“I was angry at white women,” assistant Crown attorney Leonard Kim read from a transcript of the video statement Stavropoulos gave to Greater Sudbury Police after the late-afternoon attack that saw the woman require emergency surgery to deal with a severed artery in her neck.
“I like white women, but they won’t f*** me. So, I wanted to see what it felt like (to kill a female child) … I had my mindset. I was going to kill a child and was waiting for the right opportunity.”
In his video statement, which Kim read to the court, Stavropoulos told police he was “not psychotic. I’m not psycho. No … I’m not experiencing hallucinations.”
Stavropoulos said he identified as an “involuntary celibate” or an incel.
Incels, or involuntary celibates, promote the misogynistic idea that men are entitled to have sex with women.Incels are members of an online subculture who define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner despite desiring one, a state they describe as inceldom.
