suicide - April 12, 2007, 07:12 AM

http://www.timescommunity.com/site/t...d=507589&rfi=6

Anyone else hear/see of this? I was unlucky enough to drive by at the absolutely wrong time and have been sick to my stomach since. I will probably never forget the way it looked.

Oh. Haunting.

Reminds of the one time, late at night, when we drove up to a minivan accident with casualties. There were maybe 3 cars in front of us. It had just happened and authorities were just arriving on the scene. We saw WAY too much. It was absolutely heartbreaking.
I will never take exit 156 off southbound I-95 too fast. Ever. That night still haunts me.

Heard the call go out on the scanner. Glad no cars got struck, could have killed someone with his selfishness... if you're going to do it, at least be mindful of those uninvolved with your woes.

I was Psych Major in college, the professors always warned that there is a "fine line between suicide and homicide" meaning that once someone has it their head to take their own life...they probably won't value yours that much, so you will need to be extremely cautious if you attempt to interfere with their actions.

(Just my 2 cent nugget of wisdom.)

on another note..
I remember back several years ago when a guy held up beltway traffic for hours threatening to jump off the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. I was hoping someone would just SHOOT him and get it over with. But the guy eventually backed down and was charged with some petty thing... CHICKENSHIT!

Suicide by definition is selfish, and I can't imagine someone willing to commit it values strangers very highly. It is about them, and their pain.

Talking about terrible things you've seen on the road that made you sick... *graphic warning*

Back in the small Mississippi town I went to college in - we had a single interstate running through the middle of town. At about 7 am, a near blind, drunken homeless man ran out into the interstate and was hit by a semi at full speed. I was the 3rd car behind the semi. I'm not sure it was a suicide or not - the guy didn't even look at traffic, he was looking across the interstate the whole time. When the truck hit him, it was shocking - but it didn't look real. It was like a crash test dummy was just shredded... there wasn't this explosion of blood really. Myself and several others all stopped, and thats when it really hit you. There was no major peice of this man left ... just a foot and ankle here... a finger there... and a lot of completely indistinguishable fleshy debris.

It seemed like just a bunch of movie props - it was hard to make the connection that these are the remains of a man I saw walking only 10 seconds earlier. I am so glad I'm not one of the authorities that had to clean that up. There were little pieces everywhere... probably the two that grossed me out the most were a couple teeth and a part of the top of the skull, complete with hair.

Oh, its almost dinner time isn't it? Oops.

I heard about this right after it happened from a friend of mine. Kinda weird. Too close to home for comfort.
Brad, I think you win.
There was a shooting at the Centreville Multiplex about 11 years ago (I still had my learner's permit). Somebody got up in the middle of a movie about racism and yelled "white power," or something and got shot.
We drove by right as the helicopter was landing. There was a covered body on the sidewalk and a stream of blood down the sidewalk along the curb. It's amazing how much blood is in the human body. There's my gorey story.

That's true, if the heart is still beating its a mess. Not a whole lot of blood from the homeless guy in my story. Maybe that's why none of it looked real.

I have always considered suicide the cowards way out

as far as seeing that mess, that is horrible, but think about 9/11 or our brothers and sisters dealing with that on a day to day basis over seas, kinda makes you appreciate life a little more

it does for me anyway
