Imagine the feeling of millions of people judging you as you make a mistake that anybody could have made. It's ****ing humiliating and honestly if she did feel that death is better than to live in this crappy world full of bull**** then I can't do anything else than respect her decision. This might sound odd but her kid is old enough to take care of herself and seeing how stupid humans are (and have probably always been) suicide is probably less cowardly (I don't think it is actually) than what many people I see do to earn a living ****ing other people over. It's a cruel world out there.

Treat her with anti-depressants? We know this world is **** no matter how people try to make it seem worthwhile. This world is evolving way too fast for human emotions to adapt.

PS This isn't a suicide letter, just a different perspective to the situation.

I feel worse for the DJ's. They shouldn't have to live with the guilt of causing someone to kill themselves. It was unforeseen that the outcome of the call was going to be death. MOST people don't off themselves when they get pranked on the phone, that's not normal behavior.

oh heck, in some cultures suicide is the "honorable way" after you "shamed" someone or did something wrong

and most people don't get pranked on the phone while they are a nurse for a very high profile figure and then have that broadcast all around the world...

I agree that it sucks for the DJs to get that kind of attention, but can you see the pattern here? I think humanity is to blame. It's in our nature. People want this false sense of 'freedom' and everything that happened (prank, mass media attention, reporting, blame, expression) until now falls within those parameters.

I do see a pattern here. People aren't taking responsibility for anything anymore they just push it onto someone else. They just blame everyone else for their problems. For all we know she was already suicidal, but just waiting for the right reason to kill herself, so someone else can take the blame.

To be fair though that was one of the best prank calls since the infamous "I SEE OJ AND HE LOOKS SCARED!" cant believe she let them through.

Pranks backfire all the time, sure this was in the public eye but if she killed herself over something like this then she clearly must have had something else wrong with her, you don't just leave behind a husband and kids because you're embarrassed. Not trying to defend the DJ's either because it was a dumb thing to do but they could never have expected something like this to happen.

I'm sure she felt humiliated and embarrassed and that people react in stupid ways without 'wearing that shoe'....but is it totally fair to blame the public, because I'm sure there is the possibility that some heat could have come down from the royal family early on with 'how could you let something like this happen'?

"The two Australian radio DJs behind the royal hospital prank-call say they are heartbroken over the death of one of the nurses who took their call.Jacintha Saldanha, a mother of two children - was found dead on Friday, three days after transferring the call. Mel Greig and Michael Christian pretended to be members of the British Royal Family asking about the health of the Duchess of Cambridge."

Has anyone pointed out the fact that the person who committed suicide wasn't even a nurse who was pranked? It was a nurse who from my understanding answered the phone call and then passed it onto another person.

She didn't hang herself because she felt bad over the call, she did it because the hospital staff most probably gave her enormous amounts of **** about it and treated her like crap.
Of course, the hospital nor it's staff will ever admit to that.

Ignorant? We don't know anything about what happened, people come to their own conclusions based on what's been in the media. I'd rather wait for the results of the inquest.
