Virginia Man Kills Himself And His Family Over Fear Of Obama’s Reelection

A wealthy defense contractor and devout Christian from suburban Washington, D.C. fatally shot his wife, his children, and himself over fears of Barack Obama’s winning a second term, the Daily Mail reports:

Albert Peterson shot dead his wife and two sons hours after going to church because he dreaded the thought of Obama winning the election, a family friend has revealed.

A confidante of the family for the past 25 years has spoken to MailOnline about the strength and grace of the Peterson family, as well as the torment that plagued Albert which drove him to shoot dead his wife Kathleen and his two sons Christopher and Mathew at their suburban home in DC on Sunday.

A history of mental illness and a growing fear of Obama winning a second term in the White House took its toll on the mind of Mr Peterson, a wealthy defense contractor, the friend said.

Albert, 57, Kathleen, 52, Matthew, 16, and Christopher, 13, were found Tuesday just after noon inside their home in Herndon, Virgina. Co-workers reported to police that they were concerned that Mr and Mrs Peterson had not reported to work for the past two days. The preliminary police investigation indicates that Albert Peterson killed his wife and their children before taking his own life. Each of the deceased died of gunshot wounds to the upper body.

    Yeah, I bet.
     
    You just wait until the estate administrator’s auditors get through with this.  Guarantee you’ll find that Mr. Christian Businessman was up to his eyeballs in debt and had been fudging the company’s records for years trying to hide his mistress’ rent payments.

          i thought you had to be mentally ill to listen to those people. QED,

            I’m not comfortable labeling anyone who disagrees with my politics as mentally ill, especially having met my fair share of left-wing kooks as well.

            Exactly! Thanks, Matt

    I suppose his reasoning went something like this:

    1. Obama seems to want war a bit less than Romney does.

    2. Therefore, the war industry could suffer a bit if Obama is re-elected … just like Jesus suffered on the cross.

    3. Obama is a muslim, therefore he does not love Jesus.

    4. Jesus was a carpenter, and so He must have hit lots of things with a hammer.

    5. To a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    6. To a munitions contractor, everything looks like a target.

    7. There is often collateral damage in both carpentry and war. 

    8. Therefore, if Obama is re-elected, my Targets … er, Family … could suffer.

       Wow, good link- the wife was involved openly in psyops so I’m sure of two things:
      -1. that we are not being told the truth about this incident, and
      -2. we’ll never know the truth for sure.

      Almost everybody in the DC Metro area works for a defense contractor. Their house, shown in the story, is nothing compared to most places in Fairfax County–far, far from the 1%. As he was a subcontracts administrator, he never dealt with the government directly. It’s paper-pushing.
      Too much paranoia about a guy who was too paranoid.

    So the Right Wing Christian Uber-Republican murders his whole family, cause his candidate is behind in the polls. I’m sure Glenn Beck and Rush will find a way to blame this on Obama. And the sad thing is, it will make perfect sense to their followers.

       Hopefully Glenn Beck follows suit on this one!

    Let that be a lesson to you folks:
    if you think nutty thoughts about the authorities, it’ll kill you dead.
    Always remember to do what you’re told and nothing will happen.

    Kewl that a psyoper died to create a psyop. Now that’s loyalty.

      Conspiracies
      psy-ops
      allegations and what-ifs
      doubts about 
      this Blackbird
      corporation
      offering psy-op services
      there are none
      but did this woman
      this black bird
      do these things
      was she wetting her beak
      in the black ink of
      psy-ops or was her
      employment less august
      a mom a paycheck a day in the life
      that’s boring to us
      we prefer spooky
      do we guess and propose
      stoking the fires
      of conspiracy
      for campfire 
      ghost story
      thrills

    Paraphrasing a Bill Hicks joke…A guy killed himself because he hates black people and didn’t want to live if Obama won another term?  Good.  One less door knob to worry about.  Did you hear that honey?  We lost a moron! We lost a moron!

    But seriously, sad for the family.
