Calling someone's bluff

I hate making fun of dead people, but if your stupid or deserved it then I really have no choice. This kid falls into both categories.

A teenager has plunged more than 15m to his death as others below urged him to jump and then took photos of his dead body.

Nine msn-Shaun Dykes, 17, committed suicide from the top level of a shopping centre carpark in the English regional centre of Derby yesterday after police tried to coax him away from the edge, the Daily Mail has reported.

But a group of onlookers below shouted encouragement at him over the three hour ordeal, according to police and witnesses.

"How far can you bounce?" one allegedly shouted as others told him to "Jump" and "Get on with it".

Police slammed the youths' behaviour as "a shocking reflection on society".

"People were at the police cordon shouting for the man to jump," Superintendent Andy Hough, from Derbyshire police was quoted as saying.

"We really need the public to work with us, not against us. It was a very disappointing situation."

But one witness said while most people were screaming and crying, further disturbing behaviour followed.

"There were several groups of youths who ran from behind the cordon and looked like they were taking pictures with their mobile phones," she was quoted as saying.

Mr Dykes allegedly suffered from depression and had recently been struggling with a relationship break-up.

Ironically, his MySpace page said he wanted to die "quietly" when the time came.

His best friend, Lindsey Reid, said he was joker who "smiled all the time and everyone knew him because he was so popular".

Now I really see nothing wrong with these kids tauting him. Can you imagine how hard it is to jump off a building? I could never do it. Probably can't even bungee jump or anything. These kids were just trying to give the kid support. If they weren't there he probably won't have jumped. Peer pressure is a powerful thing.

I could never understand why someone would want to kill themselves. The story states that this kid suffered through a rough breakup. So its obviously the girl's fault, not the kids yelling at him to jump. The best cure for a breakup is internet porn, lots of it.

To bad for this kid, a girl is no reason to kill yourself.
