On March 3, police officials from the Seoul district's cyber security division arrested Mr. Song (55) and Mr. Lee (38) on charges of attempted murder and assisted suicide.

It was reported last December that the two used a total of four 40-liter nitrogen gas tanks along with tranquilizers in order to create a 'suicide kits' selling them on the internet for 1 million KRW ($867 USD) per set.

They told potential buyers, "After hooking up the nitrogen gas to the tent one has to take a tranquilizer and just go to sleep," explaining the instructions for a painless death.

Not only that, it was revealed last December Mr. Song even attempted to sexually assault a woman in her 20s after introducing her to the product, saying "I am a grim reaper, I hold the power of death."

After further investigation with the victims' acquaintances, police personnel reported there were no actual deaths involved.

It was also revealed that the two culprits stated to the victims that they too were preparing their suicide deaths when in actuality they were preparing to use the money from the sales to establish an illegal gambling site.

There was a site making and selling these kits in the US up until a few years ago when the Feds shut them down.

I think suicide should be legal , I am not saying people should kill themselves , but in my country people who attempt to suicide are actually risking going to jail , so they actually get jail time for trying to kill themselves cuz in my society they believe that one don't own their bodies cuz it's gift from god , so when they try to kill themselves it's as if they try to kill someone else , and they get charged for attempt murder , and rather then jailing them in regular jail they send people who attempt more then once to kill themselves into mental hospital and force them to get treatment and they not allowed to leave until the doctor say so .I think this is wrong , you can't force people to live .

I think suicide that involves others, unless we're talking about assisted suicide in a medical setting, should not be legal. Suicide by jumping on to train tracks or walking into traffic, suicide that traumatises other people directly is not okay. That being said, often suicide is illegal so the right is there to enter a premises without being invited, from my understanding. There are statistics to show how many people regret attempting suicide, and if law enforcement are aware that someone is attempting suicide they've found out from a source, whether a message was posted online. Sometimes - not always but sometimes - this may be subconsciously indicative of will to live. I think it's important that many people choose to kill themselves because, really, they feel like they don't have a choice, like there's no way for things to improve. In a situation where someone has attempted suicide and been "saved" or more appropriately "stopped", they are more likely to receive medical attention.

charging people for their own death , what jerks .

SuperFly_Snuka DZico Saturday, March 4, 2017

DZico SuperFly_Snuka Saturday, March 4, 2017

they can give it to poor people so they wouldn't end up like them !

SuperFly_Snuka DZico Sunday, March 5, 2017

That's not enough money for a poor person to survive off of for the rest of their life

BTSFANRAPMONOPPA Saturday, March 4, 2017

lovelunaa BTSFANRAPMONOPPA Saturday, March 4, 2017
