    looks like they are pretty committed to stopping this thing right now, they just need to keep him from going to his right and it will be over

    It looks like one of the policemen has a hook on the front of his uniform.

    yeah i would bet he is prepared to go out the window if there is an opportunity to get hold of the guy, he is probably on a rope right now

    im not pleased with how these FOX news people are handling the coverage

    they are making it seem like a fun event and keep making jokes and giving the guy a nickname and trying to get people to spread it

    reading jokes people are tweeting to them... yeah, that approach would never give anyone the idea that doing this will give them a lot of notoriety and make them "internet famous"...

    Fox announcers are a joke to begin with, they are basically the Walmart or McDonald's version of CNN announcers
    Anything I post is just my own opinion, and my own speculation

    NYPD arrests man who scaled Trump Tower with suction cups



    The 19-year-old from Virginia was arrested and taken to Bellevue Hospital for a psychological evaluation, according to a law enforcement official.

    The NYPD does not plan to release the name of the man who scaled Trump Tower until charges are "dropped or filed," according to Sgt. Brendan Ryan.

    The NYPD had originally said he was 20.

    The man drove from Virginia to Brooklyn on Tuesday, according to two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation.

    He has been medically cleared, and is undergoing a psychological evaluation, according to the sources.

    He is expected to face several state charges from the Manhattan District Attorney's office sometime overnight or Thursday morning, the sources said.
    The New York Police Department is in touch with the man's family, the sources said.

    When I lived in Denver in the 1980s I saw a guy do the exact same thing. I was riding a shuttle bus in Downtown one day and was just about to get off at the next bus stop, when I looked out the window and saw a guy about six stories up on an office tower, climbing on the building. At first I was kind of in shock. I thought maybe he was a window washer or something. I kept wondering what was that guy doing? When I got off the bus it was bugging me to much, so I decided to walk back to where I saw him, and see what was going on. By that time I could hear a lot of sirens. When I got to the building, the police were already blocking off the area, and the fire department was just arriving. For about the next two hours I just stood there in disbelief and watched the guy climb 56 stories all the way to the top. At the time I couldn’t believe that anybody could do that without falling, but he did it. I never thought he would make it to the top.

    Daredevil climbs to night in jail


    Aug. 7, 1987
    DENVER -- A daredevil who climbed a 56-story Republic Plaza Building to celebrate sobriety and win some publicity spent the night in jail and was released Friday on a $300 bond.
    Sobolik wore an adhesive rubber material on his knees and used the grooves for window-washing equipment as handholds on his trip up the Republic Plaza Building. A large American flag dangled from his back pocket.

    Its kinda scary in today's atmosphere. I watched it on CNN at my friends house just by chance. They showed a photo of him taken by the NYPD officers for face recognition. Appeared to be same individual in the video (this was just after they were able to grab him into the window. Praying he just a nut and nothing or anyone else is up to no good. Thanks for the video.
