    Reading all your posts and I think your thinking seems to be special imo.

    A person who lost his life because he do not treasure it and those who kana raped or die due to famine is totally different thing.

    AND

    A person who commit suicide to escape he reality and cause lot of troubles to other innocent people is

    Oh right, you are really a compassionate person.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    I don't agree with the idea of suicide. I believe in having compassion for the pain and suffering of others.

    Having compassion for a suicide victim is to empathise with the desperation and pain that he/she was feeling when they decided to do so. The sorrow that the family members will feel.

    That's why we have support groups right? Because we emphatise with their pain and want to help them work through their pain. It's not that we want to prevent suicide incidents that would cause inconvenience right? Doubt that the agenda of the support groups.

    I guess what disturbs me that a life is lost and how indifferent some felt towards the loss of life. As I have mentioned earlier, we don't need to feel anything, but the least we can do is not feel indifferent or be insensitive.

    If a loss of life is cannot cause a slight inconvenience on the routine schedule of catching an MRT, I am not sure how tuachung it has to be to cause that inconvenience..I sure hope my thinking is NOT that special.

    What we should do is to condemn such acts. Not only for jumping onto tracks, but also any other form of suicide. Tell them that the burden that they were carrying is only being passed onto someone else, i.e.: family.

    HI AReality, when you are in trouble, and worried and in fear..you do know that you are a burden to people around you, right? People who walk to that end needs help, that's all.

    Nowadays, with the internet and citizen reporters, breaking news are being reported almost instantaneous.

    I read about the news from the hardwarezone forum when a member put it up in the forum about incident at Yishun MRT.

    Most if not all will have certain degree of sympathy for someone who die.
    To die unnaturally is by own decision.
    So to die and cause so many trouble to innocent people around is not encourage at all, you can always choose somewhere else or other methods.

    I agree totally... there is 101 ways to die (i think there is more now...) but question is, why is it so simple for ppl to jump into the path of the MRT?

    Last time, dunno which case, a lady died, then they dun have footage, dunno if she commited or murder... now i dunno if the CCTV is even up anot... next question... y is it after so long, yet there isn't a barricade or fence to prevent such incidence? Shouldn't the main problem be to prevent such events from happening next time than to actually find the cause of death? If these precautions doesnt' come up, we'll probably see it coming every other day... compassion will surely die off after this... and everybody will be surely indifferent... and next, everyone will convert to lecture the immediate families instead of showing compassion...

    not the 1 hour late to meet sweetheart and to have breakfast...
    instead...
    an hour late to open shop to capture sales for a shop owner
    an hour late to prepare food to sell for hawker
    an hour late to attend an oversea tele-conference that involve 1 important customer
    an hour late to listen to the last advice from your mentor that is dying at hospital
    an hour late to....

    how about all those money and man hours put in for investigation and clearing the scene for someone that is sick of living in this world?
    I will not symphatize those that does not treasure themself and their families and jump down the track to end his/her life.

    I hardly stand at the rear of the MRT n even I do, it was during underground station. So, recently, I stand ard there n I notice something which could prevent such accident to happen again if MRT decided not to install any barrier for ground station.

    They should reduce the speed of the MRT while approaching station. They can stop for other train to pass, why not before the station, they reduce to 20 km/h? Judge from the speed they approaching the station, abt 50km/h or more. For braking in a instance from that speed is impossible and so, got ppl die in the end. Therefore, best is for them to reduce speed till 20km/h before entering the station n therefore, they could brake in time if some ppl decided to jump or by accident. On top of that, ppl inside the train also feel safer if someone jump n the train jam brake.

    Really hope the MRT will make some amendment on it.
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    Death is death, loss of life. Natural or unnatural, a life is lost. In the loss of life, all we can feel is the inconvenience it's causing us, that's quite a sad situation. Imagine, if one died, and what others think about is "SOB ah, couldn't he/she have died somewhere else..now i have to freaking take the bus!" OR "Crap! Have to take leave to attend the funeral, how troublesome"

    Having sympathy for loss of life is by no means encouraging suicide or death. Its a reflection on how one values life (own and others).

    I agree..i think a lot just sees it TOO superficially and even have a perverted perception of it.

    I travel to Taipei a lot. Take the subway very often too. In normal operation, there's are officers with batons and freaking whistles to make sure that people are standing behind the yellow line. He'd pretty much blow the whistle in your face if you step beyond the line.

    A few months ago, i heard they had a case of a jumper. After that, i started seeing barricades up along the track except to the doors of the train. And now, i realised that it's up at all stations and stops.

    the cctv may not be functioning for the same reason photography is not allowed. They scared ppl use the recorded tapes to plan terroist attack? want to die go somewhere else to die, why inconvenience others. Last month my friend knock some crazy guy who suddenly out infront of his car. The guy was argueing with his GF/wife den decided to commit suicide by jumping into my friend's path. My friend got demerit points, have free coffee at police station, pay fines somemore for careless driving. Police said as long as you knock someone its careless driving, no arguement. stupid rule.

    i have no sympaty for ppl who commit suicide. for their family yes. its damm stupid.
