We have Asians and women on our local police force and this seems to help our police officers to treat Asians and women as regular people. In Atlanta, there are very few Asians in their population so their police force is 1% Asian according to their website. It’s pretty clear their police don’t think of Asians nor women as regular people. Instead of feeling bad for the victims, they felt bad for the gunman and said he was “having a bad day” and “fed up”.

And Sam, I totally agree. He had such a hard time finding enough Asians in Atlanta that he had to drive to 3 different locations and only killed a couple of Asians at each spot for a total of 6. Not racially motivated at all.
