If someone doesn't want help, don't help him. If these people are beyond repair, let them off themselves and maybe that saves another life or three if this guy ends up going on a shooting rampage anyway. Kill now, avoid Columbine later.

Haha, that bridge is not high enough to really be killed from jumping. My uncles used to jump off of there for fun when I was a kid and we would be visiting friends out there.

Don't save him, let him die if he wants. Better off he's dead, then saved and more angry. He'll end up shooting up a playground.
