LAKEWOOD, Wash. - A Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier was stabbed to death in a parking lot at the 12500 block of Pacific Highway Southwest around 2:30 a.m., officials say.
20-year-old Tevin Geike was walking with two other soldiers along Pacific Highway SW when a group of men drove by and SHOUTED A RACIAL COMMENT toward the soldiers, the Lakewood Police Department said.
"One of the soldiers yelled back something about the suspects treating combat soldiers with disrespect," Lt. Chris Lawler said. . . . ."The initial remark that started the encounter seemed derogatory in nature, said Lakewood police Lt. Chris Lawler. He said it was too early to say that race was the motivating factor, but investigators were exploring whether the killing should be classified as a hate crime."

You have to listen to the video report to find out the attackers were black and the victim white.
Leaving out the race of the attacker sure is helpful when asking for witnesses. /sarc
I started this thread about 10-minutes behind the previous thread on this subject. Please lock or delete.
Another murder for Trayvon. Just a bunch of criminals paying tribute to one of their own “fallen” criminals.
Hit squad under contract by Holder’s DOJ?
No. You don't.
I knew it right away.
Lakewood is a complete s$&thole. Nothing good happens on the streets at 2:30 in the morning. If you hear the animals at the zoo screaming, don’t taunt them.
This is happening in epidemic proportions..............with no national coverage..........THIS is the story, not Trayvon.
Keep an eye on this. I’ll bet the hate crime charges mysteriously disappear.
Wrong races. Hate crime laws were created to put Whites in jail for everything they say or do, or don’t say or don’t do, and to set free a non-White who attacks a White.
Lakewood is not. Some parts (like this) are. Some parts (close to the water and Steilacoom) are fine to very nice. I feel safer in Lakewood and Tacoma than Seattle.
but investigators were exploring whether the killing should be classified as a hate crime.”
Yes. Please only kill people that you actually like......
I just clicked on the link and the article identifies the attackers as black, right before describing their age & clothing. Sorry, copy & paste not working so can’t demonstrate the paragraph, but the info is there.
Interesting. Must have been edited after my thread was posted. What I quoted regarding description was the entire description and it had not listed race. Perhaps they took so much heat for omitting the race of the attackers they relented and added that important piece of data.
Or maybe I missed it. . .
