    Funny Facebook Fails

    Actually, we had a guy some years back who wanted to jump off the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. He was there for many many hours. Totally gridlocked the DC highways. The police changed their procedures for handling such a situation after that. Now I think they just shoot the son of a bitch and get it over with.

    Suicide, the ultimate passive aggressive act.
    Reminds me of the seen in Smoky and the Bandit, where the sheriff, stalled by a funeral precession says, “I wish they would have cremated the somebitch.”

    Although suicide is nothing to really joke about I learned that those who crave attention won't do the actual act 80% of the time. Yes it is an inconvenience but it's best to get a TRAINED consoler on scene who can defuse the situation. This stuff is best left to the professionals who can handle it not, ordinary ppl who are running late to a hot date.

    I find it hard to believe any police department will simply shoot a suicidal person to get solve the problem for them. That brings up a multitude of ethical questions that in the end will still mean someones going to jail/prison.

    go stand on a bridge over the Potomac and see what happens. I doubt the policevwill even get there before you've been popped off. ... Shouldnt have been standing out there...might slip and fall.

    If you need attention that bad, go whine on RealJock. God knows the rest of the world does. ... icon_rolleyes.gif

    *sniff, sniff* "My bf turned out the light last night before saying "good night." I think he doesn't love me anymore. Is it over?"

    Yes, bitch. Now roll over and go to sleep.
