Maybe the County should charge a high "JUMPER" permit fee. That would also help stabilize the pension deficits.

I don't think they found anyone this time, still I agree others have jumped and the barrier was wasted money in my opinion.

I agree, Roger. That $4 million should have been spent some other way--to reduce deaths in traffic, or for mental health care. Every life saved is important, and with limited funds we need to allocate the money more wisely. I realize we can't always shift money from one place to another, but I doubt this barrier was the best use for those funds.

should have been "even one suicide" Saying that because there have been suicides the barrier should not have been built is like saying that because someone broke the speed limit and had an accident there should not be a speed limit. No one in that extensive hearing process promised no suicides, just that it was a deterrence. I think it has been, but there can be no proof.

Disagree strongly. If it has prevented even suicide (and I think, but who knows that it has) then it was worth building. A friend told me that it silenced her thoughts of jumping from there.
