Prosecutors offer plea bargain in Family Research Council shooting

Washington (CNN) - Prosecutors are offering a plea bargain to Floyd Corkins, the man accused in the August shooting of a building manager at the conservative Family Research Council. But a defense attorney declined at a hearing Monday to immediately accept the deal and was granted a continuance in the case.

The proposal includes admitting guilt to three of 10 counts in a federal indictment, including a charge of Committing an Act of Terrorism, which has never been prosecuted in the 10 years since the law was passed by the District of Columbia.

    Sounds like an open and closed case of political terrorism and attempted murder. This clown should never walk the streets again.

    from the article:

    ....A man authorities identified as Corkins pulled a 9 mm handgun from a backpack, had words with Johnson, and began shooting. Authorities found additional ammunition in the backpack, along with 15 sandwiches from Chick-fil-A.

    That's a short term survival kit of sorts, if you stop and think about it.
