    Why do we need to judge suicide as an act? It's perceived differently in different cultures. Some cultures consider suicide heroic and an honorable act in some situations. Some people think they are ridding their friends and family of a burden. It difficult to judge suicidal people, especially if they didn't leave a letter or give a reason. The only that is certain is this woman took her life in a very violent way and she must have been very mentally disturbed.

    I think people exhaust theirselves over suicide becaues they're trying - way too hard - to understand it.

    Why does suicide HAVE to make sense or be worked into a 'reasonable mind-set' view?

    Why can't suicide be senseless and purposeless? Why can't it just be thoughtless?

    Sometimes there is absolutely no conjugated and formed thought about it. It just seems like a good idea. Wouldn't surprise me if she didn't sit there stewing over it at all or was in an emotional stew of voided hate or something - instead - maybe she just did it quite spontaneously.

    And now she's left a couple of kids who are going to be mentally disturbed. It's like a domino effect. She's probably destroyed several lives by what she did. If she's truly mentally disturbed, I feel sorry for her, but where was her family? Did this truly go unnoticed by everyone?

    Not to mention the trauma she inflicted on the people who witnessed her jump into 55 MPH traffic. I feel really sorry for the person(s) whose autos struck and killed her through no fault of their own.

    Its like people who commit suicide by cop. I have met a few LEO's pushed into that situation and its hard on them

    I have often called one of my siblings bat-**** crazy because she is. Doesn't mean that I don't understand mental illness. Trust me, I do. Ya, some people are "nutcases," and sorry if that offends any delicate sensibilities exquisitely fine-tuned on the political correctness dial.

    There are many reasons for suicide. One is being really drunk. Another is to punish others. Sometimes suicide is a supremely selfish and narcissistic act, and I don't see anything wrong with saying so.
