BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) — Police shot and killed an armed man at a crowded Cracker Barrel restaurant where a woman and a girl had been killed and another person was wounded, sending customers fleeing out the back door.

The restaurant said the violence appeared to be the result of a domestic dispute between two customers. Authorities said a woman called 911 from the restaurant Thursday night, saying her husband was upset because she told him she was leaving him. He left the restaurant and was circling the parking lot, the woman told police.

My wife and I have a Cracker Barrel dispute. She loves it , I hate it. SO we have an agreement.

If I have to eat at Cracker Barrel, then the next place we eat is Hooters.

We don’t eat at Cracker Barrel anymore.

Mass shooting seem to be increasing as of recently as the economy continues a downward spiral and certain segments of the population are not able to keep their emotion and violent tendencies in check.

I believe what you say is true, although this particular shooting probably isn’t representative of those social pressures.

"I hate it"

Ditto. I don't really hate it, but I'm not real fond of it. My wife loves it. She constantly mentions she wishes there was one in our area. I'm glad the closest one is over one hundred miles away. When we go on trips, she always checks an area we visit closely to see if a CB is nearby.

If it’s bad enough to call the cops it’s bad enough to at least lock themselves in the bathroom. Those extra few seconds for him to get in might have made a difference.

Or is there some sort of deep cover psy-op going on to try and accomplish what Fast and Furious could not do?

My son and family travel a lot, particularly in the summer, and they go from CB to CB - not to eat but they do like to listen to books on tape so they rent one at one location, turn it in at the next one and get a new one. I have traveled with them some and believe me I would rather listen to a book on tape than my DIL so God Bless CB!

"I always liked Po Folks better than Cracker Barrel but haven’t seen one of those in years."

"Po' Folks was bought out, and the name was changed to just "Folks", so as not to offend the poor.

That's why I don't eat there anymore...well THAT and the fact that ours seems to get its staff from leftover fast food employees.

You usually have to go to a birthday party at Chuckie Cheese to experience this level of violence.

Absolutely!

Ironically, that may not be the case. As in the Great Depression, large scale economics does not seem to be a major driving force to such violence. Those who do get violent due to having money problems do so even when the economy is booming, so the statistics stay about the same.

In a downturn, though many people are economically hard off, there doesn’t seem to be much direct translation to their family life.

And while most people assume a financial windfall might be as destructive, unless it does so immediately, it too will not usually matter too much.

“For restaurant attempt of Home Cooking CB isn’t too bad. I like the catfish and red beans.”

That is kind of my take. Menu selection is old school, which I like. Alas, prepared in big steel vats somewhere distant, instead of a good iron skillet right there.

“I cannot imagine a less likely homicide scene.”

Why would you think that?

Members of a violent and undesirable element of the population can enter into any business or scene in the country.

Now we see violent actions such as this taking place far too often in our country. Look at what happened in NH last yesterday or what occurs on any given weekend in Chicago, Detroit or New Orleans.

"We don’t eat at Cracker Barrel anymore."

I like Cracker Barrel Food But I Hate their Restaurants. They shove you up against other Tables and the acoustics in those places approach the pain threshold. It always feels like I am eating in a barn with a million chickens squawking constantly!

“Why would you think that?”

Because the food and ambiance are downright soporific, the average age in there is probably 55 - 62 and no except a few of the staff move with any sense of purpose far less go berserk. This is not Lucky’s Lounge down along Industrial Canal.

I don’t believe this had anything to do with the economy. The wife decided to tell her husband she was leaving him in a public place with her two daughters present. Domestic violence experts will tell you that the most dangerous time for a woman who is being abused is when she leaves.

I have a hunch this guy was an abuser. I also think that may be why the lady wanted to tell him in a public place. I think she was already concerned over her safety. She may even have told him with the children there thinking they would be a deterrent to this idiot.

It’s important that women know that if they are in an abusive situation, they need to make very careful and methodical plans on how to plan their exit strategy.

Meanwhile, not only did he kill the wife and one daughter, the other daughter is in critical condition at Metro. Very sad. Prayers for her and the rest of the family, who live in my community.

We have had mass shootings at Luby’s Cafeteria, dozens of suburban high schools, a Cracker Barrel, Mc Donald’s and other places that would appear to be free of violence.

We are never really safe from these violent street thugs.

Yeah, looks yummy. Maybe it is just the CBs in our area but the gravy tastes like dishwater and they can’t even fry an egg correctly.

But the fried apples are awesome. So when my wife and her friend go to CB they always bring me a jar of those. LOL
