DAILYKENN.com -- Jayvon Hatchett, 19, said he “felt the need to find a white male to kill” after watching videos of police brutality happening across the country, reports wrbl.com.
The teen allegedly attacked an AutoZone employee on Aug. 25 around 8:36 a.m., the reports say.
Hatchett "is charged with aggravated assault and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime."
The attack was unprovoked, reports say. It occurred in Columbus, Georgia.
• The attack is an example of stochastic violence. It's a cause-and-effect phenomenon in which a report results in an action. It is stochastic because the effect can be predicted, but the specifics of the attack are random.
It is predicted that false news reports of police unfairly targeting black males will result in retaliatory violence. The specific details of that violence cannot be predicted.
