#Occupy Raleigh Protester Shoots Up Food Store… Injures 3 People… Then Shoots Himself in Barn

Yup. They’re exactly like the tea party.
#Occupy Raleigh protester Tariq Taylor shot up a Food Lion grocery store in North Carolina injuring 3 people.
Taylor escaped and shot himself in a barn.

Tariq went on the shooting spree after a dispute with his partner, Jason Jeffery, a Food Lion employee.
WRAL reported:

A man accused of shooting three people at a Wendell Food Lion Wednesday night has killed himself, police announced Thursday.

A homeowner on Marshburn Road called 911 after finding the body of Tariq James Taylor, 21, in a barn behind the house. Authorities have not said how Taylor killed himself.

Wendell Police Chief Vance Johnson said Taylor shot a man and two women inside the Food Lion, at 2837 Wendell Blvd., around 7:15 p.m. after a domestic dispute with his partner, Jason Jeffery, who works at the store. The gun used in the shooting was recovered in the store.

Investigators say Jeffery walked into an office and Taylor fired about 10 shots through the door, striking Jeffery multiple times. Bullets also hit two women – another employee and a woman interviewing for a job.

Jeffery, 20, was in critical condition at WakeMed Friday. Laquanda Beecher, 19, and Shaquita Baker, 22, both of Wendell, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

As Bob Owens noted – when Tariq was not shooting up grocery stores he attended #Occupy Raleigh protests.

    Ths is what OWS democracy looks like. Nothing to see here.

    Just another brick in the wall.

    Is this a trifecta,
    a homosexual,
    a minority,
    an OWS liberal,

    Yikes. These people are now camping out at a vacant lot a couple of blocks from where I work in Raleigh. They have a porta potty and tents. They seem dug in for the winter. It was warm this week and I had my window down when I drove by. I had to put it up because of the oder. At least one of them won’t be back.

    Flipping out and shooting up a Food Lion?

    I do not blame him at all for putting a round into his own brain bucket after that embarrassing indiscretion.

  • dunce

    When a crazy man in Tucson shot up the place the left was quick to blame Palin and Limbaugh. Whose rhetoric will they blame this on?

  • Texas_Treeroach

    Let’s hope that while Tariq was doing away with himself, no chickens or other barnyard animals were injured.

    (It’s best to get PETA involved, just to be sure.)

  • So, we have Tariq, Laquanda and Shaquita. Was Shanaynay home sick? What do some people have agaainst frakkin normal names?

    Just sayin’

  • Harry Randolph

    I’m glad he shot himself in a barn. At least he didn’t get blood all over the food in the store. Why don’t the police just round up these people and arrest them for vagrancy, on the first day they show up, and give them about five years in prison?

  • MrGoodWench

    When Hussein says ” get in their faces”
    and ” punish your enemies”
    and ” take out the sons of b1*ches”
    the Tariqs of America
    ” bring a gun” .
    This is 100% Hussein’s and Dem party’s fault.

  • L.E. Liesner

    I wonder how Obama is going to equate this to the Tea Party.

  • Woody

    Is “barn” a euphemism for “butt” ?

  • bear

    The name tariq threw me for a second. Then it all made sense. If he WAS an islamist AND a homosexual, he WAS on borrowed time with the umma anyway. Then he was jilted by his paramour. Obviously the last straw.

    Laquanda and Shaquita were just infidels in the wrong place.

    “Then Shoots Himself in Barn”. At first I thought it was a typo, then I figured it out. “Oops there goes another rubber tree”

    h/t Maggie’s Farm..The Ultimate Devastating Price of Government Dependency:

    ..”While my cousins received free cradle-to-grave government handouts, they paid a devastating price for their dependency. They lost themselves — their self-esteem, pride, and dignity. They lost the joy of success after failure. They lost the pursuit of their dreams. They lost the experience of developing their God-given gifts and talents. For perceived security, my cousins willingly remained slaves on the Democrats’ government plantation.”

  • So…
    He shot himself in HIS barn? Or somebody else’s barn? “A” barn is not very specific.
    I hope he shot himself in his own barn. (Where ever that may be [or hurtful])

  • gus

    I remember all the Tea Party folks shooting stuff. It was awful. Especially that Michelle Bachmann and that Sarah Palin. They were the most violent. And they’re dumb too. They don’t support baby killing.

  • Bloodless Coup

    FYI, Tariq is a Muslim name. Coincidence? I think not.

  • How frustrating it must be to think (to really think) that the world will / ought to provide for your whims w/o effort on your own part. It can have two outcomes: you realize your a dependent parasite; you go through life struggling with reality, rather than struggling to become independent. It temps one to lash out, I’d guess.

  • BevPerDon’t

    Tariq was a fine boy. He didn’t mean to harm Laquanda and Shaquita, well, other than to shoot them. But they will be okay. Occupy will raise up all of his little children, no problem.

    GOODWENCH. You forgot. “They bring a KNIFE, we bring a GUN.”

    Obama is being stewed in his own PUTRID JUICES. Occupy is ACORN, SEIU, AFL-CIO and TEAMSTERS, plus ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA.

    the ruling junta is setting all this Ow-ies stuff up. Then they can use the same techniques of police action and breaking up camps against regular people demonstrating against the fascist policies being enacted, or all the jobs being scuttled like in scotching ‘XL’ oil line
    Have you read of the EPa requiring permits for rain run-off on public lands and private. That is way all this F and F is out now: to distract the public from the confiscation of private lands.
    All the permits will completely tie up all land and businesses.
    It is a disaster.

    I really hope the FBI is trying to figure out who is behind this chicken-$hit revolution…I have no doubt that Van Jones, ACORN, and ultimately Hussein himself are the backers. There is no way in hell that these OWS derelicts, attics, and criminals put together a nation-wide movement on their own…

    None of us have the luxury of choosing either our parents or our given names; names which if found by our peer group in youth to be uncommon, can be painful as this ‘Cracker’ well knows. Pity the two unintended victims; one working, the other seeking work.

    Just sayin’.

  • Patty

    Crazies are all over, they could snap at anytime. We all see them and all the cops can do is take them to the emergency rooms or if you are lucky enough a halfway house until they are fit to leave.

    In many cases they are just in holding cell until the next day and released. Sounds crazy but true. Americans have been lucky more mentally disturbed haven’t cracked on them.

    So I’m sure OWS will claim he wasn’t “really” a member of the OWS protest. This “movement” has become a dangerous joke. You stoke people’s hatred of “the system” then run away and try to pretend that you had nothing to do with them going off the deep end.

    The only thing left is for the OWS crowd to figure out they’ve been manipulated and used by the people they thought were their allies–unions, communists, etc.–who are bailing on them as fast as they can (see the December 12 shutdown of West Coast ports that was going to “Shut down the capitalist system.” Unions have told them to stick it. So where do they go when they figure out that, like all leftist pawns, they’ve been abandoned because their cause has become too unpopular and is no longer useful to the left? I’m sure some will crack like this guy. Others will go on to get real jobs and realize what idiots they were. The rest will become Democrats.

    Let’s say someone who attended a Tea Party rally later went out and shot some people due to unrelated issues (unrelated to his reason for attending the TP protest). Let’s say this TP protestor shot these people over a domestic dispute that took place a good distance away from the TP rally. I know what the liberal media would say: they would tie it into the TP in exactly the same way as the Gateway Pundit has done to OWS, as well as most of you irresponsible, non-thinking commenters. I at least try to be a thinking, conservative Christian– and my first thought when reading what this disturbed, misguided attempted murderer did was to think about the people he hurt, including his own family, and the fact that he is now in hell for eternity. A soul lost forever. I do not see this in any way related to the OWS movement (not excusing the vileness of the OWS), nor would I stoop so low as to tie a horrible event such as this to the OWS people. I do not so easily jump on any bandwagon.

    Tru if you are going to comment at least spell odor correctly. Anyway I have been by there and there was no odor to speak of. What Tariq did was horrible and not representative of the movement as a whole. I am sure your racist and paranoid minds won’t let you see that though. Keep shopping, everything is fine.
