The gunman who shot dead 12 people at a Virginia Beach municipal building had been facing disciplinary action for a violent fight at work, according to a report. DeWayne Craddock, 40, was still employed as an engineer with the Department of Public Utilities when he went on his shooting rampage Friday, killing 12 and injuring several others, including a cop. But he recently started showing serious behavioral problems and got into physical “scuffles” with other city workers, a source told The New York Times. The source told the paper that the troubles had escalated in the week leading up to the

Comments:

The important thing here is that no one was reprimanded for suspending the increasingly violent African-American from his job.

We hear so many times “why are there no black mass shooters”? Is it me or has anyone else seen anything before this article confirming that a black person committed this atrocity? When I heard Virginia Beach, it’s the first thing I thought based on demographics, having covered the area earli7in my career. I am assuming the MSM does not want people to know this.

I wonder what the violent altercation was before the mass shooting. Seems like workplaces need to be 'on alert' for employees who are potential threats to the safety of others.

I worked in an office with an employee who was making death threats and got into two fights with coworkers. He was suspended for two weeks without pay after the first fight (mostly verbal), but after the second fight (worse than the first fight), he was suspended pending an investigation, then fired. He was a minority, but not a protected one. He was Asian.

Off on a tangent a bit. I'm always suspicious when the term "engineer" is tossed out there. This isn't just the media, but I've had relatives who have said things to the effect that their friend is an engineer at Boeing or some such, and yet spends a lot of time going to the track. Craddock was probably a technician not a degreed engineer. A little bit of searching revealed he was a cannon crewman (artillery) with the VA National Guard as a specialist (E-4). If he was a true engineer he would have been an officer likely leading a combat engineer unit or as an engineer staff officer.

I don't know, Numero Nueve, but I read in another article that Mr. Craddock had a BS degree in Civil Engineering from Old Dominion University. He also held licensure as a Professional Engineer from the Commonwealth of Virginia's Board for Architects, Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, Certified Interior Designers and Landscape Architects. So indeed Mr Craddock is a bona fide engineer unless there is another DeWayne Craddock residing in Virginia Beach, VA and practicing engineering. I'd be interested in seeing if the autopsy reveals some sort of brain trauma or tumor that might have set him off.

When you iz black you doesn't have no behavioral problems..... you iz a relative of the Chicago punk and you has to live under white oppression. Reason for his shooting no doubt wuz the fact that they did not make him de president of something or other at the Dept. of Public Utilities.

The semi-silence is deafening. DeWayne doesn't fit the fictional narrative so this story is going straight down the memory hole ASAP. Had this freak been a white guy the breaking news scrolls would be everywhere all the time, with constant pressers and every phony CNN/MSNBC analyst from here to Bumf*que dive-bombing the Lofos with bogus anti-Trump accusations.

Totally agree, #9. An engineer - a tables-referencing, data collecting solution seeker is going to find another answer to the problem of having gotten himself fired other than mowing down a dozen people. I bet describing DeWayne as a ‘technician’ would be generous.

#1 is correct. When the story first hit the news and there was no description of the murderer I knew he was a violent black man. This will be buried by the MSM as quickly as they can. Call me a rascist but there is something very wrong with black males in our society. Not all, I know some who are the kindest, best people I have ever known but something is horribly wrong going on in the black community.

#11. I do stand corrected. Craddock graduated from ODU with a degree in Civil Engineering and passed his certification. But it does seem strange a guy like that would resort to violence in the workplace.

Federal rules bar Medicaid coverage of sexual treatments for all recipients, not just sex offenders. Yet state Medicaid officials approved $930,000 in improper payments for the drugs between 2012 and 2018, according to the audit released by state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and first reported by The Associated Press. According to the audit, 47 of those Medicaid recipients were also state sex offenders, who are prohibited from getting Medicaid-covered sexual

Kay Ivey over the weekend, will require sex offenders convicted of abusing a child under the age of 13 to take drugs that block the production of testosterone and hormones as a condition of parole. If a convict refuses to take the medication, they’ll be considered in violation of parole and immediately taken back into custody, the bill states. They’ll also be required to pay for the medication.

Second a “carbon tax” is the holy grail for the totalitarian globalist world view. The concept of a tax on carbon emissions was developed inside the same financial network of multinational monetary interests that control the current global trade system.
