The shooting took place at the offices of the Family Research Council, which is located at 801 G Street, about a block west of the Verizon Center.
A source tells ABC7′s Scott Thuman that the suspect is Floyd Corkin, 28, of Virginia.
FRC Shooter, Floyd Corkin
Sources say Corkin walked into the Family Research Council and said “It’s not about you, it’s about the policy,” and then shot the guard.
The guard, who was shot in the shoulder, was conscious and breathing after the incident.
The suspect was taken into custody by the FBI and was being interviewed. Authorities later found his vehicle at the East Falls Church Metro station.
When, oh, when, will the lamestream media begin to do their jobs? Will we see this story on the NBC Nightly News or World News Tonight? We shall see. Oh, and did you hear? Authorities found Chick-fil-A paraphernalia in the suspect’s car. Gee, wonder what those implications are? /sarc
Today Sarah Palin announced that not only would she not run for office again in 2010, but she’s officially handing over the reins of the governorship to Lt. Gov. Parnell effective July 26th.
For those who underestimate Sarah, they do so at their own peril. We have seen no other politician like her, and that is not a bad thing; it is truly a good thing, so her announcement today is not a negative in my book. She realizes the frivolous complaints by the weak, whiny libs from the DNC were unnecessarily costing Alaska too much money, so she’s stepping aside to have more political clout from outside the political box.
You go, Sarah. More people support you than you know, and the reason why you were attacked so much is because people fear you. I say that’s a good thing, and a sign you’re doing something right.
