    Thanks for the roundup JJ.

    Just watched the press conference on the Spa shootings in ATL. The press seems to think the fact the victims were largely Asian would make it a hate crime – but the shooter seems to be saying it was because they were sex workers. I guess targeting women for being sex workers isn’t a hate crime?

    I mean no offense to Asian Americans – they are being targeted and it’s racial hate. But so many of these spree killings are underpinned by hatred for women and sexual issues.

      If it’s the prostitution that bothered him so much, you’d think he’d aim for the perps, the johns. They’re the ones creating the entire industry he’s so upset about. But nooo. Funny — as in endless screaming — how that works.

        One of the murdered women was in her 70s. I’m guessing she wasn’t a prostitute. In fact, there’s no evidence yet that any of these women were sex workers.

      “underpinned by hatred for women and sexual issues”


      Then there’s the whole bloody “sex work” bullshit. If it’s just work, why are nearly all prostitutes trafficked women and girls who want to get out of it?

      I’m so disgusted at how the Cherokee Sheriffs office handled that press conference…and released that information from the suspect. That is bullshit. This investigation is going to be fucked if it is handled by CCSO…
