Appears to be a suicide.

RIP.

 

Full-time Police NSman, 23, dies from gunshot wound to his head

https://www.todayonl...s-gunshot-wound

 

SINGAPORE — A full-time Police National Serviceman was found with a gunshot wound to his head at the Protective Security Command on Ulu Pandan Road, the police said in a statement on Sunday (Sept 9).

Police said the 23-year-old serviceman had reported for duty at 8am on Monday (Sept 3) and had drawn his service revolver from the armoury.

He was later found with a gunshot wound to his head at 3.20pm, with his service revolver beside him.

He was taken unconscious to the National University Hospital and succumbed to his injuries on Sunday.

Preliminary investigations by the Criminal Investigation Department revealed that he was heard arguing on the phone shortly before he was found with the gunshot wound.

The police have classified the case as an unnatural death, and the circumstances relating to it are being investigated. No foul play is suspected.

My guess is because of break up.

 

Young people needs to learn to treasure life more.

 

May he rest in peace.

90% of suicide is caused by a mental illness, primarily depression. Depression is a medical condition that requires medication and medical treatment, not something you can will yourself out of. There may be stress, love lost etc, but once there is depression, the person needs to be medically treated.

Breaks your heart to hear of lives lost to suicide. Wish there was something that can be done to prevent more of this but unfortunately sometimes even their loved ones don’t know what these people going thru. Really sad 😔

It's not stated in the article what the reason is.

 

But sometimes people have depression due to family, money or bfgf matters. If the ns commander doesn't give them the required personal time to sort out these issues, then yes. I'd still say it is ns related.

The older generations are like cockroach, the younger generations are like butterfly.

Older generations were "influence" to be tough and hardworking in order to survive.

Younger generations are "influence" to a be a "show" person. They are sensitive on how others see them.

Different upbringing. Hence the "value" of living are different.

It seems like a given that one generation will diss the next one, for something or the other. Maybe it is the fashionable thing to do, I don't know.

 

To put another perspective on things, when I was young jumping from HDB flats was much more common than now. So what does that say about the toughness of the older generation vs. the new?

When I think back to when I was in my 20s, life was full of possibilities, being young, free and single. Of course there were setbacks, but don't think anything could put me down seriously. Young, free and single FTW. Can't imagine how anyone of that age could be so depressed as to take own life, except if stricken by some terminal illness or permanent disability.

 

But of course, the youth need to reach middle and old age, and experience its attendant troubles and responsibilities, before they can fully appreciate to treasure their freer, younger years, unfortunately ...

Am i mistaken or are police more likely to have suicides?

In terms of firearms, surely the army have better access.. go range, field firing, live firing, Guard duty etc.. but soldiers have lower suicide rate?
But i don't have actual statistics la.. 🙄

Army no chance of being alone with riffle. During training, riffles carries no bullets except on guard duty or at range. Even so at range, you cannot carry your riffle around... :wacko:

 

In army, always assigned a buddy when on guard duty and upon returning, must surrender to the guard room. Police carried theirs by themselves most of the time.   [sweatdrop]
