LOS ANGELES – A man who fatally shot his wife, five young children and himself Tuesday had earlier faxed a note to a TV station claiming the couple had just been fired from their hospital jobs and together planned the killings as a final escape for the whole family.
"Why leave the children to a stranger?" Ervin Lupoe wrote, according to KABC-TV.
The station called police after receiving the fax, and a police dispatch center also received a call from a man who stated, "'I just returned home and my whole family's been shot."

I know if I lost my job the first (and most reasonable) thing to come to my mind would be murdering my family.
Some people should have never been born.
Southern California or even Central California have always been terrible places full of insane people and it's a horrible shame that the people in Northern California and Eastern California have to live under the nonsensical legislative and political tyranny of those two regions.
Personally, I cant wait for the "big one" to send CA floating away. I've a bottle of champagne set aside for the occasion.

So, without at least a middle class standing in America, life is not worth living? Are we such consumers that life is only valuable insomuch as we have cable, internet, vacations or the multitudinous other perks that bring enjoyment?

i don't have too much problem with suicides - but murdering your own kids?
i've noticed parents who kill their children then themselves don't get as roundly condemned as other murderers. in these situations we focus a lot on the causes and the tragedy of it all and the fact that brutal murders just took place gets pushed aside.

Let's see a couple with no future decide they cannot provide a descent life for their kids so they abort (kill) them, seems reasonalble to me, about 3500 couples a day make that decision. Oh wait! these kids were already born and had names and left dead bodies to be cleaned up that couldn't be covered with a small cloth, you know, like at the abortion center. No difference in my opinion, kill your own offspring it's the new/old thing to do!
Suicide is very rare in 2/3 rds of the rest of the world where many people walk 2-10 miles every day to get clean water, and sometimes eat grass, they always have spirit and fight on, hope still burns.
