Why Is This a News Story?


This is a very sad example of the breakdown of common sense. You cannot allow a man to spend six entire days atop a 300 foot tower. On day one, you bring him down. I realize that there are equipment concerns and safety concerns, but you cannot allow some idiot to perch himself that high off the ground on private property. The copycats alone are going to be enough to deal with, but to encourage him by feeding him and doing a live stream of his actions? Ridiculous.

They should encase him in some kind of netting, put bags on the ground in case he falls, and stun him into submission. And then jail him and charge him for the expense.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but here's a 180 lb man sitting on aluminum antenna pipes. He might as well fall off the thing--those pieces are not designed to support that kind of weight.
