Today in Labor History

Aug. 20, 1986
Deranged relief postal service carrier Patrick “Crazy Pat” Henry Sherrill shoots and kills 14 co-workers, and wounds another six, before killing himself at an Edmond, Oklahoma, postal facility. Supervisors had ignored warning signs of Sherrill’s instability, investigators later found; the shootings came a day after he had been reprimanded for poor work. The incident inspired the objectionable term “going postal.”
