Man in tree shut down downtown Seattle streets
It looks like this might not end good. The police seem to have given up trying to talk to him.
He's still up there...
I don’t think he is going anywhere soon. People like him have no place to go.
I’m kind of surprised he hasn’t fallen out of the tree yet. If he keeps standing on those branches, it’s just a matter of time until one breaks, and he goes falling to the ground.
I feel horrible for this guy. I hope they have mental health pros there.
Me too. He must be cold up there and his tush must be quite sore. Sure hope he will be rescued soon.
There is a crane now by him.
He is coming down.
Now he is going back up.
When he does come down he'll have 60 days of shelter under psychiatrist care ... is that right?
Poor guy. At least LE realizes he is mental so they don't shoot him down!
What is that thing he is trying to knock out of the tree?
Well, whatever he was, he got it out!
I am shocked and extremely dismayed that this mentally ill person has been made a joke of on the internet, Twitter accounts and all.
I sat in a live chat (elsewhere) for hours today, and finally had to close it down.
He is obviously sick, but ppl seem to think this is some fun spectacle for their entertainment.
I'm still watching, here:
What if this was your son, your brother, cousin friend or whatever.
He was just referred to as "mental" here, so... still room for improvement, I guess.
(google "people first language" for more information)
I agree with you. We haven't come as far as we would like to think.
Who is flying that drone? I'm afraid it's going to startle the poor guy! I think that's a REALLY bad idea!
Someone is flying a drone by the tree now. I am sure that won't agitate him more.
