Yeah that is true. I have heard two things. That he has been up in the crane since 11:30 am and that this all started at 2:30 am...
So does that mean he was on the run from the cops since 2:30 am and then got into the crane at 11:30 am or they just not quite sure when he got up there?
And I agree, I kind of got the impression that guy was hoping for the guy to hold out longer. He even implied it as a possibility during his newscast...Which some how, I found in bad taste....
Not a "I hope this ends well", just a " this could go on for days".

Even the comments from those idiots on the chat page, the reporter, and my own sister confirmed it for me. Everyone either wants him to stay up there till he's almost dead, wants him to jump, or wants him to kill himself and save the taxpayers money and a trial. Sadly, that too, is human nature.

"We were informed that an unidentified man climbed a crane at our residential commons construction site," SMU spokesman Brad Cheves said. "Fortunately, the campus is closed for the Memorial Day holiday. However, upon being informed that someone had gained access to the construction site, through our SMU police we immediately began to secure and cordon off the affected area."
No students were on campus, Cheves said, noting only "essential personnel and visitors" were on the grounds. He also added that a handful of swimmers in a pool near the crane were told to leave.
Kent Best, another SMU spokesman, said earlier that the man in the crane was a suspect fleeing from Dallas police. Gutierrez said she could not confirm that report.
Police blocked off parts of the campus and much of Mockingbird Lane on the south side of the SMU campus, as well as access to a strip mall near the crane. Observers on the ground could see signs of movement in the cab if they looked through binoculars or viewfinders of cameras.
The crane cab was fully exposed to the blazing Texas sun and temperatures were in the low 90s.
Gutierrez said electricity to the crane had been cut, and she believed the radio in the cab was not affected
The suspect in a nearly 15 hour standoff on the SMU campus fell 150 feet from the crane's cab to the ground.
At 1:45 a.m. Tuesday, the man was hanging from the side of the cab when he fell.

Screw the bleeding heart bull crap.
This guy pulled a car jacking with a weapon crashed the vehicle into at least 4 other vehicles and could have killed anyone in the process. If he dies I don`t care but yes sucks to be one of his family members.
All people pulling a car jacking should be shot they kill people and I`m talking innocent people.
