Stickam Broadcasts Girl’s Suicide Live

mextli-stickam-suicide.jpg

A girl has leapt to her death live on video streaming site Stickam, disappearing off her balcony and into the night sky in a broadcast which later showed police arriving and exchanging off-colour remarks…

The girl, known as “mextli,” was apparently of Okinawan extraction and living in Aichi prefecture. She had a history of “cutting” and similar extreme behaviour, also broadcast live.

For whatever reasons she decided to kill herself by leaping from her fourth storey residence, which she broadcast live to the world.

The actual scene of the girl leaping from the balcony and to her doom, her screaming clearly audible, is perhaps best left to the imagination (the footage and her profile soon disappeared). She apparently lingered for some time after the fall, heavily injured.

However, the scene of police and ambulance personnel arriving is visible below – one of the officers arriving at the scene makes a tasteless remark about going to see her in hospital if she is cute, unaware that he was being broadcast to the world…

The words remaining on her feed are “Well, let’s play the game of life and death.”

The morbid facts of the case were circulating in threads on 2ch within mere minutes of the incident.

Stickam has previously attracted notoriety for its management connections to adult sites, and in one particularly sordid episode a privileged user residing in Arizona actually raped a woman he had drugged live on the service – he was later arrested.

Coming so soon after the furore over a girl who mutilated herself live on NicoNico Douga, it does indeed seem that absolutely anything can be seen on live streaming sites…

    Suicide is the worst way to end your life. What's even worse are people rummaging through your stuff once you've removed yourself from existence. I wouldn't wanna die knowing someone will find my stash of porn and other illegal stuff I collected in my lifetime!

    There are 6 Billion people in this planet. Right now, thousands out there in Africa is dying of hunger. Doesn't really make a much of a difference if she dies. Lol. She's not even someone that important of a person. Just a bloody attention seeker who wants the spotlight even at her death. Just another of the fucking emo out there. Anyways, those who take lives or throw away their own deserves the least of out pity.

    Ignoring air resistance, the terminal velocity when she reaches the ground would be about 40-45km/hr(or 25-28mph), which is actually quite survivable. It's more like a self-torturing act(read: being emo) than a genuine suicide.

    Killing yourself is stupid and selfish. Those people only think of their pain and their problems but don't think of the trouble this will cause to everybody, and the pain they'll cause to the people that love them.

    I wouldn't mind dying since life is pretty useless and I've been depressed for years but I know that suicide is a pretty bad option. If I killed myself I would only make more people depressed. The only thing that I may kill myself over is if I had to do prison for something major, and I don't think this will ever happen.

    I knew this girl, guys. (I'm not trolling)

    I'm seriously hurt by this. You all don't understand how intelligent she was... she spoke English and was a fantastic artist. Her mind just ... she could not handle the world. She was depressed.

    This world that we are experiencing right now... sometimes its too much for those that think above most. You all don't realize the situation you are all in... consciousness, being alive, competing for food and sex....lol

    I'm so hurt by this. I need to go now, so that I may remain sane

    How many of you have lost a friend? Rest in peace, sweety... if only I could have helped...

    sometimes you can help people and talk them out of it, sometimes, you can't. if they really wanted to die, they wouldn't reach out to anyone. attention or otherwise, it's all null and void now. the world will go keep turning except for the ones who knew her personally and those that loved her for who she was. it may be harsh but it's the truth.

    poeple fail to save those they wish they could have all the time. you can't go back and change it. you can't go back and stop yourself if you egged them on or didnt realize it. time and time again, it's been proven that society as a whole are insensitive unless the situation is dead in their faces, even if they see it coming a mile away. attention or otherwise, that proves how many people will take soemthing from her suicide

    Mental health professionals in Japan have long known that the reason for the unnecessarily high suicide rate in Japan is due to unemployment, bankruptcies, and the increasing levels of stress on businessmen and other salaried workers who have suffered enormous hardship in Japan since the fallout of the bursting of the stock market bubble here that peaked around 1997. Until that year Japan had annual suicide of rate figures between 22,000 and 24,000 each year. Following the bursting of the stock market and the long term economic downturn that has followed here since the suicide rate in 1998 increased by around 35% and since 1998 the number of people killing themselves each year in Japan has consistently remained well over 30,000 each and every year to the present day.

    The current worldwide recession is of course impacting Japan too, so unless the new administration initiates very proactive and well funded local and nationwide suicide prevention programs and other mental health care initiatives, including tackling the widespread problem of clinical depression suffered by so many of the general population, it is very difficult to foresee the previous government's stated target to reduce the suicide rate to around 23,000 by the year 2016 as being achievable. On the contrary the numbers, and the human suffering and the depression and misery that the people who become part of these numbers, have to endure may well stay at the current levels that have persistently been the case here for the last ten years. It could even get worse unless even more is done to prevent this terrible loss of life.

    During these last ten years of these relentlessly high annual suicide rate numbers the English media seems in the main to have done little more than have someone goes through the files and do a story on the so-called suicide forest or internet suicide clubs and copycat suicides (whether cheap heating fuel like charcoal briquettes or even cheaper household cleaning chemicals) and mirrors at stations, and now lights at stations, without focusing on the bigger picture and need for effective action and solutions.

    Economic hardship, bankruptcies and unemployment have been the main cause of suicide in Japan over the last 10 years, as the well detailed reports behind the suicide rate numbers that have been issued every year until now by the National Police Agency in Japan show only to clearly if any journalist is prepared to learn Japanese or get a bilingual researcher to do the research to get to the real heart of the tragic story of the long term and unnecessarily high suicide rate problem in Japan.

    I would also like to suggest that as many Japanese people have very high reading skills in English that any articles dealing with suicide in Japan could usefully provide contact details for hotlines and support services for people who are depressed and feeling suicidal.

    Useful telephone numbers and links for Japanese residents of Japan who speak Japanese and are feeling depressed or suicidal:

    I was refering to a good anime with tons of murders, broadcasted suicides, hallucinations and girls.... plenty!

    If you know what I am talking about then try comparing the anime with this event.... apparently even if the setting is off (the anime's plot happened in Shibuya) it really disturbingly reminds me of that....

    What's so bad about the cop saying he'd visit her in the hospital if she was cute? If she had survived, she would've finally had someone to talk to about her problems rather than jump off buildings.

    You all probably would've said something similar anyway.

    I got so busy ranting that I forgot I was thinking of pointing this out. You can survive a fall from higher, but If she fell on her head and on concrete...

    Plus, if the officer wanted to go to the hospital to see if she was hot, doesn't that mean she survived?
    I doubt he'd want to check up on a corpse and they keep those in the morgue anyway...

    It is being reported as "suicide" and not "attempted suicide," but there is no clear confirmation she is dead. Police did find her will/note, but she apparently lingered screaming, so survival is not impossible.

    Good riddance.

    Suicides should be encouraged to solve the problem of overpopulation.

    If there are talentless, useless inbred retards hanging around and being not satisfied being alive, there are also talented kids in orphanages and children's homes who just wait for the opportunity to live.

    No reason to keep such ungrateful bastards around.

    Your theory fails, because people with higher education are known to be far more prone to suicide than people with high school or lower.

    And suicide doesn't help overpopulation one bit. Compare the number of suicides to the number of births and you will see how statistically insignificant it is.
