Hanging Canberra’s leading suicide method for mental health patients.

By 25 May, 2012 9

The Open Government website has released an FOI request on suicides in the ACT by people in the care, or formerly in the care of Mental Health ACT between 2006 and 2012.

Majority men, but not overwhelmingly so. And hanging a clear favourite although carbon monoxide very popular.

Ingestion of caustic substance sounds like a particularly drawn out way to go about it.

The excuses used in that letter for hiding so much more information than really necessary border on laughable. “The size of the ACT” and the “possibility” someone JUST MIGHT be identified (they’re already dead for God sake!) and “privacy” of the families I mean what about those who die of other causes, like “road trauma”, their names get released in just a day or so? Ay? And what about murder victims, they get identified pretty quickly. No FOI bullshit there!

Stinks of double-standards covering up the suicide taboo if you ask me. What about the privacy of the families of people killed in road crashes AY???? WHAT THE HELL IS THE DIFFERENCE????????

Notice how suicide methods (aka the word the cult uses) does not include reasons.

Things like Previous medical injury, legal aid ACT, and Government departments all seemed to of missed out.

The final act may of included a knife, rope, or some other enabler but to disregard the act and reduce a persons life into a chart is just a cruel and cold hatred thing best done by brainwashed feminists.

In-case you didn’t guess – i am suggesting that report is very selective at best, if not false. I don’t recall seeing a death by fire resulting from car crash – but then again without the ability to read minds one could assert any person who died in fire was 100% sane.

Perhaps the next report will include such facts like the Government Departments used or not used by people who performed a ‘selective’ suicide method that could be detected – Because for public release, I bet they still do those reports about bodies floating or sinking in water!

You don’t have to release the name of your family member that dies in a car crash. My family never did when our beloved family member died and it has never been public.

“all seemed to OF” “may OF included”

Clearly well educated, no wonder we’re all confused…

I always thought it was lawful for the media to publish the names after the family has been notified – I don’t know if they are required by law to seek consent from the family or an authority.

There is a double standard operating as the media would turn up to film it if they could:
eg: So if you have a Siege here in Canberra, get your ID with big sign on the 9am news making demands, then commit suicide – your name cant be used in these kind of reports? really and that is the law is it?

Seems there are a few shades of grey going on in the readings.

Still – for the fools who will stalk me – I would like to know the names, and which departments had or had no dealings with these people – were they offered a first home buyers grant, how about IVF? could they fill in the form? were they made fun of by people who could file the forms? were they guilty of crimes? were they subjected to crimes?
