    RIP and condolences to the family (who are even more so victimized by a suicide, doomed to spend a good part of their lives tormented and wondering what they might have seen or done to prevent it).

    I don't think a lot of people understand that suicide is a sickness. These people are not themselves at these times. I coach high school baseball and 1 of my kids killed himself a couple years after he graduated. During the time I coached him he was one of the best kids I had ever had the pleasure to coach. A++++ kid. His mom died in a freak accident and he suffered with this and other issues obviously. The mind is so complex that you can't imagine the directions it will lead. I coached his younger brother and he handled the circumstance so differently. To suggest that you don't have sympathy is ignorant. You need to understand the depth of this reality before you can really feel sympathy. The sad part is that someone can get so removed from the real self that they would be compelled to take such a drastic measure. That is were the sympathy lies. Life can be so cruel that someone can not be saved or led a different direction. RIP to another soul that was seriously ruined by this sad circumstance.

    Although I know what your saying I can't completely agree. I mean you don't know what the guy is feeling, the things he's thinking, and what he's been through. Maybe he had some kind of self esteem issue or whatever it may be, but the fact of the matter is he took the unfortunate path and maybe he felt like he didn't have any options left. And I am in no way endorsing this tragic event but I am just saying don't assume everyone who commits suicide is a coward because sometimes people cannot overcome certain bumps in the road without help.

    The only response I have to that, pal, doesn't belong in a thread like this. And I already changed my post. This isn't a debate I feel like getting into.

    I kinda have to agree with Armyfin here. He killed himself, he left a young son and a family behind during his selfish act. His family didn't deserve that and he acted selfishly. But my condolences to his family, my prayers go out to them.

    Bro. People dont have suicidal thoughts just cause they feel like it. Something must have happened or they have a special gene that makes them prone to it. How do you know he was selfish? He probably was weak, but that's not his fault. I do feel for him as he obvously had problems up in his brain that most likely weren't his fault. They were natural or came by what may have hapenned during his life.

    For 1, this is a message board, not a funeral.Having spent 9 yrs in the military (where the suicide rate is well above civilian life) having been through 3 deployments, going for #4 next month, I've seen my fare share of suicides.I have 0 respect or remorse for people who feel life is so bad they decide the only thing left to do is make life worse for everyone that knows them.Our chaplains assistant blew his brains out all over his living area...why? bc his gf broke up with him. Get ****ing real.I've been through a lot and seen a lot of ****, why would I take the easy route for me and make everything worse for everyone around me? No thanks, it's just not in me. I'm sorry if my feelings or views are not in line with yours, but at least we can both hate the Jets.

    I never killed myself when 2 of my best friends did in my arms after being **** at during a drive by. Or my brother who was part of the Charleston 9. It's a sad story, but to take your own life is a selfish act.

    this. My cousin tried to kill herself 2+ times over boyfriends that left her. It's the worse thing you can do to your family and friends.

    You people could atleast respect the friends and family involved in all this...you bring shame to being a dolphins fan or a human being for that matter.

    Lay off ArmyFin. The guy made his choice and took his own life. Nobody has to be sorry for him taking his own life. Is it a sad situation, yes. But don't think that anybody has to have sympathy for someone who would take their own life.

    So, I should have compassion and respect for a guy who willingly and knowingly decides to put his family and friends through hell??? No thanks, I'll pass.
