Did the Security guard have a gun? Because I really don't see how he thought he was going to win this battle with s shambok. No disrespect to the deceased.

Jack Tig - for your information, Mark van den Broeck WAS a hero. Personally I think he was twice the man you could ever dream to be. He was someone who cared for his fellow men and would go the extra mile for anyone. So please I beg of you - keep your negative comment to yourself.
