Maryland Man Awarded Donkey Of The Day For Driving To NYC Just To Attack A Random Black Man
Not that this is anything that we haven't heard already but Maryland white supremacist James Harris Jackson has been awarded Donkey Of The Day for murdering a 66-year-old Black man out of straight hate.
According to WABC-TV:
Police are looking into the background of a man who surrendered Tuesday in connection with the fatal stabbing of a man in Midtown Manhattan.
James Harris Jackson, 28, of Maryland, who police said traveled to New York City with the intent of attacking and killing black men, told them he was a member of a white supremacist group. According to the New York City Police Department, he detailed his racist views in a manifesto on his laptop computer, "explaining his desire and plans."
Police said they are trying to understand Jackson's motives. He brought his laptop to New York, and police are waiting for a search warrant to examine it.
The New York Times is reporting that Jackson told detectives he wanted to deliver it to the newspaper.
Authorities said Jackson walked into the NYPD substation in Times Square Tuesday and announced he was wanted in the stabbing of a 66-year-old man that happened 24 hours earlier.
"You need to arrest me," he reportedly told officers inside the substation. "I've got the knife in my coat." Investigators said two knives were found in his possession -- and the murder weapon is believed to be a 26-inch mini sword.
Detectives believe Jackson has a hatred of black people -- specifically black men. The investigation has led to the incident being deemed a hate crime.
Police said Jackson traveled via a Bolt Bus from the Baltimore area to New York Friday. He was staying at The Hotel @ Times Square on West 46th Street and proceeded to wander the city.
Surveillance video obtained by detectives shows him walking closely behind several black men, almost as if he was stalking them, investigators said. At about 11:30 p.m. Monday, when Jackson was wandering near Ninth Avenue and West 36th Street, police said he encountered Timothy Caughman, an African American man, and attacked him.
Caughman was stabbed in the chest and back. The victim then walked more than a block to the Midtown South Precinct, where he collapsed at the front desk. He was rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Jackson allegedly told police that just before he surrendered he had seen an interracial couple, thought about the two knives he had on him, but ultimately decided to instead turn himself in. He also told detectives he chose to come to New York City because it's the media capital of the world and he wanted to make a statement.
The NYPD has been told the suspect served in the Army for four years, deployed to Afghanistan and Germany, and was honorably discharged in 2012.
He attended college at Ohio Wesleyan University.
