I agree! That's why these tragedies do happen also in real life.

For me suicide is a very cowardly act. I would gladly take the pains of life and persevere than kill myself.

if you're not in the position of which the persona is den how would you answer such a question?
one does not know the extreme thought and reasons of why someone did something due to the fact we are not in their shoes,its impossible to judge the persona because ,maybe just maybe if you was in that position your mindset would change in an instant

Lol. I don't think I'd ever have the "courage" to kill myself (or commit a crime in the first place, for that matter), so I'd probably face my consequences.

I support you. The word, "understanding is a very complicated one. It is easier said than done.

Most of the people agree that if you have done some crime, you should be punished

I really don't think there is an easy way out. And I completely rule out the suicide option. You should always behave in a way that makes you ready to face the consequences.

Before one knowingly commits a crime, they must have weighed the options. It would be more dignified to face the music when the time comes rather than slinking away cowardly. It's all about accepting responsibility for your actions.

I have never been in this kind of trouble, and I would like to think that if I ever found myself in this predicament I would accept my punishment, but people do questionable things when faced with punishment so I cannot answer and know that is is honestly what I would do. Again, I'd like to think I'd do the right thing, or just not be in the situation at all.

Regardless of the situation you find yourself in, and whether other people contributed to it, it's important to take full responsibility for all of it yourself- ultimately, all things considered, it was YOU that got yourself into that situation. No one else.

And in terms of suicide, some people are being very quick to judge on this thread. There's as much bravery in that act as there is cowardice, and there are a million ways in which it could be the right thing to do. Some would say that only God can judge you. I would say that only you can judge you.

Mistakes can be improved whether they are committed knowingly or unknowingly. But crimes need to be rectified by punishing the criminal. I think I will face the punishment.

If the punishment is likely to turn me in a mentally ill person, I would take the easy way out.
