On Thursday, Clearwater Police arrested 16-year-old Mychal King for the alleged murder of Jason Taylor Paul. 

According to police, King admitted to killing Paul because he had a hard day and “just wanted to kill the first person he saw.” 

Paul was riding his bike home late when he was stabbed to death in January. He was 22-years old, working two jobs and saving to go to school to become a veterinary technician.

This is getting out of hand,  can this be tried as a hate crime?  No because the victim was not parat of a protected class.  I think ALL crimes are hate crimes and this one should be eligible for death by 10,000 cuts.  OOOHH  This makes me angry.

I am sorry for the mother of this murderer.  I choose to believe that she did not raise a child to murder.  God bless her and her family.

I suspect the authorities will say NO on a hate crime,  because the assailant merely wanted to kill the first PERSON he saw.

If he had said first WHITE person,  different story.

IMO,  when someone murders anyone, they pretty much hate them. So in my book, any asssault, any murder, is a hate crime - it would be racist to say some are worse based on the color of someone's skin.

One murdered person is just as dead as another.

This was part of his confession to police. Sadly, it is true.

How old was TM...? Wasn't he 17? And in all stories I read about him, he is always described as "unarmed black teenager"..... why the difference in this case - " 16 year old black man". Just seems strange to me....

I, personally, feel this is a death penalty case - clearly no remorse. I see no way he can be rehabilitated and no reason his ass should sit in jail for life.
