"LOS ANGELES - An unemployed man with an advanced finance degree who was despondent over his own financial problems shot and killed his wife, three children, mother-in-law and then himself in an upscale home in a gated community, police said Monday. The man had a master's of business administration in finance, formerly worked for PricewaterhouseCoopers and Sony Pictures, but had been unemployed for several months, Deputy Chief Michel Moore said."

That's ridiculous to say that the economy is killing Americans. There are SEVERAL things that the family could have done to "survive". If you are living above your means (regardless of the economical situation) you will go into debt. It takes a VERY weak person to KILL his ENTIRE family including himself just because they were in debt. When money gets low you sacrifice to survive. You sell your home, sell your car,GET ANOTHER JOB, cut-back on expenses, get government assistance, file for bankruptcy, etcetera, etcetera (the list can go on and on)..YOU DON'T kill your entire family! The economy didn't kill that family, the HUSBAND and FATHER killed that family. I feel NO pity for somebody who does that.

You sell your home, sell your car,GET ANOTHER JOB, cut-back on expenses, get government assistance, file for bankruptcy
sell your home - for two thirds of what you pay for it, if you're lucky enough to find a buyer who can get credit for a mortgage, and then you're without a home and still on the hook for the rest of your own mortgage
sell your car - again, for less than it's worth, if you can find a buyer
GET ANOTHER JOB - yeah, I'm sure that just didn't occur to the guy who'd been out of work for months.
get government assitance - not likely if you're unable to dump your "assets"
file for bankruptcy - a lot harder to do now than it was, thanks to changes in the law.

Debate it all you want..there ARE steps that a person can take. There is absolutely NO excuse for murdering your family..unless you are completely insane.
Once upon a time people didn't have cars or own houses. They didn't kill their familes just because they had to go without.
