    A union official says Thornton had been caught on videotape stealing beer.

    The mother of Thornton's girlfriend says he had complained of racial harassment and that his bosses had not responded. But a union official tells The Associated Press that Thornton had "made no complaint of racism to us or to any federal or state agency."

    Teamsters Local 1035 official Christopher Roos says Thornton was "a disgruntled employee who shot a bunch of people."

    I remember this because of the publicity that went along the firing because of racial lines. This happen on Aug 10Th , 2010 and he was seen on video stealing beer. What causes someone to swipe a bottle of beer, get fired, and destroy your career, job, benefits and pension, then get mad when you get caught, kill a lot of innocence people and then have the nerve to say that it was cause by racial tension ? That excuse became obsolete when you became an adult
