Committing suicide is a crime in the US not so that we can punish the depressed, but because, if it weren’t, it would be illegal for the police to enter a home to save someone they suspected was about to kill themselves.
There has to be reasonable belief that a crime is currently being committed or is about to be committed for the police to enter private property.
This had confused me for a long time and this explanation makes so much sense!!
Yeah, except crimes are crimes because they hurt people, what is killing yourself hurting?
I honestly don’t know why people are obsessed with people killing themselves. They don’t anything to do with them when they’re alive, but they also don’t want them dead.
It’s like people who want to ban abortions, as well as WAC. Go ahead and be an asshole, but don’t be a fucking hypocrite.
