ΠΑΤΕΡΑΣ ΑΥΤΟΚΤΟΝΗΣΕ


Ο Thomas Ball, αυτοκτόνησε επειδή ήταν αδύνατο να καλύψει τη διατροφή των παιδιών του…

Αφού έγραψε 15 σελίδες αναλύοντας το πώς Έχασε τα παιδιά του, αυτοκτόνησε μπροστά στην πόρτα του δικαστηρίου, για να μην πάει φυλακή… γιατί καταυτόν τον τρόπο δεν θα τα έβλεπε!!
Για ψυχολογικούς λόγους προς τους Πατέρες που περνούν τον ίδιο Γολγοθά, δεν ανακοινώνεται το κείμενο που έγραψε ο
Τόμας… ενώ η συμβουλή (και η δική μου) είναι να μην χάσουμε το κουράγιο… από: George Karavidas (Psychologist-Writer, Life Long Martial Artist)

Thomas Ball, a troubled New England divorced father, took his own life in front of the door of the courthouse in Keene, New Hampshire on Wednesday. His suicide apparently was precipitated by Ball believing he would soon be jailed for being behind on a child support obligation he says he was unable to meet.


Ball left a lengthy narrative of his experiences with the court that detailed how he lost his children. It revealed a deeply troubled individual who nevertheless understood clearly the workings of family courts. Fathers and Families’ Board Chairman Ned Holstein, M.D. said:

The callous and disrespectful treatment of so many fathers by the family courts means that tragedies like this one are sure to befall the most fragile among them.

In his narrative, Thomas Ball’s pain and frustration are palpable. Anyone going through the loss of his children would understand his feelings. But that does not justify the violence Ball advocates in paragraphs 73-78 of his 15 page final statement. We sympathize with Ball's ordeal in family court; we feel for his loss. We will never condone exhortations to violence.

We have been in touch with various media outlets concerning Ball's suicide and are educating reporters on the myriad injustices of the family court system.

We do not want to encourage "copycat" suicides or desperate actions--if you or someone you love feels suicidal, please have them contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is a free, 24-hour hotline available to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/
