To be honest, it's likely they planned to run a story like this and they were just waiting for their first opportunity, however shaky the story might be.
Why? The PTB WANT people to be in fear. You know why? A fearful populace cannot see what is really occurring. The PTB doesn't want people to see what is REALLY occurring. It's a threat to them and their control over the masses.edit on 19-5-2012 by SpeakerofTruth because: (no reason given)

Sad, but...I've always had a problem with this:
So the (supposed) end of the world is coming and - you off yourself? What the hell kind of sense does that make? Yeah, the world sucks, but go buy yourself a cheeseburger and feel better about things. And if you're only thinking about killing yourself because the end of the world's coming - why not just wait?
I think this story is wrong, and she probably just did it - tragically - because the world got her down. The other argument never makes any sense to me, since THEN doesn't really have a whole lot to do with NOW. Now, people who are about to go to prison, I can understand killing themselves. But someone reading about the end of the world? Well NEWS FLASH - you're going to die someday anyway, and eventually the entire universe will die a heat death.
I guess under that same reasoning, we might as well ALL go off ourselves now.

I blame her parents for giving her access to the internet.
She should have turned to Yeshua and not Buddha, she wouldn't have been afraid go on living despite the world sliding into hell in a handbasket. She would also know that the world isn't ending this year or anytime soon for that matter.
She will face judgement for taking her own life but that does not mean she will go to hell, she didn't understand what she was doing or she wouldn't have done it. She despaired, and there is no sin in despairing. This is why Hope is needed in the world, without hope alot of people would be killing themselves right now. Godbless the despairing and brokenhearted, may he draw them close to him and never let them go.edit on 19-5-2012 by lonewolf19792000 because: (no reason given)
