Yet another shooting today, this time in San Francisco, at the major UPS distribution center. Apparently a disgruntled employee was the perpetrator. At least three people were killed, four including the shooter, who committed suicide when the police arrived.

Working conditions there are hard. A cartoonishly evil management team make it harder than it needs to be.

Someone just deleted some posts without saying anything, well either that or I somehow traveled back into the past and the crazy is yet to happen yet.

Notice that as soon as someone shows up to stop them with a gun, they shoot themselves.

I'll never understand the impulse of taking people with you. If you're going to kill yourself, kill yourself. Don't go destroying however many other lives first and then pussy your way out of it.

It's called being mentally unstable. You would think these people would want to go out in a blaze of glory fighting the cops/someone to their last breath but nope... They kill themselves like cowards. If they weren't mentally unstable they would have skipped to shooting themselves from the start.

There's a certain element of spite/hatred to it in many cases. If you look at how often some asshole pulls a "if I can't have her" and murders his wife and/or children and/or any of her friends or coworkers that happen to be nearby before killing themselves.

I haven't seen anything yet as to whether he was after a specific person, angry with the company itself or just a random lunatic.

Typically they have a certain person in mind when they do this sort of stuff. Though they don't think shit through so it doesn't seem like they get the person they were aiming for often.

This one in particular it doesn't sound like he even managed to hit anyone above the waist. Plus obviously there would be security and secret service at such an event. So yeah, he was probably planning death by cop / blaze of glory.

Gun sales have actually fallen significantly now that there's no more "Obama's comin' to take yer guns" sentiment.

the rise in workplace violence.

This is why when firing someone you have to document everything and then take the access key/pass he/she has. If the person was a troubled employee have security guards escort them out of the building. Their access to the building/business should be blocked the moment they handed over their key card/pass.


it's from a movie but is this why some companies will hire someone else to deliver the bad news ?
