Leftist hate crime leaves security guard wounded

http://www.wjla.com/articles/2012/08/chinatown-shooting-leaves-two-wounded-78851.html



A suspect in the shooting of a security guard at the headquarters of a downtown D.C. conservative Christian lobbying firm criticized the group's anti-gay stance before opening fire, a source tells ABC7.

The shooting took place either near or at the offices of the Family Research Council, which is located at 801 G Street, about a block west of the Verizon Center.

The guard, who was shot in the shoulder, was conscious and breathing after the incident. A suspect, who ABC 7's Jennifer Donelan reports was led out of the building in handcuffs, is in custody.

The suspect was taken into custody by the FBI and was being interviewed. Officials say that they not sure about a motive, however, sources say that the suspect walked into the office, made a statement and opened fire.

It is not known that the suspect said; however, multiple sources tell Donelan that the overtones of his statement led to federal law enforcement officials becoming involved in the investigation.

Authorities did not identify the man or disclose where he was being interviewed. Police and FBI officials said it's too early to know the circumstances of the shooting, which occurred around 10:45 a.m., or whether it was connected to the group's activities.

"We don't know enough yet about him ... or mentally what he's thinking," said James McJunkin, assistant director in charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office.

FBI spokeswoman Jacqueline Maguire said during a press conference that the injured security guard went "above and beyond" and hailed him as a hero.

In a statement posted, FRC President Tony Perkins said one of the victims worked with the organization.

"The police are investigating this incident," Perkins said in a statement. "Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family."

The Associated Press identifies the FRC as a "conservative Christian lobbying group." On its website, the group says it advocates "faith, family and freedom in public policy and public opinion."

The Family Research Council advocates conservative positions on social issues and strongly opposes gay marriage and abortion.

Perkins was an outspoken defender of Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy's public stand against same-sex marriage, which made the fast-food chain a flashpoint in the nation's culture wars. The Cathy family foundation has funded the Family Research Council.

"He's taking a bold stand," Perkins said after Cathy's comments were reported. "Chick-fil-A is a Bible-based, Christian-based business who treats their employees well. They have been attacked in the past about their stand. But they refuse to budge on this matter, and I commend them for what they are doing."

      Conservative christian groups never kill doctors or blow up abortion clinics. That would be unchristian like.

      Presumably by "doctor" you mean abortionist. Abortionists are not doctors since abortion violates the Hippocratic oath.

      The point here is Leftist hypocrisy, the Left preaches tolerance but practices intolerance, which often manifests as violence such as that seen committed by "Antifa" when any Nationalist group tries to hold a public meeting. "Conservatives" of which you speak, on the other hand, do not preach tolerance for abortion, it would be lud More..

      No but conservative preach about how precious life is then fire bomb an abortion clinic or shoot a doctor or send people to war. Hypocrisy is all around. YOU just have to open your eyes to see it.

      That really depends on one's view of just war theory. Arguably, faced with a situation like, say, the slaughter of millions of innocent people, the right thing to do would be to oppose, with violence if necessary, those committing the slaughter. Many Catholics and other religious groups in Europe are often blamed for not doing more to oppose the Nazis during the 1930s and 1940s. Today, if one recognizes unborn babies as human life, then there could be a rationale for doing what More..

    • @Dear Leader You're right, they don't. In a country of about 350m people, something like 8 people have died in abortion related attacks. Since Roe vs Wade in the mid 70s.

      I wonder if you're able to understand how low that number is?

      Meanwhile, the bright blue liberal utopias (war zones) in America account for the vast majority of all of our crime and violent crime (including murder).

      But according to the NRA tweakers, all "leftists" want to outlaw guns, so according to your own logic, the only feasible explanation is that he was a Log Cabin Republican. :-)

      Unabomber, a lefty.
      Bill Ayers, "The Weatherman" terrorist, a lefty.
      Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head by - not a TEA Party person - but a Democrat.

      Lefty's have a long and glorious history of revolution.

      Considering that no Tea Partiers have been involved in any acts of terrorism like this, and that any number of Muslims and left-leaning people have been in recent years, I'm really not sure how to make sense of that comment.

      Here, we have someone who appears to have targeted a conservative, pro-family organization simply because he disagreed with it's politics. Sickening.

      The comment was sarcastic, commenting on the media's love of blaming the Tea Party.

      Apparently all 4 people that thumbed the comment didn't get it.

  • what makes you think he was a leftist? the shooter could have just as easily been a closeted republican who just couldnt take the hatred towards gays anymore and he probably felt guilty about supporting anti-gay legislation so that people wouldnt suspect he was gay in the first place

    • @LostSomewhereInSpace: So if the idea of two men kissing or feltching makes me sick I have a “phobia” or suffer from “hate”? You progressive fascist idiots and your Orwellian new speak just can’t stand the idea of anyone having a differing opinion. And this is why anytime you get into power there is a trail of dead bodies on people who disagree of who don’t toe the line for you and your social engineers.
