Following the shooting at Jersey City, NJ, US.
see CNN report, I've already asked why kosher grocery is somehow important, but now politicians commented on the event
Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop tweeted Tuesday that the initial investigation has led authorities to believe the shooters targeted the location.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio added that officers have been deployed to protect the Jewish community in his city.
I'm not sure, but I've read that the crime committed was a drug dealing (that's why it started at cemetery in the first place).
So my question is as following:
Why politicians assert such things (hate crime if i'm not mistaken) about the event, that is supposedly a drug dealing with a following shooting?
