Posted on 11/14/2012 11:51:09 AM PST by Olog-hai
A Key West resident who police say was distraught over the presidential election results and worried about his business has apparently killed himself.
Police say they found Henry Hamiltons body in his bedroom Nov. 8, along with a living will with handwritten words Do not revive! (expletive) Obama! Two empty prescription empty pill bottles were in the dining room.

Sad that someone places that much hope in a man. I can’t stand Obama either, but I know Who reigns on the throne of Heaven.
I’m actually surprised there haven’t been more of these stories.
They’re going unreported. I know a co-worker who lost his brother to suicide last Wednesday. He passively said he thought he might’ve “been a right-winger.”
My first thought as well... he should have taken out some commies with him.
What was his business and how many employees will be affected?
Their job loss should be hung on Obamugabe.
Wait until Christmas. There have been others...this one only got attention as a result of the 'parting message'...
I guess he beat 0bama's Death Panels to the punch.
I’m thinking... Masada...
what would they do if we all went Masada on them, and they had no productive citizens to sponge off of. Without a host, the parasites would die as well.
“The man operated a tanning business...in Key West, Florida.” - comment on article
He could have spelled it completely out and it wouldn’t have been a “threat”.
The left (I know there’s a double standard) had people posting much worse than that, including direct threats, without “knocks on the door”.
According to the article, a tanning business. Doesn’t say how many employees he had.
There are people who have devoted their whole lives to starting and growing their own business. Oboma has taken it all away from them just so the democrat base, who has never done anything to help anyone (not even themselves) can have more free handouts.
Lives are being destroyed so democrats can get free Obomaphnoes.
It just isn't right.
That’s right, tweeters who threatened Gov. Romney on Twitter still have their accounts and were likely not even investigated.
It wasn't one of "his people" (Holder) doing the knocking...
The tanning tax (paid only by white people) was probably hard enough on the guy already. Add Obomacare and "tax the rich" to that, and the man probably had nothing left.
But hey, at least the democrat bimbo down the road got free birth control pills, right?
My MIL would have if she had more courage. Seriously.
Hamiltons partner Michael Cossey told Key West police he last saw Hamilton when they watched the election results together. According to the police report, Hamilton was upset and said, If Barack gets re-elected, Im not going to be around.* Not their.
Cossey says Hamilton was anxious about his* tanning business. Police say Cossey found Hamiltons body after returning home from a night of playing cards with friends.
You know you’ve lost your damned mind when you start thinking like Klebold and Harris. Which incidentally, you are.
A tanning business in Key West?
Did he rent beach space or something?
“how do they get the sun to shine only those who pay?”
I believe in God but we’re humans...simple, emotional humans....despair is real and we have real reasons for it....
We’ll miss you, Henry. Shouldn’t have done it.
Better to die fighting.
Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. / For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. / Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. / For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
maybe he was in a tanning business which tanned animal hides like leather
The tanning tax (paid only by white people) was probably hard enough on the guy already.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
The final straw was when he was sued by A-A’s for not giving them a discount in the tanning booth because they didn’t need as much time.
Then again, why would one think there would be a profit in a tanning salon in South Florida?
As to it possibly being an ‘animal tanning company’, I find it hard to picture people with ‘partners’ being in that kind of business - and I would think that someone in Key West when mentioned with partner- if it didn’t signify ‘tennis, bridge, business etc’ one would almost have to assume it was a life style.
OK, look, if he operated a tanning business, he was in deep trouble financially no matter who got elected. They are dinosaurs. He had a bad business plan, I’m afraid. Very sad indeed. It looks as though he was gay, and the rate of suicide and mental health problems among gays is disproportionately high.
The article seems to indicate the man was a homosexual, but he was ALSO a business owner...and business owners OUGHT to know that Obamugabe is bad for the economy.
Sad to see this happen. Human life is precious, and this man’s despair is a tragedy.
Look to God, HE is above all power of men.
I’ve just said a prayer for his soul.
Needless to say: business not doing well, borrowing money up to his neck and no hope.
poor guy, I feel sorry for him
At least you showed some humanity. Others are obsessed with ferreting out that he may have been homosexual as if that makes his suicide somehow better, deserved and expected.
Since you thought of it, you first.
Jesus Christ died for the sins of all men, and I was a lost sinner once, too.
I really do think we ought to hate sin and love the sinner. Not EXCUSE the sin—stand against it, but love the person.
My heart breaks for the people who are wrapped up in sin. Some worship sex, some worship money, others worship power.
God gave us sex, God gives us financial resources, and He allows us all to have some power—some men are granted great earthly power. When those things become our idol, they become perverted. And that is sinful.
Anyway, I didn’t mean to preach. I do feel sorry for this man, and I really do pray those who were close to him are somehow touched by Christ followers who have a heart and can somehow help them through this ordeal. Such is the Christ like thing to do.
Poor guy. RIP.
