Why cant society realise....

that people are responsible for THEIR OWN actions and stop pointing the finger elsewhere.

It really gets on my t1ts all this scapegoating.

suicide page or not, people know how to top themselves.

Theres always the number 65 bus, or the 12.15 to london train.

Failing that, you've always got those happy happy pills and a bottle of vodka.

All I expect a suicide site does is promote the more "effective" and perhaps "cleaner" solutions.

If someone is intent on killing themselves, a suicide site isnt going to push it further.

Whose sig picture had "Got no friends, Got no love, well we have two friends waiting for you , Smith and Wesson"

LOL

Yer Losty that's quite funny

Back on the point though, it all still boils down to society being unwilling to take responsibility for it's own actions. The lad involved had long been obsessed with self harm and suicide, but nothing was done about it. He tried, and failed to commit suicide once before but nothing was done about it. He eventually found out how to do it "properly" and succeeded.

But society has to blame the site which held the instructions for letting him know how to do it properly, rather than blaming the people who knew his mental state yet allowed him the opportunity to try again. Or the authorities who must have been aware of his previous attempt and his continual self-harm, but had too few resources to offer proper councilling.

The simple fact is, whether he learnt from the internet, or some other means, this kid was obviously serious about ending his own life. He would have found a way to do it one way or the other. Instead of blaming the site where he got his information, it should be looked into why he felt the need to end his life, and why none of the people involved managed to find this out before he succeeded.

Some people in response to this might say he was offered councilling or people did try to talk to him - but it's still no use blaming an internet site, as that was not what made him WANT to kill himself. I'm guessing it was probably pressure of his medical studies.

Oh and the article says he was "treated for depression" after his failed suicide attempt earlier in the year. That generally means he was given some happy pills and sent on his way. Nowhere does it suggest he was properly cared for and that anyone actually cared enough to try and find out WHY he was depressed.

Unfortunately it's typical of todays underresourced medical facilities. They do not have the time to try and find out the cause of peoples unhappiness, just try and stuff some pills down their neck to make em feel better, without looking at the root cause.

As for the blame - it is over the top as usual and things like these sites are easy targets as they dont fight back and respond. Alas this sort of thing is now part of 21 century culture :/

With something like this it's similar to the saying 'you can take a horse to water'

End of the day you can show them how it's done but it's up to them what they do.

No reason to be blaming the internet and games e.t.c.

Stupid.
