According to a recently released MSNBC report, Chen Fuchao, a man who was drowning in debt, was standing on top of a bridge, apparently contemplating how to end his life when 66-year-old Lai Jiansheng pushed him off a ledge. Lai said "I pushed him off because JUMPERS LIKE CHEN ARE VERY SELFISH. Their actions violate a lot of public interest. THEY DO NOT REALLY WANT TO KILL THEMSELVES. INSTEAD THEY JUST WANT TO RAISE THE RELEVANT GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES' ATTENTION TO THEIR PLIGHT". Mr. Lai, what is wrong with that? THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT AND THERE'S NOTHING ILLEGAL ABOUT SOMEONE WANTING TO COMMIT SUICIDE. IT IS ILLEGAL HOWEVER TO HELP SOMEONE COMMIT SUICIDE, AS YOU HAVE DONE.
It is illegal to commit suicide and abet others to suicide. Only because the suiciding man will be dead and cannot be tried, nothing can be done after suicide. If he is caught before death, he can be tried legally. But abetting others for suicide is a crime, equal to murder and he can be tried accordingly.
Chen didn't die. Here's the MSNBC report.
Passer-by pushes suicide jumper in China
Quote - "Chen fell 26 feet (8 meters) onto a partially inflated emergency air cushion laid out by authorities and survived, suffering spine and elbow injuries"
Possibly you are getting Chen mixed up with the former South Korean President Roh that committed suicide?
