A man jumps to his death and people... Laugh?

Pages: « 1 2 » Thread Closed


Here is the article.

I was rather saddened when I saw this. A man in San Francisco jumped out of his window to his death about 5 days ago, right in front of a large crowd. However, most of this crowd was not trying to stop him from jumping- Many of the people actually encouraged the man to jump, and some people even laughed after he did. Many people also tweeted or sent text messages about this as it happened, some saying how horrible it was, some saying that he should jump. However, what really is sad about this is that very few people actually tried to stop the man.



Does anyone else feel rather saddened by this?

Wow, this is really awful.

I live in San Francisco. I'm surprised I didn't hear about this.

Either way... encouraging death is the worst thing you can do. |-O

Quite simply, this is human nature. We are enthralled by any spectacle, no matter what it is. I'm not surprised he was egged on to do it.
This is awful, it is astounding that people can sincerely find amusement from this. This is similar to the accident in the Olympics, everyone laughed, but me.
That's just stupid. You don't encourage someone to kill themselves. You just don't.
In the rougly quoted words of Gantz, when we see someone who's about to die we don't think of protecting them or trying to save them. The first thing that passes through our mind is "Wow ... I get to see someone DIE today". Like CP said, it's human nature. We're amazed by any form of entertainment, even if it involves someone dieing and you not doing anything about it.

Heartless, idiotic people. Of course, that doesn't apply to everyone, but most people couldn't care less that someone was about to die right infront of their eyes.

These types of things make me sick.

Now THAT'S not fair. I should be allowed to laugh at whatever the fuck I want to, be it racism, death, or jokes.

Wow that definitely is horrible. The fact that people encouraged him to jump and they laughed....
Whichever people laughed and encourage the guy to jump...

...I would have beaten them to death.
To death!

Seriously. People LAUGHED at suicide...It angers me thinking about it.

Sad. We have truly become a fallen empire.

Like An00bis said, people are free to laugh at whatever they want. You may not like the fact, but you can't change what people do.
I've just about lost all faith in humanity. This is just sick. Human nature or not, life is a blessing, not some joke that you fucking laugh at and encourage someone to end. Fucking scumbags, how dare they.

Eh, not the first time this stuff happens. It actually happened since... whenever. Look at executions back in the past.
Don't get me wrong, though, I don't encourage it - not at all, actually -, but like a couple of people here said, it's what people do. Entertainment = fun, to them. No matter what kind of entertainment it is.
Comparable with how people like killing people / entities in FPSes and whatnot, or how some people like watching gore movies.
Nothing wrong with that - I'm one of those people -, but when it turns over to real life... eh.

I would not be among them, that's for sure.

Wait... what? People actually laughed at someone jumping to their own death? Why? I'm being rhetorical, I realise people have given correct reasonings. I can't believe that people would sink this low as to actually watch, encourage, and laugh at a man's suicide. This is horrifying and disrespectful at the same time. Unbelievable...

Yes. How did the man's friends and relatives feel when they saw the guy laugh.

Someone should lock them up and throw away the key.

Wow...this is something you dont see everyday.

Funniest thing I have ever seen on the IRC:

*** Adam is now known as Theythoughtmydickwasahotdog
01:28 Pikachu32 Where's a torrent of water when you need one....
01:28 AngrySun <fgt>
01:28 Narutojon1 wtf adam
01:28 Theythoughtmydickwasahotdog Th girls did
01:28 AngrySun </fgt>
01:28 *** Theythoughtmydickwasahotdog is now known as Adam.

That's America for you. I can't believe people would laugh at death. That's just creepy. And sad. I really feel bad for the guy who jumped and his family. If I saw someone commit suicide, I would get away from that place.
60% of the time, works every time.



Mm-hmm. I couldn't stand to see someone die like that.
