    While this is horrible, questions come to mind. For example, why did the other three guards not restrain their fellow guard? Are they charged with complicity? Were any of the guards injured in the scuffle?

    While the article presents a horrible picture, I am not sure it is sufficiently complete.

    I believe the term is deindividualism which basically means that, in a state of anonymity people are more likely to do more extreme radical actions. The guard also did have a uniform which adds furthur to the anonymity and feeling less of his own identity. Often times feeling the need to conform to listen to authority as well. Also possibly the guard rationalized his actions by dehumanizing thieves and therefore felt justified in his actions. According to Philip Zimbardo's famous Standford prison experiment, ALL people are capable of becoming "evil" based on his experiment which caused a group of smart, standard standford students to become sadistic prison guards and torture and abuse other peers of their same age. It is not so much ALWAYS due to dispositional attributions within an individual but sometimes due to the situational attribution. However, most of society today seems to make the fundamental attribution error and commonly blame the disposition. Just a thought, for all I know he really could be a "sadistic fascist piece of subhuman filth" haha

    Indeed. If he was alright then maybe, but he was slowly choked to death.

    Absolutely horrendous. I'd never condone shoplifting but to say the reaction was over the top is a massive understatement. The culprit deserves to go down for a very long time.

    Its shocking that he would steal something that was only £35 which goes to prove that thieves have very poor taste

    I can kinda understand wanting to kill someone over Joop. I mean, have you smelled that stuff?

    Youtube Ted talks - Zimbardo does an interesting presentation all about that. basically stating that context/situational factors are more/as important then disposition or what's learned.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I'm appalled. People are paying £35 for Joop!? What's the world coming to...

    As for the guard. Excessive force? Yes, but it might not be out of malice. Security guards are paid to use their strength prevent people stealing and making trouble. Wise judgment and careful thinking are not job requirements to be a mall cop; there's no guarantee the guard was the sharpest melon baller in the kitchenware shop, if you catch my meaning. He could have just been doing what he thought of as his job.

    That "security guard" needs to go to prison for a long, long time.

    So, someone has decided that the price of a human life should be £35? Gruesomely.
