Oh dear, this is indeed troubling!Sad...Sad...Sad...
Very sad. I'm also perturbed by all those laying heaps of
blame on the crank callers. It was a joke. It was not malicious nor personal.
They did not cause this suicide any more than a person going through a green
light, t-boning a car coming through a red due to distracted driving, caused the
distracted driver's death. They unwittingly walked into a bad situation
that already existed (I believe this because no one commits suicide because of a
random joke or crank call, unless there were other HUGE factors involved that we
don't see). Certainly in hindsight the callers would have avoided it, but
we don't get to live life in hindsight. And we don't park our cars
forever out of fear that an inattentive person may cause their own death by
making a mistake in front of us.A lot of people are making a
knee-jerk reaction to this and crucifying the crank callers. I wonder, if they
commit suicide in two days due to this blame game (which IS malicious and
personal), if people will feel guilty for causing THAT suicide?? It would
certainly be far more justified.
