While I fully support a person's right to share their thoughts and opinions, I would ask that it be done in a way that is still respectful. This is a wonderful family that is dealing with a lot right now and the thought of them seeing or hearing about these types of comments is really upsetting. In my opinion, there are more appropriate venues for people to speak their minds about suicide, gun control, people doing or not doing their jobs, etc. I'll add that if a person has a strong opinion about something, such as possibly some of the people here do, they might be more effective if shared in a more applicable/appropriate place. While I would love to take the opportunity to give my opinion of the necessity of violating this family's right to some sort of privacy (aka not having to give names or the location of their residence), I don't want to be hypocritical and so will refrain from doing so.

@JustSomethingToConsider, I agree! People sure are quick to judge this entire situation based on just one news report that contains barely any details. Did it "inconvenience" the neighbors? Absolutely! It "inconvenienced" me to see the bomb squad truck in front of my house several years ago along w/a whole SWAT team going into a neighbor's house. However, we dealt with it because I'd rather have that response than endanger another untrained civilian who is "just trying to help". @WaukeshaCitizen while in theory your "friendly neighbor/loved one" approach sounds good when someone is that intent on doing harm, that approach is dangerous. The suicidal person is no longer rational and cannot be talked out of it. And @ Dennis, perhaps you just caught the deputy on a bad day. That's a pretty wide, damaging brush you're painting him with. It is hard to remember that those who love everyone involved are likely reading these comments. Perhaps we could be considerate of them and tone down the nastiness.

A paramilitary approach is not the answer to every one of the incidents.
