Tokyo attacker who killed 19 disabled people was motivated by the Nazi ideology of eugenics

Satoshi Uematsu, the 26-year-old man who killed 19 disabled people in a care facility for the disabled near Tokyo on Tuesday, expressed admiration for Nazi ideology during a stint in a psychiatric hospital in February. According to an official in Sagamihara, Kanagawa Prefecture, Uematsu discussed his attraction to the Nazi ideology of eugenics, which sees disabled people as those who should not exist. “Hitler’s philosophy dawned on me two weeks ago,” the killer said on February 20. He also told the official that “There are 800 million people with disabilities worldwide,” and that, “Money is spent on them. It should be used for other purposes.”
