    From the OP (PeteEU) on, I have little but contempt to those looking for political traction while the corpses are still warm. Even if he was Tea Party, OWS or a dingbat socialist like those who populate this site, I could not bring myself to condemn those of his affiliation. Now if he were al-Queda, that would be different.

    and his political party, religion, tastes in movies, sexual orientation, and a whole lot of other irrelevant issues will be brought up as well.

    Silly ? This video was from an incident exactly one week ago today. North of me. Only takes one minute to watch, and it is non-stop action

    Scumbags do love to prey on the unarmed. I think there should have been at least a armed security guard or two there.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's pretty badass of that guy, but of course, the situation at hand is an completely different situation. The guys in that video probably weren't there to kill people. They weren't decked out in bullet proof vests, neck guards and whatever else this dude had on. They didn't throw a smoke or tear gas bomb into their target area and they didn't just start shooting people at random.

    You're comparing apples to oranges. I highly doubt that weapons would have done much good in this situation.

    Looks like he ran off the armed robber. Good for him. Now, imagine the same thing happening in a crowded theater with a crazy person in possession of automatic weapons. I'm not so sure the outcome would have been quite so happy.

    Were there, in fact, armed people in the theater? If so, why didn't they take the nutter out?
