To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last - but eat you he will.
You know, if these people are willing to use State employees to help them commit suicide, I'd rather it be a doctor who can do it easily and painlessly.
LOL Doctor Jack did do that for awhile and he ended up going to prison.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013

Just another case of the cops going off on a citizen. We all know they could have just shot the red wire and helped the poor soul turn his life around.

BUT.....The sad thing is that this same logic is used by the anti-gun crowd when they look at a firearm on a person's hip. They think a person with a gun is likely to kill someone. So, to a certain extent, we don't really know what someone will do with an object until they do it. A person driving a Corvette can't be assumed to be a reckless driver, just because the car is capable of going very fast. A person carrying a box of dynamite might work for a mining company. (but if that person has it strapped to his body with wires protruding, we can assume it is for ill intent, since there is no good reason to do so!) It just takes a certain amount of discernment to know when to judge people by appearances. Since guns have both good and bad purposes, depending on the person, we aren't alarmed when we see a gun, but obviously a bomb is another thing altogether.
Wait, you guys don't walk around with bomb vests normally, to deter muggers?
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
It's a shame the railway station wasn't a "Bomb Free Zone." If only they had put a sign on the door saying bombs aren't allowed inside, this tragedy could have been averted.
