Tragedy, Heaped Upon Tragedy… August 3, 2010

It isn’t bad enough that a gunman allegedly opened fire at his place of employment (former?).  It isn’t enough that the pain and confusion heaped upon these families and the community will remain with them for the remainder of their days.  Now, we have to introduce RACISM into the equation.  Of course.

Never mind that Omar Thornton had apparently been caught, on camera, in the act of A) partaking of alcoholic beverages while on duty as a driver and B) stealing from his employer.  When confronted with the video evidence, he was allowed to keep his dignity and simply walk away.  No one would have been hurt except for the ONE person who should have… the person allegedly carrying out the offenses.  But no.  Evidently admitting wrongdoing and simply accepting responsibility was too much for Omar Thornton to take.

This is no more about racism than it is about illegal immigration or health care reform… or any other nonsensical diversion from the true story of needless suffering due to one man’s inability to cope with his demons.
