Vallone on the Legality of Base Jumping

Peter Vallone, Jr. went to court this morning to argue against one base jumper’s claim that, if Vallone introduced a bill last week to outlaw leaping off the Empire State Building (and other tall structures) with a parachute, it wasn’t illegal when the jumper tried to do it.

Vallone, who advocates a tough line on graffiti and dangerous thrill-seeking activities, disagrees.
