美国发生枪击案 记者在直播过程中遭枪杀
来源:21英语网    日期: 2015-08-27

  本周三(8月26日)清晨,美国再次发生令人震惊的枪击案,哥伦比亚广播公司(CBS)在弗吉尼亚州的分支机构WDBJ7电视台记者艾莉森•帕克和摄影师亚当•瓦尔德在节目直播过程中遭枪杀。
 
  美国有线电视新闻网(CNN)的报道,嫌疑人名叫弗拉纳根,曾是电视台的员工,在逃跑后饮弹自杀。弗拉纳根在广播时曾用名布莱斯•威廉姆斯,其在推特上曾表示,两名受害者中的一人发表过“种族歧视言论”。
 
  枪击案发生两小时后,美国广播公司(ABC)收到弗拉纳根长达23页的传真,他在传真中表示,作案动机源于今年夏天,一名白人青年在南卡罗来纳州查尔斯顿一座教堂枪杀了9名黑人。他还表示,自己作为一名黑人同性恋者,在工作中受到种族歧视、性骚扰以及恐吓。
 
  而电视台经理则表示,弗拉纳根不好相处,2013年解雇他时,电视台方面曾求助警方。
 
  Two television journalists were shot and killed in Virginia on Wednesday (Aug 26) morning while conducting a live interview and authorities said the suspect appeared to be a disgruntled former employee of the TV station.
 
  Police pursued the suspect and in the late morning, an ABC local affiliate and CNN reported the suspected shooter had shot himself. The suspect was identified as Vester Flanagan, 41, according to a dispatcher for the Augusta County, Virginia, Sheriff's Department.
 
  Posts on a Twitter feed by a man identifying himself as Bryce Williams, Flanagan's on-air name, accused one of the victims of "racist comments," and noted that a complaint had been filed with a government agency that enforces discrimination claims.
 
  In a 23-page fax ABC News said was sent two hours after the shooting, he cited as his tipping point the racially motivated shooting that killed nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, earlier this summer. Saying he had suffered racial discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work, Flanagan described himself as "a human powder keg," the network said.
 
  There, he gained a reputation as someone who was difficult to work with because of his anger, station manager Jeff Marks said during a live broadcast."Vester was an unhappy man," Marks said, adding that he had to be escorted out of the building by police after he was terminated from the station in 2013.
 
  马上学:种族歧视在美国一直以来都是比较敏感的问题,英文中为racial discrimination,racial表示,“种族的,人种的”,racist表示“种族主义者”,racism表示“种族主义”。例:His exposure as a racist allowed the defense to play the race card. (他被爆是个种族主义者,因此对方在种族问题上大做文章。)
