so i'll hear on the news on a not-so-rare basis about another ft carson soldier taking his life. even one where he offed his family first. then, without fanfare, all coverage stops within 24 hrs of each event. yesterday, dude got out of his truck & just ran flat off the bridge onto the northbound lanes of the interstate, where he died of head trauma. no online coverage anymore. no archived coverage of recent suicides either. all i can find is this from almost a month ago: army suicide rates climbing couple to that we have the 2nd highest rate of suicide in the country, but there is no breakout by military/civilian (plus, ft carson is out of colorado springs proper). of all the things that you'd expect to have coverage, for reasons of politicization and for awareness, this seems to be swept under the rug. the only black helicopters i hear are on post, i swear.
