I feel bad for all the people tied up in traffic due to this protester yesterday but like the previous commenter said, our public officials are so bad, something like this was bound to happen.
The gentlemen who went on the ledge perhaps was emboldened by the Occupy protests going on downtown at the Civic Center. Or maybe he just got sick of all the B.S. that is going on with Jan Goldsmith sending letters out to close collectives. In my opinion, the 163 ledge stunt was an overt act of a freedom fighter making a sincere statement about the dire situation our city is in when just about every politician is dirty, corrupt, beholden to others, or on the take. Like Bonnie Dumanis.
The lucky few who have jobs still and were held up or late to pick up their kids--I apologize profusely but sometimes YOU JUST HAVE TO TAKE A STAND! This righteous man may now be in a 72 hour psych lockup now but I think his bravado and bravery should be applauded. He is a local HERO to me!
