Suicidal teen fined for causing public nuisance on motorway bridge contemplating jumping

What the heck is all this about ?

A young lady has lost her mum, Gran and uncle in a short space of time
She is having desperate mental health troubles , and finds herself a top a motorway bridge looking down , not for the first time. Life is too much to take for her

So what's the answer - coach her down, arrest her, charge her, convict her and fine her for causing a public nuisance by causing traffic delays and using police time

I thought we were supposed to be learning more about mental health and being more understanding ? Well that's not quite reached the judicial system just yet
I hope and prey she comes out of her difficulties the right end rather than the wrong end

The word heartless doesnt even come close. I hope those who call the shots never hit rock bottom and what a way forward in removing the stigma of mental health...youre a public nuisance, heres a fine.

I read this and I was completely lost for words. There is no public interest in a prosecution like this.

The difficulty is from memory its a strict liability offence, meaning theres no requirement to prove any intention (which could have been lacking due to her mental health) - so basically the only defence is it wasnt me. So from the point of view of those advising the young lady, it has to be a guilty plea.

Whoever made the decision to bring that case should hang their head in shame. I also think the Magistrates should have sent a message in their sentence that it wasnt in the public interest, rather than rebuking her, fining her and hammering her with a 12 month community order.

Unbelievable that shes not been shown compassion given support
But some heinous crimes its a slap n the wrist and off you go to do it again
Every life is a precious gift and we should all have compassion for those who feel they just cant see the end of that long long lonely dark
Tunnel
Too many of our young people who desperately need support are slipping through the net
We can all do something say something listen to something
Stand by to pick up the pieces if need be
