A news story about vicious hate crimes that was overlooked by most of the media has apparently come to a bizarre conclusion with the apparent suicide of the suspect in the case.
As Twitchy reported, the New York Police Department recently named 25-year-old Tyrell Shaw, a career criminal on probation for burglary, as a suspect in a series of attacks on Asian women in Manhattan. The assailant at least four times hit women in the face with a hard object inside a plastic bag after attempting to talk to them. A blog essentially containing a confession to the crimes led police to name Shaw.
The New York Daily News had noted in its coverage that Shaw claimed to be suicidal:
Shaw also admitted he was “infatuated with the idea of having an Asian wife and raising children” and had plans to kill himself because of all the attention he was receiving, according to the blog, which was first reported by The New York Times.
“Inform NYPD they could stop searching for me because I’m going to commit suicide,” he wrote.
WABC-TV reports that Shaw was found hanging in an elevator shaft on the Upper East Side on Monday after neighbors complained about the smell for several days.
In a June 18th post entitled “Rejected too many times,” Shaw allegedly wrote:
I followed two asian girls around SoHo just to see why they’re lives are ten times more important than a Black Mans in America. Unfortunately that didn’t end well. By the end of the night I really decided to fight my battle using violence. Humans don’t understand me. I see tons of Asian Women walking around with White Men and I never understood how they even made it on a date, if I’m trying so hard just to get one number. I’ve been rejected so much I feel absolutely numb. Tonight was the night I realized that Humans found racism popular. Now the whole World Hates me because I’m African American.
Around 8PM. I realized that I would have to use violence in order get the response that I desire. By starting an independent civil war where I will hit over a million Asian Women in the face with a stick will change history. I understand that Asian Women are afraid of African American Men and most of the time they never even touched the skin of a Black Man. I have no choice, but to react this way. Everyday people hurt my feelings and its not fair. Truthfully, I feel so much better after hitting an asian Woman in the face with a steel rod. It was the greatest achievement of my life.
