We live in a world turned inside out. The Omar Thornton story continues to get stranger and stranger as the refutation of the racism he, along with his white girlfriend and her mother utilized as a defense against his malicious actions in the murdering of nine white people has occurred.
Yet now, a 911 call Thornton during the melee has been released, where he calmly states that he wished he could have killed more than those already dying from his hate-fueled hand:
After killing eight people, Omar Thornton calmly called 911 and talked to a state police dispatcher for nearly four minutes, saying he "took things into his own hands" and regretted not killing more people before hanging up and killing himself as three police officers closed in.Here is the 911 call that he placed after he already killed defenseless white racists. Who is going to miss white racists, though? Thornton has shown the future for all white people to see what fate awaits them, as the national media has hardly discussed the white dead bodies, but spent the majority of time writing copy and discussing at length about the Black dead body and the evil that he endured at the hand of racists which finally drove him to kill them - righteously.
"Hi, is this 911? This is Omar Thornton. The shooter over in Manchester,'' Thornton calmly told Trooper William Taylor.
"You probably want to know the reason why I shot this place up. Basically this is a racist place,'' Thornton told Taylor. "They treat me bad over here. They treat all other black people bad over here, too, so I just took things into my own hands and handled the problem. I wish I could have gotten more of the people."
Thornton was calling from the offices of Hartford Distributors Inc. moments after he killed eight co-workers and injured several more. Several times he told Taylor that he was "relaxed."
"I'm not going to kill nobody else here. I just want to tell my story so that you can play it back,'' Thornton said.
Several times, Taylor asked Thornton where he was in the building, but Thornton refused to say, hinting that he was going to kill himself.
"When they find me, everything will already be all over," Thornton said.
Thornton told the trooper that he sees the SWAT team in Army gear going past him. At one point he contemplates giving himself up.
"Well -- I guess, I guess maybe I'll surrender … nah. They can come and get me, have to come and get me,'' he said.
Thornton was calling from a cellphone. That's why his 911 call went to Troop H and not to Manchester police. The cellphone was not his, sources said.
Manchester Police Lt. Christopher Davis said that police found Thornton's cellphone in his car. The battery was dead and police have sent it to a forensic laboratory to be analyzed, Davis said.
Thornton's girlfriend and family members have said that he had evidence of racial discrimination against him on that phone, including pictures that he took of a hangman's noose drawn on the wall of the employee bathroom.
Several times, Thornton referred to Hartford Distributors as a racist company.
"You don't know where I'm at, but, I don't know, maybe you can trace it from this phone call. But, yeah, these people here are crazy, they treat me bad from the start here, racist company. They treat me bad, I'm the only black driver they got here,'' Thornton said.
Company officials have repeatedly denied the allegations of racism, saying that Thornton never filed any complaints about being discriminated against. At a press conference Thursday, union officials said that 14 of 69 union workers are minorities, including four African Americans.
One article has dared ask where the true injustice is: in the continued discussion of racism by the company and the white employees there, or the credulity by the media to accept the racist charges without actual evidence to support such assertions made by a mass-murdering Black guy and his white girlfriend and her white mother?:
What is injustice? A fired employee kills eight former co-workers, each with multiple gunshots, then takes his own life -- but not before "explaining" that his deranged actions grew out of racism at the company.In the 1989 movie Batman, a song by Prince can be heard at the beginning of the film with the line, "I've seen the future and it will be."
There's not a shard of evidence of racism by Hartford Distributors Inc., the Manchester beer wholesaler.
No complaints of any kind were lodged with any agency or organization by the killer, Omar Thornton, who was black — or by anyone else over race.
No one other than the killer's girlfriend claims to have seen or heard racist graffiti or taunts against Thornton.
Two days later, in the midst of mourning, the company president is forced to stand before the hungry masses of the media to respond to this drivel by a cold-blooded killer and his girlfriend. Are you kidding me?
The outrage here is that Ross Hollander was even put in this position, a victim of our society's obsession with instantly getting to the bottom of stories that never should be stories in the first place. He's no less a victim than Shirley Sherrod, the U.S. Department of Agriculture official who was wrongly fired last month in a rush to judgment over a videotape that appeared to reveal racism.
As it happens, Hollander has a bit of a record when it comes to civil rights and race relations. Going over his record isn't necessary to counter the sad accusations contained in Thornton's last breaths. But the facts help to show what a cruel injustice the system foisted on Hollander at a moment when he, his family, his employees, and chiefly the families of the deceased, were most in need of sympathy.
Hollander's recent civic work, and his family's philanthropy, especially in the Jewish community, are by now well told. Less widely cited this week is that back in the '70s, he was on the board of the region's Urban League. He also was active with the United Negro College Fund, something he only talked about when I pressed him on it in a conversation Thursday.
In 2006 he and two other prominent citizens brought a lawsuit against their town, Bloomfield, to uphold a voters' referendum for much-needed bonding for the schools, which are almost entirely black. "This is not a man that just gives money," said John Wolfson, the lawyer in that case. "Ross spent his time getting this referendum passed by organizing people, getting people in the fold."
In that integrated town, Hollander, 63, is known to have what one friend called an "integrated social life."
"If you go to a Ross party or event, you will see blacks and whites," said David Pudlin, a former state House majority leader.
With the mainstream reporting of the Omar Thornton case, you have seen the future. Murder of white people if they have perceived, if unfounded and unconfirmed views on race, that would be deemed unfavorable, unflattering and not sycophantic of Black people = a worthy and acceptable target of murder, perhaps collateral damage in the Brave New World that is being erected.
There must be many casualties on the road to Black Run America's (BRAs) total dominance, and the nine dead in Connecticut are but a reminder of this collateral damage. More can be found here.
Rumors have long maintained that OJ Simpson was set to play The Terminator in the film of the same name. Well, Thornton was an emotionless killing machine on that fateful day in Connecticut when he gunned down nine white people and then, calmly and cooly told the 911 operator of his regret of not killing "more of them."
I've seen the future and it will be...
