Male Suicide: When Will we pay attention??????????

In the early morning hours of Jan. 7, 43-year-old Derrick K. Miller walked up to a security guard at the entrance to the San Diego Courthouse, where a family court had recently ruled against him on overdue child support. Clutching court papers in one hand, he drew out a gun with the other. Declaring: “You did this to me,” he fatally shot himself through the skull.

Massachusetts father Steven Cook, prevented from seeing his daughter by a protection order based upon unfounded allegations, committed suicide after he was jailed for calling his four-year-old daughter on the wrong day of the week.

Darrin White, a Canadian father who was stripped of the right to see his children and was about to be jailed after failing to pay a child support award tantamount to twice his take home pay, hung himself. His 14 year-old daughter Ashlee later wrote to her nation’s Prime Minister, saying, “this country’s justice system has robbed me of one of the most precious gifts in my life, my father.”

In India, according to National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) in 2005-06, altogether 52,483 married men committed suicide while the figure for women stood at 28,188.

In fact, a divorced father is ten times more likely to commit suicide than a divorced mother, and three times more likely to commit suicide than a married father.

  1. A very sad state of affairs. Innocent men are being marginalized and are being pushed to suicide.


  2. No one will listen to us.

    We just have to unite and VOTE THEM OUT of their offices.

    Make a pledge to not support any feminist candidate, politician, and organization from now on.

    Convince all you friends, family and colleagues to not vote for these criminals in any election in any country.

  3. Every father in America who is concerned about fathers rights should join free website for fathers.
