One of my aunts neighbors called her earlier to chat & vent about his anger toward his son, his son has caused him major issues with bills & getting him evicted from his home. And he kept saying he wanted to kill his son.
My aunt thought he was just venting & not actually serious. So she brushed him off.
30 minutes later cops are flying by with the sirens blasting.
The guy shot his son & then shot him self.
Now my aunt feels like if she would of tried to calm him down instead of rushing him off the phone that he may have not done it.

But what could she have said? I feel so bad for her, she's beating herself up about it.

Honestly, probably nothing. She didn't think he was serious, most people wouldn't. This is not her fault and she shouldn't blame herself for it

She did what most people would do. And if he was that upset; nothing she could have done would have likely made a difference. That is so sad. But it is not her fault; and she shouldn't blame herself. Thats really sad :(

I know this is bad but anytime I hear a story about someone committing a crime and then killing them self, I think "well at least taxpayers money won't be wasted on providing 3 hots and a cot for the criminal

Your poor aunt. It's not her fault but if it was me and he seemed unstable, I would have called the police.

How tragic.
