This is kind of cool ... if you're into Macs, anyway ...

I mainly included this one because I like the name of the store ...

It should have been obvious to the vic that the perp intended to apply to empty mug to his brain-housing group ... either he was completely oblivious or just didn't have a clue what to do to stop the guy ...

I'm kind of surprised that they aren't completely isolated from the regular web ...

Not a very professional op ...
You can have peaceful, quite communities or you can have a war on drugs, but you can't have both ...

It looks like he let someone he didn't know or didn't like get way up on him ...

They appear to be totally misrepresenting what actually happened. Whatever it was that sent the crowd running, I can just about guarantee that it wasn't because some guy was throwing stuff around. Most likely, it was some kind of panicked, and ultimately erroneous,  announcement on the loud speaker by Mall representatives ("RUN for GAWD SAKE ...RUN!!!). Otherwise, your average mall shopper would stand there and watch the guy in the "rampage" walk up and hit them in their face ...

It doesn't say what the reason for the ruling is, but if there is an underlying contract that they were all parties to that says disputes will be decided under sharia law, it seems to me no different than  having a contract that says disputes will be decided under Nevada law or French law (which is as kosher as church on Sunday). If  it was in the contract and they signed it, the judge was right in ruling the way he did and that's the only way I can imagine such a ruling occurring.

Oh man ... he jacks one in and the magazine drops out onto the floor. On the other hand, he realized it immediately, got it back in while maintaining cover and changing position, and then he jacked another one in and made with some serious blam-blams ... never hit anything, but suppression fire is good, too ...
Video is as good for proving nothing happened as it is proving something happened. If I was responsible for MJ's surveillance video at the time of his death, I'd be making copies left and right, unless ...

With the vic's face blocked you can't really tell whether he's just standing there or yelling some kind of smack at the locked restroom door leading up to the punching. Yelling at the door, or doing something else that is provocative rather than patiently waiting for his turn at the restroom, certainly wouldn't be justification for the other guy to punch him, but it would indicate that he had significantly reduced his 'resistance to selection for interference' leading up to getting punched, and may actually paint him in the light of interferior if he thought someone vulnerable was in there at the time.

Well ... this was fairly intense ...

It will be interesting to see the effect this has on border security ...
There will always be places where crowds gather ... maybe you should concentrate on keeping the stuff that leaves the ground from blowing up ...
It'll probably work for awhile ...
Some interesting back-story ...

To get a sense of how hard it would be to stay focused on screening for 8 minutes, much less 8 hours, try thinking about nothing but driving the next time you get in a car to drive. Before you turn the key your mind will have drifted to some other subject. That said, I bet if the same guy was trying to sneak the box-cutters through, the screener would have noticed them. This is because the passenger's vibe would have focused the screener's attention.
I really hate the Z-tol approach to problem solving, but having multiple standards for a single secure access is always a recipe for disaster. As long as the everyone from the District Superintendent to the students have to use the same recognition-for-access routine, penalizing the student, even for a chivalry-based violation, is entirely appropriate.

I imagine the self-defense defense will be a hard sell but, on the other hand, it's hard to imagine a banker with his son in the car just up and deciding  to toothpaste a bunch of bicyclists. The video doesn't show the lead up, but the event itself is fairly intense.
