What makes you think you can assume that this person is of ANY ethnic group? This sounds more like a suicidal leftist lunatic rather than any terrorist.

I doubt that 5 pipe bombs that are not attached to the bridge will cause significant structural damage.

Odd that they’ve stopped Westbound traffic (top deck) but not the Eastbound (bottom deck). It was the top deck falling onto the bottom deck during the last earthquake that caused Cali to rebuild that section of bridge. If the guy really does have bombs this doesn’t make sense.

I find it unreal they are letting the traffic flow on the lower level even though they expect explosives are in the vehicle on the upper level.

” A man who claims to have pipe bombs is threatening to jump off the Bay Bridge. “

Reminds me of the old George Carlin bit -

“I’m pregnant and I’m going to kill myself!!”..

“Say - you *are* a good sport, arent you??”

(sometimes the synapses just fire randomly - ya never quite know what’s gonna come out... ;))

My guess ... Jerry Brown decided he didn't want to be California's next governor after all.

IF they're just pipe bombs, they aren't going to blow a hole in the deck, unless they're 2' diameter pipes.

“IF they're just pipe bombs, they aren't going to blow a hole in the deck, unless they're 2’ diameter pipes.”

Most likely, but it sure seems the Police in this case are not erring on the side of caution. Seems like I read a story recently of several bricks of C-4 being “found” just lying around somewhere.

I hope you are right and these are just amateur pipe bombs.

Cars at the toll booth are making a u-turn and being turned back. Cars between the toll booth and Treasure Island (I’d guess at least a couple miles) are just stuck on the one-way level until the police give the all-clear. Even if this jerk has a pipe bomb, which he probably doesn’t, he’ll blow up his car but not make a dent in the bridge, either deck.

Get a loader equipped with a magnet, pick up the car and drop it over the side of the bridge. Resume flow of traffic.

As often as possible, seek the simple solution.

The guy’s been captured. Stuck bridge traffic is off the bridge, and the toll booths are opening up.

Is that a pipe bomb in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? Inspector Harry Callahan is the go to guy in SF would be suicide cases IIRC.

I volunteered to do that a couple of times and the CHP told me I couldn’t.

Typical Libtard narcissitic idjit — these people cannot even off themsleves quietly alone somewhere, they have to make a huge friggin production of it and inconvenience as many as possible while doing it.

They're pipe bombs. There's no danger to the bridge, but there would be some danger to traffic passing nearby.

I’m not even sure this is a crime anymore. Maybe they better add a ballot measure in the next election to make sure.

Now, if he was giving away Happy Meal toys, THAT would be something to be alarmed about. This is just a guy expressing his right to free speech.

Actually, no. - It was the power of big unions that wanted the work that prompted the replacement of a perfectly good bridge, that could have been reinforced sufficiently to last another 75 years for about 25 million.

Boy, the Obama administration has gone all out in coming up with threats to the country....missile launches, bombs on bridges...

Lead up to Big Sis declaring martial law before the new representatives can take their seats in congress?

You may say "tin foil hat" but can you HONESTLY say that this is beyond the realm of possibility?
