Escambia County Commissioner Doug Underhill broadened his attacks on the students who participated in the March for Our Lives rallies to include the city of Parkland, Fla. He described the accused murderer, Nikolas Cruz, and the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students that have spoken in favor of gun reform as “monsters.”
In a Facebook comment to NewsRadio 1620 radio host Andrew McKay, Underhill wrote, “Andrew, it was the socialist experiment of this radically leftist south Florida town that created the monster that did this AND (his emphasis) the little monsters who are parading around pointing the finger at people like me.”
He accused the Stoneman Douglas students of “prostituting the deaths of their classmates” and continued to call them “miscreants.”
A miscreant is defined as “a person who behaves badly or in a way that breaks the law.”
“These miscreants are not reacting to the event,” said the commissioner. “They are prostituting the deaths of their classmates to drive an agenda that was formed in them long before the first shot was fired.”
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is one of the best high schools in the state of Florida, earning a “A” grade every school year since 2010.
