Terrorism Charges For FRC Shooter Floyd Lee Corkins
From The Hill:
A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted a Virginia man on new terrorism charges for allegedly shooting a security guard at the Family Research Council (FRC) in Washington, D.C., this summer.
The Justice Department is charging Floyd Lee Corkins, 28, with committing an act of terrorism while armed, attempted murder while armed, aggravated assault while armed and second-degree burglary while armed.
This is the first time the government has used the District of Columbia’s Anti-Terrorism Act of 2002 in a prosecution. That "qualifies a person’s terrorist intent as an attempt to 'intimidate or coerce a significant portion of the civilian population of the District of Columbia or the United States'."
