THIS JUST IN – The United States Attorney General’s Department filed 26 counts of Federal Hate Crime charges against the accused racially-motivated Buffalo supermarket shooter.
Upon conviction, the suspect could be sentenced to death.
The suspect also faces additional firearms offenses after his manifesto cited the Replacement Theory ostensibly pushed by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to stoke fear among the white community that blacks are poised to replace whites as the majority race in the United States.
His motive, according to sources was “to prevent black people from replacing white people, and eliminating the white race.”
The current racial mix of the United States population is 57.6% white, 19% Hispanic, 13% black, 5% Asian, and 5.4% for all other races. Yet apparently blacks are more feared to replace whites than Hispanics who comprise the second largest population.
