The white killer of a New York City Negro, James Harris Jackson, is a U.S. Army veteran.
Thank you for your service, sir.
Jackson turned himself into police after killing a Negro with 11 prior arrests. The victim lived in a group home with other HIV+ persons.
It seems like a lot of these white racially motivated killers want to get caught. I recall when a certain white man named Charles Manson did everything possible to start a race war, while remaining low profile and free.
Manson to this day has never admitted anything. In contrast, Dylann Roof, the South Carolina church shooter, quickly admitted everything, which was stupid of him. Now we have Jackson.
A white Army vet intent on killing black men stalked one potential victim before setting his sights on another — quenching his racist thirst by driving a sword through a man in Midtown, police said.
The 26-inch weapon — with an 18-inch blade — pierced the victim’s chest just above his heart and exited his back before pinging against the sidewalk on Monday night.
White supremacist James Jackson, 28, wanted maximum exposure for his crime, telling investigators he rode 200 miles on a bus from Baltimore because New York is the “media capital of the world.”
“He wanted to make a statement,” said Assistant Chief William Aubry, head of the Manhattan detectives squad.
Jackson — an Army veteran who was deployed to Afghanistan for just under a year — took the bus on Friday and got a room in The Hotel Times Square on W. 46th St., sources said.
“I’d rather not get too specific, but in general he came here to target male blacks,” Aubry said.
Soon the hunt would begin.
Dressed in a dark suit coat, slacks and a button-down shirt, he stabbed Timothy Caughman, 66, at random about 11:30 p.m. Monday on W. 36th St. and Ninth Ave. after initially focusing on another black man three blocks away, officials said.
He was about to pounce on the other man until something “spooked him,” according to a law enforcement source.
“He appeared to be very close, following a black guy,” the source said. “He slows down and at one point he turned around and came back. It’s clear he was really focused on the guy for some time. Then, he falls out of camera view and doesn’t attack the guy. He made statements that he was following the guy but something spooked him.”
He found Caughman — a bottle collector who liked to take photos of himself and celebrities — a few blocks away.
During the savage attack, Jackson jammed the sword he purchased online into Caughman.
“What are you doing?” Caughman was overheard desperately pleading with his assailant, who was seen on top of him before fleeing east on W. 36th St.
Caughman, stabbed in the chest and back, stumbled two blocks to the Midtown South Precinct stationhouse on W. 35th St., bleeding from his wounds.
Paramedics rushed him to Bellevue Hospital, but he could not be saved, officials said.
Mayor de Blasio tried to put the city’s outrage into words.
“More than an unspeakable human tragedy, this is an assault on what makes this the greatest city in the world: our inclusiveness and our diversity,” he said Wednesday. “Now it’s our collective responsibility to speak clearly and forcefully in the face of intolerance and violence — here or across the country. We are a safe city because we are inclusive. We are a nation of unrivaled strength because we are diverse. No act of violence can undermine who we are.”
Can you believe how full of shit the Mayor of NYC is? That bullshit reads like a canned response, completely devoid of common sense and any real meaning. De Blasio isn’t a very good liar.
One more thing. FAIR reports that the original version of this story at the Daily News had the information about the dead man’s criminal record. FAIR had enough clout to get the rewritten version above that omits the Negro’s long rap sheet.
It’s tragic that a young white male would throw away his life by killing a worthless old Negro who was about ready to die anyway.
His post-traumatic stress disorder probably did him in. That leaves an opening for a good defense lawyer to have him sentenced to a mental hospital.
