Police officer who said that Atlanta spa shooter "had a bad day" is critisized for anti-China Facebook post
A Georgia sheriff’s captain during press briefing on mass shooting in Atlanta-area spas, said that Robert Aaron Long had “a bad day,” but besides this obvious stupid statement, the captain can get under scrutiny for his recent Facebook post in which he blames China in COVID-19 pandemic.
Before Long’s motives for mass murder became known, Captain Jay Baker at Wednesday’ press briefing said that the gunman “has an issue that he considers a sex addiction and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places.”
“It’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate. He was pretty much fed up and kind of at the end of his rope, and yesterday was a really bad day for him, and this is what he did,” Baker said.
But Baker drew more criticism to himself after he posted a photo of T-shirt on his Facebook. The post was made in last April, but now it can be a center of controversy toward the captain. The T-shirt had the phrase, “COVID 19 — Imported Virus From Chy-na.”
“Love my shirt,” Baker reportedly commented on the Facebook post. “Get yours while they last.'”
