her answers are firm and rational. Kudos.
