McKinney is one of the two Colorado students charged in the 2019 STEM School Highlands Ranch shooting. He was a juvenile at the time that he killed one student and injured eight others. McKinney was born female but identifies as a male.
Leftist progressives claim that "oppressive society" and "a world designed to kill us" had driven McKinney to violence. They claim that he doesn't deserve to be punished for his crimes because it wasn't his fault that he committed the act.
