A co-worker of San Jose, California, gunman Sam Cassidy was left unnerved following a January 2020 confrontation with him, according to the gunman's workplace disciplinary records, which were released Thursday.

"He scares me," the co-worker reportedly said, according to documents disclosed by the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, FOX 2 of the Bay Area reported.

"If someone was to go postal, it’d be him," another employee had told a supervisor about Cassidy, quoting the co-worker who had been in the alleged confrontation with the man who on May 26 of this year would kill nine employees at a VTA rail yard before turning his weapon against himself.

NT Electoral Commission says 'avoidable' issues with prisoners' postal votes may have impacted election

  NT Electoral Commission says 'avoidable' issues with prisoners' postal votes may have impacted election Almost 200 postal votes submitted by prisoners during last year's election were rejected for "avoidable" reasons and some of them could have impacted the result in the Territory's most marginal seat, which was won by just five votes, the NT Electoral Commission says.When voters re-elected the Gunner Labor government in August, six of the NT's 25 seats were decided by fewer than 100 votes.

The confrontation had been reported to the VTA Employee Relations and the VTA Office of Civil Rights but the employee refused to identify who made the comment, FOX 2 reported.

Cassidy had shouted at the coworker for "2-3 minutes" in a morning meeting where he referred to someone in the meeting as the "most corrupt" person at the company, The Mercury News of San Jose reported.

A week after the incident, an employee sent an email that said Cassidy "does not have anything in his disciplinary history that would seem to be of any concern at this point to investigate further" and Cassidy was never formally disciplined over the incident.

The argument was over vacation days, The Mercury News reported.

California Groups Blast State Agency for Proposal to Require Workers to Keep Wearing Masks

  California Groups Blast State Agency for Proposal to Require Workers to Keep Wearing Masks "If you are fully vaccinated, (under CDC recommendations) you don't need to wear a mask inside or outside. That's the science!," said the California Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Allan Zaremberg.The California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (Cal/OSHA) is set to meet Thursday to consider new workplace rules that would permit workers to take off their masks only if everyone in the vicinity has been vaccinated against COVID-19, the Associated Press reported. More than five dozen business organizations wrote a letter to the board and called the proposed rules an "inconsistent standard.

"So far, there is no indication of records in Cassidy’s VTA personnel file of any formal discipline for threatening behavior or violence during his 20-year career at VTA," the VTA said this week, according to FOX 2.

The transit agency found three other less volatile formal disciplinary actions against Cassidy in the last two years.

On July 16, 2019, Cassidy was sent home without pay for two days for insubordination, accused of not properly following the company’s radio sign-out policy.

On Oct. 21, 2020, Cassidy allegedly refused to take mandatory CPR training because of the threat of the coronavirus and still didn’t take it after the company made what it viewed as a reasonable accommodation for him.

On Nov. 28, 2020, he left work without permission after using the radio for a personal conversation, which is against company policy.

The VTA said it was still going through thousands of documents, including emails, that may shed more light on Cassidy’s time with the agency, according to FOX 2.
