With the recent shooting and murder of 10 African Americans in Buffalo, NY last week and several shootings of Blacks and Asians in Dallas, some are saying that racially motivated murders must be identified and prosecuted quickly.

The 18-year-old shooter in Buffalo who has been apprehended, travelled from hours away and live streamed the event as he walked through the parking lot and into the Top’s Friendly Market supermarket, opening fire, said Buffalo Police Commissioner Joseph Gramaglia, at a press conference following the event. The suspect was fully armed in tactical gear.

“This was pure evil,” said Erie County Sheriff John Garcia. “It was a straight-up racially motivated hate crime from somebody outside of our community, outside of the city of good neighbors as the mayor said coming into our community and trying to inflict that evil upon us.”

In Dallas, there are several shootings under investigation and Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia announced the investigation of potential hate crimes in the city where Asian businesses have been attacked, including a beauty supply store and a salon.
