The bystanders have absolutely no manners or respect; wondering what they do with the photographs they all took with their smart phones. Absolutely disgusting and despicable! 

I'm unclear what kind of respect for the body is required in the event of a very public suicide. Would respect include limiting speculation and reserving judgments without fact on a public forum?

You both need to read the article again. Maybe you missed it the 1st time or forgot what you read. This quote might help: "A vendor near the site on the sixth floor said she noticed a foreigner trying to climb over the barrier, but had let go by the time she got to him."

If the posts were made after reading the OP, neither poster would have been able to read that information. It was not given until a later post.

I don't see it as disrespect, after all, the guy is dead, he doesn't care, but rather what is the motivation that compels people to photograph such a horrific event, and it's not only suicides, Thais have a morbid fascination with photographing horrific accidents as well.

if a person is determined to kill themselves for what ever reason whether it be jumping off a Condo Mall or what ever building  there is not much one can do 

they have made  their mind up to go through with it 

don't want to seen as  Pessimistic  but there will no doubt be more doing the same  in the future 

it seems to be a more popular option nowadays to jump from the high floor of a shopping mall and give people entertainment , its a good job there is no cafe at bottom serving food it might put them off their food . seen a few stories now on shopping mall jumps they trying to do a cartwheel and tuck before hitting the hard concrete floor , the usual thing before shopping mall jumps was to jump off a high rise condo and usually it was at 2.30 am - 5 am when the security guard usually hears a loud thump with pigeons flying everywhere , then he usually finds a big lump on the floor in the darkness now its in broad daylight in a shopping mall they are getting more daring just shows you if your on the ground floor keep looking up if one of those guys lands on you it could be curtains for you also , these are selfish people to do it so openly if a child had been wandering around on the ground floor and seen it , this could have been really upsetting for the child , whats wrong with the old painless method of taking an overdose on your bed ?

Personally, I think everyone is fascinated by mortality, some cultures are just less reserved in their indulgence of the fascination.

There are some sick puppies in this world who get off taking these photo's

Look at the one for this article, some clown had to draw in an over size arrow pointing to the body

So, it just gave the crowd something to talk about when they got home and show the pics to prove it.

Yup. People photo document the most banal aspects of their lives online these days, It only stands to reason something like a corpse in a shopping mall would be considered worthy of sharing.

OK, it maybe very sad that someone has taken there own life. But totally selfish and very lucky

he did not take someone with him. can you imagine if a child was walking to the escalator and he lands on them.

How often does that happen, a suicide jumper actually landing on someone?
