    He is dead, he shot himself after murdering fellow workers.

    Pretty odd since they were just talking about women killers.
    Was she a cheese theft caught on tape, now alleging racial bias?

    Thornton, who was black, told police dispatchers he had seethed with a sense of racial injustice in his job at Hartford Distributors.

    This is what set the shooter off. But there are a lot of these articles that are brimming with racial disrespect. I have nailed a few news papers on it in the past. I don't need to know the skin color until it is racial issue.

    But we get code words all the time, so keep an eye open. Maybe count & report them here for about a week. I see stuff like, "Joey who is black, bought cookies at Ralleys mrkt."

    How about Joey, with a 9" cock, divorced parents and on social security, bought cookies at Ralleys mrkt. Really asinine crap.:evil:

    I still don't get what Mal's problem with it is. It fit in perfectly fine with the context of the story.
