Man shoots four co-workers, two fatally, at Fresno poultry plant

Gunman opens fire during his shift at Valley Protein, killing two execution style and wounding two more before running from the building and shooting himself.

By Diana Marcum, Los Angeles Times

November 7, 2012

Lawrence Jones didn't seem quite "himself" on Tuesday morning, a co-worker would later tell police.

He started his shift with the others at the chicken packaging plant in central Fresno at 5 a.m. They often work until 5 p.m. grateful, many said, for the overtime.

But about 8:20 a.m., just a few minutes before a meal break, Jones, 42, pulled out a .357-caliber derringer handgun and started killing. Authorities said he walked methodically up to his victims, shooting execution style.

"He walked around them in order to get very close to the intended targets, place the gun very close and fire a round," Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said ...

46. It's not always the stigma, HD. Often people who are mentally ill are in denial or simply unaware...

 

...that they have a condition that may be treatable. That is the case with my friend who committed suicide in January.

She refused to seek help for what presented as apparent major depression. I begged her for months to take advantage of services offered by the county for free, and offered to help her pay for any treatment program.

She was convinced that her state of mind was a result of her environment, and that being depressed was reasonable. Many people who are depressed say just that, but what they fail to understand is that even "situational" depression can often be treated successfully with medication or a combination of medication and therapy.

I had the police pick her up on December 7, interrupting an apparent suicide attempt. She was placed in a lock-down hospital and tended by a psychiatrist, at least one psychologist, a social worker, and nurses who are all experienced professionals. They couldn't get through to her, she would not agree to treatment. After almost 10 days she figured out the right things to say to get herself released.

She apparently made a deal with them - In exchange for freedom she had to agree to a program of treatment that included taking an anti-depressant medication and seeing a psychiatrist at a clinic that specializes in treating difficult cases including Borderline Personality Disorder. (An experienced psych nurse who is a friend of mine suggested that as a possible diagnosis weeks before her melt-down. It turns out he was probably correct.)

She didn't take her medication. She didn't go to her first appointment with the psychiatrist. The police were sent to check on her and found her at home, but there was nothing they could do. She wasn't presenting an obvious danger to herself or others, she wasn't breaking any laws, so they had to leave her alone.

Her refusal to accept treatment had nothing to do with the stigma of mental illness. She had given up.

I helped her family by taking custody of about half of her belongings after we cleaned up her apartment. I went through everything carefully to make sure I found important financial documents, photos, or anything else that might be of interest to someone. She never threw anything away, and her invoices and correspondence told a tragic story. She had been struggling with mental illness for at least the last 20 years of her life. Various doctors who were not qualified to treat mental illness took half-assed measures, prescribing drugs for depression, or OCD, or approaching her issue as an eating disorder.

They were all wrong. By the time she got to a competent psychiatrist, she was too far gone.

5. Going Postal...

By juxtaposing the historical place of rage in America with the social climate that has existed since the 1980s when Reaganomics began to widen the gap between executive and average-worker earnings the author crafts a convincing argument that these schoolyard and office massacres can be seen as modern-day slave rebellions. He presents many fascinating and unexpected cases in detail. Like slave rebellions, these massacres are doomed, gory, sometimes even inadvertently comic, and grossly misunderstood. Taking up where Bowling for Columbine left off, this book seeks to set these murders in their proper context and thereby reveal their meaning.

FRESNO, Calif. A parolee who killed two people and wounded two others on Tuesday at a California chicken processing plant where he worked moved methodically between his first three victims, putting a handgun against their head or neck before pulling the trigger, police said.

Lawrence Jones then shot 32-year-old Fatima Lopez in the back as she tried to flee then put the gun to the head of Estevan Catano and pulled the trigger but was out of bullets, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said.

Jones, 42, then went outside the Valley Protein plant, where he reloaded his gun, shot himself and died later at a hospital, the chief said ...

64. Wrong.

 

The purpose of car registration is to determine ownership of the vehicle. That is also the purpose of firearms registration, and very good case can be made that this is in the interests of public safety, since it would provide a mechanism for proving criminally irresponsible gun ownership (straw sales).

Registration does not determine the ownership of a vehicle, the title does that, I can register a vehicle owned by another party in my name as long as both parties agree, registration is a revenue generator.

Most guns used to kill people are probably purchased illegally or stolen. Do you honestly wonder how people manage to buy things which are illegal? As is pointed out often, those who purchase handguns legally are law abiding and rarely use their guns to kill. If you were intent on murder, why would you care about the legality of obtaining a gun?

As Slackmaster pointed out, we have a 10 day waiting period in California. Not a new law, just a different law, which makes sense. Why the urgency, when a waiting period might save a number of lives, especially the lives of those going through severe depression or a psychotic episode? Think about it.

Why should she abandon her possessions and life routine because she has been threatened? Your facile solutions ignore the reality of people's lives in favor of your ideology.

47. My facile solutions?

You must be kidding. I don't have solutions for hypothetical scenarios. My advice is to always consider one's options in any situation, rather than opting for a "facile solution", such as buying a gun. It doesn't get much more facile than that.

"A great many women cannot afford the disruption to their lives that decamping to a separate location would involve. Why should she abandon her possessions and life routine because she has been threatened?"

This leads me to think you have had little experience with battered women, especially those in fear of their lives. Using a gun to solve their problems, is likely to result in a far greater "disruption to their lives that decamping to a separate location".

As far as my "ideology" is concerned, it is about de-escalation in such situations, rather than impulsive, emotional, reactionary, direct confrontation.

When I used "we", it was in context of Slackmaster's post about California. Maybe these options are not available in your neck of the woods (pardon the pun).

49. The problem to be solved with a gun

is to survive the encounter. If you come up with a foolproof 100% effective way to keep that encounter from happening you'll have something. Until then we're left with scenarios, one of which is that enough planning will avoid the encounter, and there will be time to do that planning.

51. Agreed, the idea is to survive the encounter.

I'm trying to imagine how one might do that. Maybe, if one had a pause button which allowed them to take some time out to go buy a gun, learn how to use it, return to said encounter and use it. If a relationship is so volatile as to necessitate evictions and guns, it might behoove the aggrieved party to plan ahead. These situations rarely go from domestic bliss to "gotta buy me a gun" in less than 10 days.

Anyway, that was the thinking by CA lawmakers and I support that kind of thought processing.

That implies that you think she is going to go looking for the guy after she buys it. The reality is that she is buying it in the event of direct confrontation, in which case de esculation probably isn't possible.

The implications of buying a gun on emotional impulse are potentially many. The "reality" you bring up is one possible reality.
Logic dictates that if one has the time to go buy a gun and learn how to use it, one has the time to de-escalate the situation. For those who don't want to wait 10 days, then they should either be more prepared or take a bus, train or car to good old Arizona, just a few hours away, where they are probably handing out guns at the border these days.

Or, you know, they might be in some kind of emergency situation where they feel their safety is imminently in danger. Your proposal would block people with a legitimate need for a firearm in an attempt to stop people who just want to harm someone. Are you OK with that?

They always have the option of going to Arizona and getting one the same day.

So why can't everyone have that freedom? Why should only people from Arizona have that freedom?

62. My brother has a stainless one.

I've shot it a few times over the years. Nifty little (heavy) pistol.
