    Default South Kerry coroner links high suicide rates to the ending of corporal punishment

    South Kerry coroner Terence Casey has linked the rise in suicides to the ending of corporal punishment . Mr Casey is calling for an open and frank debate about suicide.

    Is Terence Casey correct, has the ending of corporal punishment brought about a lack of respect for people and authority? Does this also lead to a lack of respect for life in general? In my view he is wide of the mark but it is an interesting argument.

    South Kerry Coroner says end of corporal punishment may contribute to rise in suicides

    Did you hear the one about the Kerry coroner?

    He said people were killing themselves because they weren't getting beaten up anymore.

    No offence, but if you find this to be an interesting argument, then you are one wild dude.

    Don't know about the corporal punishment angle but there has been a shocking rise in suicides explainable by who knows what. I'm sure everybody here has been touched by at least one and that wouldn't have been the case 15 or 20 years ago.

    He is not correct however has the break down in respect for law and order and others has lessened the value of life?

    One of my friends in NATIONAL school hung himself because of the sadistic practices of our teacher. The teacher was from the same parts as that coroner,

    Young people, especially young males are generally far more emotionally expressive than they ever have been in this country. Reintroduce corporal punishment and the cliamate of fear that that would entail and I guarentee that youth suicides would rise and not fall.
