      Seek professional help. And start using your turn signal before cutting me off, for crying out loud. It’s not Gran Turismo.

    2. Respect says:

      How dare you. You all have no idea what can haunt ones mind and drive a human being to commit such an act of desperation. Who knows what creeps into the crevices of ones thoughts to cause him to choose such an urgent and awful departure. Especially one who has seemed collected and reassured. I pray for the likes of you.

    Levi Johnston?? There wouldn’t be any brain splatter.

  6. Wyandotte says:

    Levi’s making big bucks while you are unemployed

  7. israel says:

    What time is it? I’m hungry!

  8. Compassion says:

    You all are really sick and have no compassion for another human being who was obviously depressed. I will pray for this person, but more for you all who are just selfish!!! I hope he was not one of your relatives.

  9. Empathy says:

    In agreement with “Compassion”
    This person had people who loved him – your karma is nothing to be desired. Good luck with the rest of your pathetic existence. I knew him.

  10. Donnie the Kommie says:

    Some of these comments are “So LA.”

  11. sad but not sorry says:
