The dude killed eight people in one night, most of whom were Asian. That’s really about all that needs to be said.

Agreed, but who brought it up?

I can’t recall. Somewhere I read someone be posting that it wasn’t a hate crime. I really don’t recall where without re-reading the thread.

Perhaps it was some comments that stated that Asians weren’t being targeted, even though they were definitely being targeted.

Regardless, I am off the understanding that a hate crime is a crime committed against an individual due to that individual’s specific demographic. Again, regardless, it’s irrelevant at the state level, as Georgia is one of the states that do not have hate crimes on the books, so if they were to charge on a hate crime, it would have to be a federal offense; however, as I mentioned, why bother? The dude is facing eight murder charges, and that doesn’t even add in the secondary and tertiary charges that prosecution will tack on.

I’d rather have a beer bottle in front of me than a pre-frontal lobotomy.
