    How were all four arrested????? Did one of them give up names on the others like a rat? This dude in the video is packing away his shute and no one is around him.

    1) NSA spying.

    2) the BASE jumping community can't be THAT big. Somebody outside the group of 4 could have recognized their voices or eyes at the end and turned them in for whatever reason (personal gripes, etc).

    These arrests should send a message to anyone thinking about misusing a landmark this way,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said. “They will be tracked down and they will face serious charges. Being a thrill-seeker does not give immunity from the law.”


    Ahhh. But I love how all that work and punishment goes in these guys just jumping off a building, but a guy who rapes a 10 yr old girl is quickly pushed through the system and gets 6 months probation and no "serious charges", etc. Good job law enforcement.:rolleye:

    "Send a message" to rapists? Nooo!

    "Send a message" to BASE jumpers...YES! "Tracked down and punished!" :rolleye:

    No shit...From that article the fucking NYC judge sounded like he thought those guys bombed the place.

    I'm too much of a wimp to BASE jump, but am gonna do this before I die...

    the cops checked all the security cameras in the area.. and found a car parked a block or two away.. they ran the plate.. and looked into the guy... hey.. he likes to skydive..

    the rest is easy... just good old fashioned police work.

    As someone already mentioned.. the world of base jumpers isn't exactly huge.. These guys were good.. they landed among skyscrapers, light poles, traffic lights, etc...

    I bet that parachute is distinctive and in a dozen other youtube videos that the people show their faces in.

    Second break in in a month? That's some security they got there. Nobody will want to work in that place.

    You could start out small. Like jumping off your sofa. When you get better you can jump off the kitchen table. Work your way up.
