Dear TOTVers,

Why the need to dig into the tragedies of others? And on a public forum, too?

It is unseemly at best and beyond callous at worst.

Over the years, this has been all too common around here. I am reminded of those nature shows where hyenas circle.

(Yeah. Yeah. I know. Delete MY post. Oh, the irony of that. But, hey, whatever.)

Sincerely,
Boomer, who just felt like finally saying something

Who knows what suffering preceded it. And what suffering is left?

Move along, nothing to see here....Seems to me the indifference, and insignificant that a villager decided to end his, her life in public...Person, desired to make a statement.. Look what happened to me, wanted life and death to be known..... If the deceased desired privacy, theres always the bedroom...IMHO..

Same reason I check the obits in my local paper. In case it was someone I know, it'd be helpful to know that so I can attend the funeral, or offer condolences to the family or maybe even do a little grieving myself. Dismissing people who want to know what happened, just because they ask, is - dismissive.
