He did not land on freeway. Parking structure isnt close enough to freeway and article says he was hanging from a ledge.

It has been a full five hours since this story was first reported. Are there not any doubts as of yet that something about this story is being covered up? If it was a suicide, he wouldn't have been hanging on to the ledge by his fingertips. That's not how suicides are commited. Obviously, someone was stepping on his knuckles in order to make him release his grip. And who goes on top of the roof like that unless there forced too? This smells like a mob hit -- either union or political -- and as per usual the BART system was likely used as a getaway devise.

Steve you are out of line. My prayers go out to the friends and family that will miss the man who died.

on May 31, 2012 at 1:26 pm you think everything is a scam by the democrats, obama, unions or now it's the mob. You need psychiatric help ASAP.

Three cheers for Steve. There has been too much monkey business going on over the past several weeks. Shootings, stuffings, hangings, and now death leaps. Somebody is behind all this, and when we find out who, it may be because someone in this community had the courage to stand up against the liberals and call it the way he sees it.

I think he was trying for the freeway and came up a little short.

Steve, why don't show us how it's done? Set a date, time, location; I'd wager some of us would come to watch!

I see the liberal troll Dave S., alias Golem, is board and needs to conjure up images of violence in order to satisfy the liberal Marxist Stalinesque need for gratitudinous violence. Meanwhile, our liberal elite newspaper does nothing but give puppeted reports from the union cops who sit on there hands while Pleasanton is flooded over with wanten union linked crime. I'd recommend bringing the FBI in, but under our great leaders Barack Hussien Obama and Eric the Lib Holder, the FBI is the most corrupt law enforcement agency in the history of our country. (Columbian prostitutes anyone? And all this on Obama the great ones watch.)
