I hope future prevention is given a lot of consideration by the Court. Make the penalty such that no person would ever want ot be convicted of this heinous crime.

Sad that folks chose to end it, but dude did not pull the trigger or push them off the bridge. It was their choice to go out like this and he may be a scumbag for encouraging it, but how is this a crime?

I agree and would add one thought: when this sicko is done getting off on this activity, the thrill no longer there, then what sort of activity would he choose next? That's what the judge should consider as well.

Will we read about this person again some day? Hope not.

here is my expertise and step by step instructions......take a loaded large caliber handgun, point the barrell next to your temple and pull the trigger.....or wait......go down to whatever hwy overpass you can walk your loser arse to and jump in front of a bus.
oh wait, skip all that...don't do it.....don't want to be charged with a crime.

I get its a sad story and they do have loved ones, but give me a break....these poor tortured souls did this on their own.

Many years ago I spent two hours talking to a depressed young woman morning the death of her mother who was poised to jump off a bridge into the Mississippi. I will grant you that she might have decided not to jump, but I got official credit for an assist. I think it only fair that this looser also get credit where it is due. It is one thing to walk away as someone is in this situation. Quite another to take an active role, good or bad. Now lets see if our Appeals Court is capable of the same reasoning.

Guess a person better watch what they say from here on out. I have had people whine to me about killing themselves. I have often offered advise to make them feel better and the issue past. There are those few that every fricken time you see them they are filthy, sad, always whining, ALWAYS. Eventually one gets tired of that type of attention seeking crap. One time I told that particular person, FINE, go ahead, do it. Until he was faced with that he was constantly dragging everyone around him down. Since finally letting out the go ahead, I have heard nothing about suicide from this person. How would I have felt if he would have done it? Well after literally years of hearing it, well ya kinds stop caring what happens. If someone kills themselves because someone says go ahead and do it, well, sorry, kinda conflicts with the freedom of speech. How can one be prosecuted for words? Someone kills themselves, not like someone put the ol' needle in the arm for them. Words hurt, they always have. Children commit suicide because of words every day, who is convicting those bullies that NEVER seem to learn the lesson their whole life? Who was this so called killer when he was in school?

Kind of distorts the next headline: Man convicted of killing ex-girlfriend from Eagan

In the light of this article my head wanted to see it like this.
Man convicted of killing ex-girlfriend, from Eagan

You know like he did it LONG DISTANCE, obviously he did not but a few will see exactly what I mean, most will not have a clue.

Bout the story, I say CUT HIM LOOSE! He didn't kill anybody. The real killers KILLED THEMSELVES. This really is not too far from someone begging the girlfriend to try sky diving, after 10 no ways he finally convinces her, the first jump-shoot don't open, she dies. Did HE kill her? well did he? Should he go to jail? Should he? Really? & why or why not...

Only thing this guy is really guilty of is taking credit for something that was going to happen one day anyway.
