Oh now I remember the first one. I was thinking of a later one they did.

No, he starts talking to the jumper like he wants to jump too, and that he’s actually going to take him (the wouldbe jumper) along with him. Then they both wind up jumping. Mel’s cop character kind of has a deathwish though.

True. I noted that in a later post after thinking back on it. Yeah, Riggs definitely had that in him, but it seems apparent that he knew he’d actually be saving the guy’s life. But he enjoyed actually making him think it was “for real”.

I’m thinking of a later one (in my first post) where I believe Riggs tells the guy he’s not going to stop him because he knew of somebody that did it and they couldn’t make out who was who, because both went over. So he asks for ID and starts getting all graphic about the (supposed) incident. At which point the guy gets sick and he pulls him in, saving his life. I was thinking that was in one of those films, too.

You seriously are defending the intent of the pusher as “we don’t know so don’t judge”?

I am not defending his intent. I am merely saying that you can not know his intent. I can not defend his intent because I have no more knowledge of his intent than you do. I do know that there were circumstances that could have made his intent much more benign than intent to kill.

Well, I got a pretty good guess as to what will happen if you push somebody off a bridge in this country, even if they live.

‘Splainin’ that one away will be very, very difficult...

Okay, I know this is serious, but my twisted mind can’t help but think of the movie Better Off Dead:

(Fast forward to the 2:50 mark)

Correction. As I was driving home tonight from “Terminator”, I remembered that it was a Clint Eastwood film where that happened. 1970’s.
