I should be able to resume posting shortly.

I don't think they proofread this paragraph ...
We're all in, then ...
This sounds like a good idea for the whole internet ...
I wonder why they chose to make such an announcement ...

I don't even know where to start on this one ...
Interesting if you're about to take a cruise ...
This is said like that would be the normal thing to do. You can rest assured that they are NEVER going to ask you to review their security footage ... there never even going to LET you review their security footage. If it's really important and there is something preventing them from making a solid determination themselves, they might show you a single vidcap and say "Is this the guy?" ...
I hope this is true ... but it seems likely that they would be saying this whether it was true or not considering all the press they've been getting about possible being forced to make deals with governments and then the governments seemingly relenting at the last minute ...
HMS Astute grounded

This is a better picture ...

I guess I can't blame them for closing the bullet-proof windows and leaving the walk-up customer to suck on a hail of bullets ... after all, they might be part of a broader scheme to get someone inside for the robbery ... still, it's pretty cold ...
We probably had to do the first ... probably shouldn't have done the second ...

This makes it sound like he was robbing them serially as they came and went, but that seems unlikely considering Security was on-the-ball enough to detain the guy AFTER he unloaded into what was presumably his final victim of the evening and thereby demonstrating his complete willingness to shoot folks. That doesn't sound like they'd be OK with him merely robbing folks all night, does it?

I suspect their premiums will go up for the next few policy-years ...
Hmmm ... the fallacy of Special Knowledge ...

It will continue to be interesting to see how this plays out.

If they actually had the authority to detain, then they should have done the rest of them rather than make the threat over and over again on camera to no effect (bad for business).

Hmmm ... if the first guy they detained did whatever they detained him for in the venue (the Alaska Room, Auditorium, Lunch Room, etc.) that was rented by the principal (the purchaser of the Security services), then they could quite possibly have the authority to deny access within the bounds of that venue and subsequently detain if there was a refusal to leave. But it seems unlikely that they would have rented the back hallway they're detaining the guy in (or the rest of the school, as one of the reporters pointed out) so they wouldn't have the authority to deny access, detain or otherwise interfere with the other reporters out in the hallway. Doing so without authority is usually a crime (what crime(s) depends on the jurisdiction).

The guy doing all the talking for the Security company doesn't sound all that confident that he has the authority out in the hallway (or wherever that is), and it looks like the policeman isn't buying any of it.

Also:
Lisa Murkowski is calling Joe Miller a liar [http:/pdf/miller_lies_to_press.pdf] for claiming on national news shows that he was required to hire security for his town-hall event at Central Middle School.

Free encryption (maybe), what's not to like ...?
Oddly enough, diesel-electrics are probably the greatest threat, just because everyone that can afford atomic subs has too much to lose to risk screwing around with them ...
It would be hard to read the Tanakh (the Old Testament in the Hebrew configuration) and come to the conclusion that the Israelis have ANY illusions about security ...
One never knows how such things are going to play out ...

It really is loathsome that there is anywhere on this planet where this sort of tripe flies ...
I imagine there are areas where a bike would be a damn efficient method of avoiding arrest ... of course, in Vegas we got cops on their own bikes to chase you ...

Of course, they aren't sorry about the other million cameras around the rest of London because those only offend WASPs ...
I'm guessing that there is more to this than we're hearing ... or the story is a complete fabrication to cover something else up ...
Well ... whatever admiration his scumbag buddies had for him has probably evaporated ... 8o)
