The top secret night club finger print machine?

By johnboy 5 December 2008 47

On the ongoing saga of night club finger printing, PM has posted an account of his efforts to document the process:

    “A few weeks ago I tried to take some photos of the machine and I was asked by a bouncer to stop because it was private property 🙂

    So, appreciating the opportunity to further highlight the irony of the situation, I tried to take a couple of photos of them. It was probably a bad idea, but until that time my friend and I were just being lighthearted.

    They chased me and my friend across the road where we stopped at a police van – no police around, but things calmed down. We figured the police would be nearby, and no bouncer’s going to attack a couple of blokes right next to a police van.

    I was told that if I ever came back they’d bash my f**king head in, or words to that effect.

    I know many bouncers – most are great. But the main bouncer that night was a right cockhead who shouldn’t hold a security license.”

I wasn’t there for long at all.

I was suggesting that maybe someone other then you had been irritating them, and your timing resulted in you copping their wrath. I am not suggesting that that is appropriate behaviour for bouncers in the slightest.

It the machines are on the footpath, then I fail to see the issue at all. Go in with a camera crew, lighting, boom mic operator, etc, and see how they react…

It seems to me that the Club in Question has set up some equipment on public pavement and appear to be impeding pedestrian traffic.

If anyone wants to use Big Brother Equipment, surely it should be within the confines of their leased space?

I wasn’t there for long at all.

After reading about the machines on The Riot Act I was interested in them, so took photos. It that’s stirring the pot, then I’m guilty as charged.

…but looks like the person taking the photos was stirring the pot, and when some people are stirred they get violent.

While this is very true, the people in question are supposed to be trained security professionals, who I would expect to meet a higher standard. That said, you don’t know what fu%&tard had been baiting them for the last three hours…

Next time perhaps hire your own security. Why all the hype over a machine in an awful nightclub?

Im not really a fan of violence but looks like the person taking the photos was stirring the pot, and when some people are stirred they get violent. If they did bash that person then i wouldnt have much sympathy. in my eyes that sorta thing is pretty much the same as picking a fight with someone.
That fella standing infront of the police van looks like that where’s wally fella.

Like most people I would expect not to be physical assaulted regardless of the occupation of the assaulter. There is no legitimate reason to threaten violence other than repulsing violent attack. Bully boys.
