Yeah, that expensive fence works just fine. Glad we all paid for that.

Drunken idiot mayor.

Now we can erect a 50 million dollar monument in his name on top of the fence.

I was there and saw his body...it's sad. I wish we as a society could offer people like this help before it gets this far.

Barely. As a volunteer, I can tell you that help for mental health issues for the uninsured is weak at best. It exists, but the system is overwhelmed and understaffed.

If you knew Richie- you would know that he was not suicidal, AT ALL. Maybe someone should investigate what happened from the time he left work until the time he jumped....what happened in those 4 hours....

And yet our mayor lacks the balls to tell the Feds to shove the FENCE money up their ass and get people some REAL help: funding for the mental health system!

I've known three people who committed suicide so far, in my life - only one of them ever gave even the very slightest hint. Often, those who are serious about it, simply... Do it. It's horrific. If you're a friend of his, I recommend FFOS - it's a yahoo group for survivors.
