Murder/Suicide Attempt

Chanel 5 news in Akron Ohio posted a story about a mother who attempted to jump off a bride with her six year old daughter. The police showed up on the scene and grabbed the woman before she could jump and arrested her for child endangerment. The child is safe now so that makes for a happy ending. I would have done it differently though. If I was the cop I would have jumped out and said “Hold it!” then grabbed the child from the woman and then said “Ok now go ahead and do what you gotta do.”

    And have the child hate you for life.

    Can’t please everyone, though.

    Have the child hate you??? You would have saved him from an attempted murder!

  3. I just don’t understand suicides. Check out, if you simply must, (said tongue-in-cheek), but don’t take anyone else with you!

    A six year old isn’t going to understand that. They’re going to remember that you took them away from their mom and then let her die, instead of stopping her and taking her some place to get better.

    They are going to hate you because you didn’t help Mommy get to a doctor to make her better and think that police officers are hypocrits.

    Kids get very attached to their parents. It doesn’t matter how horrible the parent is. This is the person they’ve depended on and if they can’t trust Mom or Dad, then why should they trust anyone else. It’s easier to say “Mommy was just sick”, than believe Mom was going to kill them too.

    If I were born with a wire hanger sticking out of my head I think I would be predisposed to hate my mother.

    Jumped off a bride… heh. “Hey! Get off her, that’s my wife!”

    Hunter S. Thompson shot himself this weekend, too. I was real disappointed in the coverage of it, too. I mean, sure, he got really mean and bitter there for the last couple of years until he was a parody of himself, but at least he could go out in true Gonzo style. I mean, how did he shoot himself? The stories don’t say.

    I’m hoping for a gizmo-machine type deal where he offed himself by jizzing on a photoelectric eye that caused a couple of machine guns to cut him in half while a shotgun blasted his head off. That’s how I would do it if I decided to off myself.

    If you were born with a wire hanger sticking out of your head, you would be predisposed to getting paid in Funyons and biting at the air.
