Wow....I didn't even know about this until right now: http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/ … g1027.html
A grad student at Arizona State pulled out a gun and shot himself in his professor's office while in a meeting.
incredibly sad, and actually unfair to survivors. It seems that such people are hell-bent on making other people suffer because they suffer. But yeah, get on the list. Be aware.
Yeah, committing suicide in general is a selfish act. You're family and friends are left wondering why and some even cannot function after the incident.
Then, when you do it in front of others, you permanently scar those people for life. I can't imagine the dreams and nightmares these people must go through the rest of their lives.
Not to undermine the above story, but you live in Az. I have been obssessed with Az although I've never been...planning a trip next year, I can't wait.
That's seriously messed up.
Found a little more on it: http://www.kpho.com/news/21429492/detail.html
You ought to get on their emergency notification system.
What is with people wanting to shoot themselves in front of others? An acquaintance shot himself in front of his boss.
I wonder if it's to "get back" at them.
I wonder if this grad student got a bad grade or bad review/recommendation of some sort. Obviously, you don't go into a meeting with your professor with a gun because the relationship is great.
Just weird how someone who is obviously smart (about to graduate from grad school) could deteriorate so low mentally.
What is going in in your school Tim? Between the religious group skirmishes and gun-wielding grad students, it sounds very unstable.
Needless to say, that's pretty disturbing. I once wrote a newspaper thing on teen suicide (and I know this is somewhat different than the "run-of-the-mill" - for lack of a better phrase - suicide). The experts I interviewed said that so often someone is depressed/unhappy and then they use alcohol and/or drugs, which eliminate inhibitions that would otherwise stopped them from killing themselves. I'm guessing something similar could happen if someone has mental problems more serious than depression.
I do hate to hear about that. At least he did not take the gun to anyone else.
creepy creepy and sad. I can't believe how ppl can be so selfish like that and try and hurt those around them...even if it was by commiting suicide.
Wow thats terrible and sad at the same time. What drives these people to do this?
Today in our school paper, they released more info.
They said the student walked into the professor's office, both exchanged a greeting, and the student just took out a gun and shot himself.
It was quick like that. No arguing or anything. Basically, "hell" and "bang."
Very odd from someone about to graduate grad school.
The story I read said he was 59, I believe. Maybe the economy and poor prospect of employment became too much? I know this has been happening a lot, maybe not as dramatic as this, but some people are getting desperate and hopeless and aren't of strong enough mind to cope.

I was stunned to learn that Anthony Bourdain died by his own hand early yesterday morning--6/8/18. His colorful travel shows and excellent writing provided us all with a glimpse of people all over the world, teaching about their culture, history, and geography--through food. His descriptive...

Of course I won't but how would you react to someone who threatens to do this. Someone I know, fairly well, committed suicide this year. He had money worries and I feel really guilty that I did not take up his offer of carpentry work from a flier he put through my letterbox. I didn't know he was in...
