White supremacist James Jackson re-enacts killing black man in confession video, shows no remorse: "He's a homeless black guy"
Reports state that the footage shows Jackson re-enacting the March 20, 2017 racist murder for multiple detectives in a police interview room
The 30-year-old white supremacist, James Jackson, who stabbed a black man to death last year, reprotedly recounted the chilling incident in a confession video played in a Manhattan court for the first time on Thursday.
He also said he had no remorse for what he did. "No, he's a homeless black guy," he said.
Reports state that the footage shows Jackson re-enacting the March 20, 2017 racist murder for multiple detectives in an interview room at the Midtown South Precinct, according to the New York Post.
The footage was taken shortly after Jackson had turned himself in to the authorities.
Jackson, in the footage, uses a matter-of-fact tone and tells the detectives how he spotted the 66-year-old Tim Caughman hunched over a garbage can on Ninth Avenue and attacked him with a knife, plunging the weapon into his back.
The suspect then stands up in the footage and mimes thrusting a 18-inch sword, deep into Caughman's back with his two hands on the hilt.
Jackson, in the clip, tells the detectives: "It was a downward stab. He freaked the f—k out and started screaming. He scared the hell out of me. So I stabbed him a couple more times in the chest.”
The Army veteran then lies down on the ground to show how the bleeding Caughman put his hands up in an effort to protect himself from the unwarranted assault.
Jackson then allegedly stabbed him three more times in the chest.
"I guess I put a little too much energy into it," he said on the tape, explaining how the sword's tip was bent after the attack.
During the interview, Detective Joseph Barbara, questions Jackson, asking if he feels any remorse for what he did, to which he replies with a "No, he's a homeless black guy."
Jackson allegedly travelled from Baltimore to New York just to kill blacks and picked the particular city to garner maximum media exposure, according to reports.

The white supremacist, in the footage, also said that he killed Caughman because he was particularly agnry with black men mixing with white women. He reportedly stalked nearly a dozen people as potential targets before settling on Caughman.
"That guy was a practice guy. I was going for something a bit bigger," Jackson said of Caughman in the video.
