    "Terrence Lavaron Thomas, 39, walked up to several people at a bus stop and engaged them in conversation
    He asked them if they were Muslim and two responded they were not
    Words were exchanged and then Thomas pulled out a knife and stabbed one man who said he was not a Muslim five times"

    'We are getting indications through my officers that the suspect was somewhat incoherent afterward, and so there's a question about his stability,' Hawkins said.

    JMO. I don't know why my perspective is the way it is, but like the murders in Chapel Hill, I don't see this as a hate crime. This seems like a disturbed man. I think religion was convenient, in the forefront, excuse. JMO

    Answered my own question:

    Sounds to me like a hate crime.

    Well let's see how the MSM runs with this one. Any marches in DC planned?

    From The Washington Post:

    Police: Man stabs two after asking about religious beliefs
    By Abby Ohlheiser February 17 at 4:38 PM

    The photo of Thomas looks like he is "not quite all there," consistent with the description from Yoda's post above quoting the Daily Mail as saying he was incoherent and there were some questions about his stability.

    He apparently is Muslim and not mentally stable. Both victims have been released from the hospital.

    From the Daily Mail article:

    Magistrate Eman Jajonie-Daman set Thomas’s bond at $1 million

    Is that typical? To me it seems ridiculously high but I have no idea.

    I don't know what's normal, but if he's mentally unstable and dangerous, it's probably best he stay put in jail for now.

    Definitely agree with that. I wondered if maybe it were atypical for this kind of crime but set high enough to ensure he doesn't go anywhere.
