Texas man accused in El Paso mass shooting charged with hate crime

Patrick Crusius, 21, has been charged with 90 counts under federal hate crime and firearms laws for his role in the 3 August shooting at a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas that killed 22 people and wounded 24. Authorities said the shooting was aimed at scaring Mexicans into leaving the US. Crusius was charged last year by state courts, where his capital murder trial is in its early stages.

I mean considering what Mexico goes through with the cartel in Mexico, I don't think killing innocent people in a Walmart is going to make them leave, what an idiot. put his ass away.

Cops wont shoot an armed white man who has just killed 20 plus, wounded way more..... But a peaceful black man selling single cigarettes and not paying the right taxes is a fucking dead man!! Choke him out!! Choke him out!! Lock her up!! Choke him out!! No wonder black lives matter is a movement

Sounds like he should be charged with terrorism. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Definition_of_terrorism In the United States of America, terrorism is defined in Title 22 Chapter 38 U.S. Code § 2656f as "premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents".[4] In general, terrorism is classified[by whom?] as: The use of violence or of the threat of violence in the pursuit of political, religious, ideological or social objectives Acts committed by non-state actors (or by undercover personnel serving on the behalf of their respective governments) Acts reaching more than the immediate target victims and also directed at targets consisting of a larger spectrum of society Wait scrap that, he is a white American, those cant commit terrorism, mb.
