Man kills himself in federal courtroom after verdict

Man kills himself in federal courtroom after verdict

A man on trial in Fargo, North Dakota, slashed his own throat in the courtroom Monday and died after the jury verdict. The man’s identity and the nature of his verdict were not immediately clear. Authorities said the man had a sharp instrument that might have been made of plastic. Court security officers and deputy marshals attempted live-saving measures in the courtroom.

I'd feel bad for him, but considering he thought this was better than being incarcerated.. probably don't feel as bad for him anymore. He probably did something heinous, didn't want to pay the price, instead chose his own punishment. Maybe we should be mad at him instead for not taking his punishment like a man.

I agree that there isn't enough info to decide on this. There was a brief reference to stalking charges, but it was a federal court. Really odd.

So when people want to get executed by the police by literally telling them to shoot him. Cops end up doing what the psycho wanted. Suicide by cop. Because they either didnt wanna go back to prison, there life sucks or whatever the case is. This guy does it in a public forum and its omg I feel so bad for him. He mustve really didnt wanna go to prison. So much sympathy for a man who obviously didnt show any sympathy in performing this act in front of alot of bystanders who have to live with the mental image of watching a man slit his throat, gargle on his own blood and die right in front of them. No sympathy from me.

Slashing ones own throat is as manly a suicide as it gets. Props to him. Anyone remember Maddox's old article calling out emo cutters and suggesting they do exactly this?

***Puts on scholar cap and robe and starts to hand out Darwin awards** One for you, and you, and you, and especially you - your gunna need this. **waits to the end to hand one to this guy** Isn't it nice when Darwin pours some bleach in the gene pool? Have a great day and remember - don't run with scissors kids. 😃 Do''t blame me, ''m just a moose. Darwin is the one being liberal with all that bleach. Oh yeah, and sometimes I say stupid things.

Wow. He must have been devestated. Not clear on what happened though. I think he prob killed someone while driving? Something along those lines, and had a weapon. Guess we wait and see.
