I take it all back

Surprise, surprise: the dumb-ass fuckhead who let go with the mace in the middle of a crowd WAS a club security guard. Off the AP wires:

>CHICAGO - Hundreds of screaming guests rushed the exits of a crowded nightclub Monday after security guards used a chemical spray to quell a fight, and at least 21 people were crushed to death or smothered in the panic, officials and witnesses said.

>Firefighters responding to the scene found a number of locked or blocked doors and used sledgehammers and pry bars to open some of them so that people could be rescued, Fire Commissioner James Joyce said at a late morning briefing.

>"There are people trying to get out that could not get out," Joyce said. "Locked and blocked doors are a contributing factor. We can't explain how management or ownership would allow that."

>The locked doors are a fire code violation, Joyce said.

Motherfuckers. Anyone remember the Hamlet chicken plant disaster, or any number of other situations in the last 20 years where people have died because management locks or chains shut the doors?

Shut 'em down, shut 'em shut 'em down.

(As an aside, I think it's awesome that my city's fire commissioner is named James Joyce. If he starts talking about how the fire was caused by 'the insertitude of the void' I'ma shit myself.)
