I think this is the first time I have heard of someone calling 911 after murdering a bunch of people to discuss his actions. This is absolutely the craziest thing I think I have heard of in my life time.
This dude was absolutely cool,calm, and collected. Whatever was going at that job, is the peice to this puzzle as to what drove him to kill these people in point blank range and to then off himself.

In dispassionate detail, Thornton recounted for Trooper William Taylor his rationale for massacring fellow workers at the Hartford Distributors warehouse.
“Uh, you probably want to know the reason why I shot this place up,” Thornton, 34, told Taylor in the call, released yesterday. “This place here is a racist place.
“They treat me bad over here. They treat all the other black employees bad over here, too,” said Thornton, who was black. “So I just took it into my own hands, and, uh, handled the problem.
“I wish I could have got more of the people.”
Despite the carnage, the shooter, who had smuggled his guns into the warehouse in a red metal lunchbox, said he felt “relaxed.”
“I’m not going to kill anybody else,” he said. “I just wanted to tell my story so you can play it back, anyway.”
