I don't think people should pass judgement on the guy, let his family grieve and leave it alone, it is not affecting your life. My prayers are with the family,

No one is passing judgement on the guy, it is a VERY VERY sad situation. Just don't understand why he didn't go to a secluded area.. instead of in the middle of a parking lot..there were kids around!!!!

Yes... kids were in the area when the gun shot went off and commented on facebook about it, kids shouldn't be subject to that!!!!! Definitively should have not been in a public area!!! Very selfish to expose it to kids!!

I agree, but if someone is that out of their mind and desperate to take their own life. they're probably not even thinking of their own children, let alone others. What a horrible tragedy.

When someone is in that state of mind their not thinking of who's nearby, maybe people should have more compassion for people and this world would be a better place. My husband, daughter and I are very close friends with him his wife and children and we are grieving along with his family. So tonight keep his wife and children in your prayers because they need them.

people definitely aren't thinking about their surroundings when the create their own demise. It's so sad & I hate to think of someone having such an intense heartache that they commit this kind of act. God rest his soul :(

Too bad you weren't able to walk in his shoes for just one day. You have no earthly idea how tormented he must have been. Stop judging him.

I'm sorry if I gave the wrong impression. What I meant is that the torment you referred to surpasses all reason and clear thinking. Believe me, I have nothing but compassion for the man, and I'm certainly not judging him.

It is a very sad day for his wife, children, mother, brother and sister, grandmother & all those who knew him. Please don't judge a person because they were in such a dark place feeling as if that the only way to make things easier is to take one's life. That in itself is not an easy decision.We should never judge others because we don't know all the details. My prayers go out to his family so that they can find some type of understanding through this tragedy. God Bless his Soul.

You are right, but the publicity of this event causes speculation. It is human nature. Honestly, as hard as these times are, the truth is the best answer. There seem to be alot of friends ect. on here.

As hard as it might seem, someone telling the facts will stop the speculation. People do not stop, and it will get worse. But when the truth is known, the cowards vanish.

What in the world does cowards have anything to do with honest decent people wanting to know what in the world was so bad he took his life and in public to boot. They aren't looking for dirt they are looking for answers. When someone takes their life in public people want to know way. What is wrong with that?
