This Economy Crisis Is No Joke:

Headline from


"Los Angeles Man Kills his wife, 5 children, then himself:

Los Angeles Police Deputy Chief Kenneth Garner said that the tragic killing in a suburb of Los Angeles occurred after the man cracked under the pressure of the credit crunch: "He was despondent, clearly, over his job situation... This was a financial and job-related issue that led to the slayings."

The father was identified as 40-year-old Ervin Lupoe. He and his wife both worked as medical technicians at the Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Centre."


This shit is straight tragic man. Fuck this downward spiral the country is facing. California is gettin hit hard. California's unemployment rate is at 9.3% almost double what it was this time last year. That gives California the 3rd worst unemployment rate, only behind Michigan and Rhode Island which are at 10.3% and 10% respecfully.

Scary stuff.



Apparently Ervin Lupoe faxed over a letter to local authorities informing them of his plan to wax his wife, children and himself. He blames Kaiser Permanente Medical Center for the loss of he and his wife's jobs. In the letter, he explains in detail that he and his wife discussed killing themselves, and decided they didnt want their kids growing up in someone elses hands. The credit crunch became overwhelming and homie decided to call it quits rather than live another stressful day. DAMN HOMIE!
