Why Celebrate Suicide

I know it sounds insensitive, but I’m not celebrating suicide anymore. Obviously, these artists are seeking after help. Sometimes the public/industry is so caught up with the status of celebrities that they miss the fact that some of these artists are indeed suicidal. Then, when these artist actually commit suicide, mainstream likes to dismiss the fact that these individuals really need help. They’ll do a stupid vigil at the celebrity’s star, play their music, or their films/series. We’ve seen/heard them already. Let’s get deeper into the problem. Clearly, these artists feel as if no one is there to support them in their hardship. What could we do to stop these suicides?

1)We should regard these artist as regular human beings, the only difference is that they entertain us.

2) We need to see the big picture. Is the public exciting more suicides for celebrities? Is the public so consumed with mainstream’s distractive agenda about what’s really going on? 

3) We need to understand that we are indeed celebrating the suicide of these artists. If these artists died any other way, then it’s understandable to pay remembrance.

It’s quite disturbing to have to wonder if you’re amongst a sexual predator while using one of the restrooms at Los Angeles City College, after witnessing one alleged sexual predator who was detained today on campus for that very reason.

Edward Salm, a white male in his 50’s, bald, and heavy-built was detained inside the FH building on the 3rd floor for an alleged indecent exposure charge. An anonymous student placed in a report with LACC Sheriff Department around 1:30pm.

The student who unfortunately had to cross paths with the alleged suspect, witnessed Salm “moaning and using phrases to express his pleasure.” The student continues telling LACC Sheriff, “he stood in front of my stall and began ‘jerking-off’. He left my stall, then went to the urinal and started masturbating. He turned around to look at me.”

LACC Sheriff Department storms into the restroom 5-10 minutes after the report and confronts the alleged suspect. Salm had on a pair of red shorts, a grey shirt, and a pair of dark colored shoes. He came out of the restroom handcuffed. Salm was then escorted out of the FH building. The student was escorted out by Sheriff officials as well, following after Salm.

The student was adamant about pressing charges and went about the procedures. However, the student was informed by LACC Sheriff that it would have to be a citizen’s arrest because the alleged suspect denied all charges. Therefore, the case would be considered as “hearsay” and perhaps thrown out.

Even though the alleged suspect denied the allegation, Edward Salm said, “sorry if I did anything to offend him,” according to LACC Sheriff Deputy Wang. However, that wasn’t enough proof for an actual arrest. Yet, nobody has to be a scholar to know that that is a form of guilt.
This information leaves the student contemplating whether or not to continue the process. Then after meditating on the issue, the student decided to drop the charges. However if Edward Salm “is found back on school campus, he will be arrested for trespassing,” according to Deputy Wang.

If you were to encounter a similar incident, or you may perhaps know someone with a similar story, contact the LACC Sheriff’s Department at (323) 662-5276.
