Colorado mass shooter
Over the weekend, a mass shooting in Colorado was deemed a hate crime against LGBT people because it took place at a LGBT club. On Tuesday, the accused shooter filed a demand for a preliminary hearing and the filing shows that the shooter is a non-binary person. The shooter’s name is Anderson Aldrich and in the filings, their lawyer refers to Alrich as Mx with the following footnote: “Anderson Aldrich is non-binary. They use they/them pronouns, and for the purpose of all formal filings, will be addressed as Mx. Aldrich.” Does this then unravel the narrative that this is an anti-LGBT hate crime?
