It is apparent that the Distributor & Union did not handle this properly! When I worked for Westinghouse in the 70's, someone suspected of stealing from the company, was caught in the act by the authorities, arrested and then fired.

at a paper mill that I worked at in the 1980s, a co-worker called police to report the theft of an extension cord by other co-workers. After the other co-workers got a copy of the phone call from the police by means of the Freedom Of Information Act, they listened to the tape, figured out who it was and then beat him up and threw him in a paper repulping tank with a weight around his neck. It wasn't until after the victim's wife reported her husband as missing and that he didn't punch out, that the paper mill recalled all the paper product manufactured from the repulped paper that contained the murder victim.

I guess the real ironic thing was that about 3 years before the murder, a daughter of a mill worker unrelated to this murder story had worked as intern in the mill and had written a play called the "repulper" which was a story about how lives twist and turn in the metaphorical "repulper of life". Hahahaahaha, how little did she know that that was going to come true for a whole bunch of individuals in about three years.

He said they treated him bad because they wanted him to do his job, and not steal the beer, a black person can even screw up a good UNION Paying job

Racist or whatever doesnt give him the right to kill eight people. They have him stealing from the company so he takes it out on the supervisors. Coward.

Racism! That's how our half black and half trailer trash President got into office.

Quick, call Jesse Jackson. The black guy was lynched by his white coworkers....wait - the black guy shot a bunch of white people!

The black guy was racist! Cancel that call!

Hawthorne Mayor Larry Guidi has been accused of felony theft from his former employer. Does he still own that 9MM pistol?

Omar did not kill anyone .Its was HD managers who are responsible for this tragedy.They ignored other whites when they were stealing.Also Manchester police and Enfield police are to blame .Manchester police inaction during Omar's rampage for 26 minutes speaks volumes and Enfield police were the one who gave Omar his gun licences.

Why are you keep protecting dirty cops?

How come the owner of HD never install metal detectors? Why he fail to protect his own employees ? He lavish himself to better things in life but he care less about his employees .Lousy $5 000 would have fix the problem but i guess this evildoer rather spend his money on $5 000 meals .

98% of businesses do NOT have metal detectors MORON. So your "evildoer" comment is as STUPID as all of your other posts.

Nothing justifies Omar taking a gun to work and killing 8 people. However, if Omar did report a hostile work environment (harassment or bullying) and nobody did anything the UNIONíS hands are not clean! If Steve Hollander knew what was going on and did nothing about it his hands are also not clean!

The victimís families should demand a complete investigation to determine why this happened. Nobody should have to go to work and be afraid of being shot by a co-worker. HDI owes ALL employees a safe environment.

Victim families should sue Union ,Manchester Police department ,Enfield Police department and the owner of HD who will probably collect insurance monies

Hello, your dealing with elements connected to the South Bay. Being criminal is here "gang und gšbe," even our honorable judge got fired as "the LIAR"! But it took fifteen years, to expose that seasoned crook. After all the damage was already done.
