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. I smell fake news or a false flag attack. Probably domestic propaganda to get public opinion behind banning the 2nd amendment. Also they are getting public opinion against white males. What’s more, President Bidet’s body language signaled deceit. He had a smirk while addressing the nation. This is called Duper’s Delight in body language circles..

    2. I’m asian and I live in Atlanta. I don’t really know if this specific act of violence was rooted in racism or not. What I do know is nobody is talking about how the Asian women specifically Korean women that were killed were in the sex trafficking industry. Thats why i think only their identities are being withheld, because that would void their narrative of innocent business owners and employees victims of racism. The shooter said he was angry about his sex addiction which I don’t know why you have to kill anybody for your own addiction, but that may explain why he went to these specific establishments to carry out these heinous acts. The other facts are the two places where the Asian women were killed are in the red light district and known places of prostitution. They have been there as long as I have lived in Georgia at least 20 years with the same names and location. Why aren’t people outraged that these places even existed? Where are the signs denouncing sex trafficking? The people that died undoubtedly were the owner or owners of the spas and the trafficked sex workers. Obviously I don’t believe they should have lost their lives, but they should have never been there in the first place. It’s bad enough that I guess some of the people that did the trafficing probably died, but it’s really bad that a person forced to be there by trafficking being tortured already had to also die there. Call out the Atlanta police for letting these houses of prostitution for existing knowing very well what they are. What kind of deal did the police sent to these places cut, are they getting police getting paid to protect these places? How could they just go on for at least 20 years with the same names and location with no recourse. The majority of people that own these places are Asian with Asian trafficked workers please let the world know to help my Asian community get rid of this travesty.

    3. @James Kim wow, good point! Nobody is talking about this, and certainly not the media. Similarly, the media denounced Pizzagate as a conspiracy theory. Also, the media ignored the fact that officer Chauvin and George Floyd worked security at the same sex trafficking hub, and the media did not divulge the name of the “club” (hub). We are left to connect the dots on our own.

    1. @72marshflower15 The democratic, Republican, left, right crime syndicates owned and controlled by the same entities

    2. @Gus Althorp ~ there are no liberal political parties when they all operate on capitalism, a conservative construct, thus serving the Capital Establishment, a conservative entity.

      The US Capital Establishment is a conservative entity often referred to as “Deep State”.

      Political parties are proxies not beholden to any means. Hollow placebos even. Means the dems are just the controlled opposition of the gop. It’s why they always “lose”.

      I know what you mean to say though..

    3. @Gus Althorp p.s. conservatism accrues power as liberalism disperses it. It’s literally in the basic derivation of the terms themselves. Mean wall dictators and fascist states are conservative in nature.

      Historical examples of fascism are all accretive of power. Socialism and communism being liberal constructs, are dispersive of power. Means fascism has always been state capitalism, not socialism or communism.

      Communism was never a state, nor could it ever be. It’s just a state of mind found wherever people are helping each other. We find it in community, communion and communication.. hi

      The very act of y/our “Co”mm”Uni”cation is itself an act of “Co”mm”Uni”sm..

      We’re doing it now.. it shares the same derivation as “We the People”.

      They literally mean the same thing..

      It only hons under scrutiny..

  1. The suspect was able to get out of atlanta and over a hundred miles away before being arrested after killings at 3 locations. What are the Atlanta police department proud of? that is what I call incompetence.

    1. I’m sure the social workers would have prevented this altogether lol… These cops are fed up they can’t do their jobs properly with getting arrested now

    2. Well they may have thought it was a another BLM or Antifa riot so they followed the guides lines given to them by the liberal’s running that City (Stand Down)!

    1. @angel paige The lying, fake, corporate media. Spewing lies, disinformation and propaganda 24/7
      5 Corporations own and control 97% of the media in the U.S
      The 4th Estate is dead.

  2. The comment about the subject saying he was at the end of his rope and having a really bad day! They would NEVER say this about any other suspect of another race. Sounded like he was being justified. He’s a murderer no matter the reason!!!

    1. The police officer is giving a statement based on what the investigator told him about the suspects’ motive earlier that day so

  3. School shootings, movie theaters shootings, church shootings, concert shootings, Marathon bombing etc. You ain’t safe nowhere nowadays. Not ever in you owe house.

  4. Wow Atlanta police looked extremely weak he went to 3 places and didn’t get caught untill his parents called and gave more info make it make sense

    1. Korean pp, should gtfo out of the Deep South. They don’t care about Asians there, obviously. Come to LA

    2. Police can only make educated guesses of what he’ll do next police don’t instantly know once someone does something once or twice what the next move is it’s easier to catch someone if people close to them spill the beans. Most criminals get caught because someone snitched on them not because police beat them in mind chess.

  5. Wow they’re defending him, unbelievable. He just had a bad day! He was at the end of his rope! What else did you expect him to do??

    1. @TimBrown5000 Sheep? Good one! All that “thinkin’ fer yerself” sure has made ya wittier than all get out!

    2. Well that is the excuse they gave BLM for 2 billion dollars of tearing down peoples lives and 19 people murdered so maybe they feel stuck with that narrative!

    1. Death sentence basically only ends the perpetrators suffering. They can’t “just die” without any real responsibilities. Giving them life sentences will strip them of their freedom, thus effectively killing them (I mean, what’s life without freedom). Besides, killing these perpetrators will not bring the dead to life. Worse, those people accused maybe innocents. Killing 100 bad guys is never enough, but killing 1 innocent life is already too much.

      Just my honest opinion..

    2. That’s probably a good idea but don’t be surprised if they put him in jail and give a stimulus check.

  6. Humans can justify anything, that is where their wickedness and corruption begins.
    -Shinobu Sensui

  7. wtf! so he is having a bad day! how about those victims and those victims’ families! is the police department actually trying to justify him!!! I can not believe this is what happens in this country now!

    1. They might be trying to get him off on mentally insane..
      Just a thought for their excuse about having a bad day..
      It’s an odd thing for law enforcement to state to everyone..

  8. “Hitler had a bad few years. That’s why he killed 6 million Jews. Just a really rough time for Hitler. We can all relate” – Atlanta Police Spokesman

    “Al Qaeda was just having a really rough time. That’s why they attacked the WTC and the Pentagon. Just a really sad day for them” – Georgia State Police Spokesman

  9. The part of that everyone is talking about where he says “yesterday was a really bad day for him” is at 15:57.

    1. That guys needs to resign from position because he has been recorded calling covid the China flu and such. Basically spreading the hate against another culture and condoning it!

  10. Their excuse is stupid, “he had a bad day.” If I had a bad day I probably should drive around and run people over like GTA…

    2. @James Kim I am not from Georgia so I wouldn’t know that, thanks for informing me. That is a serious problem and require investigation to stop whats going on. Idk what the police are doing, if there are suspicion it needs attention.

  11. 20:20:
    Reporter asking a question:
    “Were the victims employees, or people?”
    ……. are employees not people?

    1. I love this Mrs Kurtis with his strategies and methods, I was able to withdraw $13,500 in a week, there is more to the system than the eye sees sometimes, sometimes this videos don’t really help much as they end up confusing you more. When I came across Mr Kurtis the confusion ended

    2. @Stock Moe
      Please how can I reach this Mr Kurtis I’ve already lost enough of money trading for myself

    3. I advise new and old invest investors to seek professional guidance and assistance an expert broker who understands the market in order to avoid unnecessary losses

  12. Why does she keep saying, ” on yesterday” it happen yesterday.. you could say “on” Tuesday or on a certain day, or date but “on yesterday”.. how is it your job to speak to the public but it sounds like your reading from a script with fill in the blanks and reading word for word
