There are Some Things Money Can’t Buy

Why don’t Atlanta’s “Suicidal, text-messaging teens” just off themselves, and leave the innocent mother of three out of it? How hard is it to head on up Roswell Rd. to the Chattahoochee, tie a cement block to your own leg, and throw yourself off a bridge and into the river? Plus, the fishies would have something to eat.

Too bad her expensive private school education couldn’t buy this girl brains or respect for the lives of others. Too bad that she will probably be out on parole in seven years at the most.

    Uhh.. what exactly are you saying? That she went looking for a mom of 3 to kill at the same time? Isn’t it kind of clear she has some mental health issues and could benefit from some HELP, rather than punishment? Obviously take responsibility for your actions, but she was trying to DIE.. its sounds like if she had died you’d have liked her to live so you could punish her. Lucky you!

    I’m sure she needed “brains” to not attempt suicide.
    And yes, its too bad she’ll be “out on parole in 7 years” (why not 10? random number!).. when she surely would be best served rotting in jail. In fact, lets put anyone who is depressed and might try something similar in JAIL.. where mental health facilities and sunny dispositions abound!

    Everyone gets so angry but sadly it seems like its always at the wrong thing.

    Boy, i overestimate my own writing skills. I thought it was clear that I wish the people who wanted to kill themselves would do so in a manner that wouldn’t take innocent lives with them. I certainly am not saying that “if she had died, i would like for her to live, just so I could punish her,” but hey, way to put words into my mouth.

    At this point, i don’t really care what would be to her benefit or how she would best be served. And if she was so mentally unstable, where were her parents, and why was she driving a car? It doesn’t matter, because she will totally get off on the temporary insanity plea. In ten years, she will be out and having idiot offspring. And those three kids will still have no mother.

    You are right about one thing: It does make me angry. Just out of curiosity, at what or whom do YOU think I should be angry?

    I’m with Annie, if you are going to kill yourself don’t take the life of another person down with you. These kids will grow up without a mother because of the irresponsibleness of this girl. I’m all for helping when someone is sick…but now she’s got a whole other set of problems to deal with (jail time).

    “You are right about one thing: It does make me angry. Just out of curiosity, at what or whom do YOU think I should be angry?”

    Ha! Oh, James. You are right. What was I thinking! It is so clear.

    This is why I don’t drive and text.

    My vote is that the teenager never drives again legally. Both parents go to trial for manslaughter, and Georgia enacts a graduated licensing law, along with actually requiring prospective drivers to learn to drive.

    I totally agree with you Annie. It’s also how I feel about people who go on shooting rampages, if you are gonna do it, at least have the decency to kill yourself at the end, so we don’t have to pay for the trial or to lock you up/execute you later. Granted, I would prefer people not do it at all but….

    I also think that we should start letting the overpass jumpers jump. Or just put big nets off to the sides of each overpass. You jump then, you get caught and we’ll fish you out whenever we have the time.
