The big news around here this week is the guy who has climbed up on top of one of those gigantic construction cranes. Seems he’s on the lam from Florida. Wanted for murder. The cops are trying to keep him awake to keep him from falling. They’re “negotiating” with him. He’s threatening to jump. His little stunt has
snarled re-routed traffic, stopped commerce, and halted construction on the building.
It’s probably a good thing I’m not in charge. I’d pull the police and media back and tell the guy to go ahead.
Think about it…we’re spending tons of money to preserve this
loser’s guy’s life. So we can spend tons of money to convict him. So we can spend tons of money feeding him and paying for his endless appeals.
Call me cruel, but we need to send Crocodile Dundee up there, pronto.
“Get on with it, mate!”
