Photo of Death Fall on Social Network Site moments after Fall

Another reason why some of these social network site need some sort of moderation team to overlook them. Photos of a young man who appears to have committed suicide appeared on a social network site only moments after he jumped to his death in the Bullring Centre.

What a way for parents, wife, children, or brothers and sisters or even friends to find out about the death of a loved one. Seeing a photo of his dead twisted body posted on the internet.

Suicide is not a fall.
In public places it isn't private.
What's the problem? Are we supposed to just ignore these selfish ******* who, at the very least, spoil everyone else's day? Screw 'em.

A bit hard on people who surely are not of sound mind ?

A persons state of mind hardly qualifies them for sympathy when said person falls on you from a great height or lands in a dull thud in front of young children, or in fact anyone. The nightmares that ensue would be unlikely to induce apathy.
Some friends of mine were just at the bottom of the steps onto a platform of Milton Keynes train station last year, after a nice day out at Bletchley Park, when they were met with a hail of gravel and blood from a platform jumper. Guess where my sympathies lie.

Having said that, I suppose it isn't right for eye witness images to be broadcast to unsuspecting viewers.
For much the same reaons as I have no time for public suicides.

My post Volty was not about the chap who jumped, but about the moron who posted the photos to the social networking site. My sympathy as I pointed out was directed toward the real victims of this tragedy the jumpers family.

Yes Phil, I realised that after I'd had a rant about the wrong thing.

But volty is right. I used to know (haven't seen him for over 10 years now)someone who had been a train driver . He was happily driving towards Reading one day when someone jumped in front of the train. He had counselling and whatever, but was not ever able to go back to his old job, and always seemed morose when i knew him

Suicide is a cowards way out, sometimes I think its to punish those they leave behind, sometimes its just simply because they can't cope with life. Sometimes its to draw some attention to themselves.
I think that suicides should maybe not be reported maybe that would stop some of them.


I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left
