Seattle Shooter charged under State Hate-Crime Law

I heard on KTTH Talk Radio, Boze and Sytman Morning Show, that the man who was accused in last week's shooting rampage at the Jewish Federation office that left one woman dead and five injured was expected to be charged today. There has been much discussion if this shooting was a hate crime or not.

King County Prosecutor, Norm Maleng, said Haq is charged with five counts of attempted first-degree murder; one count of first-degree kidnapping, involving a teenage girl who was briefly taken hostage; one count of first-degree burglary for allegedly entering a locked facility to commit a crime; and one count of malicious harassment under the state's hate-crime law.

From what I understand, King County Prosecutor Norm Maleng now has 30 days to decide whether to seek the death penalty in that case. Norm the ball is in your court now. I realize that the liberals in the Pacific Northwest would rather explain the murders away as that of a deranged and troubled individual. Stay strong and do what is right.

Here is the latest information from the Seattle Times (Excluding the reference to the hate-crime.) Apparently, Seattle Times did not want the offend our liberal Seattle residents:
