I grieve with all those whom have lost someone on this horrific German Airbus crash, but I must say that the story behind this crash doesn’t wash with me.
Generally speaking, someone considering suicide is for many reasons, but most of them are related to that person feeling inadequate, perhaps holding trauma or secrets from the past, losing their jobs or financial insolvency, break-ups, lack of purpose or reason to live, being terminally ill. The bottom line is that any person contemplating suicide feels they have no reason to live or anyone to live for.
In all of the cases above, I have never heard from any of my clients they wanted to take others with them. The irony of a suicidal person in most cases (always exceptions) is that they are very conscientious people, that care about others so they lack the capacity towards hatred of others even to those that hurt them, generally speaking. I am writing in very loose and general terms because our world has changed so much in the last 20 years, that there are no longer any set rules in psychology.
Of course each person varies in their reason for suicide, they differ in the way they handle grief or losses, how they deal with sadness, worthlessness, physical pain etc, but it’s very rare that a person contemplating suicide will want to harm others in such a way to cause death to them.
The authorities claim, along with the Airline management that all pilots regularly receive and are obligated to be tested for physical and psychological reasons. This co-pilot has over 600 hours of flight time, meaning someone has spent those 600 hours in total with him as he is not able to fly or be alone in the flight cabin until he completes a certain number of hours, so you would think that someone would have noticed something?
It’s one thing to know your fellow worker waitress might have emotional issues and another when you are piloting a plane full of people. My point is that in a position such as a pilot and being responsible for many lives, your co-pilot or any other co-worker is not going to turn a blind eye if they notice a problem, after all their own life is at stake.
There is also no way for them to know that maybe a third person sneeked into the flight cabin and stuck a gun to this man’s head. Silence doesn’t mean he was alone. The authorities were able to do a background check on this co-pilot within 24 hours and determine that he is not involved in any terrorist group? Because he is not showing up anywhere doesn’t mean that he is not.
I can with almost certainty claim that a person undergoing a suicide mission is not going to kill 100’s of people along for the ride unless they have a grievance with someone or the airline company itself, but when was the last time you heard about someone committing suicide and taking 100’s of people to death with them?
We are very conscientious (I attempted suicide 2 times). We think about our loved ones and people we would leave behind and how they would deal with us being gone. We are about people and it’s almost like we care too much and want to die because we feel we may be letting someone down or can’t live with guilt, the last thing we want is anyone else to get hurt.
I don’t know what happened in that cabin, but this was not a suicide unless and maybe if this person had a vendetta against someone in the plane or company, but even that is a pretty rare event because if this co-pilot was angry or had suicidal thoughts, someone would have noticed this.
This is not a typing job where you can hit the “return” key and correct your typing mistake, this is a job where one wrong switch or wrong button can kill many people, it’s a highly stressful job no doubt, but someone who is that low and considering suicide cannot function in that kind of environment, it would show.
I can only guess the company is hiding something. The show is grand, the performance too glamorous. I have never seen so much “emotional”, reporting coverage used for a plane crash, this one is extraordinarily overly dramatized, too perfect which tells me there is something else going on, but in my humble opinion with experience in this field, people do not commit suicide and take hundreds of lives with them unless they have some religious or political agenda and even in that case, they leave a message behind for people to know.
I have not yet started to read what the alternative media is saying about this horrific event, but french Prime Minister Hollande first announced the plane crash and already knew there were no survivors, I felt something wasn’t right. Later on, he was criticized for making that announcement as the authorities that control air traffic are the ones that have to make the first announcement. Hollande made the announcement 11 minutes after the crash, how did he know there were no survivors?
Many assumptions are being made, one of them being the co-pilot alone did this, it is entirely possible someone could have slipped into the flight cabin and forced the co-pilot to do as told, his silence in response to the pilot banging on the door and begging him to open it isn’t proof he was alone. It’s only proof someone was in there or that somebody was breathing.
There is a lot more to this horrific event, my guess is that it was a diversion for something else going on, but co-pilots and pilots do not suicide passengers, and people do not kill others when they want to die unless they have some kind of agenda and then it’s not suicide anymore; it’s pre-meditated murder killing oneself after the fact knowing they will either get killed or will spend the rest of their lives in prison.
Think about it folks. This man flew over 600 hours with another pilot, do you honestly believe that not one pilot would have noticed he had some problems? You can’t know they are having suicidal thoughts but in order to have them you are generally deeply disturbed about why and that’s almost impossible to hide working one on one.
If you’re working with more people then it would be hard to notice, but sitting with someone alone for hours, you would notice something.
This story is not over yet, but we may never know what really happened in that flight cabin, silence and breathing do not prove anything, it only proves someone was in there, a person going into such a dramatic suicide drop to crash an airplane knowing their life is about to end along with hundreds of others do not “breathe” normally. A psychopath may be calm, but they rarely commit suicide because they are without a conscience and feel dominant and arrogant so they generally don’t fall like that.
A normal person does not drop towards the mountains with a plane full of people breathing normally, so things do not add up and if their story is true, what does it say about their testing system? This co-pilot lived in a small town, everyone knew everyone, burn out and stress or depression usually do not cause someone to willingly kill so many people. There are many ways to commit suicide, he could have done this in the cargo space, at home or drop over a cliff or whatever, but I don’t buy this version for one minute.
