We just learned of an unfortunate workplace violence story out of Henderson, Kentucky.  An employee of Atlantis Plastics went on a shooting rampage and killed 6 fellow employees before turning the weapon on himself after an argument with his supervisor.  This is obviously a horrible tragedy.

Coincidentally, I just met with Barry Nixon, Executive Director of the National Institute for Prevention of Workplace Violence and we were just talking about the fact that the number of incidents of workplace murders has been on the increase in the last year after declining significantly throughout the last 10 years.  Barry pointed to the increase in background checks as one reason the number had been declining.
