    Stabbing at Pilot Truck Stop Strawberry Plains TN

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...op/5119529002/

    All three women killed in the attack were Pilot employees, Pilot CEO Jimmy Haslam confirmed in a statement. They are Joyce Whaley, 57; Patricia Denise Nibbe, 51; and Nettie R. Spencer, 41. They were pronounced dead at the scene.A fourth victim, a female customer, remains hospitalized. Her condition was not immediately available
    .

    The suspect has been identified by the TBI as Idris Abdus-Salaam, a 33-year-old truck driver from Durham, North Carolina.
    I knew Joyce Whaley from when our office was located up in Sevier County, she worked next door. I had long since lost touch, but good friends of mine, were close friends with her.

    No one seems to have an explanation for what happened. More sadness to add to a very trying time in history.
    Treat me with respect, I'll treat you with respect. I don't care what color your skin is, your gender, sexual identity, political lean or position about eating beef. Be a decent human.

    I'm sorry.

    Judging by the name of the perp, I think we have a pretty good idea what happened.

    Thanks. Something like this highlights that you just don't know what life will bring.

    I reacted more to the idea of where the perp came from, rather than his name or probable nationality. Yes, it is a truck stop, but why in hell wait until he's 300 some-odd miles from home to lose his sanity?

    Who knows, maybe it's just the first time he got caught. Stabbing is a particularly egregious form of violence. I watch a lot of self defense and badge cam footage, I can't watch the stabbings anymore, particularly of women.

    Sounds like he is from the Middle East or North Africa.

    Sounds like another wack job who shouldn't be allowed to interface with society.

    He will no longer be interacting with society. The arriving officers (by coincidence, so I've heard) made sure of that.

    Good. Best news of the day that I've heard thus far and my day just began!
