Man Shoots Himself, Family Over Obama Re-Election

Man commits suicide over financial fears

From the Grio.

A Virginia man, who killed himself, his wife and his two children allegedly was paranoid over the possible election of President Barack Obama. The man, Albert Peterson, 57, shot himself and his family hours after going to church, according to reports.

Peterson reportedly had a history of mental illness. Friends said he was under pressure at his job with a defense contractor, fearing that cuts in defense spending would cost him his job. Defense cuts are on the horizon in Washington, as Democratic and Republican members of Congress failed to make a deal, causing a political stalemate on spending and deficit reduction.

The bodies of Peterson, his wife, 52, and sons, who were 16 and 13, were discovered Tuesday inside their Virginia home.
