A Central California man died after posting a suicide note on Facebook and then driving his car onto railroad tracks about an hour later, as friends and family frantically tried to get in touch with him.

Antjuan Miguel Colvin, 21, was struck by a train going about 75 mph in Hughson on Christmas night and pronounced dead at the scene, Stanislaus County sheriff's Sgt. Anthony Bejaran told the Modesto Bee ( ).

you just made yourself look like a jerk

Amen Granny....

I had two uncles, a co-worker and a best friend's 30 year old son who all committed suicide and each had their own personal reason for doing so and it wasn't selfishness.......

I hate these threads and the people like Casie who are attracted to them. They profess to know everything about mental illness when in fact they don't know crap.

Some claim that just because they may have had a family member commit suicide that somehow gives them the moral superiority to comdemn the poor people who have died.......

I wanted to address the part that it is indeed a selfish act.

Don't because you know nothing about mental illness and the vast number of causes of suicide. Mood disorders, medication, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, schizophphreniform disorder, post traumatic disorder, are just several of the most common causes.......

They all require medical help and in most cases, proper medication.....

How stupid are you?**************thank you for asking...

Obliviously I am not as stupid as you. What you posted didn't happen. You must live in the world of WHAT IF. I think a lot of people do....What not the world for you...Or maybe I misread the article and hundreds of people died due to a train derailment.

You are so right....people think nothing about a malfunction of any of our organs...If a bone can break, a brain can also malfunction...people fear and will not admit that, its too scary to think it could happen to them...The reason people fear also is when the brain is malfunctioning, it effects behavior....Cat scans and especially Pet scans show in real time with pictures what parts of the brain are not functioning....try living as some schizophrenics do when the pet scan shows over 1/2 of the brain is not functioning....I pass no judgment on this poor soul, no one could see his pain because they cannot see what part of the brain may not be working....Lots of judgment and arrogance going on here, more so than when other suicides are written about....

The only one that knows the total story of this soul is Jesus, the rest is just so much name calling and judgment from those that have never been in that deep hole called clinical depression....and its not, as some seem to think just selfish or feeling down for a couple of days. Brains can go wrong is many ways...believe it, know it and pray it doesn't happen to you or one you wouldn't even have a clue as to how to help that person except to tell them to quit being so selfish I gather from many of the replies...In other words, your useless in dealing with such people at best, and do more damage at worse...

Although you are correct, I think that misses the point.

People who choose to off themselves are usually so consumed with emotional pain they are unable to understand that the method of their suicide will possibly bring distress to others. This guy probably just saw the train as a huge, deadly force that could end it all quickly and did not consider that a human being was driving that train.

Also, people in such a state usually have such low self worth they are convinced that no one will care if they kill themselves. Indeed, they are certain everyone else will be better off without them. They actually think they are doing everyone else a favor by killing themselves.

My my aren't you the compassionate one. I take it your not too religious.

If the 75mph train derailed and brutally killed several dozen unsuspecting innocents, would ya still have compassion for this self centered AH?

What you posted didn't happen.

Tell me grandma...How in hell did this AH know this prior to pulling in front of a 75mph train? This AH endangered everyone within 200 yards of his self centered azz.

Being stupid is not compassionate grandma.
