Jesus Take The Wheel: Black Beer Warehouse Driver Fatally Shoots Himself And 8 Others Due To Racial Harassment

- By Bossip Staff

beer distribution gunman kills 8 and himself

This is crazy:

A black warehouse driver who had complained of racial harassment at work went on a shooting rampage at a beer distributorship Tuesday after he was asked to quit, killing eight people before apparently committing suicide, authorities said. At least two people were also wounded, one critically. The number of dead was confirmed by two government officials who were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.

Authorities were notifying victims’ relatives before confirming the number of deaths and the identities of those shot, state police Lt. J. Paul Vance said.
The gunman, identified by a company executive as Omar Thornton, had worked at the distributorship for a couple of years and had been called in for a disciplinary hearing, said John Hollis, a Teamsters official who was with company officials at the scene of the shooting. Hollis would not say why Thornton was being disciplined. Police found Thornton with a fatal gunshot wound, Manchester police Lt. Joe San Antonio said. A police sharpshooter had approval to fire on Thornton when he killed himself, an official with knowledge of the scene told the AP on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss it.

Thornton called his mother after shooting his co-workers, his girlfriend’s mother said. “He wanted to say goodbye and he loved everybody,” said Joanne Hannah, whose daughter Kristi had dated Thornton for eight years. Thornton had complained to his superiors about harassment, Joanne Hannah said. A picture of a noose and a racial epithet had been hung on a bathroom wall at the beer distributorship, Hannah said. She said her daughter told her that Thornton’s supervisors had not responded to his complaints.

“Everybody’s got a breaking point,” Hannah said, adding that her daughter was with Thornton on Monday night and had no indication he planned the shooting.
James Battaglio, a spokesman for the families who own the distributorship, said he had no immediate information about the allegations of racial harassment.

Wow. R.I.P.

    The Teamsters ain’t shit.They half represent the worker,and only care about the dues.If this man was harassed then the Union should have stepped in long ago to save this mans job.

    White folks can push you to the edge with their racist ways.I work on jobs were there’s alot of this racist crap.And white folk act like blacks shouldn’t get upset over the sh*t they do to us.I hear white boys all the time talking sh*t to a black person, and as soon as the black person is ready to stomp a mud hole in the crackers ass.They act like they can figure out why the black person is mad at them.I felt like doing something to those pale faces to.But one thing,i’ll be damn if i kill myself, to hell wih that.

  • gabe

    if black people would speak ,you would find that a hostile working enviroment is the norm for black folk. some of us just endure for as long as we can. them white folks can put it on you because their family ,friends and relatives were passed over cause they hired you. their main point is to make your job and your life hell by any means necessary. and the front office of these companies know damn well the racism. and what is going on at their plants, and so does that do nothing crooked azz union who you give them dues to for nothing. unions don’t fight for blacksand they don’t mean crap to black folks. no good becomes of the sly,slick and wicked.

  • Sage

    I like his style – at least he was not scared to fall on his sword at the end.
    A true warrior – I am not mad at him.

  • LUV YA!

    Sometimes its like that. Now, IM NOT SAYING WHAT HE DID WAS RIGHT!….. BUT I UNDERSTAND.

  • Robert

    F that, he was fed up with those crackas harassing him and he died like a soldier and took some of those bastards with him. You wanna act funny then things like this happen, you don’t think its cute anymore when peeps shoot up your locker at work. I bet those little crackas will think twice before harassing a negro. Retribution and vengeance is a dish served cold, for those who are cold blooded to you it is what it is. My hat goes off to that G,

  • Orchid

    My prayers go out to the victims’ families. This is beyond sad. Someone is without a mother, father, son, or daughter. Shameful.

  • Ladyluck

    The way people in the workplace be pressing your buttons I will not be surprised if this happens more often.
