GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Indictments handed up against a man who shot four people near a Greenville Wal-Mart in June say he picked out his victims because they were white.

A grand jury indicted 23-year-old Lakim Faust on 14 charges Monday, including four counts of attempted first-degree murder.

The indictments say Faust, who is black, picked out his victims based on their race. The documents didn’t specify why Faust wanted to shoot white people, and police have not talked about why he picked out his targets.

Authorities say Faust had a plan for the attack and wanted to shoot a large number of people on June 21. Investigators say he had more than 100 rounds of ammunition when he started shooting at people at a law firm and a shopping center.

    Here”s a news flash for ya! There are a whole bunch of black people do not care for white people they think we are stupid and are afraid of them and they are mostly right.
    They believe that white people cannot be trusted and that we are all racists and out to get them and that taking anything we have including our lives is OK because of the victim mentality that is perpetuated by our government the media and our school systems.
    There are web sites dedicated to the extermination of white people that is operated by a government employee at homeland security. You won’t here that on ABC but it is true look it up for your self At war on the horizon.
    Now I know the are white people that feel the same way about black people but these people are reviled and rightly so by the government and the media but you never see it at least not for long when the shoe is on the other foot.
    IF we are all equal and I believe we are then treat everyone equally and all this racist garbage will stop

    If the races had been reversed, there would be marches, protests and demands that he is charged with a hate crime. This story would also go nationwide and uncles al & jessie would fly into town.
