  1. It’s a little unclear about how the subject ended up on the ground there is a gap in the story between him trying to throw the female off the balcony and him being held down on the ground, did the people who came to help throw him off? now wouldn’t that be swift justice.

      • Maybe all four of the people sat on him … that’s one way of keeping him down. These tweekers tend to struggle a lot.

    • Here is the gap…
