Are we all sure these people are for real??

Whenever somebody sadly shoots themselves or dies in a street racing accident we get someone coming on here with bizarre names who writes like they didn’t make it into primary school blaming everyone else. Surely someone is taking the p*ss.

i like the bit were PRIP goes and complains everyones talking about pierre on a website and he himself is fueling the threading fire.

And yeah, if i was him, knew he had a gun and was suicidal-i wouldn’t trust the police telepathy and actually report it so that i’d have my mate around for a lot longer.
I don’t think anything the police did contributed to this bloke having a bad life and in turn ending it.

Shannski, you sound like a very reasonable person and i feel sorry for you loosing your friend-all the best to you.
As for PRIP, you yourself have some issues you need to sort out, i understand your loss but you don’t go taking out personal threats to someone you don’t know over the net, and blaming others for their own decisions

And DJ, I totally agree with your comments, you would def rat out your friend to help them no matter what, and if you were the friend you say you were, you’d def spell their name right!!!

I’m not sure how anybody can ever blame anybody else for a suicide. It’s hardly a ‘look what you made me do’ crime. From what I’ve heard this bloke had problems but solving them at the point of a gun is never an answer. You’d also have to question why Pierre had a gun in his boot in the first place. It’s hardly an approved storage facility for such things.

I understand Pierre may have been your friend, I knew him for 12 years, But This is a forum, And your behavior on here is disgraceful, You made Pierre look bad, you made the police look bad, and you made yourself look like a complete and utter idiot.

I wonder if PRIP has deliberately misspelled Pierre?

Very sad…

Anyone thought how she has been effected???
