Deport him and then he won't be able to jump off the bridge.
Yeah, who cares about thousands of people getting together to save a life, right? THERE'S AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT AROUND!!
Is this your idea of a joke?
No, I am serious. Illegals need to be deported.
Life can be quite simple when you're a teenager.
or when you are naive enough to believe an anonymous message from a supposed illegal to gain sympathy.
How do you gain sympathy by remaining anonymous?
you're confident enough to risk the possibility of it being a genuine cry for help?
Speaking of anonymity... you're a very interesting character Mr. Acorn. You seem to have been towards the end of the queue when empathy was being handed out - a trait most associated with teenagers. I could be wrong of course.
This is from the PostSecret website, about two-thirds down the page:
Justice is more important than empathy, and I am not a teenager so I don't know what you are getting at.
sympathy for illegals, not for this person. You are trying pretty hard here.
What you call "justice" is nothing but authoritarianism, and true justice is nothing without compassion.
So you think this is a conspiracy to garner sympathy for all illegal immigrants? Seems like you are the one who is reaching here.
Seems pretty convenient given the circumstances.
Convenient for whom? Which circumstances? These glib one-liners leave much to be desired.
Sympathizers with illegals, given the circumstances of Arizona's passage of actually enforcing immigration laws.
A facebook group hoping to save a life? God, people are stupid.
, why? If people show they care and that the individual concerned is wanted I'm sure that's important to them.
I think you're just too cynical. Facebook is acting as a medium to show suicidal people that there are others out there who care. Why is that stupid? Or is it just because it's on Facebook that you have a problem?
No. It's a way for people to pretend they've done something (like all those "show you care about AIDS in Africa" groups) without actually doing anything.
So what? If it stops the person jumping then clearly all the people who joined would have done something. It's also about increasing awareness.
Someone jumps off the Golden Gate Bridge every month. I'm sure the person who sent in that postcard already did the deed.
that's the spirit. glass half full.....
You think it would change anything if I joined the Facebook group?
