[Ed. – Is an ugly pattern emerging?]
The Aurora Police Department arrested 30-year-old Steve Sinclair this week on hate crime and attempted murder charges after he allegedly yelled “black lives matter!” while stabbing a white man who was trying to run away from him.
“An arrest affidavit says Sinclair used a knife to stab 29-year-old Michael Conner who was transported to the hospital for his injuries and a collapsed lung,” 9News reported. “Conner, a white male, told police while at the hospital that Sinclair, a Black male, shouted ‘Black lives matter!’ prior to stabbing him.”
The local NBC affiliate reported that it was not exactly clear what happened in the moments leading up to the attack but that people who witnessed the attack said that Sinclair approached Connor and said, “I’m going to kill you and your dog.”
