‘Sex addiction’ could be motive for Atlanta killer: officer

New York: man who killed eight people in a shootout Atlanta Officials said on Wednesday that the massage parlor could be affected by “sex addiction”.
Officials said a 21-year-old white man, Robert Aaron Long, is in custody and has admitted to shooting at three locations on Tuesday evening.
The murders of people of Asian origin occurred when the country was swept by a wave of violence against them.
But Sheriff’s Office Captain Jay Baker said at a press conference on Wednesday that two of the victims were white and Long “claims it was not racially motivated”.
Sheriff Frank Reynolds said Long “has made indicators that he has some issues, possible sexual addiction, and some of these places may have been used frequently in the past”.
Baker said Long told him that he regarded the spa as “an outlet for her”, that “she shouldn’t do anything to do it” and that he wanted it to “take out that temptation”.
Seven of those killed were women and the South Korean Foreign Ministry said four of them were of Korean descent.
At least one person was also injured in the attack. Mayor of Atlanta Keisha Lance Bottoms said: “Whether it is the senseless violence that we have seen playing on our streets, or more targeted violence like yesterday, crime against any community is a crime against all of us.”
Fears persisted in the Asian community that he was targeted due to violence against him.
Vice President Kamala Harris said: “Knowing the increasing level of hate crime against our Asian American brothers and sisters, we also want to speak with them in solidarity and accept that any form of hatred can be passed on to any of us Don’t be silent either. ” ”
Asian Americans and the Pacific Islands, an organization in the US, have said that there have been 3,800 cases of violence and harassment in the past year.
Democrats and Asian activists blamed former President Donald Trump for the violence due to repeated assertions of Kovid-19 as “kungflu” and “Asian virus”, with some blaming the epidemic in the US.
Officials said that after Long’s images were broadcast, his family identified him and alerted him to track them down to use his mobile phone.
He was caught without incident about 240 km away. Authorities said he was en route to Florida and may have been planning to raid the “porn” business.
