Cleveland County, OK


Alton Nolen, a convert to Islam, beheaded a co-worker and attacked a second person after being fired from his job at a food company. While the murder has been cast as workplace violence, Nolen's social media posts included a picture of Osama bin Laden and a beheading, in addition to anti-Semitic and anti-American comments.
