The Political Agitator’s response: This is sad for all families. Someone posted a comment on my page saying I had not said much about this incident. Well I don’t know much about it and really had not had time to research it. The person said that Flanagan was a homosexual but this person is the only person that have brought this to my knowledge. I don’t have a problem with anyone’s sexual preference. But what does that have to do with the motive here? Now what I am reading into this is that Flanagan has accused some of racial discrimination and I don’t find that hard to believe. Does it make it right was he did, take the the lives of 2 co-workers and wounded a 3rd person, oh hell no. Do I believe the racial concerns are real, I know they could be. Folk better be careful how folk treat folk because they can make one hurt them or hurt others. This is very sad!
