Thread: Solomons Bridge Jumper

  1. #21
    Jumper was wearing khaki pants and a blue dress shirt if I heard the scanner correctly. Someone from base? Hope it wasn't a co-worker. Victim of sequestration?

    Marie, there's not a lot to see on the bridge cam. Just the emergency vehicles and cop car lights at the top of the bridge.
    I know. The first thing I thought about was pulling up he cam, and the I thought "what the hell for" :)


    Thanks.

    I pulled it up on the desktop.

    Unhappy I have to speak up...

    I rarely bother commenting on ignorant posts, but I have to say that I am utterly disgusted by some of the comments in this thread. Instead of cracking jokes and/or complaining about the traffic that's occurred as a result of this person's desperation, why not try practicing some compassion?

    No matter what your views are on suicide and whether or not it's "selfish," that poor victim clearly felt there was no other way out and was in a place much darker than many of us have probably ever felt. Not only was the victim clearly in pain, but now his family and friends are going to hear the news and their lives will be changed forever as well.

    I have grown up in SoMD and typically enjoy living and working here, but I have to say that I have never been more embarrassed or ashamed of where I'm from than I was while reading some of the posts in this thread.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the victim's friends and family and with all of those who felt the need to make cruel comments regarding this tragedy.

    Ugh

    Somebody is going to get a terrible phone call or "visit"

    I wonder how many people saw it

    You don't understand people. Most everyone here on this forum are good people.
    I know where the beef is.

    I feel compassion for everyone who had to wait in traffic.

    Water is flowing to the south per Coast Guard. A lot of sirens can be heard sitting in my living room with windows open. I for one will go to sleep tonight knowing the sinus headache I've had for 3 days could be much worse.

    That should narrow it down

    ... and that's why it's hard to feel compassion for someone who needs a massive audience to demonstrate their desperation
