    NY - Timothy Caughman, 66, stabbed to death, NYC, 20 March 2017 *Arrest*

    I can't believe there isn't already a thread on this. Please merge if there is one.


    Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., today announced the indictment of JAMES JACKSON, 28, for fatally stabbing 66-year-old Timothy Caughman on March 20, 2017. JACKSON is charged in New York State Supreme Court with Murder in the First and Second Degrees as an Act of Terrorism, Murder in the Second Degree as a Hate Crime, as well as three counts of Criminal Possession of a Weapon.

    James Jackson prowled the streets of New York for three days in search of a black person to assassinate in order to launch a campaign of terrorism against our Manhattan community and the values we celebrate,” said District Attorney Vance. “Last week, with total presence of mind, he acted on his plan, randomly selecting a beloved New Yorker solely on the basis of his skin color, and stabbing him repeatedly and publicly on a Midtown street corner. James Jackson wanted to kill black men, planned to kill black men, and then did kill a black man.

    A Man Who Hated Black Men Found a Victim Who Cared for Others


    "By all accounts, Timothy Caughman, 66, was a benevolent man content with an unassuming life. He lived in a former single room occupancy residence that had been his longtime home. The son of a home health care aide and a pastor, he had worked in antipoverty programs in Queens. Religion and philosophy were constants in his conversations over unhurried meals of turkey bacon and grits at local diners. In recent years, he had caught the familiar New York infatuation with celebrities and delighted in collecting their autographs and pictures."

    "The Army veteran who fatally stabbed a 66-year-old black man in New York last week said that he carried out the crime to express his intolerance of white women dating black men and to stop them from entering interracial relationships. "

    Sean Spicer refuses to acknowledge NYC stab victim Timothy Caughman's murder as hate crime:

    White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer sidestepped questions Monday over the murder of Timothy Caughman, refusing to acknowledge it as a hate crime and using questions over the heinous slaying to defend people on the "right" he said were blamed too quickly for a recent wave of anti-Semitic threats.

    I'm amazed the killer didn't have a gun.
