A forlorn hope I fear.

I don't have sympathy for Clarke Carlisle but that's because one of my friends son was first on the scene when Clarke threw himself under a lorry and unfortunately he never got over the experience of seeing the way he was in and ended up taking his own life over it.
Also the lorry driver is still getting help now after what that prick did. If he takes his life so be it, but he shouldn't get innocent people involved in his actions.

But you are assuming that someone in so desperate a state that he planned to end his own life under the wheels of a lorry is capable of the sort of thought process that would allow him to even think about innocent people who will be affected by his actions.
I have never been suicidal but I have known people, including a family member, who have been, and when they get into a state so bad that they think the only way out is to end it all they really aren't thinking about the consequences for anyone but themselves.

I was saying this on another thread. Applying a rationale, and pretty cold, viewpoint to what is not a rationale situation just doesn't work.

Indeed. It's tragic when other people are affected. But blaming a mentally ill person for behaving in a way that others might consider odd, or even wrong, is like blaming someone with a broken leg for not being able to run very fast.

Whilst blaming Clarke Carlisle over the death of the friends son is a natural reaction, do you also blame the friends son for affecting the lives of innocent people like your friend and anyone else who knew him (yourself for example)?
