I was told this very interesting story by a friend recently.
A guy once climbed the top of his apartment building to jump and take his life. What her was unaware was, was that on one of the floors, the residents had extended a net out of their window.
On jumping, this man fell into the net and did not die, YET.
At the very same time, the resident man of the house was threatening his wife with a gun, and he fired a shot. This shot went outside the window and hit the jumper who then died.
When this case was bought up against the man with the gun in the court, everyone, including his wife, told the court that it had been his long habit and that his gun was never loaded. His wife even said that this was the reason that the gun (a licensed one) was bought in the first place.. so that he could fire an empty gun and vent his anger. Everyone also said that there was no way the old man could have put the bullet in the gun as he had no access to any bullets.
It was discovered that the young man who died was in a financial crisis as he had taken a heavy loan and was unable to repay it, so he had decided to take his life. But before this, he had decided on a plan. He knew his father had a habit to point and shoot a gun at his mother. He had filled the gun with bullets in the hope that his father might shoot his mother, get convicted and then he minght get the money. Due to sheer frustation of them not fighting when he expected, he had taken the other course.
The court ruled this judgement in favour of the father and said that as the son had himself filled the bullets in the gun, it was a case of suicide.
Do you agree with the judgement?
