    Why?
    For a start, you think there would be at least one person to do the right thing and call the police to get it sorted.
    Its quite sad. nowadays, this is really the only type of news story.
    so sad...

    Ok I can see how people would get pissed at the people saying "Do it" and the ones who didn`t call. The problem is that he said he was going to kill himself on a forum. Of course there are going to be a$$holes who say do it. Every forum has them. It is sad and I feel for the parents.

    It`s like that famous case of Kitty Genovese, the woman who got murdered in the street, and although the crime was witnessed by at least 10 people, no one called the police until after she had been stabbed repeatedly and raped, which took about an hour. It`s called bystander effect. Most people (except obviously the ones saying "do it") just think that if it`s really serious, someone else will call for help.

    I think it`s a reflection from her hat.

    This is incredibly sad though. I wish that someone would have done something to help. I would have called 911 because if he WAS joking that`s not something to joke about and he would have been given a lecture by authorities about it. and it would have been better safe than sorry.

    Everyone has a right to kill themselves, or request to have themselves killed in the case of euthanasia. At least, that`s how I see it.

    "why do americans hate u`s so much"

    because its a very young country, many years ago in order to try to make the country seem more independant of the countries that formed it the people writing websters dictionary, particularly noah webster decided to alter a whole bunch of english words and spellings in order to create "american english" the irony being that the changes arent even enough to classify american english as a dialect of english, and so the entire language feels like normal english spelt incorrectly,

    engilsh if you will :P

    "Lets break it up. Neigh.... bor

    We could also spell it nayber. But we don`t. I still can`t understand why America doesn`t spell colour with a `u` etc. If it was for the reason primetimekin specifies, why isn`t elephant spelt elefant, light spelt lyte, science spelt sy-

    No. This has almost nothing to do with someone committing suicide over the internet. So back on topic:
    No-one called 911 because they probably had no idea where he was. They couldn`t have saved him (if those who were watching him even wanted to) because they couldn`t provide any details on where he was, unless he posted details on his whereabouts before he died. In which case I have lost hope in humanity.

    I tried committing suicide when I was 15 because I was depressed and had no access to medication etc. My friend saved me by convincing me to step off the window sill. I still regret climbing on and for all you who say `if they want to die its their right` let me tell you that EVERY suicide case is different with differing reasons and causes.

    Also, everyone is different. Unless the person has a DNR there`s no way to tell if they`re sanely doing this.

    By the way, if there isn`t a need to add `u` because it sounds perfectly fine, then why do Americans spell George with the first `e` and Steve that way instead of `Steev`?

    Wrong gorgack, on the forums he posted his suicide later traced his ip address... then using that they found out his phone number, his real address and then they used that to find out which police station to call. The thing AP says justin.tv called the police is bullpoo.

    No one`s death has `no` impact on people`s lives. The 6 degrees of separation phenomenon exists. If the guy who offs himself on TV because he was depressed turns out to be the only doctor in the world who can treat your daughter dying of a terminal disease, you`d be singing a different tune.

    People kill themselves because they aren`t happy with their life, but they never once think about how much their family will mourn.

    Every time I wanted to kill myself, I realized I was selfish.

    Selfishness is suicide, the easiest way out of a problem.

    fillemort, many suicidal people `don`t` think. They`re not in a mental position to make decisions that are as sane as what some people here are saying.

    And some suicidal cases actually DO think of their loved ones and the impact it will have and do it anyway. Depression is a horrible ailment and no one has the right to judge someone suffering from that. You have no idea what could be causing it.

    ---

    Do you have the guts to admit defeat, one of man`s greatest challenges? Because, in all honesty, that`s what suicide is. To give in and admit that you`ve failed and you`re weak (especially for a man) is a challenge.

    Are you man enough to even be civil on a forum? Nope.

    Not much a 911 operator could`ve done. For the same reason Skype, or Vonage can`t make outgoing 911 calls.

    By the time someone could have convinced the 911 operator that someone is committing suicide live on webcam, they would have to figure out who the IP belongs to. Wait, what if he`s using a proxy.

    Either way, they would`ve been dead before anyone could even get there.

    xParanoia, you are a drating moron and your parents failed to raise a mature, healthy individual.

    Clearly you are not an adult, having to come on here and try to seem macho with someone who killed himself to impress people. I`d say "what a dick" but you seem to be one of those bitches who concerns herself with everyone else because she`s so self conscious. Parents must be proud.

    That being said- bi-polar is an actual physical thing. Suicide happens when people run out of methods of coping. It`s drattards like you that egg people on. You have no idea what it`s like to be stigmatized or treated like poo because of something like that. Even with meds and trying hard every day, others just see the "crazy" person seeking attention, not someone who could use human compassion.

    We wonder why our kids are so drated up and other cultures can`t stand us. We promote being "better" than others by putting down others who really need help.

    This reminds me of a story where a suicidal teen was gonna jump to his death and there were non-nice individuals on the ground yelling "just get it over with already!" and "I have things to do come on!!" and stuff. So sad.

    My friend just posted a Myspace bulletin:
    "If I died would anyone care?"

    Should I tell him the truth, that no, no one would care? The truth sets you free?

    No one`s death has `no` impact on people`s lives. The 6 degrees of separation phenomenon exists. If the guy who offs himself on TV because he was depressed turns out to be the only doctor in the world who can treat your daughter dying of a terminal disease, you`d be singing a different tune.

    ------------------
    Hey buddy, you know what `terminal` means? It means incurable, and `treatment` doesn`t always mean cure, but it means they can live longer, but in pain. If you are gonna be all morally righteous, just don`t go there.

    People who commit suicide are douche bags.

    If they commit suicide, chances are we didn`t need them anyway.

    Under most circumstances, a person considering suicide doesn`t show it outwardly and avoids getting into situations where someone will try to talk them out of it. If they go around telling people, its because they want to be stopped.

    And in response to a few of the below comments... Terminal does NOT mean specifically incurable, A terminal disease is one that only gets worse with time, progressing through stages until the body finally dies. There have been cures found for past terminal illnesses... They still consider them terminal because without proper treatment the person will slowly wither away. If YOU`RE gonna act all self-righteous, at least make sure you not sounded like an idiot.

    And people who commit suicide aren`t "douchbags" just because they decided to take their own life. It seems its the ignorant and bully-ish people (like you) that DRIVE people to such things by harassing and abusing them. Maybe he should have killed you instead. I knew someone who killed themselves because he was bullied in school and beat up at home. Screw you for bashing on people who you obviously know nothing about, you drattards.

    1. No-one ever commits suicide because they WANT to, its a last resort call for attention. EVERYONE who kills themselves has been screaming for help in a hundred ways for ages, if friends, family and people in general would just learn the warning signs.
    2. I don`t think I`d have called 911, cause on the web its still 99% likely you`re being pranked. Sad but true.
    3. Lot of people on here need to grow up. Someone was so sad they died. YOU will be there sometime. Whether you get through it or not depends on whether YOUR friends recognise the signs and help you when it happens.

    On a lighter note, under English law in the Olde Days, the penalty for attempted suicide (a crime against God) was death by hanging. What genius thought that one through??

    actually terminal does in fact mean a disease that cannot be cured and will inevitably lead to the death of the patient - serious trauma is just as terminal as cancer. Yes, they have found cures for past terminal illnesses; however, that does not change the fact that if you have a terminal illness, it means that current medicine is not able to treat you and you will die, quickly or slowly as the case may be.

    It`s sad that one more person is gone from this world from a situation that is highly avoidable, but there`s no point in harping over it.

    THe family however is being absolutely ridiculous in blaming everyone else for this situation. As many others have said before, in the internet many things are probably fake. And really, families should be more aware of the signs. He can`t sue anyone.

    See, people like turtle are what we like to call "internet tough guys", The fact is, that forum and a bunch of people on here, and truth is most the people on the internet get all cawky and say and do stupid crap because they think they are anonymous. If the internet required your real name, address and phone number to be posted in every forum, internet tough guys wouldn`t be quite the douchebags they try to be. You know what i can`t wait for? The news story where a real 6`6" guy finds the address of an "internet tough guy" and splatter his brain matter all over the front lawn with a crow bar... and when they show just how easy it is to get peoples address and names off of websites like this, then things might change a little... until then, expect could heartless "tough guys" spouting off at the lip from the comfort of their easy chair...

    "for all you who say `if they want to die its their right` let me tell you that EVERY suicide case is different with differing reasons and causes."

    How does each individual case have any bearing on any person still having the right to take their own life if they so pleased? It may not be a good reason, whatever that is, but does that diminish their right? I fail to see how.

And only one person rang the website hosting the video... i honestly can`t believe how totally sick, twisted and uncaring it seems that the majority of people are. It makes me sad.

    What the heck happened to my comment about the guy comparing the UK to the USA?

    You cannot compare numbers like that. Compare per 100,00: USA 5.7 murdered by all methods, UK 2.03.

    Now, the numbers here are more accurate, however, you must remember that our cultures are very different. The highest murder rate is in D.C., where all guns are banned. The lowest murder rate is in a town that requires guns to be owned.

    http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/articl...

    So quit trying to compare the UK to the USA. The circumstances are far too different.

    By the way... yes the words are shortened in chat lingo like light might be "lyte" or "lite" and elephant might be "elefant" as long as people understand each other...

    Matt33, the point is not just being able to understand each other, it`s about speaking proper(ish) english (on a side note, it is actually sometimes difficult to make out what is being said when people type lyk dis). It`s mainly negative for the actual poster though because it gives them a bad habit and makes them look simple. But that brings out the self-righteous grammar/spelling nazis (who I dislike more) and it just creates unecessary arguments. If people just used the same language and spelling it would make everything so much easier.

    And the yellow neighbour...I`m fairly sure it was just due to unfortunate lighting.

    Unfortunately it`s too late to stop the battle between the super-moral snobs and the internet tough guys. If everyone were actually as nice as they tried to make themselves out to be the world would be a lot better than it is at the moment. Suicide is selfish? No, posting on a damned internet forum is selfish.

    (Yes, that makes me selfish too.)
