This is quite convenient for everyone.

It saves the public the cost of a trial, and at the same time it assures that the none of the names of his prominent democrat/leftist buddies will be mentioned/brought up at said nonexistent trial.

Allman was fatally shot at about 7:20 a.m. after being found in a house in Sunnyvale…

A reporter heard what sounded like shots in the area around 7:35 a.m. this morning.

Apparently the speed of sound is significantly lower in Santa Clara, California than in most other parts of the world.

So, off he goes to the eternal dirt nap. No loss.

I’d like to hear a bit more of this guy’s background.

That's a shame. Really. I take no joy in this man either killing, or dying.

That being said, as I live in this neighborhood (well, ~1 mile away), I'm glad I don't need to worry about this boogieman creeping up on me or my friends.

Prayers out for everyone involved. I wonder if the autopsy will turn anything up - remember, Charles Whitman, of UT-Austin tower shooting notoriety, had an aggressive brain tumor that probably played a role in his behavior.

Maybe the Sunnyvale Police learned or thing or 2 since the ESL shooting in the 80’s. Richard Farley walked out of that shooting alive, and he is still alive after over 20 years. He killed 7 of my co-workers and he is still alive on death row.

My husband and I met at ESL the year after the shooting. We just had our 20th anniversary.

Well said.

Regarding Mr. Whitman, read up on him on the TruTV website. It wasn’t so much the tumor as the fact that he was under significant stress, and popping Dexedrine, an amphetamine. Amphetamines are hardly conducive to a calm and relaxed state of mind.

When all is said and done, and when people get a chance to reflect, there were very likely warning signs that people missed, as is typically the case in spree killers. But even warning signs are just that....they cannot predict WHEN a person will snap, and WHAT he or she may do.

Here’s a link to the Charles Whitman pages; it’s pretty informative. http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/notorious_murders/mass/whitman/index_1.html

Interesting thought. I agree with your sentiment. This one has something different about him. From everything I’ve seen so far he lived as a very decent fellow, and this spree was completely out of character. It does suggest that maybe there was something medical going wrong that led to the -snap- and break with reason.

Plant shooting victim describes the shooting in detail:

It is apparent Allman thought he was being “picked on” because of his race.

Thanks, I looked, couldn’t find it and I heard this morning it was deleted by YouTube. Maybe it is being deleted as it is found and people keep posting it over and over....

Yup, my kids were locked up in their school. My coworker couldn’t get her kid out of Fremont High School for more than an hour.

I wonder if this guy’s name will be changed on his tombstone to Shuree Fallguy

The portrait of the 47-year-old quarry worker and single dad that emerged Thursday — a day after he gunned down three co-workers and wounded seven other people — was not that of a spiritual, peace-loving man who snapped. It was one of a coldblooded killer who sheriff’s officials said kept a handgun at home hidden in the cutout pages of a Bible.

Sheriff’s officials revealed Thursday that Allman used a rope and piece of plywood to jam shut a door and trap about a dozen co-workers in a trailer at a Cupertino quarry during a predawn meeting Wednesday. Then he began shooting.

While on the run a little more than an hour later, Allman made a walkie-talkie call back to the terrified survivors. His message: He was coming back to finish them off, sheriff’s officials told this newspaper.

Holy Crap!

If true, talk about a two-faced SOB! Speaks of peace with his tongue, while with his hands premeditates murder.

Still, by my Christian faith, I'm am sorry he didn't give himself up, so that he could try to turn what was left of his life around. And some poor cop will now have to live with the fact they killed a man - even if they had it coming, in spades.

Horrible. Prayers out for all involved. And next time I see a Sunnyvale cop at my local Starbucks, coffee and danish are on me....
