Johnny thought about killing himself because of his parents.
Dallas committed suicide by robbing a grocery store after Johnny died.
Dallas ran out of the hospital.
Characters with the Problem:
How it could have been solved:
Dallas: could have been prevented by being told that he still has his friends and his gang

If they end their lives early they are not thinking about who truly loves them such as their family.
They are wanted by others and no one should put them down.
