Wow----and none of you have ever done anything wrong? I am not saying this was necessarily an upstanding citizen-but none of us knows the full story. Suicide is tragic-no matter who it is.

Its a sorry fact that this is the only post that showed any concern for their fellow man. I'll just bet that the first 8 people have a mother that is really really proud of them.

I cant believe that people have the nerve to post some of the cruel comments that they have put on here about someones loved one. You people have no idea what exactly happened because none of you were there. How dare you post comments of that nature when you probably need to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself what type of person are you to post such a thing. Shame on the people who have joked and made light of such a terrible thing when there are family members and close friend dealing with such a tragic thing. Hvae some decency and compassion people... No wonder the world is the way it is. Shaking my head...

Someone already pointed out the moronic mistype....
So You really think that this cop writing the guy a ticket cost more, than the it having to be #1 investigated on the scene (which if I know CPD they went all out, taped it off for 7 hours and all poked around in the truck),#2 the hours they will spend trying to figure out why,#3 cleaning it up. Yeah that will be less than a 65 dollar ticket......
Regardless of who it was, its sad that he felt this was his only option.
