electricblue: I liver here in FL. the reporting is bullshiat. these guys could be giving more relevant information like the trees are green or the street is paved. Seriously people are calling in with stories like "I was getting my hair done 2 blocks away..."

2 confirmed dead.

/typing this from the sub-basement of the building so I'm getting a really ....ahhHHHHHHHH!


You wouldn't have typed AGGHHH, you would have just said it.

Ah, you weren't really alive through most of the 80s. Let's put it this way...the term "going Postal" isn't just a term someone made up out of thin air.


I thougt that was the early/mid nineties...

Guy in bad financial straits, family doesn't know a thing, decides to off them before going to the office and shooting until he's committed suicide by cop


I like this one. Will be waiting for the discovery of the other bodies.

Cranky old guy on my local talk station brought up that some "Mooslim" loon in the Middle East called for smaller, softer targets to start getting hit.
I'm willing to believe it's any of the following:

A: Totally random wackjob
B: Disgruntled employee
C: Pissed off customer
D: Other

Anyone care to guess?

Nope....just too many trolls like you.


God, you are an idiot.


That's all you have?

Fark off....why don't you tell us what kind of gun laws you would like to see? You're either a wuss or a troll....please let us know which one it is.


Something like Britain or Japan would be a good place to look, if you want to have that conversation.

Shinigami-sama: i like the description of suspect: blue polo and jeans. thanks. youve just narrowed it down the entire male population.

Plus, this is Orlando. We generally don't get dressed up much for work.

Went from suit and tie in NJ to shorts and tevas in FL with the same company.

Well yeah it's scary. That's why you should buy a gun. Make sure it's like my little brother's and has no safety, keep it loaded with hollow points, and stash it at the head of your bed.

You'll be ready for anything.

Former employee, according to the news.

First they came to the college campuses, and I did not speak out because I had already graduated.
Then they came to the shopping malls, and I did not speak out because I'm poor and I hate those places anyway.
Then they came to Army posts, and I did not speak out because I'm a near-blind asthmatic that couldn't even try to enlist.
Then then they came to the cube farms, so I quoted Office Space and got my third cup of coffee of the day.
 
2009-11-06 01:14:46 PM  
I hope this doesn't happen where I work, the security guys up front from Wackenhut are glorified Barney Fife's. They use some quality SW M&P .40's, but after shooting bull with them a while back, those guys only qualify once a year and never shoot outside of that. So Barney Fife just with more ammo. Maybe they'll be like those cops on Worlds Wildest police videos that fired 20 bullets at a suspect and missed

Xlr8urfark: In before the inevitable Gun Law Flame War.

Well not to kick that off, but this WAS the state where lawmakers were working on on passing a law that forced employers to allow thier employees to carry guns at work.

What a trite color scheme.

Same thing.

Authorities are going through the building, trying to evacuate it floor-by-floor.

Nearby Lake Highland Preparatory School is on lockdown.

Cornwell: I thougt that was the early/mid nineties...

Hmmm...looking at the Wikipedia page, it does look like most of the killings were 91-93, with one occurring in 86. But there were a lot of other mass killings around that same time, weren't there? Some dude in San Diego opened fire in a McDonald's is one that comes to mind.

I heard they're soon to become available at the grocery store. Perhaps you could track some down if you really apply yourself.

Why would anyone go on a shooting spree if they were Hispanic? Losing your Hispanicness is not something to go raging about.

Lollerwaffle: Does this huge influx of violence scare the shiat out of anybody else in our country? I am only 21. I don't know if it was like this when older generations were growing up. Perhaps it was, but just not widespreadly reported because they didnt run news 24-7 back then. Either way, it's a big issue, and I can't grasp why we aren't getting psych type people in schools to teach our kids nonviolent conflict resolution, and doing everything we farking can to figure out what makes people do these awful things and find a way to fix it. We have computers and unmanned drones and MRI machines and a pill for every farking ailment. Why is stopping humans from killing eachother so low on the list? We're supposed to be a country of innovators. Surely this violence can be stopped, slowed, or at least dampened, some how some way.


a) more crazy people are somewhat-functional thanks to modern medicine, so more are available to go full-blown crazy in public whereas in the past they might have already been institutionalized (or dead);

b) we hear about every incident immediately no matter where it happens


I doubt that, per capita, there's been much of an increase.

You must not know Orlando very well. The police in this city are essentially bulkier versions of Barney Fife.


I go to orlando a couple times a year. Hows the real estate matket there these days? We were thinking about buying a lot or a small house in kissimmee.

On a side note. After Columbine my buddy who is a cop says that all PDs were instructed to skip the survivors and wounded and go straight for the shooter.

You do know that crime is actually fairly low right when you look back over the last 20-25 years.

Both in absolute numbers and as a percentage of the population.

rastjr: too many guns

Because of course the Major in the MILITARY from yesterday was not someone who we trusted with guns.

It ain't the guns, its the crazy. Look at the guy who stabbed infants at a daycare in Belgium. Link (new window)

Suicide with mass murder is the new thing.

So instead of actually indulging in that user's request you just further the childish retorts. That sounds logical.

People should have the right to arm bears but not assault arms as we use arms daily unless you're an amputee.

Police said they are looking for a former disgruntled office worker. He was described as an armed man wearing a light blue polo shirt and jeans.

Police have shut down nearby Colonial Drive and Garland Avenue. Driver should avoid the area if they can.

Don't know Kissimmee very well. A few of my friends do, but it's not an area I've found myself in very often. Sorry.
