(gasp) How horrible.

I am suspecting hate as a motive in this crime, too.

Let's not forget Mohammed Reza Taheriazar. Driving into the "Pit" of pedestrians at UNC wasn't terrorism or a hate crime either.

Check the headline at the news website of your choosing, Hube. Clearly a "hate crime" and being reported as such everywhere I've seen.

I think I've seen maybe one that even alluded to a hate crime so far, dan.

I'll just go right from the top on Google News.

Reuters: "FATAL JEWISH CENTER SHOOTING A HATE CRIME."

CNN: "SEATTLE PROTECTS TEMPLES, MOSQUES AFTER 'HATE' SHOOTINGS"

Daily Telegraph: "SIX GUNNED DOWN IN HATE CRIME"

Seattle PI column: "VIOLENT HATE CRIME IS ATTACK ON ALL OF US"

I could continue.

Well, that's good to know. I didn't see, as I said, but one early this morning.

I have to ask... was it just typical "blogger's hyperbole" or did you truly, honestly believe that this would not be classified as a hate crime by both the authorities and the media?

I just hope we do not see a repeat ANYWHERE.
This town just had a bunch of murders....what is going on? Is it the pollution filtering in from China across the Pacific? haha...not too funny I know...

I figured it would be eventually, dan. But it's usually always that "wait and see" attitude when it involves someone other than a white male.

Fair enough.
