Committing suicide is a crime in the US not so that we can punish the depressed, but because, if it weren’t, it would be illegal for the police to enter a home to save someone they suspected was about to kill themselves.
There has to be reasonable belief that a crime is currently being committed or is about to be committed for the police to enter private property.
This had confused me for a long time and this explanation makes so much sense!!
In Canada we have “the right to life” because we’ve punned the charter of human Rights. This means we actually have the right to kill ourselves if that’s what we want.
However, it is illegal to help someone kill themselves. So if there is any reason for police to suspect someone is going to attempt suicide, any reason at all, they need to intervene otherwise it will be considered “helping someone attempt/complete suicide”
