Okay, there's several things wrong with this video:

1. What the woman did was dumb. Unless her bag consisted of bricks and she could swing the purse better, then there wasn't any way she was going to knock out that man. It was a poor attempt, and I'm surprised he didn't shoot her in return.

2. Those school board members got really lucky because those were just absolutely terrible shots. I don't know what he was thinking at that point in time.

3. V for Vendetta? Are you kidding me? What an idiot! He got nothing accomplished with that scene. His wife was laid off, whether he liked it or not, and now he's dead. Now his wife has to bare being a single wife with no job. More like R for Retard.

I was wondering when this was going to be posted. As much as I hate the school boards decisions in this state, props to the lead guy for staying so calm and trying to get the guy to let the others go as well. They are all very lucky he was such a crappy shot.

What I can't imagine is, this was streaming live on the internet. So whoever watches school board meetings on the internet must have been flipping a shit. I mean can you imagine watching that as it's happening and being able to do nothing?

The school board doesn't even remember laying off his wife, let alone know who she is. For all we know, he might not even have a wife and was acting psycho.

This. I'm sure her heart was in the right place, but she is lucky to be alive. She should have swung at his head, and with something heavier like a chair. She really should have just stayed out of the way. I mean, in that guys place, I probably would have shot her just on reflex.


Also, I thought it was interesting how he started shooting and the one guy ducked, but everyone else just sat there for 5 seconds dumbfounded. Really, the only reason more people didn't die is dumb luck and a bit of twisted generosity on the man's part.

The video seemed more like a comedy when you look at what happened. First, the main thing accomplished was getting himself shot, that's it. V for Vendetta makes me think he was watching too many movies. Second, the lady who attacked the man. If you watch it, she barely even hits his arm and announces her surprise attack by a war cry. I cant for the life of me think what she hoped to do if she cant swing a bag and hit someone in the head who is less than a foot from her. Saying she is lucky for not getting shot out of her stupidity is putting it lightly. Third, the man had no aim whatsoever despite being fairly close to the individuals. The board members accredit god for that, I accredit the guy being a poor shooter. The guy was a careless shooter and when the first shot rang out, a few of the board members were still sitting upright in shock, he lazily took his time to shoot again. Hell, one of the board members when into a fetal position sitting on the chair after 2 shots were fired! Part of me wonders if he was actually planning on killing anyone or not. Starting with the dumb lady, she could've foiled his plans so it'd make sense to shoot her to prevent that but he didn't even raise his gun at her! Although he shot, the guy seemed to do it without much care and without bothering to take better aim after the first shot missed. Furthermore, when some of the board members tried to take responsibility and the one guy said his life is good with his wife, he's fortunate Duke didn't see it as the guy thumbing his nose at him.

Fourth, suppose he did kill some of the board members. Would that get his wife a job? It's still a 50/50 chance, which is the same chance she would've had when she first applied for her job without gun-wielding husband. Lastly, this was in front of live cameras, so he couldn't take any hostages and he would've been shot by police anyway (or at least arrested for murder on multiple people).

Seems to be an outcome of poor shooting, lots of generosity with letting the individuals live and lots of dumb luck (emphasis on the dumb).
