In the case down in south western VA, race was not the only factor in the murder of the victims.




The victims in the Charleston case were killed solely because they were black-- there wasn't another reason or justification.

Again, with the case in south western VA, there are clearly other factors involved. I am not saying race wasn't a factor, I am saying it wasn't the only factor, else he would have killed random white people, more white people-- he definitely had the time, capability and opportunity to kill more white people if that was his only motivation.

He was not solely motivated by race hatred.
JD, so race was a factor. All the acrobatics in your posts doesn't take away from the fact that the killer was motivated by his racism. You just don't want to deal with that portion, hence you are unwilling to just say "yes, the guy was always a racist" a nut job, psychological issues? Yes, but a RACIST with psychological issues.

But of course, that is why I pointed it out to you.

The killer was a racist.

Re: Another shooting!

More insight into this guy...

Again, saying he was simply a racist doesn't sum things up in this situation.

"On Wednesday, after killing Parker, 24, and Ward, 27, he went online to claim they had wronged him in the past."

So without the linguistic gymnastics...he WAS motivated (at least partly) by racial hatred.

Guys, I said this a long time ago-- back on page one of this thread.

I didn't call him that.
I said he came across as that in his post.

It (his post) was unnecessary (and inflammatory). Read it. I had already clearly addressed his initial question, he just didn't understand that I had. So he claimed I didn't answer his question.

Re: Another shooting!

It doesn't take mental gymnastics to comprehend that what happened in Charleston is a completely different kind of situation when compared with what happened in south western VA.

More linguistic gymnastics. It's the same thing. Saying someone comes across (is acting) like a d-bag is the same as calling them one.

He asked what you meant by "not solely" and "just racial." You really didn't answer the specific question he asked. You rambled about cops, the church shooting and your opinion of the news shooting, but didn't really answer the question he asked.

BTW, had the man not been tracked and caught by police, he may indeed have shot more people. He had six mags of ammo in his car, along with a to-do list, which hasn't been publicly disclosed. All signs show this guy didn't plan on stopping with killing just his two former co-workers.

We don't really know who he else he would have targeted if he hadn't been quickly found and cornered before killing himself.

Have I answered the initial question?
