BP Adams calls for no plea deal in Manhattan hate crime killing
City officials are denouncing the random killing of a black man in Manhattan and are calling for an emergency community response.
James Harris Jackson turned himself into police this week after authorities say he stabbed 66-year-old Timothy Caughman as he collected bottles.
Investigators say Jackson told them he traveled from Maryland with the sole purpose of killing black men.
Borough President Eric Adams is urging the Manhattan district attorney to not let the hate crime charges to be pled out of this case.
He says he also wants Jackson charged with domestic terrorism.
