Officer Reassigned After Indicating School Shooting Was Hoax

Conservative TV host resigns after threatening Parkland survivor David Hogg

Hogg, 17, became a visible gun control advocate after a shooter killed 17 people at his high school in Parkland, Fla., on February 14.

North Miami Beach police Officer Ericson Harrell has been reassigned to administrative restricted duty with pay, until the police department's investigation is over, said police spokesman Maj.

"What proof do you have?" "#StonemanDouglas #SandyHook." #MSM is a common hashtag on Twitter that stands for "mainstream media".

Fourteen students and three faculty members were killed in the Valentine's Day mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Similar hoax theories circulated following the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 20 students, six staff members, the shooter's mother and the shooter himself dead in CT.

A March 22 Facebook post referred to the five Parkland students featured on the cover of Time magazine as "paid actors/actresses", including student Cameron Kasky.

A conservative host at a Sinclair-owned station in Missouri has resigned after he made an online threat toward Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg. The Riverfront Times, which first drew attention to the tweet, reported that Allman had previously accused the teenage gun control activist of not being a "grown-up" when it came to handling criticism.

"Well, if you haven't heard already, I'll be standing in front of the man because of my questioning the Parkland narrative!" the post said.

KDNL is one of several dozen local news affiliates owned by Sinclair Broadcasting Group, a far-right media company that has been in the news lately for airing pro-Trump propaganda segments dressed up as news reports.
