Celebrated 20 year old millionaire now charged with hate crime murder

Think poverty causes crime?

Slatter Howell III was a violent gangbanger before he had money. He remained a violent gangbanger after receiving an inheritance of over a million dollars.

Once celebrated by the media as a “success story,” Howell is now charged with the hate crime murder of a Cleveland firefighter. Police say Howell shot and killed Theodore Wright, as the 58 year old drove his car in Cleveland, Ohio. Howell is believed to have killed Wright to gain street cred and join a gang. Wright was undoubtedly targeted because he is white.

Since at least the 1980s, black street gangs have used random hate crime violence against white people as gang initiations.
