Friends: Calif. suspect, still on the run, was 'Mr. Mom' (Just an ordinary Community Organizer)
MSNBC ^ | 10/62011 | BETH DUFF-BROWN, JASON DEAREN

To his friends Shareef Allman was the big man with a big smile, a devoted single father of two who once worked tirelessly to raise money for Hurricane Katrina victims, and who penned a novel about the evils of domestic violence.

The portrait of Allman, 47, being painted by those who know him diverged strongly from the man authorities suspect in the fatal shooting of three co-workers at a cement plant on Wednesday. Seven others were also injured in the attack, some critically, authorities said.

"If you live in San Jose, you could not help but know him. He had a great smile, and he lit up the room. He was such a peaceful man," said Rev. Jeff Moore of the NAACP's San Jose-Silicon Valley chapter. "It's not making any sense to us, and it hurts us to the core. We want to do whatever we can to bring him home."

As the manhunt for Allman continued, his friends pleaded for him to turn himself in while sounding mystified that the man they knew could resort to such brutal behavior.

Allman became upset during a safety meeting at Permanente Quarry, said Santa Clara County sheriff's Lt. Rick Sung. Allman left the meeting and returned with a handgun and rifle and started shooting people , Sung said. About 15 workers were at the meeting.

Sheriff Laurie Smith released the names of the dead Wednesday evening as Manuel Pinon, 48, of Newman, Calif., and John Vallejos, 51 and Mark Munoz, 59, both of San Jose.

"We still believe the suspect is armed and dangerous," Smith said.

“Rev. Moore said one of big messages of Allman’s show was for black men to behave responsibly. “He loved his people. He was a proud black man,” he said.”

“His people”? I guarantee that he hated Whitey more than he “loved his people”.

Maybe he’s just stuned. Or pining.
They should shoot him some more.

[. . .his friends pleaded for him to turn himself in . . .]

When dealing with an armed psychotic police rightly shoot first and handcuff afterward.

“Shareef?” Sudden Jihad Syndrome?
“Community organizer?” Pushed over the edge by Obama’s class warfare rhetoric?
He also has a not insignificant criminal record and may simply be reverting to type. It is also possible that more than one—or perhaps all three—of these factors had a hand in this atrocity. Hope he is caught before he harms more innocent people.

Yeah, when a white guy does something horrible (or an Asian, or a Hispanic) the media does not go around to their friends and family getting comments about how this just wasn't him, not the man they knew at all, whatever could have made him do something like that, and that they hope he'll be okay and can explain what happened.

He apparently hated Whitey with hispanic sounding names even more.

Manuel Pinon, 48, John Vallejos, 51 and Mark Munoz, 59

He probably hated Hispanic almost as much as whitey.

All righty, then! "Raising Money for Katrina Victims," is apparently going to have a very long half-life.

Brad from Tennessee said: "When dealing with an armed psychotic police rightly shoot first and handcuff afterward."

That was certainly the approach used at Waco.

But, perhaps that's not what you meant.
