  1. Here come the excuses

  2. Excuses, excuses. Anyway I’m sitting here waiting for someone to say he was ANTIFA or a black guy in white face… 🙄

  3. So his sexual disorder made him attack to Asian spas? No black spas, no white spas? Umm this is a target on a specific race no it’s and or buts.

  4. Either way, glad the authorities caught the SOB! R.I.P. to all the victims, condolences to their families.

    U.S. of Double Standard.

  6. And then we took him to Burger King before taking him to his bedroom / cell

    Diabetes, mental health, sexual addictions. Quit making excuses

  10. The shade thrown at Atlanta PD “We don’t have a lot of crime here in our area.”

    • Blaming the victims once again instead of holding the violators accountable. Racism is largely a white issue; created and perpetrated.

      I been to Atlanta, friendo. You got crime and you got a lot of it.

      That is BS. Not a lot of crime in Atlanta, sure. Make yourselves look good when NASCAR is coming into town.

  11. If they were Muslim you would not have heard none of this smh

    So he just cocked his gun to satisfy his sexual addiction that made a lot of sense. please don’t make excuses for this horrific hate crime committed by this criminal.

      @The GEICO gecko I don’t think it was an excuse. The police said this was his reasoning. Apparently it made sense to him, obviously no one else.

    • Its a violent crime, PERIOD!!

    • T. R. Campbell | March 17, 2021 at 9:53 PM | Reply

      @M18 Hellcat I don’t think it can get any more violent than homicide. Nobody is arguing with that. Homicide is about as bad as it can get and eight homicides is really, really bad.

    • He drove to 3 separate Asian owned parlors, one of the places being 30 miles away from each other. 6 out of the 8 victims being Asian women. His victims were at targeted establishments primarily owned/staffed by Asian people. If he wanted to “just target s*x workers” there were 1000s of strip malls and adult entertainment areas in that part of Atlanta.
      This is hate crime. Period

    • It’s not an excuse, it’s a reason. They said he claims a sexual addiction and that he frequented massage parlors. In other words, he went looking for a “happy ending”, and eventually snapped and shot up the place when they refused to give him one.

  13. I’m surprised they didnt say ” mental illness” afterall it’s a white guy

  14. Aaron Christoffersen | March 17, 2021 at 2:42 PM | Reply

    He enjoyed his happy endings so much he went on a murder spree… ? Wait what?

  15. Who needs a defense attorney when you have Atlanta police.

    • Dude don’t worry that guy’s going to get the maximum penalty no matter what they say about him

      The suspect has some sexual issues? Look at the ages of the women he killed. Most of them are in their late 50’s and 60’s. This is not sexually motivated. This is racially motivated!

      @Lalaine Nash I think he knows the reason more than you do

    • One Truth Media Company | March 23, 2021 at 3:37 AM | Reply

      Hes just telling them what the guy has said, hes not defending him

  16. If his family is distraught, just think how distraught the family members of the victims are. They deserve more mention than the perpetrator’s family, and should have received more solidarity from the authorities in their statement . The police are already making excuses for the murderer. This is social collusion.

    you kidding me with these tags? your takeaway here is “sexual addiction?”

  18. So, a “self-described” sexual addiction is now an excuse to commit mass murder ? … Hmmmm. 🔥

    “Sexual Addiction?”
    Has he NOT noticed ALL the resources on the internet?…
    ANY lie will do, I guess— once the police caught up with him quicker than he anticipated…

    Funny how they won’t discuss the case but they’re already claiming “he has some issues”
