This is so wrong obviously who ever wrote this does not have a family or loved ones or they would realize how painful it is to read this and see this were not on a reality show we didnt sign up to be stared at or researched like animals in cages are we as a country that big of vultures that we cant realize that hey maybe these people are going through some hard times enough without blasting there personal information to the media I pray you never have to feel the pain im living through and if you do may the person covering the story give you some respect unlike what has been done to us I would never ever ever wish that on my worst enemy and im not sorry if this offends anyone because if it does you probably have a guilty concious !!!!!!!!!! I love you nick sooooooo much love cj

its funny how many times in the news we read about suicide overdose homicide you never hear pearl who was ninty died of blablabla because who would want an article on something that wasnt juicy n detailed people have no consideration for families of these types of deaths and how strangely people treat you when they do know its nobodys bussiness

And really "a simple story" ?????? How is that simple that simple story is going to haunt us for the rest of our lives and "end of his well whatever" please well ofcourse the artical cant offend my brother that is not the point however it is harmful to a family trying to cope with a loved ones loss and when they go to check his guest books and the title " man shoots himself in vehicle" pops up next to it its very upsetting you and nobody including myself could know the pain he was in nothing "simple" about that im just glad my job does not entail hurting others for a profit and im glad I have enough common sense to know whats wrong.

Reporters have to put their personal feelings aside when reporting the news. This was a reportable event. I feel for his family.

Many years ago, a man killed himself in his vehicle right outside my house. I called the police when I found him. It never made the paper.

Well that's just ignorant. Sometimes people can't take the burden any longer. I don't think the family needs to feel any shame, but I do understand being unhappy that it was printed in the paper.

A very close friend committed suicide about a year ago. The only thing I was angry with him about was that he took his dog out, too. He had been depressed for many years. There wasn't much he could do about that.

This girl is beside herself with grief. You are just adding to it
by making your snide remarks. And the only shame I see here is yours. Suicide is probably the hardest type of death to deal with. These poor people will probably torture themselves for a long time asking themselves what they should have done, or could have done, known or said..... Maybe you think that we are NEVER given more than we can handle, but sometimes it takes years after a tragedy for us to know that. Leave this girl alone and let her grieve for her brother.

You have no right what so ever to say anything about my family my brother or anything for that matter I HAVE NO SHAME!!!!!!!!! I have sadness for him and my family you have no idea what he went through and yeah theres alot of things said about life that are a bunch of crap if your mind is that narrow in this day age I feel sorry for you do you also believe that homosexuals go to he**? if you believe in,the bible than you would know its nobodys but Gods job to judge people and their circumstance it is also written "do not judge or you to will be judged for in the same way you judge others you will be judged and with the messure you use it will be messured to you" so if you are going by the good book your talking out both sides of your mouth practice what you preach and I do blame the paper because my dad specificaly asked it to not be made public due to the fact we have a family member with a heart condition who does need to be reminded of the circumstance by all the people calling when they hear this or google his name .How dare you say those things show some respect ...... Oh and one word for you KARMA

Crystal, pay absolutely NO attention to Skinny. Besides being a cunning linguist and an awesome speller, he's a worthless human being who has absolutely no right to insult you, your family, or the deceased. What he should do, is keep his opinions about this subject to himself, rather than spout continued hatred towards anyone and everyone within a forum. But then again, that's all he has in his pathetic life.

Crystal, it may not seem like it now, but you will get past this. Know that your brother's torment is over. Keep his memory alive.

How dare you judge someone and bring the good book in. like crystal said we may have a lot on our plates but people like you add scum and scraps to that plate leave this family alone and go find something better to do. crystal i apologize for your loss and the scum these people could be. I would tell you to have your family sue or fight what these people wrote and announced about your brother. going against your wishes, that is invasion of privacy. What has this nasty world become.

your pretty stupid if you think that a public loss of life is kept quiet just because the griving family doesn't want the shame of reading about there lost son and brother. Ever hear of freedom of speach and press? I guess not or you would keep your thought to yourself.
It's hard for the familys of suicide victimes and they should never blame the press for something that was done in public. Think of young kids walking by that may have seen him? I am sorry that you have to go through it , really.
You really are an idiot and it shows EVERYTIME you post something. Do the online world, and others, a favor and just go away before kharma takes you away. Retroprocity? Really, what the "F" is that moron?
