    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Looks like the Brits took a page out of Cincinnati's play book. Only difference is here we would be called racist.

    So.... tell me again why they didn't call his bluff on jumping?

    Dear Lord... If our politicians were as concerned with human rights as the British.... Man nobody would ever go hungry... 'course nobody would work either.

    "Although he is being a nuisance, we still have to look after his well-being and human rights."

    OK, whatever. He is more than a nuisance, he is a criminal if he is throwing bricks at people. And seems like he gave up his "human rights" when he decided to be said criminal. Sheesh, why didn't he just ask to be allowed to walk away? We wouldn't want to get in the way of his "rights" to do whatever he wants.

    This is why the world is in such disarray...food baskets for criminals? When the dirtbag started throwing bricks...it should have been treated like a gun in the hand...both are dangerous weapons...

    How are the Brits going to build homes now? Bricks will be outlawed...

    Sheeeeesh...

    why couldnt they say "turn yourself in and you'll get food"? Is the world insane? The criminal is responsible for his human rights--Give up and you can have some healthy prison food!

    Having stood by for many jumpers, it is very common for the negoiater to offer food or drink, it's part of the bond forming process and if they accept generally means they will end up complying with the officers. Pretty normal practice everywhere I have heard.

    You guys fail to see the beauty of this. The Brits decided on a Tactical Cholesterol Intervention. Instead of shooting him, they are building up his arterioeschlerosis and he will eventually die of a heart attack. Peaceful end to the stand.

    Very true, but I do find the humor in the irony.

    "threatened to jump" - So let him! Good grief. Enough of this mamsy pamsy feel good BS. Call him on it. Let the bugger jump if he so chooses or shoot his arse down. Come sit on my roof and rip it apart to throw pieces at people and see how long you get to stay up there! I'm really tired of this whole human rights argument. He gave those up when he scaled the roof of someone elses property, damaged it, and began throwing parts of it at the people below. All bets are off .
