    "You probably want to know the reason for this," Omar Thornton said in a relaxed tone."This place is a racist place. They treat me bad over here and all the other black employees bad over here too."

    "So I took it into my own hands and handled the problem," he said. "I wish I could've got more of the people."

    "I'm not going to kill nobody else though," said Thornton. "I'm calmed down."

    Thornton refused to tell the operator where in the building he was located, "These cops are going to kill me," he said.

    "When they find me that's when everything's going to be over," said Thornton.

    Let me try this again. I understand he played the race card. I don't agree that every time something happens it's "racist". I believe he was mentally disturbed just like the guy in Florida (which is why I mentioned that). Yes racism still occurs but far to often the accusation is made rather than the individual standing up and taking responsibility for their actions. Getting laid off happens to everyone, not just one group or another. These are hard times right now and it will happen more. I hope this was a little clearer as to why I said I disagree with it being because of racism.

    Omar (muslim name) was very upset over being fired for theft. The union folks were there to make sure he was getting his money's worth from them. Effing union bloodsuckers dont' get me started.

    Omar was presented with a choice. Fired for cause, or quit. Either way Omar would not be eligible for U/E benifits. The union, which Omar had contrubuted probably a tidy sum of money made it's best deal for him.

    Theft is not allowed at any employers except elected offiice.

    Omar snapped, and thought he should take out a few people. Of course this should never have happened, but it did.

    Omar had screwed himself by stealing beer in view of a video cam. Omar was angry about being caught.

    In Omar's now very sick mind, he was killing racists. Who knows if it had happened? Why does it matter now? Did the so called racists put the beer in Omar's hands while he was stealing it? I don't think so.

    The MSM saw the word racist, and jumped on the ball.

    I am afraid of copy cat killers.

    Omar used the race card as an excuse just like the guy in Wisconsin woods did. Neither race card is an acceptable excuse for mass murder.

    What I do know is, the msm, and the politicians, and of course the gun grabbers are keeping track of these mass murders by firearm.

    IMO, something has to be done. What, I have not a clue. That is for people with letters behind their name.

    IMO, Omar had suffered from mental health issues for some time. IMO, he should not of been allowed to posses firearms. One does not go from zero to crazy in an afternoon.

    IMO, people should have to pass a mental health exam in order to posses. But, that is another story, for another day.

    We have a right to keep and bare arms, but we dont' have a right to go crazy and kill people.

    What I can't figure out is:
    1. He had stole beer sometime in the day.
    2. He was called to the meeting.
    3. When he got to the meeting he saw his union rep., his supervisor, someone from HR, and whoever else was there.
    4. He shot the first people as he was being escorted off the property.
    At what time did he arm himself?
    Or did he come to work armed with the intention of sealing the beer while armed?
    Did he come to work armed cause he was going to shoot the racist workers anyway?

    Here is something from CNN. (They always get shootings, and airplane crashes wrong)
    They said Omar was called in for a meeting. Might of been his day off.
    He probably knew something was going to happen with his job.
    He was told the news of his termination, went to the lunch room under escort, and pulled out two 9mm's and opened fire.
    sky, i would say yes to 2, 3, 4, and yes he came to work prepared to kill.
