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 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.

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!!!!

They tried to save him but he wouldn't take the ring.
So basically he committed suicide, he got what he wanted?

He decided to be a crook and when he got caught he decided to take his life. Had he lived there would've been a manhunt for this guy and as desperate as he was to get away, there is no telling what he would've done. The only sorrow one should feel from this is that he couldn't be helped earlier in his life.

Unfortunately people feel obligated to make comments on matters they know nothing about. I know the parents and happen to know they are wonderful people. Those that judge have no real life experiences and are obviously uneducated, selfish individuals. Keep your stupid comments to yourself.

Get real, you hypocrite. I'm willing to bet my life you've made many comments and opinions on many issues you may have read or heard about. Everyone does. Everyone has an opinion and when the story is laid out, common sense plays a roll.

The facts are simple, he stole vehicles. He jumped into the water trying to escape or perhaps kill himself. Since he refused to take the flotation ring, I would guess the latter or he simply believed he could make it on his own. He was wrong. The bottom line is, he knew he was wrong or he wouldn't have ran. He risked his own life. It's better he tried to elude on foot than a high speed chase in a vehicle, which puts others in danger. The cliche continues, if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. His being bipolar did not distort is thought process between right and wrong. He is the only one to blame.

BTW, you have no idea who hasn't experienced this or not. If my family member did the same, I would also feel the same. Therefore, get off your holier than thou high chair and wake up. The only people I sympathize with are those who cared for him. But don't try to justify his acts, he knew what he was doing. Those that judge are judging his acts of stupidity and those who defend his acts.

So what if you know the family. There are many wonderful people whose children screw up and turn to drugs and crime. He was a criminal that chose his destiny!!!!!!!! Do I steal or do I get a job? Do I jump off a bridge and die or do I go peacefully? I wish he would of stole from me and I caught him. He wouldn't of made it to that bridge that is for sure!!!!!!! Be careful who you steal from. People are getting tired of criminals and having their hard earned possessions stolen. No one is judging. Just giving opinions and seeing what is in front of them.

Instead of blaming society for thinking the way they do about these criminals and how they meet their demise why not blame yourself and his family for not doing more to help him stay clean and away from crime?

I'm not blaming his bi-polar disorder because that isn't why he jumped. He just had chosen to hangout with the wrong crowd and was going through alot of problems. He just thought he made the right decision by jumping...thought he could get away. He had been through alot before he jumped over the bridge I should know...(we broke-up in January) I had been with him for almost 3 years and I knew him inside and out...the good and the bad. I feel sorry for what his parents, sisters, and neices and nephews have to go through now: Having a loved one die and not able to do anything to have helped him change his ways.

Never said he was crazy, just stupid.

Here's the clicker.....MANY people have a lot going on. MANY people have worse problems. MANY people don't have jobs and need to support their family and guess what... they aren't stealing vehicles. Therefore, we have EVERY right to call him an idiot for stealing. HE HAS NO RIGHT TO STEAL OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY......PERIOD! He thought he could get away, he didn't. It cost his life. Tough s*h*i*t!

Yes we do have a right!!! He is...I mean was stealing from people who worked hard for their belongings! We are getting tired of people helping themselves to OUR stuff!!! He should of worked and earned his own stuff. People have hard times all over and don't turn to crime and jumping off bridges. He didn't have enough sense to know that in most cases jumping off of a bridge into water is like hitting a cement sidewalk. SPLAT!!!!!!!!! OH WELL one less person to steal from society!!!! I said it before and Ill say it again. Commit suicide by jumping off a bridge or commit suicide by stealing from the wrong person who is armed to defend themselves and their property. Regardless of the path he chose...it was bye bye, so long, fair well sionara, adios, now!!!! One less Azz hole to steal from me and you!!!
