Authorities have said Chou – a US citizen who worked for years as a security guard – was motivated by hatred of Taiwanese people documented in handwritten notes that authorities found. Spitzer said he is considering hate crime charges but needs more time to investigate.
The church shooting is now being investigated as a hate crime. The weird thing is that he was born in Taiwan.
Well, most murders are hate crimes unless they are just doing it for monetary reasons...
While I am in this thread, does anyone else regularly watch the local TV news?
I am amazed at the number of shootings, not always a murder, but the number of shootings that occur daily. I believe in the last 24 hours alone there were 6 different shootings and this the middle of the week.
This is exactly what I mean when I say some migrants may decide that the USA is not exactly the land of milk and honey they imagine it to be from movies. I didn't visit Latin America, but I have been to The Philippines. While Manila is clearly awful in certain neighborhoods, the smaller cities are surprisingly calm and orderly (except for the constant noise of motorized rickshaws) and not as scary as certain US cities. I also didn't see masses of homeless bums outside Manila and people didn't try to rob or scam me. Maybe most Latin American nations (except for the most violent ones like Venezuela, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Brazil) are similar in this way.Third world demographic, third world behavior. our cities are third world regions with receding pockets of first world holdouts.
