While reading my morning paper this morning I discovered that very early yesterday morning our police shot a man dead. http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/man-shot-dead-by-police/2074772.aspx
And as I read further I discovered that the same man had been shot by police in September of last year in very similar circumstances. And had apparently told police at the time of the first shooting that he wished they had shot him in the head.
While my heart goes out to the poor man's family and friends I am, if anything, more sorry for the police and their family and friends. I don't as it happens have a problem with suicide and to open a new can of worms given our current laws about euthenasia sometimes it is people's only option BUT I don't think you should get other people be they police, train drivers or your family to do the deed for you.
