A teenager actually stabbed himself to death on stage after  singing at an open mic night. 

Kipp Rusty Walker, 19 sang a song he called "Sorry for the Mess".  When he finished singing he pulled out a knife and began stabbing himself over and over.

The crowd (15-20 people) watched in confusion, at first thinking it was part of the performance.  This happened at a coffee house in Oregon.  I think it is a safe guess that some of the people there actually came in just to get coffee, now they had to see this! WTF?

Once blood was shed, the crowd realized what was actually happening and was not part of an act.

Walker was rushed to the hospital, where he eventually died due to the stab wounds.

An unidentified friend told Oregon News Channel 21 that this  was not a surprise to him.  He said, quote:

"Ive been preparing for this for a while"  He goes on to say, "It was almost like he wanted to prove a point, like there's no point in being scared of death because it's going to happen anyway".

I can even begin to imagine being there.  Shame on him for forcing people to bare witness to such a horrible thing.  Very selfish thing to do.
