Man Commits Suicide Over Obama Victory, scrawled "F*** Obama" on will

Man Commits Suicide Over Obama Victory

A troubled Florida man appears to have chosen death over another four years of President Obama, police say. Officers who had been requested to conduct a welfare check found the body of Henry Hamilton, 64, next to two empty bottles of anxiety and schizophrenia medication in the Key West home he shared with his male partner, the Miami Herald reports. Hamilton, owner of a tanning salon, was stressed about his business and was "very upset about the election results," his partner told police. The words "F*** Obama!" were found scrawled on Hamilton's will.

3. Bingo...This is so sad.

I have to help healthcare professionals try to help people with psuchiatric disorders on an emergency basis almost daily. It is so sad that these people live such tormented lives.

2. He was gay and hated the president?

 

It is sad that his mental illness made him susceptible to the republican rhetoric. Some people think extreme racism is a form of mental illness. Maybe they are right.

7. He's a victim of Fox/Limbaugh propaganda

They made it seem like it would be the end of the world if Obama was re-elected.
