The man in the tree – Seattle, Washington

Posted on Updated on

city-skyline-693502_640It seems we’re so trained to treat the world as our own personal entertainment venue that when it comes to a mentally challenged man’s fate, we don’t give a shit what happens to him. We the inconvenienced public stand at the base of an 80 foot tree into which he’s climbed in one of the busiest sections of downtown Seattle, Washington and we shout:

“Shoot him!”


What the hell is wrong with us that we so carelessly thrust our complete lack of empathy at this man with words that could very well have ended his life right before our eyes?

Frack you

those who treated this human being’s frailty with such callousness!

Frack you!

      He finally climbed down almost 24 hours after he climbed up. So ashamed of my city for the way some of the public reacted to this man’s illness.
