The Georgia man who confessed to killing eight people in a string of shootings at Asian massage parlors told police he has sex-addiction issues and wanted to “eliminate” the “temptation,” authorities said Wednesday.
“Yesterday was a really bad day for him and this is what he did,” Cherokee County Sheriff’s Capt. Jay Baker said—comments that drew swift condemnation because they seemed to downplay Tuesday night’s carnage.
Hours after that press conference, Baker faced new outrage with the discovery of social media posts in which he promoted T-shirts with the racist logo “COVID-19 imported virus from CHY-NA.”
