Attempted Suicide Turned Attempted Murder

In Law on January 3, 2008 by Petr Bokuvka

A young man is on trial in the Czech town of Zlin for attempted murder. A few months ago he wanted to commit a suicide by crashing head-on into another car on a two-lane freeway. The innocent driver was seriously injured. The young man might spend even fifteen years in prison. According to a psychologist he knew what he was doing and he did not care that what he was doing could very well injure a complete stranger involved…

Yep, in the Czech Republic men often choose the more theatrical methods of suicides, like jumping from bridges or with the use of a firearm. Women swallow pills, cut their wrists…

During the years 1996 to 2003: 12,982 people commited a suicide, of which 10,243 were men!
