3. and when US soldiers killed themselves, from PTSD,
due to being involved in that evil fuckwit George W. Bush's frikking armed misadventure, or, when a million Iraqis died involuntarily from the same clusterfuck - the media played it dumb.
i rather doubt the President's re-election had much, if anything, to do with this suicide.
i think the operative phrases (from the article) are:
"very stressed about his business"; "friends were also apparently aware he was struggling" & "Police officer Pablo Rodriguez reportedly arrived at the condo Cossey and Hamilton shared, where Cossey was sleeping on the couch after returning home in the early morning hours".
(Cossey being the guy's partner, who quoted the dead man as saying: "if Barack gets reelected, I'm not going to be around".)
