    Funny ’toon under unfunny circumstances.

    Not even funny. Future? Schools in the US already have metal detectors.

    After 9/11 and even before the shoe bomber, someone predicted that the only truly safe flight is one with the passengers naked and handcuffed to their seats. It hasn’t come to that, so probably won’t at the movies, but neither is TSA operation any better than “security theater”, rather than true security. The same will doubtless be true of whatever security measures are adopted for movies.

    But after all, Mr Holmes didn’t buy a ticket anyway, did he? Maybe the solution is to booby-trap emergency exits. Or no, that wouldn’t work . . .

    Are you saying that your face kills? A full face mask can be hiddden in a pocket. As for door alarms, there is no easy answer as gunshots should be as alarming as a bell or other "alarm. What would keep someone from waiting for the movie to end and killing the first one out the door, stepping in and opening up?

    Edmund Burke said it well." If the laws are not written in the hearts of men, then there are not sufficient constables who could enforce them."

    “Fire exits” are supposed to be alarmed, but the exit he blocked open, after buying a ticket and going in, then out the exit to get his weapons, may NOT have been under fire codes a “fire exit”.

    When, 10years ago, I went to my high school 40th reunion, I was shocked at the fencing, gates, security, and yes, metal detecting wands of ARMED security guards at the school. It was greater security than at many jails, and prisons, I’ve visited. It was very, creepy, and a “sign of the times” .

    What’s “interesting” about all the security, is the constant reminder that even the most rigid “police state”, is STILL INSECURE! Terror just plays on the fear that calls for all the security, and makes folks even MORE paranoid!!

    Maybe they can just have everyone do the Hokey Pokey as they enter.

    Yes he did. And then he went out the Emergency Exit, propped the door open, got the weapons out of his car and went back.

    Alarm on the Exit doors, needs an employee with a key to turn it off.
    Unless he got back before the person turning off the alarm, he wouldn’t be able to waltz in the open door. And everyone in the theater would know that someone had opened that door.

    “In 1912 every kid out west learned to shoot from his dad, in order to keep the wolfs and dingos down (darn, I sound like a real American, don’t I, Yeeeh-Haw…).”

    That would have to be WAY out west, since dingos are Australian. :-)

    Either that, or the American kids had access to ICBM’s (no doubt the NRA is hard at work to make that a reality).

    Just a thought….

    More staff (generally, in all workplaces) would help somewhat.

    I’m not saying it would solve the problem of murders per se but all this discussion about alarmed doors….hey, there used to be ushers in cinemas. Now my local cinema is closed and the multiplex has removed most of its staff – just buy a ticket online and scan it in to get into the right screen – no one notices anything about who goes in or out really.

    Employ people. Let people work, not machines. Solves many social problems.

    @Sandy Shore

    A friend of mine went to visit relatives in Pakistan for a family wedding. The family was building the newlyweds a home on the family’s land. Instead of building the cellar with a backhoe and three or four guys, the contractor showed up with a hundred men with picks, shovels, and wheelbarrows. At the end of the day, the cellar was dug, and a hundred men went home with pay in their pockets. I’ll bet they didn’t need to go to the gym after work or have any problem with obesity either.

    And the community had been an active part of each other’s lives! Good story.

    What did they pay these guys to dig that basement? Think it may have been below our min wage?
