White Terrorist Fatally Stabs Black Man in Midtown NY- Admits He Was Targeting Black Men


By The New York Daily News

The 28-year-old man busted for fatally stabbing a black stranger in Midtown on Tuesday has told cops he came the city from Baltimore to kill African-Americans, sources said.

James Harris Jackson, an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan and is a member of a documented hate group from Maryland, surrendered to cops just after midnight Tuesday, sources said.

“You need to arrest me. I have the knife in my coat,” Jackson told police officers after marching into the Times Square substation, sources said. “I’m the person you’re looking for.”

He later told police he was motivated by rage against black men who get romantically involved with white women, sources said.

“It is believed he was specifically intending to target male blacks. It’s been well over 10 years that he has been harboring his hate towards blacks,” said NYPD Assistant Chief William Aubrey, head of Manhattan detectives.

“The reason why he chose New York because it is the media capital of the world and he wanted to make a statement.”

Video surveillance “proves that the victim was attacked because he was black,” he said.

When Jackson walked into the NYPD’s Times Square substation and announced he was their suspect, cops recognized him from pictures put out by the NYPD. Officers searched Jackson and found a knife on him and the 26-inch black sword used in the murder of Timothy Caughman, 66, of Manhattan.

Jackson randomly picked Caughman, as the older man was going through a waste bins looking for recyclables, Aubrey said.

He allegedly stabbed Caughman multiple times in the chest and back following an argument on the southeast corner of W. 36th St. and Ninth Ave. around 11:25 p.m. Monday, cops said.

“What are you doing?” Caughman was overheard saying to his attacker, who was seen stabbing him nearby on W. 39th St. and Ninth Ave.

After the attack, Caughman staggered nearly two blocks to the Midtown South Precinct stationhouse on W. 35th St., bleeding from his wounds.

Medics rushed him to Bellevue Hospital, but he could not be saved, officials said.

“It’s extremely distressing,” Police Commissioner James O’Neill said.

On Tuesday night, cops released surveillance video of the attacker, shown bolting from the stabbing dressed in a sharp overcoat.

The suspect was being held at the stationhouse, sources said. Authorities were expected to announce his arrest Wednesday afternoon.

On his Twitter page, Caughman, nicknamed “Hard Rock,” describes himself as a collector of autographs, bottles and cans. He is depicted in selfies with the performer Beyoncé and other celebrities, and he was an avid gossip follower. He also posted a photo of a playbill from “The Glass Menagerie” signed by actor Joe Mantello.

Jackson arrived in New York on St. Patrick’s Day on a BoltBus and “proceeded to wander through the city,” Aubrey said. He stayed at a hotel in Midtown.

A video and a photograph the NYPD released show Jackson trotting down the street holding his jacket closed and carrying something in his hand. He was dressed in dark clothes.

In December 2014, Ismaaiyl Brinsley traveled to Brooklyn from Baltimore and assassinated Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were in the car near Myrtle and Tompkins Aves. in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Brinsley had made anti-police statements on social media prior to the murders.

Brinsley fled police to the platform of a nearby subway station and shot himself to death.
