Damn.

WOW

FUCK
SHIT

Wow

this

just had to


This is actually untrue.
Suicide is illegal because when someone’s about to commit suicide, and the police know, they can’t go in and stop that person without legal reason.
If someone’s about to commit suicide and the police know, suicide being illegal lets them enter the place of residency and give that person whatever help they may need. It makes it so the paramedics can come in and help to take care of the person, give them medical care and attention.
Nobody actually goes to jail for trying to commit suicide. Not once have I ever seen that. Instead, they get medical care, whatever care they may need.
There’s a purpose behind everything. Not everything is as bad as you want it to be.

This is a fact!
There are two laws called The Baker’s Act and the Marchman Act. (in Florida…I don’t know what they are in other states, but I think they exist).
The Baker’s act allows a HOSPITAL to admit someone who is suicide inclined to receive physical and psychological help. From my understanding, they are required to take someone, regardless of their ability to pay. (Don’t believe me, look up EMTALA- Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor act).  A person can willingly bring themselves to the Hospital and request to be Baker Acted, or they can be brought by ambulance or police. —http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/programs/samh/MentalHealth/laws/histba.pdf
Then there’s the Marchman Act. The Marchman act states that “[it] allow[s] family members to petition the courts for mandatory assessment and treatment of someone who is abusing drugs or alcohol appear to be a danger to themselves or others.” —http://www.marchmanactflorida.com/faq/
These two acts allow the police/hospitals of Florida to help people who are either suicidely inclined or are attempting to hurt someone else. 
I’ve seen these people with my own eyes! They are hurt people, and these laws allow them to treatment that SO MANY OF THEM would not receive other wise.
Suicide leaves a trail of broken hearts behind. Regardless of your opinion on that, it’s a fact.
This has nothing to do with the Government trying to prevent you from taking your life.
This has everything to do with the Government trying to help save your life in the best way it can.
Is it perfect? No. Far from it.
But it’s a step.
If you want to know about any laws about what law enforcement or hospitals can do to help people who are suicide minded, or how to help these people (being “sitters”/care takers) Feel free to search the web or ask your local hospital.

Hello again. || Outofuniform

Hi beautiful followers

It’s been a while.

Stopping by to say hi and “I’M NOT DEAD”

Sorry for being gone for so long

Will be retreating back to the shadows, soon.

just wanted to stop by and say “Hi”, “You’re beautiful/amazing/awesome!” And “Keep your head up, the sun comes up in the morning and it wants to see your beautiful face.”

Have a wonderful Saturday!

~Rachel

Checking in. // Out of Uniform

Good morning, all. 

I’m just stopping by to say “HEY! I’M NOT DEAD!”

I’ve had a rough time over the past few months, and I honestly could not stand being here. It was affecting me too much and I needed out.

I’m not saying I’ll be back anytime soon….I just wanted to let all of you know that I’m still alive and that things are getting a bit better. Maybe sometime in the future, when I have a normal schedule, I’ll come back.

No promises.

Just facts.

Keep your heads up, You’ll make it. :)

Much hugs and Loves,

Rachel Lyse Brook
