    N.J. cop shoots himself after car wreck

    What a strange story!
    Off duty cop gets in a wreck, while the first responders are trying to free him he shoots himself in the head.
    I wonder what the back story will wind up being?

    Had a 15 month old baby at home.
    I was wondering if he was stinking drunk and did not want to go through the embarrassment.
    But no one else hurt.
    Or did he think his injuries would have handicapped him for life?
    All speculation. Very sad story. Sorry for his family.

    I wonder if he was trying to kill himself in an accident and the firearm was a back up. Strange story. Very sad for his family.

    Thats the general consensus online.. So sad that a young man with a little baby at home could get to this point as his only recourse.. From all I have read he was a nice guy, caring and compassionate, and well loved by his fellow officers.. I just don't get it... bob

    From the article:
    New Jersey saw 17 police suicides last year and 37 since 2016, NJ.com reported. This has prompted the Attorney Generalís Office to launch a program requiring every officer in the state to take a two-day training course on mental health by the end of 2022.
    How about changing THINGS so the police are allowed to do their duty, follow the laws and not be forced to close their eyes when "certain groups" of criminals do terrible things? That would go a long, long, way to reducing LEO suicides on New Jersey. My opinion, of course.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Iím interested to know how you think that leads to officers committing suicide, and leaving their kids to grow up with no father. As far as Iím concerned, if that were the case, there are some serious underlying mental issues that are the real reason for the suicide, and that is what would need to be addressed in order to work towards fixing the suicide problems.

    So sad whenever anyone seeks suicide as a remedy for life's ups and downs.
    The most important thing I've learned in my 63+ years is "This too will pass" much too quickly for the ups and grindingly slow for the downs. But it does pass.
    Prayers to his family.

    Certainly not everyone who becomes a policeman does so to serve their community by enforcing the laws and "helping people" but a goodly percentage do. When those people are not allowed to do the job as they understood it, and department morale goes down and down, faster and faster, some of them get extremely depressed. Police persons who voluntarily seek counseling help for depression are taking a chance of losing their jobs. People who are extremely depressed are more likely to commit suicide. It is a very bad situation all the way around.

    AND I did say that what I wrote was my opinion. I think you were asking me how and why I formed that opinion. I hope the above clarifies why I feel the way I do.

    A two day class in mental health. Typical liberal stupidity. How about valuing your police, and your citizens? It might go a long way to redeeming that place. But then the Republicans might take office and straighten things out. Can't have that.

    I just find it hard to believe that someone could be perfectly fine mentally, then all of a sudden an election comes up and the results of that election drive someone to commit suicide.

    I have a close family member who was extremely depressed for almost 3 years. He did get counseling and medication, but was barely able to function. However, in public he could and did "put on a good face" (his words) so no one other than a very few people in the family knew his condition. People can seem to be perfectly fine when they are not.
