Seven dead in California postal shooting
Shooter turned gun on herself, authorities say

A California Highway Patrol car blocks entry to a Goleta, California, postal facility where six people were killed. LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A female former employee opened fire at a 24-hour postal service sorting facility in Goleta, California, killing six people and critically wounding another, before turning the gun on herself, authorities said early Tuesday.

"That's what we believe," Santa Barbara County Sheriff Jim Anderson said.

The shootings took place around 9:15 p.m. Monday (12:15 a.m. ET Tuesday).

SWAT teams found seven people dead inside the building where about 40 to 50 people had been working, Anderson said. The shootings took place "at different areas around the building," he added. (Watch why finding the shooter was a challenge -- 1:18)

"One of the deceased appeared to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound," he said. "We have concluded the search inside, and we do not believe there is any further threat to the community."

I worked in a postal center once, and I can't blame her... it's a shitty job, no matter what part of the center you worked in.

But if it's anything like the one I worked in, the place is fucking huge!

Why must you join them ? Why ? How could you deny that poor woman her right to an outlet ? How is her suffering and an end to it any less worthwhile than your seizure of the moral high ground and alleged correctness ? Oh, of course ! 'She killed a whole lotta people for no reason at all, and that's a bad thing !' Of course ! How could it not be seen ?

As they did, let's conveniently ignore the myriad strains of heinous cruelty displayed through the apathy of her so called colleagues. As they did, let's suppress the realisation that suffering is no less real or meaningful when it is belongs to another. As they did, let us dismiss the impact of an already nerve fraying occupation, and the thankless bastards who yell and whine on an hourly basis against individuals who for the most part, such as this poor woman, do not deserve such ire. As they did, let's avert our eyes to the weeks, months, even years of certain emotional (and perhaps even physical) abuse. More often than not, peers are a terrible thing, you naive fool, and that's the workplace alone !

I feel vaguely ill at the imaginings of her home 'life'. Though that might just be me and my proclivities.

In all likelihood, the stage was written many moons ago. In all likelihood, she deserved better whilst they deserved far worse. No one wins.

And you. You disparage her plight and the resolution thereof ?

You ice hearted cunt. May the fish dine upon your aqueous humour. icon_drunk

She used a 9 mm pistol and reloaded at least once to shoot workers in the carpark and inside the facility. -AP

No detail for the 9 mm pistol.

Until you've worked in a post facility for more than a year, you have no right to even think about questioning that woman.
I'm telling you, no matter where you stood in there, the job *SUCKED*!

The least sucky job was writing down which trucks arrived to take what. 8 hours of doing nothing but reading or playing your portable game system, and occasionally writing down something on a piece of paper.

I'm sure your postal facilities are different in Denmark, what with the hourly torture and dry anal rape. Here our postal workers get a mandatory ice cream hour every day.
