In America, if you commit murder, you will go to jail. But killing yourself is killing someone, so wouldn't you go to jail for that?


If you kill someone you are taking their life away from themselves, and their family. For doing that you should be put into prison, and have your life "taken" from you. Also prison time is like being grounded, but much worse, it's supposed to keep bad people off the streets, give punishment to the bad people, and let them think about what they've done. That's why we put murders in prison. However, if you kill yourself, yes you are taking someone's life, but that is your own life. If you kill yourself you're responsible for your death. You cant be put in prison for killing yourself because the police aren't going to put a dead body in a jail cell to literary rot. So no if someone commits suicide they won't go to prison because they are dead. Also, don't commit suicide. I hope this answers your question... it's not really a debate, but okay.

You're already dead. How is it even possible to go to jail?
