Is the guy on the crane a sniper? If he is armed with a handgun, he is basically harmless up there. They have SO MANY options for getting a guy off a crane, LOL! The first thought that comes to my mind is 220 VAC and some jumper cables, LOL!
A sniper shot from a helicopter is not easy. Tear gas onto his platform, or buck shot, or just shake the crane.
It is also starting to get dark. Does the gunman have a night vision scope?edit on 28-5-2012 by getreadyalready because: (no reason given)
a man holding police at bay told negotiators by radio, "I am waiting for my appointed time.
After six hours in the confined cab of the crane, negotiators said the man sounds "pretty drained" but is "reluctant to come down because he's afraid the department has a 'hit' on him."
