News from New York: The First Suicide of the Semester

From Mr. Schrathe, the blog of a New York City Police Officer:
I was called to my first suicide of the semester. You can usually set your watch to when the first kid will decide he/she cannot live without their beau or nobody undrstands them because they are gay or they failed a med exam or something along those lines. Last night was the first of them. Now in the last three days I've done three shootings, half a dozen gun point robberies, a stabbing turned immolation and the usual number of laptop and/or i-Pod burglaries... The suicide last night was a white American kid who committed Seppuku...
