James Jackson acted like a deranged white supremacist the day he murdered a stranger in Midtown New York just because he was a black man.
Now, the racist killer says he regrets stabbing Timothy Caughman to death with a sword. But, his reason why is shocking!
Tuesday, March 21, James Jackson says he went out looking for African American men to kill. He came upon a stranger, Timothy Caughman, and stabbed him with a sword with an 18-inch blade near 9th Avenue and W. 36th Street, reports Reagan Coalition.
Sunday, Jackson spoke with Daily News from Rikers Island. He told reporters that he really regrets killing Timothy Caughman because he would have preferred killing a black victim who was younger or more successful.
During the Daily News interview at Rikers, Jackson was said to be emotionless. His explanation for why he murdered a black stranger in such a hate-fueled manner wad emotionally detached:
“I’m sorry I killed that man,” he said. “It was pitch black, I picked a dark place. I didn’t know he was elderly.”
He said he would have rather killed “a young thug” or “a successful older black man with blondes…people you see in Midtown.”
Jackson, 28, said he did not hate Caughman.
“I don’t hate anyone I don’t think is on my level,” he said.
Jackson took a bus from Baltimore to New York City with racist murder on his mind, police sources said.
He’d chosen New York as his destination because he wanted maximum media exposure, sources said.
Last Monday he plunged a sword with an 18-inch blade through Caughman’s chest, authorities say. He turned himself in to police in Times Square Wednesday. He is charged with murder as a hate crime.
Mayor de Blasio called the attack “domestic, racist terrorism.”
