 Why would it cost Kroger? There isn't much you can do about a gunman intent on a mass shooting. Ever since Covid started, I've been worried about something like this happening. It seems to have brought out all the crazy in people.

The spin from tv news starts immediately.  Everything probably happened on camera so prosecuting attorney won't need to consider motive and defending attorney may not want to touch that either.  It would be interesting to consider what the guy was thinking.  

A while back Kroger ordered everyone at my store to watch an exciting video produced by some Texas law enforcement professionals.  It showed a guy bringing a bag of firearms onto the sales floor, then taking a carbine to the warehouse area.  Never said why.

It matters to me.  I want to know.

Has there ever been a mass shooting like this at any Kroger brand before? What, if anything, will Kroger do for the families of the employees killed.

 There was a shooting within the last 2 years at a kroger but it wasn't mass casualties.

I work with a guy that a coworker of his was shot and killed.  The store was closed overnight.  Doors were unlocked.  The guy came in and shot a worker he didn't like.  To this day, my coworker insists that the doors remain locked overnight.

Well, they can replace the employee is with partners at a lower rate of pay. They have that going for them.

 I work at another Kings in Colorado. There will be a candle light vigil. Not sure if it's Kings-hosted, but yeah. Praying and a moment of silence and stuff.

Well, our store had a moment of silence for the victims this past Monday and you know what I thought about??? 20-year old Denny Stong who wanted to become an airline pilot...I thought about front-end manager (and Centaurus High School graduate) Rikki Olds, who had a laugh that could be heard down the aisles of King Soopers and the most bubbly personality of anyone you'd wanna meet...I thought about police officer Eric Talley, a father of seven and part-time woodworker, who was killed on the scene responding to the gunfire...I thought of shopper Kevin Mahoney, father of Erika, who walked his daughter down the aisle last summer, but will never get to see his granddaughter grow up...I thought about local actress Suzanne Fountain, gifted artist Tralona Bartkowiak, Instacart employee Lynn Murray and clothing boutique worker Jody Waters...I thought about 31-year veteran King Soopers employee and avid sports fan Teri Leiker...I thought about the employees who worked there, the customers who died while shopping, the customers who ran for their lives to escape this madman and really, everyone affected, including their families and loved ones...You see...Kroger might be glad to replace these people...New customers will replace the old ones...Oftentimes, grocery workers are not considered humans (just warm bodies or retail slaves), but you know what??? In my eyes, they will NEVER be forgotten...

R.I.P.

Denny Stong

Rikki Olds

Teri Leiker

Eric Talley

Kevin Mahoney

Lynn Murray

Tralona Bartkowiak

Jody Waters

Neven Stanisic

Suzanne Fountain

Live life. Don't work full time if you can afford it. Don't let family life slip by you and you only become a shadow of a name. Don't spend half your life saying I wish I had done that just do it. Use your vacation pay for time off. Don't let it cash out. Kroger could care less if you're dead at the end of the day. It doesn't happen often but when someone dies at the store I am employed at they are generally replaced before they are buried in the ground. That's how kroger cares about you. You are just an expendable number easily replaceable by a minimum wage nobody.

I just realized that the King Soopers & Roundy's Memorial Recognition Event was supposed to be on March 29th.  I'm not sure when they posted the notice.  Was there a message on the p a followed by 10 seconds of standing around silently?
