Alright i though about it....I don't feel bad for anyone who commits suicide no matter what anyone says it was his own choice. Better him killing himself then him killing someone else or being a drugie and mooching off society.
What about the family though? They are suffering- he may have made the choice, but his family did not.

I lost a sister to suicide. So I know how most of this family may be feeling. I wanted to let it be known that I was never poking fun at the man who passed. I was referring to the poor reporting done on this story. My prayers are with him and his family.

You don't have to feel bad for the dead... but how about how the living feel. The mind numbing pain and chest crushing anxiety that his wife feels being left with all the pieces to pick up. If you can't say something positive don't say anything at all.

Most of you people are disgusting. You all make me sick. I am the family of the deceased and this is not something that deserves to be poked fun off. How would you all feel if this was someone you loved who broke your heart and we were all making fun of them. You all should just try to step on someone elses shoes before you decide to write some stupid lame comment about someone who is deceased. You all suck.!!!!!!!!

This is a terrible tragedy and the initial posts are a reflection of how cynical we have become. Regardless of how the paper reported the incident, a life was lost and passing judgement to feel better about yourself is something best left unsaid in a public forum. Poking fun is not appropriate. Let the family pick up the pieces and heal, you dweebs.
