On Wednesday August 26th Vester Lee Flanagan, 41, shot to death on-air reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman Adam Ward while they were conducting an interview on live television. Flanagan, who previously worked for the same television station (WDBJ in Roanoake, VA) as Bryce Williams, was apparently openly gay and was let go by the station more than a year ago because of his irascible personality. He sued his former employer for racial and sex discrimination seeking damages of $25,000 but the suit was thrown out for lack of evidence.
Flanagan sent ABC News a 23-page manifesto and posted video to his social media accounts AFTER killing two people.
Right-wing websites are making a big deal of the fact that Flanagan was openly gay, as if that was te cause of his murderous rampage.
