Swedish tourist tries to kill himself on the day his visa ran out

Recommended Posts

There is no  evidence from  this  that  he did it because  his visa was about to expire.

 

Nice twist TV

OMG, I knew it has been a challenging situation in Sweden lately because of their asylum policy, but I didn't know it was so bad ...

He could seek asylum in Thailand, based on the asylum chaos in Sweden.

Sorry, I have not one iota of sympathy for people that either try to commit suicide, or, succeed at it.

Have lost too many friends that wanted to live.

Unlike mentally ill Thais, who mustnt pose any risk to tourism. Just another example of Thai xenophobia.

 

Yep!  Just like the Thai driver the other month that killed his wife and then drove like a maniac down the bypass road near Toyota and deliberately (on many video news posts) drove directly into the other lane/turning point and killed another driver.....

It's only bad when it is a crazy foreigner!!   😱

 

Maybe he was unstable, easy to accuse that after attempted suicide, but that would apply to anyone that had successfully killed themselves too.....  Maybe he was only unstable because of fear and uncertainty of the visa renewal changes? maybe he did not have enough money to make ends meet with the new slight changes and was living on the edge of meeting the requirements?

Who knows? - But I see more mentally unstable people on the roads, driving, cycling, wandering, throwing a tantrum and pulling knives, guns, baseball bats (many videos online) when their ego is questioned that are NOT Farang - so i think I know where the bigger health & safety issues lie....!!!! :closedeyes:

Why does he need to drag others into him killing himself? Plenty of tall buildings around.

Next on immigration's list of things to do to make immigrants feel welcomed...3 copies of a certified letter from your required mental health exam before issuing a long term visa extension.  

You forgot to mention if you have to pass or fail that mental health exam to qualify for a long stay in Thailand.

Many European people suffer depression
Many get treated with those poisen pills from doctors
And they can be very dangerous
And you might do crazy things
Including comiting suicide
Alot of old people come to Thailand or Asia but have actually nothing to do
A get depressed
If you never suffered depression you can't judge him
A even going to renew visa can be problem
But I don't know his actual true story
But I have experience with this subject

You think doctors hand out "poison pills"?

This statement discredits your entire post.

I think you are taking what is said too literally, it seems to me that maybe the poster is not a native english speaker, and in fact, some anti-depressants can indeed prove "poisonous" to some people in that they "react" to them in a negative way.

 

Just giving you another viewpoint on that post. 😀

Now on top of the visa problem, he's going to have the hospital bill problem too . No reason to fund him in any way did it to himself .

If you must prove you are sane it means you have been insane in the past which I doubt will increase your chances for an extension ...
