Why are Police causing massive inconvenience to thousands and not bringing incident to swift end by intervention; presume a jumper or the like?

Almost certainly this will result in more accidents due to overloaded local roads, whilst police never seem to have in mind rapid reopening of this major artery.

Yes, the police are doing this deliberately. Nothing amuses them more than causing traffic chaos - it spices up their boring lives.

(For those who take comments like this literally - and there are some - I am being sarcastic.)

Also the Chinese solution is not an option, I believe.

How do you bring a swift end to someone threatening to jump off a bridge? Push them?

There's the person's family to consider as well. That is someone's dad, mother, brother, sister, son, etc... mellow.gif

Well, it is sad if someone gets to the point where they want to end it all but they should either get on and do it or if they change their mind, leave the scene.
Holding up thousands of people and causing havoc is just plain selfish.
Why can't they do it quietly?

Quite Bill1; the world is full of thoughtless, ignorant people and this thread has exposed at least 3.

What happened to the good old fashion rope and a tree? Or a bottle of pills and whiskey. It's selfish to kill yourself anyway but inconveniencing other people.. no need? People who jump off bridges onto cars below, and people who jump in front of trains, yes they have mental issues as killing yourself goes against all survival instincts, but are selfish nonetheless.

I've thought many a time of getting out quick and not having to put up with life, a nice secluded field with a tree nice views taking your life peacefully! Not this attention seeking bridge rubbish!

Thousands of people are dying everyday. We all do it sooner or later.
If someone wants to go sooner than their natural time then that's their decision.
Most choose to do it with a little grace and privacy choosing not to disrupt the lives of those around them such as the Milners, brave and gentle people.
Standing on a motorway bridge after the traffic has been stopped tells me that whoever it was is just trying to get attention and has no wish to complete the deed.

If it was somebody you knew, would you not want the police to talk them down??? If it was someone that I knew, I would be relieved that the police had prevented it from ending in a death.

Living in Stockcross, I must have seen around four or five people threatening to jump of the A34 bridge where the A4 crosses it.

There are also people with mental health issues, there are also people who are going through a bad patch and are treatable; not to mention the possibility of coercion or other fowl play, and then there are the relatives of the person to consider as well.

Some of the responses on here have saddened me greatly. If we stop for one second to think how desperate that person must be feeling, perhaps the cries of "selfish so-and-so" would be reversed. Surely that person, stood on a bridge, considering leaving whatever their life has brought them, is not able to think straight enough to be considered selfish. Few people would begrudge someone that ill, a couple of hours disruption which they will have no idea they'll have created? Poor, poor person, they deserve pity & understanding, not shouts of "get on with it, you're in my way!"
Call me soft if you like, but I was in Sainsbury's (not Newbury) on Wednesday, & the sweet lady on the til had been saddened by something the previous customer had said (I think she'd been offered condollences). She carried on serving me, tears rolling down her cheeks, but smilling all the while. I silently passed her a tissue & a smile, paid & left, hearing a quiet "Thankyou" as I left. Perhaps some people here think I should have told her to pull herself together & hurry up before my frozen peas defrosted? Don't answer that.

A tissue, you offered a tissue.. Where was the hug? I'd have squished that old lady up in a loving hug, pinched her cheek whilst saying how adorable she was, patted her on the head and off id plod. I do hope it was a used tissue blink.gif

You're quite new on here aren't you?

We welcome people aboard but then hope they are the decent sort i.e. know when to have a laugh and when not.


One of my best friends had to cope with the suicide of his only brother and a cousin of mine was shot by a lad who then took his own life, so I know all about the tragedy of suicide and I doubt I'm the only one on here who does, so please think before you post.

This goes for others who have been less than sympathetic on here too.

Thank you.

I don't want to feed this misanthropic trolling, but I feel obliged to say that I find some of the comments in this thread unacceptable.
