someonesomewhere Posted January 28, 2009 Report Share Posted January 28, 2009 Man Kills His Wife and 5 Children http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/28/us/28family.html?hpLOS ANGELES — A man shot and killed his wife and five young children — including two sets of twins — before taking his own life Tuesday, possibly out of despair from losing a job, the authorities said....The letter said the man and his wife worked as medical technicians at a Kaiser Permanente hospital in Los Angeles, and had recently lost his job after a dispute with an administrator, the station reported.The administrator, the letter said, had asked them on an unspecified day why they had come to work, and then added, “you should have blown your brains out.”Two days after the confrontation, the letter said, they lost their jobs and began planning their deaths and that of their children.“Why leave the children to a stranger?” the man said his wife had asked. “So, here we are,” he wrote, according to the station....On any of several levels, I just feel ugh. Killing his family out of despair and suddenly, while horrific, I find the planning of it even worse. And, if the wife was involved and complicit as well, double ugh.I don't care what the future holds, if it were me I'd sooner cap the administrator than my family. Or better yet, find an ambulance chasing attorney and sue Kaiser and the administrator. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
