    Man commits suicide in library of San Jose State University



    The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. public library at San Jose State University was shut down for the day after a person died from an apparent six-story fall inside the building’s atrium back in 2016.

    I'm surprised I don't remember this. It would certainly have made national news. Committing this act in a library named after an African-American may have been his way of making a racist statement. Can you imagine how CROWDED this library would have been on the day it reopened? Everyone wanting to see firsthand the spot where the body went SPLAT.

    How do they know it was suicide? Did he leave a note? Maybe it was a case of vertigo from looking down at the drop.

    They won't have liked that - libraries are meant to be QUIET places.
    If you're kissing Death make sure you've got a blue protruding tongue.

    And spattering blood on the books - that's a serious no-no.
