Perhaps instead on this article showing up in the off-beat section, Topix can create a seperate psycho-suicidal-disgruntled worker section.

Sadly, we may need it more in the future.

After reading the last post, I think Topix has pretty much said, "Nope - this is the perfect place for stories like this."

There was a great after the fact, show of force by the Minneapolis Lesbian Police Force. Assault weapons, armored vehicles, hundreds of cops. You woulf thing the city was being attacked by middle aged white males. They sure don't go after the dark skinned gangbangers this way.

That's because dark skinned gangbangers usually kill other dark skinned gangbangers, it actually helps society.

Do they still use the term 'Postal'? Or is that socially unacceptable and politically incorrect now?

Yes, but a show of force helps the overweight lesbian cops shed a pound and gets their tongues out of the doughnut hole for a few hours.

The "Donk" extends his sincerest condolences to the families and friends of those effected.
He also extends his sympathies to the families of those who took this tragedy as an opportunity to air out their own hatreds and prejudices here in TOPIX, and elsewhere.

While it's still not clear why this happened, it was likely spawned by a hostile workplace situation...we shall see.
I had the misfortune to work for a monster the last few years of my work-life, and it is not a stretch to understand how easy it can be to come in one morning and plug your boss. As-to the others, including the UPS guy, THAT I don't understand.
My situation is ancient history now; I mustered the strength to weather the oppression until I could make my escape via early retirement. Sadly some can not stand the pain and do not see better options.

According to the TV news the shooter was fired from his job at the sign company yesterday.
What is wrong with a small minority of people in this country that their first reaction is to go out and shoot innocent people?
This guy didn't even take time to think about why he was fired and what options he had, just grabbed his gun and went back and destroyed the lives of a lot of innocent people. Sad.

Yes, Lets not forget that the Killer is a "Victim" and he had no choices! How often did your Employer "Un-chain" you so that you could go visit you family?

Arabs and Jews don't care much about their employees. They are just disposable resources to these people. No surprise he got shot.

I guess he didn't feel bad enough to just shoot himself outright, he had to kill other people first sos he'd then feel he had no choice to oft himself.

Kind of personalizes the whole episode, doesn't it.
It is sometimes hard for those of us not connected to an event like his to realize how many, many folks are.
Again, my sincerest sympathies to all those connected to the victims, their family, and friends.

Better times to you all...
