The Public Thinks (Or Not) About Suicide

In a pair of comment threads, anonymous citizens confront two police suicides: one about an officer who killed himself after he was involved in a car accident that killed a fellow officer, and one about an officer who killed himself after he was involved in a deadly tasering incident.

  1. apologies for calling into doubt your intelligence over your views on ev-psych. i'm a crabby old man at the age of 33. i just disagree with you.

  2. I don't think we disagree - I just think my sense of humor is a bit surreal and in-jokey.

    This all reminds me that I haven't yet written on the interesting question of how ev bio might help us understand suicide.

  3. I guess they caught a dose of the disease of depression.

    Gee, it's as if events in their lives caused them to want to kill themselves.

    Funny that.
