"Marin CHP officer Chris Rardin said that the boy could face criminal charges in the case"


Can we push the police off next?

He didn't jump from the center. Surviving from the center is an incredible longshot. You've spent time in the Bay Area, T, you know the survival rate for this jump.

The report said he jumped from outside the towers, which is 220 ft. That's incredible. What a nut.

At least this might convince the DOT to extend the netting all the way across, lol. Though I hope they don't put the chainlink and razor-wire all the way across. That would just be too Escape from New York for me.

Every time I've ever walked or driven across the golden gate I've kept my eye out for a jumper. Never seen one, though.
