Judge Drops The Hammer On Racist Trump Supporter Who Murdered Black Man To Start ‘Race War’

A white supremacist was sentenced to life in prison on Wednesday after he was found guilty of fatally stabbing a black man in New York City.

According to CBS New York, James Jackson, a self-described Trump supporter, wanted to commit an act of terror and hate crime.

The report states that Jackson went on a stalking spree, searching for a black man to murder. He eventually decided to attack Timothy Caughman, 66, by stabbing him to death.

Caughman was reportedly collecting bottle to recycle when Jackson attacked him. The victim then entered a police station severely bleeding. After being rushed to the hospital, Caughman was pronounced dead.

According to the CBS report, Jackson told police he had traveled to New York City with the intention of committing a “political terrorist attack.”

He also told police he wanted to “inspire white men to kill black men, to scare black men, and to provoke a race war.”

“From the outset of this case, the people have rejected any resolution of this case that does not acknowledge the reality that James Jackson is a white supremacist and terrorist,” Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. said after the conviction, noting it was the first time a white supremacist was convicted on terror charges in New York.

According to the report, Jackson spent hours looking for another target. He eventually gave up and turned himself in the next day.
