A couple of years ago, a famous (and very rich) doctor in the town I live in committed a horrible crime. He was married with 2 children and his wife was well known in the community and had a good reputation, while he was known to be arrogant and disrespectful to people around him. He was also abusive to his wife, and we heard that he cheated on her.
So, the wife could not take it anymore. She could not take the constant physical and psychological abuse, and decided to leave him. She filed for divorce, and as you know in USA, this means she would take half of what he owns, including the house, and she would also take the children (considering the abuse). The doctor could not accept that he had to leave. One Saturday morning, he tried talking her out of the divorce. He tried dialogue, but she would not change her mind, she wanted him out, so he went crazy and started beating her up. He beat her so violently that he caused injuries to her internal organs, including her heart, that were enough to kill her. Yet that was not enough for him, so he choked her and broke her neck, killing her a second time. The murderer was not satisfied yet, so he shot her in the head, killing her a third time.
When he was done, he realized what he did, and that he was now in trouble. He called his secretary and asked her to come to his house. He told her that he killed his wife, but he cannot let the police take him. He cannot go to prison!! He was going to kill himself too. She tried to convince him, but he showed her where the important documents were in the house, and pushed her out. She called the police, but by the time they arrived, he had already commited suicide. He lay dead next to his wife.
Sorry for the long story. It is 100% real. I would provide you wih a link but I don’t want to reveal my location. Anyway, the reason I remembered and wrote this story was the striking resemblance between the details of the story and what’s going on in Syria. The people want to divorce Assad, but he has gone crazy. He tried dialogue, and when it failed he became violent. I hope he does not succeed in killing our beloved Syria, but I sure hope he commits suicide in the end.
