9 Dead In Manchester, Conn. Workplace Shooting

MANCHESTER, Conn. — —
Nine people are dead in a workplace shooting at a family-owned beer and wine wholesaler, police said.

Sources said Omar S. Thornton, 34, was a driver for Hartford Distributors and was described by a Teamsters Union official as a recent hire and a "disciplinary problem."

"The union was bringing him in to meet with the company to remedy the problem," said John Hollis, a Teamsters official. "He started shooting."

The gunman, identified by a company executive as Omar Thornton, had complained of racial harassment and said he found a picture of a noose and a racial epithet written on a bathroom wall, the mother of his girlfriend said. Her daughter told her that Thornton's supervisors had not responded to his complaints, but a union official said Thornton had not filed a complaint of racism to the union or any government agency.
Thornton had been caught on videotape stealing beer from Hartford Distributors and was supposed to meet with company officials when the shootings began, Teamsters official Christopher Roos said.
"It's got nothing to do with race," Roos said. "This is a disgruntled employee who shot a bunch of people."

TRUMP or BUST
See Wino, he played the race card. This fucking nigger got caught stealing beer, so he tried to say some White employees drew a noose on a bathroom wall, which was surly directed at him. Where is Jesse Jackson on this??
