    LEBANON, N.H. (AP) — A patient was shot to death inside an intensive care unit Tuesday by her son, leading to a lockdown at New Hampshire’s largest hospital, authorities said. No one else was injured.

    Authorities said Travis Frank, 49, of Warwick, Rhode Island, was arrested and will be arraigned Wednesday on first-degree murder charges for the shooting shortly before 3 p.m. at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon.

    1. Remember when "lockdown" was just a prison term?

    As disturbed as I am by the rampant violence in this country (gee, I wonder why? Our system is so welcoming and communal!), I’m even more disturbed by how readily we’ve assumed the role of prison inmates.

    2. He saw his inheritance being destroyed by medical bills

    ipso facto. :sarcasm:

      3. I don't think murder would help his inheritance prospects much…

      is that the reason they’re giving in the press?

        4. No, I just had a brain fart

        I should have put a disclaimer or such.

          5. thanks. even if it were the root cause, the action speaks more of someone

          either not giving it a lot of thought, or being pushed to their limit and just losing it

          it’s an ‘i just don’t give a fuck anymore/i can’t stand it’ kind of thing, i’m thinking

            6. Seems like there's a lot of that lately

            ..usually, they end-up killing their whole family, friends, if they have any, then themselves.
