In this week’s 2-part episode, the UPC team is bringing you more Stalker Questions! Lou asked about live-streamed suicide and the motive behind ending one’s life on public platforms, as well as the ramifications for those who encourage suicide on social media. We touch on some of the legal and social challenges associated with addressing live-streamed suicide, and who should be held responsible.
