(Newser) – A troubled Florida man appears to have chosen death over another four years of President Obama, police say. Officers who had been requested to conduct a welfare check found the body of Henry Hamilton, 64, next to two empty bottles of anxiety and schizophrenia medication in the Key West home he shared with his male partner, the Miami Herald reports. Hamilton, owner of a tanning salon, was stressed about his business and was "very upset about the election results," his partner told police. The words "F*** Obama!" were found scrawled on Hamilton's will.

Mental instability took him to the brink. Hate reinforced by media outlets like Fox and Limbaugh must have pushed him over.

His suicide was largely due to his mental disabilities and nothing to do with the re-election of President Obama. And who's to say "he" wrote that message on his will, maybe it was his partner or someone wanting attention. The best part of this situation is, he did not take anyone else's life.

To me, what's even more depressing than this story is the fact that some people consider it "hilarious".
