    Good for T.I, but does it strike anyone else as strange that the police would let someone completely untrained act in this role? Imagine their liability if Harris had (innocently) said the wrong thing and the guy had jumped .Report

    Brush with celebrity for me: this was across the street from my office and I walked past the building and saw the guy milling around on the roof of the building while the police were starting to shut the street down.
    Speculation is rampant down here in the ATL that this was a stunt.
    T.I. apparently called into a very popular radio station to communicate to the police that he wanted to help this guy. I can say the guys was up there for several hours before he was talked down and I think it’s likely he didn’t want to jump.Report
