The rioting happened because of the uncertainly around the case when it happened. And you said "would have". He didn't murder anyone or confess to murdering anyone like the guy in this story.


There is nothing uncertain about a guy who intentionally drove somewhere, intentionally sought out his victim(s) and then turned himself in, confessing to the preceding events and murder. Not a single person would riot over that.

Not even close to the same thing.

Just log off for the day.

What a horrid, wretched man. How awful for Mr. Cavanaugh to be the one who crossed paths with that evil scum. RIP. May justice be swift.

(I threw in a few gratuitous eye rolls since you seem to like them so much..)

Have a nice day.
He's a point. Go and check somewhat latest thread where a guy in Kansas killed two indians thinking they were illegal. Some did suggest mental issues with the killer.

From the sounds of it, people will be offended regardless of what "angle" the media takes. Dude harbored negative feelings towards black people for 10 years. He acted out on it. That makes him a racist.

Though, usually the "crazed PTSD vet" angle is reserved for older vets who lasted longer than 3 years.

And the article you linked to showed that from 2009 to 2014, racially motivated crimes were (as a whole) steadily going down. But then 2015 shoots up extensively. I'm hoping they release the 2016 statistics soon because I would really like to see what it looks like in comparison to former elections.

True true man! I am sorry, but I don't buy that PTSD crap! There are plenty of people that have it and don't go around killing people.

The guy was clearly deranged. Who goes to NYC from Baltimore to kill black men?

A punk.
He attacked a defenseless, homeless, older black male from behind.
