Aaron Swartz is now deceased because he suffered from Severe Depression.While it may seem that he could have chosen to do something other than what he did,the reality is that Mr.Swartz had a disease that proved fatal.I feel that it is extremely unfortunate that his friends and family have decided to publicly state that circumstances,situations or people "caused" Aaron Swartz to commit suicide.Suicide is a totally abnormal response which is something no person could or would do unless they were very ill.The disease is what caused the fatal outcome in this case,and saying the US Attorney "made" Aaron Swartz commit suicide is about the same as calling the man a coward,and it is known he was not one.Mr.Swartz was a great man and a Patriot.He will be very much missed,but he should not be blamed or villified for dying at a young age from a severe illness.
