    This happened in my neck of the woods- man went postal in my area.

    when it first happened, rumors were flying that he was headed for a walmart to do more damage.

    all i know is that shit like this can't happen here. just fucking can't.
    man, all i know about my hometown, my area here is gone now. it ain't the same.
    damn...

    I seriously want to say something.

    But I'll ask this instead: How can anyone say the dude killed his own family when both they and the gunman are "unknown"?

    Nothing ever beats the guy in Colorado a couple of years ago who got angry with the local government, so he took his recently-armored bulldozer out for a spin to destroy the town.

    Terrible news. Sometimes I wonder what causes a person to behave like this. I'm just glad that the guy's last bullet was directed toward a moron...

    Horrible. Just horrible.

    Just come to show that some people are just too damn uncivilized. Really, what the hell is wrong with people these days?

    I've been to Samson, AL several times and I used to drive through Geneva, AL to get to Enterprise, AL to visit my sister when she used to live there.

    I was watching my local television news station that had one of their reporters live at Samson. They were wondering if the economy was the motive for the shootings.

    I'm originally from Northwest Florida (Freeport and Destin) and I've been to Samson in the past with both my father and grandfather (RIP, both of you). So I was shocked when I heard about it also. I'm now up north of Atlanta in Dahlonega, GA and it's in the news here also. I'm thinking it was due to being fired or something. I read something about how he was an employee at the place he commited suicide at. No one really said if he still worked there or was being let go or already was.

    I feel sorry for the victims. Sad shit, indeed.

    I just heard about that where they don't know if he was fired or something. His neighbors were also interviewed and they did'nt have much to say. The neighbors said he kept to himself.

    I'm glad he's dead. Just a pity he took 9 other people with him. C**t.

    It can, and it did. Stuff like this happens in places typically unexpected. I was shocked it happened, but the location - regardless or where it was - isn't shocking at all. It's because we think we live in our nice little world where atrocities like this can't happen. You will see more and more of this type of aggression (probably not nearly this bad) as economic woes cause people to panic.

    The saddest thing I saw was the Sheriff's deput who lost his wife and 1 1/2 yr old daughter to this gunmen, and his 3 month old was injured with bullet fragments.

    I saw this on the news this morning. It strikes me as typical fear mongering bull that the news anchors are asking if the economy is to blame for this. The report I heard was that the guy quit his job a few days before the shooting.

    But even then, the economy didn't make the guy kill anyone. You know who did kill the people? The fucking shooter! It's his fault, his responsibility, and the blame lies with him alone! There are too many people who go around with the bullshit attitude that they are a victim. There needs to be real responsibility, and it starts by not letting pieces of crap like this guy off the hook for what he did.

    Well, considering he killed himself, its a moot point.

    Indeed. The main point though is that instead of the media blaming the economy or whatever the threat of the day is, they should be blaming the person who actually did it.
