Actually, he did work there. Workers at cuts n colors can confirm this.
No he did not! I know all the workers at Gaffey's and the owner personally. I asked him if he has ever worked there and he said NO.

Too bad the judges in this county go easy on hardcore violent criminals and repeat offenders. If I could do it all again, I'd never raise my family in such a dangerous area. The killers, rapists, women beaters, and child molesters seem to have more rights out here, and they don't stay in jail long, if they're arrested at all. Of course not. Writing traffic tickets is far more important and profitable than protecting and serving innocent people. And the indifferent judges and shady lawyers only make it more deadly for law abiding citizens to live here.

It was confirmed the other day that Kurt Myers had worked for Gaffey's at one time or another and had been fired from there. It was not disclosed in the news reports how long ago that was. You don't know anyone so give it up.

I guess that would be people who are trying to make sense of what happened. Ya think?

So, if you're not here to talk about the topic, what lured you in? A chance to use a couple of overused four letter words on strangers and get away with it? That's really kind of pathetic.

I didn't care that anybody worked anywhere. I simply countered the other poster who claimed there were rumors the gunman was a corrections officer, past or currently at the time. That was false and was never reported by any news outlets.

You're trying to make sense of mental illness. Let me guess, kurt was your roommate in the facility a few months back.

Yet, there is still nothing indicating any mental illness with this Myers guy.

What is your problem? Certainly a lot of hostility being tossed around here for no apparent reason.

There was a time when we believed that your mother could cause you to be schizophrenic. It wasn't that long ago. We also believed that people in a deep clinical depression just needed to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. We know a little more about mental illness now.

No evidence of it? So someone with no appreciable police record just "decided" to set fire to his apartment, walk into the barbershop, shoot whoever he found there, stop at Gaffey's, shoot two more people, drive through the park outside Basloe Library and then just hole up on Main Street instead of attempting to get out of the Village and escape. Well adjusted, sane people don't act that way. We need to learn more about what makes a person snap and suddenly turn destructive. Yeah, I do think Kurt had something going on that pushed him over the edge. Someday, I hope, we'll have a better understanding of why this happens to some men.

I said "men" because it seems to be limited to males. Women rarely go this route.

If we believe that this nut went to the businesses for specific targets, the only constants were the barber and the Gaffeys employee. The customers were collateral damage. I suppose this would somehow connect those two guys with the nut. I wonder what the connection was.

he used to get his hair cut at the barber shop and its been said he used to work at gaffey's. I'm still trying to figure how glory days ties into it. He drove right over there after Gaffey's and that was not by accident. He pulled into the alley behind/next to the building so he knew a way in probably because he had already been in there.

Someone had said that John the barber and Tom from Gaffey's both sang in one of the local churches. Seems like Tom and John may have known each other.

UNF*C*ing REAL !!

Not even two weeks later and the oil change place is open already !!

Granted it is a business, but allow people to grieve before you reopen. At least let the plaster covering the bullet holes dry and the smell of the fresh paint to go away before you reopen.

Have some sensitivity for the family and friends of the two gentlemen that were kill there.

I don't see any problem with reopening Gaffey's on Thursday. The barber shop is still closed, but John's still in the hospital. Mourning doesn't require that a business close up until it gets the community's permission to reopen. It's really pointless to let communal anger over this spill over to Gaffey's. They had nothing to do with it.
