Suicide Prevention

Suicide Fences
Originally uploaded by aimeedars

As a result of the Cornell suicides, these fences were put up along the Stewart Avenue bridge. They are ugly, and as George pointed out, it would be very easy to walk around them and get to the bars to jump. It seems more like public relations than safety, though I suppose the argument could be made that if someone had to take the time to walk around the barricade, it would give them time to reflect instead of jump impulsively into the gorge.
