suicide (links to original article)
(Hürriyet Newspaper, 30 March 2011)
The deputy chief of the Zonguldak Security Bureau, Ümit Boztepe, noted
that they've initiated a study at Karaelmas University in connection with the
increase of suicide incidents in the city. Boztepe claimed that 'women's
biological make-up is a bit different. We perceive that, and according to
our research, women attempt suicide in order to attract attention.'
Speaking at the first welcome meeting held at the Zonguldak Municipal
Wedding Bureau, as part of the activities associated with the 10 April
Police Holiday, Boztepe had this to say:
'There's a difference between men's and women's suicide incidents. The
proportion of suicide deaths in women is less than men's. We tried to
determine the reasons for suicide: does it spring from the geographic
location where people live?; is it violence within the family?; male-female
relations? We're trying to figure out what the level of this inclination for
suicide is in young people. We would like you to help us on this subject.
Always let us know about people who may have this inclination.'
