Man Kills Himself and His Family Out of Fear that Obama Would be Re-elected

Filed under: Politics,World News |

In the list of tragic stories that we hear in the midst of the celebration of another four years of Obama, we have this one.  A man felt so concerned that his rights were being taken away by President Obama that he killed himself and his entire family.  The voter appeared to have some serious psychiatric problems, and it’s sad that he and others didn’t realize that we can all get along as a country if we stand together. Hating one another is not the answer.

One of our bloggers posted the article without realizing that it was actually a month old.  But since we hadn’t reported it, we thought we’d share anyway.  Also, it’s still sad, no matter when the event took place.

The friend said Albert Peterson, a defense contractor, had a history of paranoia and was also affected by a favorite uncle’s recent suicide. On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that Peterson, his wife Kathleen and their two sons, Matthew and Christopher, were found dead in their home.

According to The Mail, authorities believe Peterson shot his wife and the children before turning the gun on himself. Maggie told the newspaper that his family had a history of mental illness; his father killed himself when Peterson was young, and the death of his mother five years ago, she said, nearly drove him to suicide before Kathleen saved him.

  1. Its a tragedy that he felt that he had to kill his whole family because the President was re-elected. But, at the same time, he was mentally ill and someone should have seen that so this could have been prevented.

  7. White people have a history of committing suicide in this country; the only reason why insurance companies do not pay out when one commits suicide…

    My suggestion, is for white people to continue to do what they do best. “Go Kill Yourself”…

  12. I am sorry that this happend. If it is true. America is responsible for this sad tragedy. They tought hate to as many people as possible, And it lasted for generations. Today this man’s family had to pay the price. This is a sad sick story. If he had taken his time, he might have appreciated our President. Hate will keep you in darkness a long time.

  13. Gov. Romney looks and acts as if he had a nervis brake down That is what hate will do to you. The republic party knows that he is sick. Most of them are embarressed and try to stay away from him. Mr. Ryan knew it first. After listening to some of the things that he was saying, the twisted lies. Ryan was hoping if they got in he would take over the presidency, because a sick man are dangerous. Then he would become president. Romney is a sick men.
