I am certainly thankful that it was not a firearm that was misused, but still, the misuse of an SUV is most bizarre:
Man decapitates himself in front of deputies, firefighters after domestic dispute in Yorktown
Note the station identifies the SUV. I don't suppose they're trying to make Ford look bad.When deputies and firefighters arrived they found the man inside the white Ford Explorer that had been towing the trailer. The man had apparently set the trailer on fire and refused to leave the SUV.
A Fire Dept. officer noticed a cable attached to a nearby tree and wrapped around the neck of the driver. When deputies tried to get the man to leave the Explorer, he rapidly accelerated the SUV and was pulled from the vehicle and decapitated. The Explorer came to rest approximately 150 yards further down Holmes Blvd.
Must have had trouble getting a head in life.
In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

SUV's should be outlawed.. They're obviously dangerous...

I suppose some have attempted suicide by shotgun; I don't know if decapitation was the result. I certainly don't know of any reporter mentioning the brand name of the shotgun used in such an incident.
I just find it odd that the SUV was identified as a Ford Explorer - like that makes a difference.
