  1. This is where political correctness is utterly wrong and an insult to the people. Why do they say “the ALLEGED gunman etc….” when he was fully identified as to who he is and what he did?
    The statement should read as ” The gunman escaped and is being search for …..” State the incidents the way it was! Not as something that may have been done!
    I hate political correctness, it is ripping this nation apart. Get rid of it!
