    This is hilarious. I wonder why Chen didn't pull Lai down with him. I would have.

    Thanks for the correction.

    The malignancy of intent demonstrated by Jiansheng remains dynamic, irrespective of outcome.

    In other words, good luck doesn't alter the need to examine motivational impulses that led to Jiansheng's decision / subsequent defense of his action.

    The incident itself is less important than the events that led up to its justification.

    The guy didn't die, I can see why he did it actually. I think it's sort of funny personally. Failed attempt at suicide because someone pushed him off, the irony. If you watch the video it actually seems like the guy aimed for the would be suicide victim to land on the cushion. It seems like he was arrested because the authorities didn't know what else to do.

    Just my 2c.

    uh, cheering someone on to jump doesn't mean they don't have a value system. it just means they didn't value his life any more than he did.

    same here. not saying it's always the case, but ime, i've had at least nine friends and family commit suicide, and every time it was successful, it was a complete shock to everyone. those friends, etc. that threaten(ed) it publicly are alive and well and still doing it today. like it's another way of throwing a funeral when you're still alive, just to see who fell for it and showed up, what they said, and how hard they cried. pure selfishness.

    of course i feel bad when someone does it, but at the same time, i can't control or save the world. at some point, i had to accept the fact that they made their choice, and take from that a more conscious attempt to watch and listen to those i love a little more carefully.

    Could be less - perhaps Jiansheng is simply a psychopath, acting on his own accord to disseminate his personal M.O., which in no way reflects the social system of his origin. After all, the story was bizarre enough to earn a position in Reuters...
    on the other hand, he may not have done it as a punitive measure, but simply to make way for the affected entities to resume progress.

    eliminating an obstacle, rather than punishing an offender.
    Jiansheng should have known that the fall wouldn't kill Chen.

    rash action is rarely explained well -- idiot right brainers.

    Jiansheng mentioned about how selfish Chen was. i suppose it could be interpreted either way: either being about punishing a criminal or removing a [selfish] road-block.

    dude, i laughed as well.

    and after watching the video i think the pusher did the exact right thing. i would have pushed this douch bag into the giant cushion too if he had held me up for 5 hours. the title of the thread made it sound like the guy threatening suicide actually died instead of sufferring a fractured wrist or whatever.
    I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the prime of my life.

    That made me sick.
