Kansas better get their shit together, When someone like this guy ends his life its because he found out the truth about Kansas Government. Rest in Peace Eric. I wish you wouldnt have taken your life for those morons, we have 50 some states, and while they are all corrupt in one form or another, some are better than others, so sad that politics drive people to end their life, but its what its coming too!! Suicide rates in this country will soon surpass homicide rates.
