    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.

    Definitely not a crime of indifference.

  3. 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. 🙄

    • I couldn’t describe it better.

      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.

      @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.

      @Constituent A People were SHOT but not killed, SEVERAL non-Asians were shot, 2 died

    • 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” 🤦‍♀️

  4. 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?

  5. It’s good to see a leader that leads you can tell she cares about people.

    this man is a killer with intent

  8. had preferred you told “bad day cop” to take a seat.. and spoke up then.

    If it quacks and walks like a duck it is a duck🤬🤬🤬hello!!

    • 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.

  11. ALL murders are hate crimes.

    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.

  14. 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.

    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.

  16. Mayor Bottoms? I thought she would be a mayor top.🤣🤣🤣

  17. absolutely this is a hate crime, this is targeted.
