A few days before the November 20, 2014 Florida State University shooting incident, attorney Myron May video recorded a personal statement of what he claimed to experience as a targeted individual. May also bid farewell to and personally addressed family members and friends. The audio of May’s remarks was presented publicly for the first time on James Tracy’s January 25 Real Politik program.
The videos were found playing on May’s laptop computer by Tallahassee police in the aftermath of the event. They are also among the contents May sent to several individuals before the November 20 incident. The files were released to MHB by Tallahassee police in response to a public records request filed in November 2014.
As of February 1, 2015 the Florida State University administration led by Florida GOP politico John Thrasher has failed to fulfill a public records request concerning the case originally filed on November 21, 2014.
