Check out this VIDEO folks, talk about being upset!
uh oh, no vid Gene.
I call Shenanigans on that one. Anyone work in a office setting that didn't have their monitors plugged in to their towers? He threw them with out pulling out any power supplies etc. Kinda strange if you ask me. I'm thinking its a well crafted set up of a "crazy worker that snapped" on video. I could be wrong. Just my two cents.
OH MY!!!!! That was me last week when all 2 of my short-pay offers were shot down That manager dude (I can see a "manager" a mile away) has some serious you know what to even throw down with that dude! I would've cleared all of my employees out, called the cops, and locked the pissed dude inside! And then would have went to the AM-PM on the corner and bought a pack of Camels' and passed them around to my peeps! And nobody smokes in my office! Thanks for the funny post Gene!
You know, the first thing I noticed was the moniters. I haven't seen those around here in like 3 or 4 years. Plus, some of the dudes have what appear to bizness mullets. All biz upfront, party in the back! I will summarily fire anybody who walks into my office with one of those LOL! This could be a slapstick hoax

I dunno, looked pretty real to me. If you pull on a monitor and chuck it the wires are gonna just come out. Besides, the woman sitting across from him got whacked with the monitor and looked like she got hurt. If it had been staged they would have been more careful. This guy really looked like he was freaked out. What gets me is that only one person seemed to want to try to stop him. Everyone else just watched. What a bunch.
thats insane. someone shoulda taken him out way sooner than they did
Watched it again. I still say the woman sitting across from him got hurt when he threw that monitor. If you watch her you can see that the woman who helps her often checks her head and applies tissue to what is probably a bleeding cut. Why would a staged vid have such a careless and violent action in it? If it was staged he would have chucked his monitor on the floor where nobody would be hurt, he would have thrown some paper around and then he would have jumped up and down and screamed a bit and it would have been over. This guy was out of control nuts!!
Yeah, prolly not a hoax. I feel bad for that lady. The assualt charges most have been numerous. That manager could have made a mistake by even intervening, he could be hit with an assualt charge, though I am sure a judge would throw that one out based on the vid.
I'm still thinking it was made to look real just to start a buzz or a thread like this one. Either way its working right?
Sooooo.... what? The monitor was made of styrofoam or something? Made to look real? If made to look real means actually hurting people in the process of making the vid then the video is just as good as real, because that guy was out of control.
I'm not saying this was a set with foam parts. I just saying it looks fake. Who knows if that woman got hurt. Probably good acting. Go back to the video and read the 100+ comments. I'm not the only one who thinks its a fake.
I once burnt down the Anger Managment building I went to.........Ok, mabey not.
EDIT - I whatched the video....And if it is real, this could be a could case of having a designated worker,etc. that carries a taser or something would be helpfull. Unless of corse its the guy going crazy that carries it.
Nice find Gypsyboy! Yeah, I know who is taking that video from the first one. Sounds like they were speaking Russian or something and that guy that was tazing him looks like a security officer with a badge patch on his left shoulder.
I'm on the fence with this one... if its a hoax (which I hope it was) none of it came across funny to me. shocking yes... skeptical you bet... but not funny at all... But if it was indeed real that would be very terrifying and again Very Not Funny. We live In a very violent world and I watch this stuff every day on the news.. what ever happened to the pull-my-finger monkey...now that will always make me laugh...lol
Yeah, I'm not convinced it's actually real, but there are just a few things about it that seem a little "harsh" if you know what I mean. The guy to the nutty fella's right was swept right off his chair by the attack at the begining of it. And of course it is my opinion that the woman on his left was actually hurt by that monitor being hefted toward her. On the other hand it did seem odd that the two monitors he threw didn't appear to be attached to wires. It's possible they just got pulled right out when he ripped them off the desk, but still... seemed odd. Also, we never seem to see him toss a computer that is turned so we can see that it is actually on and working. That's fishy. It was either real, or a very well orchestrated attempt to make it look real... even down to what appear to be people actually getting hurt.
Reminds me of something way off topic, and a little silly, but I recall years ago when I watched the Popeye movie with Robin Williams. There was a scene where Bluto was mad and tossing everything around - one guy was on one side of a door that got knocked in and he was sort of "riding it down" toward the floor. Well, when the door hit the floor, the guy's face came WHACK onto the door and just before the shot changed we could see a very real look of pain on the guy's face, and he sort of reached up to see if he was bleeding or something. All I could think was "ouch, that looks like a stunt gone a bit bad".
