Please, everyone take a deep breath, lets all cry for all the people involved. This is not a time for blame or frivolity. There will be time enough later. I grieve for the families who have lost loved ones, including the shooter's. I hurt for the company, the survivors, the people of Henderson, and even our nation as we must deal with another employee's inability to deal with issues again.

Please respect the monumental impact of this tragedy.

This strikes a kind of "back home" chord with me. I'm originally from a neighboring county of Henderson. Who knows, maybe I or my parents knew some people who were in the factory at the time. I'll definitely be checking and re-checking the news to find out.

At any rate, my heart goes out to the injured victims and their families as well as the families of the murdered.

jcm I just moved from Union County. I had to stop and think where that plant was. It's out on 60 west by Gibbs. Read it on Channel 14 newsbrief emails I signed up for then watched it on CNN Headline News. It's rough hearing about something like that. I can't see any argument worth going postal over.

Yep, it's on US 60 b/t US 41-A (Dixon Road) and KY 425 (South Henderson Bypass). A very industrial part of town, indeed.

People have gone postal over much less, unfortunately.

I'm originally from Webster Co. and visit Henderson 3-4 times annually. So I'm fairly familiar with the area.

Normal people don't react to a argument like that, I'm thinking this guy was carrying around more problems than we know about. Perhaps the argument was a breaking point for him. But never the less a tragedy.

Go to Meta Redirect Code and read the timeline of events that night. When you click on that site it will sometimes take you to the Evansville Courier. Just look at the top and click on The Gleaner.

According to one of his co-workers in the time line of events he was already upset about something when he clocked in on the job. Maybe this guy was dealing with problems that he never talked to anyone about, and what happened at work just sent the man over the edge. We just never know what goes on inside another persons head.


I had a guy that worked for me back in 1996 driving one of my trucks in Florida that I had to fire because of his temper. He was really a nice guy and a hard worker, but he just couldn't control his temper. When he got mad about something he went into a rage, I had to fire him because of too many customer complaints. He would take his anger out on property and tear up things, which is good I guess rather than take his anger out on other people.

The Courier-Journal today has the tape of the 911 calls. Look at the tabs in the left hand corner and click on shooting.
