    I help everyone I can. I really do more than the average person but I still have opinions about it whether I vocalize it or not. I have no tolerance for people who choose to drag others into their crazy drama. Like all those school shooters who also shoot themselves. I would respect them more if they just shot themselves to begin with... or just asked for help (which I know is not always easy).
    True.

    And the end result is that these people get what they wanted - attention. Look how many posts, phone calls, forwards and news clips this dude is getting. Isn't this what he wanted?
    He got his attention... but negative attention?

    Personally, "positive attention" is an oxymoron. If you want attention, you can't choose whether it's positive or not, nor can you demand that people react with empathy.

    While it's not possible to control the reactions of other people, it's easy enough to place yourself in scenarios where the reactions are more likely to be positive or negative.

    So yeah, I was basically commenting more on the fact that this guy went into a situation knowing that the attention is more likely to be negative than positive especially with his actions. Is attention really what he wanted? Personally I can't say that with certainty.
