Former Alabama Postal Employee Indicted For Attempted Murder, Delay of mail

Montgomery, Alabama – United States Postal employee Arthur Darby, Jr. was indicted by a federal Grand Jury for the attempted murder of two postal employees, the use of a firearm in connection to a crime of violence, and delay of the United States mail, announced United States Attorney George L. Beck, Jr.

On December 1, 2011, at approximately 6:30 p.m., Darby, a part-time mail handler, went to work at the Main Post Office located at 6701 Winton Blount Boulevard in Montgomery, Alabama. After entering the post office, he began shooting at two postal employees. Law enforcement was immediately called and caught Darby. Darby was in the State of Alabama custody until his federal arrest.

An indictment merely alleges that crimes have been committed, and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If convicted, Darby faces a possible sentence of life imprisonment.

This case is being investigated by the United States Postal Inspectors and the Montgomery Police Department and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Susan Redmond.

  1. Ross the GOP from FL, is evil, when the federal employees who make less than the average wage in private industry, signed to work for the Postal/ Federal workforce, they signed a contract, so either Ross is arrogant or a complete uninformed moron, as many former registered GOP voters, have changed to the no party affiliation, Congress and Federal managers /Postal Managers are the only overpaid people, the Supplement is part of the contract workers signed for years ago, which bridges one to Social Security, if Ross and/or Issa, and/or Cantor try to take this away, we have employees who will not retire due to the Poverty level of the FERS retirement system, the average pension for Federal/ Postal craft employees is 50-53k annually, even 30 years gets you only 15,900 dollars a year, if that much, seems to many “Organized Workers” that this scenario of the GOP hacking workers benefits has become similar to the “French Revolution”, and heads will literally roll,with the GOP heads the First to go.

  2. Now the Morons in Congress will try to perpetuate an inherently evil organization, please Allah !, Let it (USPS) die !
    Management not only was abusive, used threats and Intimidation, against employees, but now the 99% overpaid , will get a better FERS retirement than you the craft, slash and burn, in fact , find Korans, and leave them burning in front of USPS buildings and / or Post Offices, revenge is sweet saith the Imam’s !
    In offices in the WNYD, Supervisors and PM’s disappear daily, shopping, drinking at the bars, sex with the craft at the local motel or some other EAS, great bunch!
