    Maybe, maybe not, many months or years down the line. That does not pay for funeral costs and bills due right now though.

    You can't legislate stupidity. If you could there would be no politicians.

    Who gives a crap about a youtuber? Thousands of people die every day, and some much more important than this. I don't remember news about them though.

    Yeah, their self-preservation level is over 9000.

    But one can still dream.
    As you could have notice, he killed lady and her daughter. And people here think more about them than that particular out-of-control guy.

    Just a heads up, anyone disrespecting anyone in this thread will have actions taken against them.

    Maybe to highlight the need for mental awareness and support? I don't know the story about this guy, I don't know if he killed himself intentionally or he's an immature kid with a sportscar or whatever.. but it seems like more and more people that I'd expect to live relatively good lives are killing themselves or taking their depression/aggression out on other people.. whether through suicide or mass shootings or whatever.

    I grew up in an upper-middle class neighborhood and the general response to depression and/or bullying was "stop being a pussy".. people that went to therapists/psychologists were considered weak, losers, etc. This was just prevalent throughout my childhood, in schools, etc. I was of similar mindset until I got out of college, was over a hundred thousand dollars in debt, lost physical contact with nearly all my friends through various location changes, and had some very close relatives and role models in my life pass away, among other issues. I realized then that depression isn't some random thought you can just magically fix by "stop being a pussy" it's more like being stuck in a mental loop that's really f*cking hard to get out of. My situation wasn't even that bad and while I didn't seek professional help, it took a lot of time and some really good, patient friends, to snap out of it and get my life on track.

    While I don't think therapy is going to solve everyone's problems, I'd like to think it's going to help people break that loop and be a significantly better solution than just either ignoring the problem, or randomly labeling people "lunatics" - like you're suggesting, or just telling them to "snap out of it" and expecting it to just magically improve itself. I think highlighting how tragic these events are, raising awareness and making treatment and options available to people is the best way to prevent tragedies like this.

    If it's one thing I've learned from every time I've come in contact with mental health issues of people is, that there is no general way to look at it. Not everybody can "man up" and swallow depression down, not everybody can be helped with therapy, and not everybody wants to take medication that might or might not help.

    Mental health is a one per person medicine, you can't fix all people with one recipy or pill and that's it. And you can't look into a person and see what's happening in them.
