Every news story I have read from a US newspaper is reporting this shooter as a woman. In fact, I read this morning that…
Moseley is now in the small minority of female mass shooters, with only around 4 percent being women, according to experts.
“If you look at mass shootings in the United States that have killed eight or more people, they’re all done by men,” Adam Lankford, a criminologist at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, told The Post.
Moseley had multiple outstanding tickets for registration violations and a lack of insurance, and just last week, the courts were asked for permission to take the outstanding fines to trial.
But tickets were not her only problems – Coley told the Baltimore Sun Moseley had come out to her family as transgender in December 2016 and wanted to begin hormone therapy.
At present, it is not known if she did commence hormone therapy, or if Moseley, known to friends as ‘Sno’, used male or female pronouns.
Coley and Moseley were intending to create a documentary on Moseley’s life before she died, based off a manuscript the Rite Aid worker had written.
Other friends paid tribute to her on social media, claiming she had been consumed by mental illness and had reached out for help multiple times before shooting at her colleagues.
One friend, who asked to remain anonymous, told the Sun he was at first appalled to hear about the shooting, but immediately felt heartbroken when he discovered who was behind it.
Why can’t the media report this truth?
