Woman wrongly stripped off her pension commits suicide

The 81-year-old had been left reliant on her savings when the Department for Work and Pensions stopped paying her pension.
This is how a society looks like when people are withdrawn their most essential needs because of the law or whatever. You get your society's elders jumping off roofs because you want to save some of the taxpayer's money. Think about it.
An inquest into her death heard Mrs Worrall described as too proud to tell her family about her financial problems. The inquiry heard she had previously said she would throw herself off a quarry if she ended up with any major health or financial worries.

She had previously insisted to commit suicide this way because she know she probably might end up bankrupt. This is sick, simply sick.

He added: "It's a disgrace how this can happen in modern society and what concerns me is that this could happen to someone else."
Same. My condolences to the bereaved family that has lost he... show more

I don't know if it's a general #clampdown or if a bunch of #random whims are synchronizing on me, but it feels like people are being told to fuck off and die right now. The #Trump people are certainly active. They are just going to do what they are going to do. People talk about "oversensitive" men lately. They talk about the "fragile male ego." Lots of laughing at people "losing their privilege" and the like. Those people are the #canary in your coalmine.

Men like me are committing #suicide at record rates, and the response for society is a gigantic yawn. From the left it is barely disguised celebration. You know... the rich psychopaths who are doing this, they aren't the ones who are killing themselves.


 

Senate discusses stricter gun control in red flag cases

Red flag laws—also called extreme risk protection orders—allow law enforcement or civilians to petition a judge to have firearms removed from the possession of someone who they believe is at risk of harming themselves or others. The individual has the opportunity to protest the order. If it’s enacted, however, they may not purchase or posses a firearm for a minimum of 180 days.

Those in favor of red flag laws state the regulation can prevent violence, particularly suicides. Those in opposition argue that unless the law addresses the value of the second amendment and provides for due process, it can be used to disarm innocent people.
You're no longer innocent when you possess a gun you are able to use. From this moment on, you are suspicious.
Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) co-sponsored legislation with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) proposing federal red flag laws after the 2018 Parkland school shooting, but it was unsuccessful. Sen. Marco Rubio

New findings on mysterious death of former Russian press minister Mikhail Lesin


That detail, however, and others contained in the 149-page file released exclusively to RFE/RL offer the most precise scientific description to date about Lesin's death, which officials ruled accidental and said was caused by blunt-force injuries amid excessive alcohol consumption.

Despite the official conclusion that his death was "accidental," Lesin's links with Russia's ruling elite, the bizarre circumstances of his demise, and a string of strange deaths of Russians across the globe have fueled persistent speculation that he may have been killed.

"I explained that the position of the hyoid is protected by the mandible and that fractures are commonly associated with hanging or manual strangulation. I also said that I could not exclude a significant fall as a cause for the fracture, but I would expect soft-tissue injury to be associated with the impact," the official, whose name was also redacted, wrote.

Former top political adviser to president Obama died aged 58


Alan Krueger, 58, died on Saturday, according to a university announcement. His family said in a statement: "It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics, took his own life over the weekend.

Krueger was chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Obama from 2011 to 2013. In that role, he sought to draw attention to the problem of inequality and promote ways of increasing economic mobility.

"Alan was someone who was deeper than numbers on a screen and charts on a page," Obama said. "He saw economic policy not as a matter of abstract theories, but as a way to make people’s lives better."

Burberry apologises for model wearing noose


“We are deeply sorry for the distress caused by one of the products that featured in our A/W 2019 runway collection Tempest,” said Burberrry CEO Marco Gobbetti in a statement provided to Fortune. “I called Ms. Kennedy to apologize as soon as I became aware of this on Monday and we immediately removed the product and all images that featured it. Though the design was inspired by the marine theme that ran throughout the collection, it was insensitive and we made a mistake. The experience Ms. Kennedy describes does not reflect who we are and our values. We will reflect on this, learn from it and put in place all necessary actions to ensure it does not happen again.”

Seriously, what the heck is wrong with the designers who thought this was a good idea to launch it iin the concern's collection? What did they think, what made them think this looks good, they should put it on the market?

Suicide increase in the US by state since 1999, per the CDC

Or, a caution against reading too much into an infographic


CDC infographic

Suicide in the US has increased by from 6% to 54% in the US (depending on state) between 1999 and 2016. (Note that this infographic reports only the percentage increase, and does not compare raw per-capita numbers.) Nevada, inexplicably, is an exception, showing instead a 1% decrease. In general, it looks to me as though the percentage increase is greater in more sparsely populated states.

This second infographic is useful here. Compare the two. California saw a 14.8% increase, bringing it to 10.5 per 100,000. But it is so populous that that is almost 4,300 suicides. Utah's suicide rate went up 46% to 21.8 per 100,000 ... but that's still "only" 620. (Which is still 620 too many.) J... show more
