Damn it! Damn it! Damn it! That dude that went on a rampage in Connecticut did it because his employers were all racists! Damn it! Now I need to boycott beer too?
Okay – well – not really. Is it me or is anybody else out there getting really sick and tired of this race card blame game? Why the hell can they not accept responsibility for their own freakin’ actions?!?!
Here is the story
And here is another link to this story by a different news organization
This is such bullshit! The man snapped because he is a freakin’ nutjob and a thief and got caught stealing and was fired for it. He came to work that morning with a loaded gun in his lunch box – you know damned well he already knew what was coming for him.
Quotes from both of the above stories
John Hollis, a legislative liaison for the Teamsters union, said he had been told that Thornton was caught on a video camera in the warehouse stealing beer. Hollis said the purpose of the meeting was to confront Thornton. Cirigliano, the union president, had been “fighting tooth and nail for this guy to get another opportunity,” Hollis said.
Manchester Police Chief Marc Montminy said that at the meeting, Thornton had been given the option of resigning or being fired and “was being escorted from the building when the shots rang out.”
Omar Thornton sat calmly in a meeting with union representative and his supervisors as they showed a video of him stealing beer from the distributor where he worked.
Busted, he didn’t put up a fight, company officials said. He quietly signed a letter of resignation and was headed for the door when he pulled out a gun and started firing – “cold as ice,” as one survivor described it.
Dude – he got fired for stealing from his employer! How is that racism? According to his family:
Hannah said that Thornton, who is black, had complained about racial harassment at work. Hannah said that Thornton told her a racial epithet had been written and a noose drawn on a bathroom wall and that Thornton had taken photos of them with his cellphone. (Note here – Hannah is the shooter’s girlfriend’s mother)
and from the other story – this account
Thornton had said he found a picture of a noose and a racial epithet written on a bathroom wall, said Hannah, of Enfield, whose daughter Kristi had dated Thornton for eight years. Her daughter told her that Thornton’s supervisors told him they would talk to his co-workers.
So – we have two different articles on this situation basically saying the same thing – but – each adds a little more detail than the other.
So – what we have here is a black employee who got caught stealing. He was confronted with a video tape of his actions. He has a union rep sitting beside him who is trying to help get him another chance – he agrees to resigns – then turns around and shoots his supervisor and his union rep then goes on to kill other co-workers. And – rather than face the facts that this guy is a stone cold killer and thief – his family points to racism based on a third-party story?
Both articles go on to detail the fact that the shooter never once filed a discriminatory complaint and it states there has never been any federal or state complaints of racism EVER filed against this distributor.
Get over the freakin’ race baiting race card. He failed at life and is a miserable human being (now worm dirt). Accept it – move on already. Slavery freakin’ ended almost 150 years ago. Full civil rights were granted to all in 1964 – 46 years ago. I don’t deny there might be pockets of racists and racism here and there – but – every time a black man is caught doing something wrong – why does it have to be because of race?
The only reason race relations continue to be sour is because of the blatant racism coming from Blacks and Hispanics. We can’t move forward until you idiots get over it. You have become what you hate in white people. We have bent over backwards for almost 50 years setting things right and putting in laws to ensure we never turn back those hands of time – yet – you blame racism for all of your faults.
How much are you willing to bet that both Rangel and Maxine Waters are going to play the race card and blame racism on the fact they are both lying cheating thieves that deserve to go to jail. Black Americans are no more special than the rest of us Americans. You deserve no special treatment if you are a criminal. You go to jail just like the rest of us. If you want to know why there is a disproportionate number of blacks in jail – just check out your ghettos and your “hoods.” The fact of the matter is you are committing more crimes than whites and you’re getting caught.
Enough already! Take responsibility for your own actions.
One last thing before I go – where the hell are all those loony leftard anti-gun idiots? Why aren’t they speaking out against this? Oh, wait – that’s right – it’s okay for a black guy to go on a rampage and kill a bunch of white people – because – afterall – he’s not one of those crazy right winger religious nutjobs that cling to their bibles and their guns. Nope – he’s just a black man that suffered at the injustices of “the man” and has every right to fight to have his ankles unshackled.
Gimme a break! Seriously! Where are the anti-gun nutjobs? We see and hear them all the time when a white person goes off their rocker and kills a whole bunch of co-workers.
