SAN FRANCISCO — A car burglary suspect plunged 200 feet to his death after he jumped over a wall on San Francisco's Telegraph Hill while trying to flee from police, authorities said.
The unidentified man died early Thursday after police say they received a report that someone was breaking into cars on a city block near Coit Tower.
Authorities say they attempted to arrest the suspect after they saw him getting out of a car. But the suspect ran and jumped over a wall — apparently without realizing there was a steep drop.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said the man was a suspect in two burglaries.

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

I'd have paid good money to see the look on his face!
When? As he jumped over the wall and figured out it was a long way down or after he landed?I'd have paid good money to see the look on his face!
Too bad, so sad.
