Some comments from co-workers:

Suspect was PO’d over money, and or a bonus, and just went off.

Bet they have a policy of no concealed carry in the workplace because they are dangerous.

These incidents seem to be on the rise.
I think we are seeing a society under extreme pressure.

Of course not.

In this state, you have to be well connected politically, wealthy, and or a wealthy local contributing business owner to be given this right. They could care less about the safety of the law abiding tax paying lower class.

This is no secret.

Pretty much depends on which county you reside. In sacramento co, it is becoming quite easy and fair to obtain a ccw. Self defense is now an acceptable reason on the application. The numbers are going up, and not linear.

Yep.

Santa Clara County sheriff draws legal fire for way she hands out concealed-gun permits

She's issued less than 50 permits in a county of over 1.7 million residents.

I think we are seeing a society under extreme pressure.

There was a time when losing your job was a temporary setback. These days, if you are a man of a certain age, that pink slip marks a devastating end to your employment history. The financial comfort you knew is gone and there's no bouncing back.

Not saying that's what happened here and certainly not trying to justify any form of workplace violence, nonetheless, there's a lot of people out there facing some hard futures.

Agree.

Many are very tightly wound. Lots of stress, busted lives, total losses. Anger all time high...Lid pops off hard....

Any connection to the Religion of Peace? Or, was it just a recently terminated employee “going postal”?

Friday, December 16, 2011

Livingston County Sheriffs detectives investigate the scene of a multiple homicide in Emington, about 10 miles east of Pontiac, Friday

EMINGTON — Amy Melton of Emington says she never will be able to forget hearing the gunshots that left five people dead Friday in the tiny village in northeastern Livingston County.

“I will never be able to get the sound of those gunshots out my mind,” said Melton, who lives next door

She said she saw the bodies of three young children in the yard, and the bodies of two adults reportedly were found by police inside the two-story house.
