Please if you want to kill yourself do it by yourself and where you dont leave a mess for others to clean up.

This happened right near where i live.
One of the sisters was admitted and the other went on to stab some bloke, and then jumped off a bridge that i cross every day. She didn`t die though. Creepy.
They`ve lived in ireland for god knows how long, and one is married with 2 kids.
One of my work mates had to interview them for some reason or another.
Creepy.

I don`t think they`re suicidal.. they`re stupid.

They were trying to get away from police right?

Right, a few points on my take of this whole thing.
Firstly, the police didn`t just take her down because of the injuries she`d already sustained.
I can`t believe so many people have so much against British police as well!

Secondly, there`s no real evidence that they were suicidal. I mean, yeah, it`s a silly thing to do, running out in front of HGVs, but it is more likely that they were on some sort of substance. But what do I know...

And lastly, I`m suprised noone has brought this up yet...
"Help! Help! Call the police!"
"We are the police!"
lol

That`s so selfish. :/
If you`re going to go kill yourself, do it where you WON`T endanger other people. That could`ve caused a lot of car accidents.

"haha stupid british police LOL, they would have been tazered in the US"
Because of course the best way of solving this would have been to taze them... no, that`s just retarded.

On topic: Good job on the police officers who saved their lives. One of the few things left we have to be proud of here is our police force :-)

Oh, and 850th post! yay me.

Ffff, already seen.

"We`ve frozen the pictures here because of their shocking nature." They were knocked down by cars. :| There wasn`t much shocking about it, to be honest. Some people hang themselves and slice others open, and we`ve probably already seen that.

yeah, because wanting to just kill yourself is EXACTLY the same as WANTING to take other with you..

and dragonshadoz i completly agree with you, it isnt selfish to want to take your own life, its sad, very very sad...
but none of us here could have ever been in that state of mind so who are we to judge? i think its disgusting what most of you have said here, you find this as a joke, you think suicide is funny?

.... why? id like someone to answer with a mature answer please...

And why is everyone assuming that they were planning to kill themselves, for all we know they could have JUST been raped and got away and happened to be near a moterway, and.. went for it..
these things arnt always planned people!
and they could both be mentally ill....this isnt funny :`( i dont know why you guys think it is.. its horrible, if something like this happened to a member of your family would it be funny then?

"what a tragic life they must have.... a lot worse than dying malnutrioned kids in africa or kids working in sweat shops in asia... i hate europe."

dont be so ignorent, anything could have happened to them! you dont know, do you??
...of course kids working in asia and dying in africa are horrible things, but just because these girls are from europe it DOES NOT mean they dont have a reason for wanting to commit suicide.

They showed them getting hit on the show when it aired last night. But the whole thing was so bizarre, they must have been on some sort of drug and got chucked off their coach for being disruptive and psycho.
Apparently they were quite normal a little while later and weren`t aggressive anymore. Mantolwen - did you see the programme last night, I don`t feel sorry for these mental bitches one bit. They weren`t suicidal they were off their heads on drugs.

cause of all the ways they could`ve killed themselves peacefully...pills...cutting...asphysxia from carbon dioxide.....hell even hanging....they had to go with the "lets jump in traffic and hope we die and not end up being crippled or laying in the road writhing in pain like roadkill"

Maybe it is seen as selfish, but I can`t bring myself to see it as such. Maybe I`m wrong. Maybe it`s just my view. I don`t know.
I just think it`s just as selfish when all people can ask is, "Why did they do this to me?"

But I`m ranting... I`ll just go to bed, I`m extremely tired.

Dragon, admittedly, it`s selfish behavior. You have to admit that.

But no, they weren`t (obviously) in a rational state of mind. They should`ve gotten some required counseling or a psych evaluation, some kind of help.

A day of prison isn`t going to do them sh*t.

Did they just say she got a DAY in prison? Not only were they not tasered, which they would have been pretty quickly in the US, but they barely had to face any repercussions for endangering the lives of other drivers, damaging cars, and generally scaring the sh*t out of the people who hit them.

And I don`t give a damn what mental illness they had, you don`t try to kill yourself and endanger the lives of others in the process. That`s even more selfish than taking your own life in the first place.

Justice in Europe is such a joke.

All the comments of people calling them stupid and such is reminding me of the journal I wrote yesterday about suicide.

Here it is, if you`re interested: Suicide

Why do people seem to have this idea that suicidal people are out to hurt others? They`re not.

This clip was extremely sad.

Woman runs out into a street of speeding cars, hangs herself, slits her wrists.. I call that a cry for help.

Two women agree to run across lanes of traffic..

I call that thinning the herd.

Yes, but I do think insulting them and calling them names is just... immature.

I mean, obviously these women were endangering the lives of others and are guilty for that. That`s not under question.

This just brought up the (slightly sensitive) topic in me about so many people thinking that mental illness is completely under the control of the will of the individual.

Suicidal tendencies however is different from say, schizophrenia. I`m talking more schizophrenia.

Yeah Gator, I hate people with mental illness too. Those f*cking bastards. I know, lets call them names! How about nutjobs, or loonies, or crazies?

Just like we all like to call people with cancer baldies.

If you can`t demean a woman with cancer, then how can you when the illness is in her mind instead of her body?

(Assuming they have a mental condition.)

man i hate people like this....if you want to go kill youself, go find a bloody bathroom and take a knife...dont endanger other lives just because you want to kill youself...

If they arent smart enough to know just how valuable it is to have a life...then too bad for them...don`t take others down with you

now "blah blah blah, something terrible must have happened to them blah blah".....ok so...many people go through poo without trying to kill themselves or other people....they should have been smart enough to go get help...or their relatives should have een smart enough to MAKE them go het help if something indeed happened to make them suicidal...


I cant belive they didnt go to jail...(no 1 day doesnt count)....I would have locked em up for ATLEAST 1-2 years for endangering other poeple lives...like someone else said....they could have caused a HUGE accident.

were they really suicidal? because i think if they REALLY wanted to die they`d find a more effective way of doing so that didn`t involve as many variables (like shooting themselves in the head, downing poison, ODing on pills).
