Encouraging suicide via the internet.

There was a program on tonight about this person.

William Melchert-Dinkel: Minnesota Nurse Suspected Of Encouraging Suicides

The reason I am posting is that for the vulnerable out there ( usually teens) that if you ever become aware of anyone being counseled to do this...please talk to the authorities.

Some people are sick. I can't imagine the pain his victims families are feeling; especially since he isn't going to court.

The good thing is in the program on tonight they say that the authorities have charged him and he will be having his day in court.

So the update is good.

But so many unwary people out there and I am sure he isn't the only one doing this.

I remember one story where a bunch of people hounded one depressed person to kill themselves over a chat line and he did in fact commit suicide.

Sadly Spyder, I'm sure your right. With all the cyber bullying out there, I'm sure there are hundreds (if not thousands) of unessecary suicides that happen. Not saying any suicide is necessecary, but still...

That is ridiculous I can't believe someone would do something like that. Well I can I suppose with the way the world is but I don't want to.

These are predators of the worst kind.

And teenagers are the most vulnerable. So I am posting this so one little corner of the net will be aware that predators do always come knocking at your front door, but through a screen where you should feel safe.

I think this case was like couple years back, right? There were several other cases since that too. I just read about woman couple weeks back.

It's sick, simply sick. Such people should be behind the bars (either jail or mental hospital).

I think it's sad and sick.

I agree that especially teenagres are vulnerable to that since they're already going through vulnerable age. Tho in many cases, I believe, there are also other bullying and for example for bullies at school it can be one channel more to bully. And then there are sick people like that out there. What would really be motives behind that?

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
