We know that Emmanuel Aranda, who threw a five-year old child over a third-floor railing at the Mall of America, is black, because we can see his picture. We know his victim, Landen Hoffman, still fighting for his life as I write that, is white, because we can see his picture.
However, we aren't being told if this was a hate crime or not:
Emmanuel Deshawn Aranda, 24, of Minneapolis had copped that he “planned to kill an adult, because they usually stand near the balcony” when he went to the mall last week on Friday morning, but he instead set his sights on boy victim Landen Hoffman.
Aranda also admitted to police that he had frequented the Bloomington mall for several years and made efforts to talk to women at the mall, “but had been rejected, and the rejection caused him to lash out and be aggressive,” according to the complaint filed in Hennepin County District Court on Monday.
The deranged suspect “acknowledged repeatedly in his interview that he had planned and intended to kill someone at the mall that day and that he was aware that what he was doing was wrong,” the complaint said.
Man who tossed boy off Mall of America balcony was ‘looking for someone to kill’: prosecutors, by Natalie Musumeci, April 16, 2019
What I want to know is this: Was Aranda looking for someone white to kill, and was he trying to pick up white women in the Mall of America?
These are important questions when whites are charged with fake hate crimes, nonexistent rapes, and prosectuted for committing justifiable homicide. But they're not important when a black criminal tries to kill a white child.
