Key West Man Upset Over Presidential Election Kills Himself, Writes "F*#* Obama" On His Will

Key West Man Upset Over Presidential Election Kills Himself, Writes "F*#* Obama" On His Will


A tanning salon owner in Key West who increasingly blamed his personal struggles on President Obama warned his partner that "I'm not going to be around long" if the president won reelection last week.

Two days after the president's victory over Mitt Romney, Keys police found Henry Hamilton dead of a drug overdose, the words "Fuck Obama" scrawled on his will.

Hamilton, who was 64 years old, had increasingly struggled with his mental health and his tanning business, Tropical Tan, reports the Key West Citizen this morning.

"(He) was very upset about the election results," his partner, Michael Cossey, told police.

Cossey returned home to an apartment he shared with Hamilton late on November 8 and fell asleep; soon afterward, a police officer stopped by after a friend of Hamilton's asked to check in on him.

as opposed to lying out in heat and humidty and insects and crowds to get a tan.

The insanity of broiling one's skin via either method is another issue.

Nowadays tanning salons do a LOT of spray tan service. And it's more pleasant to lay in a tanning bed for 20 min than to deal with heat, sand, bugs and gawking people.

93. There are dozens of them at CVS

lot cheaper and safer than any tanning salon. Besides, the blasted Florida sun is so HOT (I live here and RUN from the sun) you can get a tan just from running from you car to a store, and even driving INSIDE you car, if you don't have tinted glass.

I've seen far too many 40 and 50 year old Florida women who look like thousand year old Mummy's from all that sun. I mean that quite litterally. It is pathetic and very, very sad. Yet, they think they are BEAUTIFUL. I had one young enough to be my daughter look at me (60s) in shock when I told her how old I was. I AVOID the SUN, Lady.

22. exactly

the right wingers are correct in their anger. The problem is that they have been fed the lie that Obama and the democrats are going to do pretty much exactly what the republicans were actually going to do. Destroy this country.

I know most were eager to believe all the fox noise anyway, but they have been fed totally non truths to the point of being ready to chew off their foot to escape Obamacare.

Ist amendment rights or no, Fox and Limpballs and the like are stirring up violence and feelings of doom and desperation in the gullible, and it needs to stop. It needs to start with Fox being barred from being called a news source. They are a lunatic, America hating, violence loving, cult. Truth in the media needs to be upheld.

I get that sexuality is but one part of a person's identity but you'd think it would have been a dominant issue (if not a completely dominant one) this election, due to the stark contrast between the candidates and the importance of the issue.

33. The consequences of mad-dog politics

At the very least, the 'birther' and 'Muslim' and secret socialist propaganda helped make Obama's election the tipping point for a man who needed help.
All this secessionism, the anguish and despair we see in the red-state of mindset in America is based largely on lies and distortions about Obama and his policies. The 'death panels' and the 'apology tour' and 'terrorist' are not just a matter of give and take under the rubric of 'all is fair in politics'. It is an irresponsible instigation of fear and ignorance that has real consequences.
No, you cannot say that the right wing killed him but they did give a desperate man one more nightmare to escape.

Note to Republicans: you might be jaded and you might say that it is all politics as usual but some people actually believe what you say and we all are a lot worse off for it.

this is the second time i have explained it. you went for the lazy accusation first. you basically called me a liar in your second post.

and you ignored that i honestly put out that i had NOT seen the whole thread of replies, only these two posts. and had no interest in looking at the thread.

57. "rw talking machine is guilty. they created this."

precisely. They really consider themselves entertainers, after all they are in the business for profit. FOX has the right to tell lies as "news", and this is what it leads to.

52. He might have blamed Obama

for his failing business because of the tanning tax. We had a bunch of tanning salons around here up in arms whenever it was first brought into play because they screamed it was going to cost them customers.

I'm all for it. I compare it to the cigarette/alcohol tax.

59. Being addicted to the conservative propaganda machine has warped many a mind.

Expect to see more of this between now and inauguration day.

81. So is the Tea Party now the Kool-Aid Party instead?

Seems like it if the delusion they peddle is causing mentally unstable people to off themselves.

82. For all those saying what a selfish man he was

He apparently gave large sums of money to AIDS charities and was suffering depression. He was on some heavy duty meds (he ODed on them) including Seroquil. This is a very sad story about a very depressed man.

88. That's a horrible thing to say

This man was not a criminal or a tyrant; he was a mentally ill man who just had different political views than we do.

We should all be on the same side against disease and death, including mental illness and suicide.
