Man Kills Eight After Being Fired For Stealing From Warehouse;
Relatives Defend: All That Racism Finally Got To Him

Oh perfect. Now it's an official MI-6 License to Kill, too.

"Everyone's got a breaking point," the mother of his girlfriend avers. Indeed.

I'm feeling a bit of a breaking point myself.

Relatives say Thornton, 34, finally cracked after suffering racial harassment in a company where he said he was singled out for being black in a predominantly white work force.

Also singled out for being a thief, but I guess that was racist.

"Everybody's got a breaking point," said Joanne Hannah, the mother of Thornton's longtime girlfriend.

After shooting his co-workers, Thornton hid as police moved in. He called his mother, who tried for 10 minutes to talk him out of killing himself, his uncle Will Holliday told reporters.

"He said, 'I killed the five racists that was there that was bothering me,'" Holliday said. "He said, 'The cops are going to come in so I am going to take care of myself.'"


Authorities said they found him dead.

Thornton had said he found a picture of a noose and a racial epithet written on a bathroom wall, said Hannah, of Enfield, whose daughter Kristi had dated Thornton for the past eight years. Her daughter told her that Thornton's supervisors said they would talk to his co-workers.

Brett Hollander, whose family owns the distributor, denied any racial bias. And a union official said Thornton had not filed a complaint of racism with the union or any government agency.

By the way:

Was he a Tea Partier? I understand Tea Partiers have grievances and may become violent at any moment, but the media usually isn't so understanding about that.

So I guess probably not a Tea Partier, then.


So The Eight Dead Are Now Accused of Racism By A Mentally Unstable Murderer, And We're Gonna Push That Idea, Huh? Commenters are noting this -- thanks to the media, eight families will bury their dead with the last public word uttered of them "Racist."

Because there's no way a crazy freak of a thief and murderer would make up a sob-story about racism on a suicide call to his family to explain his vicious action.
