Probably an illegal alien bent on killing a coworker for hanky panky with his woman.

...a workplace shooting...

This of course means that the shooter probably shouted 'Allahu Ahkbar' prior to firing, if we take the hint from the Ft. Hood shooting.

Is there a count on Republicans and Democrats? Could this affect the election outcome?

Interesting title.

Were the shooters and victims, chickens?

If so, we need laws against chickens with guns.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To escape the gunfire at the processing plant, apparently.

>>Witness account: Jesus Davila said he was at a bus stop on Olive Avenue when someone from a nearby meat factory ran up and said a gunman was shooting people inside.

Then Davila heard a loud gunshot.

“I thought I had been shot,” Davila said.

Then he saw the apparent gunman.

Davila said the meat factory worker told him that the gunman had just got out of jail.

“He said the guy was in nine years and he was crazy,” Davila said.

Per news conference the shooter is a black male parolee/employee with a long rap sheet. He is still alive. All of the victims were hispanic co-workers.

I’m sorry for the victims but “rampage at a chicken plant” is an hillarious headline.

The reporting on these links is terrible.

From the numbers it appears that 1 man was killed by the suspect and 3 others were shot & injured then taken to the hospital.

The shooter attempted suicide by shooting himself, but has been taken to the hospital in critical condition. Although in the same report it stated he fatally shot himself.

There are no reports of multiple fatalities.

“alice in chains?”

Yep.

It was the best one I could come up with after the brilliant ones on posts 7,9,and 11.

There is one in here somewhere about homicide crime scene cleanup, beaks, claws, and the content of hot dogs, but it’s too early for me to put it together yet.
