Can you believe to build a suicide barrier on the Golden Gate Bridge it will cost $50,000,000.00!? And they are actually still considering it! Let them jump! If they want to die, let them!
An average of 20 people per year jump to their death off the Golden Gate. Since the bridge was built in 1937, approximately 1,500 people have died jumping off the bridge.
I say if they want to deter people from committing suicide they should put up posters of the previous jumpers mangled bodies. The 4 second fall has your body hit the 47 degree water at 88 miles per hour. Most have died on impact. Some survive only to be swept out to sea or eaten by the great whites that frequent the waters there. I still say…
let them jump.
I just heard they have raised the bridge toll once again. Six bucks to cross now. They’re broke. Again. Unbelievable.
