5-Year FRC Shooting Anniversary Offers A Study In Presidential Reactions To Hate Crimes

The five-year anniversary of the Family Research Council shooting comes just three days after the killing of Heather Heyer and grievous attack on protesters in Charlottesville.

Today, is the five-year anniverary of the Family Research Council shooting in Washington DC.

On August 15, 2012, Floyd Lee Corkins entered the Family Research Council’s building in downtown DC. Leo Johnson, the building manager for the Family Research Council, was at the front desk that morning. After asking him to produce identification, Corkins began rummaging through his bag, which contained 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches. Corkins was also carrying a 9mm handgun and 100 rounds of ammunition.

  • It is no mistake that someone like Floyd Corkins could be persuaded into attempted murder. It is – virtually without exaggeration – the fat loners swept up in political virulence dreamt up by people as equally repulsive and who want to turn the world into something of their own design.

  • Everyone Else

    An organization worth $330 Million shouldn’t be allowed to have the word “Poverty” in their name.
