I have no sympathy for this man. He commited a crime while being, as you say, bi-polar so he knew exactly what he was doing. He knew what he was doing when he jumped off the bridge trying to get away from the police. Using a bi-polar illness in this situation is just an excuse. He knew the cars he was breaking into were not his.<quoted text>
That's nice. That man happened to be my brother. He is Bipolar and probably dead so thank you for your wonderful comment.
I have said it before and I will say it again. The streets are self cleansing. This is just one less person any of us have to worry about breaking into our belongings that we worked hard for. Your brother may have been bi-polar, however, I am willing to bet he was addicted to somesort of narcotics and alcohol. I wish he would of broke into my home or car while I was home. Bet he wouldn't have made it to the bridge to jump off of!!!!
