Georgia sheriff's office shredded for saying spa shooter had 'a really bad day' before killing 8 people

Captain Jay Baker of the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office drew heavy criticism on Wednesday when he said that a shooting suspect who killed eight people at Asian spas had "a really bad day."

During his press conference about the shootings, Baker said he didn't believe that 21-year-old alleged shooter Robert Aaron Long was motivated to murder people at the spas due to racism.

Rather, explained Baker, he viewed the women who worked at the spas as "temptations" for his supposed sexual addiction who had to be "eliminated."

"He was pretty much fed up and kind of at the end of his rope and yesterday was a really bad day for him," Baker said. "And this is what he did."

Baker's statement that the shooter had "a really bad day" at a time when families of the eight people he killed are grieving generated a swift backlash on Twitter -- check out some reactions below.
