Austin Hate Crime?

Four black men kill a Hispanic passenger in a car that struck a young girl in Austin.

Less than 24 hours later, without any arrests, Austin Police Department spokesman Cdr Harold Piatt pronounces to the press, "This wasn’t a hate crime. This wasn’t a racist crime. There is absolutely no reason to think race had anything to do with this."

So how does the good commander know this? No suspects in custody and he declares "absolutely" that it is just an ordinary, random street crime.

My, my, the Austin Police Department must be hiring psychics nowadays.
