To continue to display how bad the government of San Francisco is they have approved 50 million dollars to build a suicide net for the Golden Gate Bridge. There are 10,000 other ways to kill yourself in San Francisco besides jumping off the Golden Gate bridge. The Bay Bridge is only a few miles away and would be just as lethal if you jumped so it won't even stop people from jumping off bridges. Anyways, considering the city and state are completely broke this 50 million dollars could go to something more productive than putting a massive net to prevent 1 of the 10,000 ways to kill yourself in San Francisco. I think this is the worst idea of all time and if anyone can justify it at all please defend it I would love to hear a rational argument for it.
Preventing suicide is important and you could use 50 million dollars on something else that would solve the problem, but a gigantic net will not do it. I am just baffled at how much money San Francisco spends on things that have no effect at solving actual problems. I really think a 6 year old could come up with a more efficient plan to stop suicide than this.
