'Looks Like A Hate Crime': Mayor Bottoms Calls For Accountability After Atlanta Killings


  1. Of course it was a hate crime. The guy drove 45 minutes after the first killings to go find more victims. That is not a crime of passion or opportunity.

  2. Murderer: “I did it because these women were tempting me.”

    So, he’s blaming the victims for the murders he committed. And the police are like, “Well, he was just having a really bad day.”
    Boy, sure is nice to be a white male in America.

    1. Too much ‘hate’ is used against women under the guise of women ‘tempting’ the men. It’s time ‘to man up’ and take responsibility for your own thoughts and action.

    2. @UCL30MgszHaVCq5cI7-_7U9w In what language does two equal “several”? Appears he was targeting Asians he presumed to be hookers, and a couple of people got in his way. The vast majority were Asian, and he did not seek out hookers of any other race.

    3. As old as creation, depending on your beliefs. Didn’t Adam try to excuse himself from eating the apple when god confronted him, “The woman tempted me”

  3. Why does it matter what he’s charged with, as long as it includes the death penalty. What’s the media’s narrative on this one?

    1. The investigation still active but this so called leader thinks she’s going to tell the people what to think….
      It works sometimes……as you can see…..

    2. @Dorothy Gears lol it’s ok for you to be confused also….
      A person is paranoid when they try to claim that asian Americans are being targeted…… So who’s paranoid?

    1. @Evan The good gun law is no gun at all. Why got to own a gun as civilians? Fight like a man, is only cowards, fake strength will like to use gun.

    2. @Ariana wright the best gun law is no gun law. Infringement is prohibited in the constitution…
      An unarmed citizen is a slave to a tyrant.

    1. Bert Balderas – It quacks and waddles like a crime against prostitutes perpetrated by someone with a dusturbed mind, who yes, snapped due to a “bad day” rather than executing a long thought-out plan.

  4. Mayor of Atlanta is always something good. I have seen her with covid-19. After shootings. And just now. A cool cucumber for sure. Amazing grace today.

  5. Xiao Zhen Zie is a 76 year old superhero!
    Mem Ian Drury’s Hit me with your rhythm stick with Xiao Zhen Zie whacking Trump, Long and Jenkins with her stick.

  6. YES, based on targeting women alone makes it a hate crime.
    Also, knowing most of his victims would be / were Asian also makes it a hate crime, even if it turns out his motives were more based in his sexual insecurities and frustrations than race.
