Marduk Fans Allegedly Pepper-Sprayed at Los Angeles Show

The Gauntlet reports that fans at a Marduk show were pepper-sprayed by an overzealous security guard at Royal Hall in Los Angeles. Halfway through Marduk's set, a fan began trying to set a bible on fire inside the club. When venue security was alerted, they pepper-sprayed the fan. As everyone knows, the tiny spray droplets from the spray spread out, and more than just the intended target were hit. Soon after, Marduk left the stage, and the choking fans exited the area for about ten minutes while the venue cleared out. Marduk later re-took the stage, but the band was not happy with security for the way things were handled.

That was really sh**ty. If some dude was creating a fire hazard then make him put the fire out. There was no need for pepper spray.

Meh I'm not a christian but come on what purpose does burning a bible serve? However the security definetly could have handled the situation better.

cruor: Bible burning is really more about "making a statement" than anything else.

Noyes: I was thinking the same thing when I read the article. He easily could've killed people with that dumbass stunt.

I got that but I dont understand the whole idea of bein so riled up against something that doesn't directly threaten you (like christianity) to a point where you burn a symbol of it in public. I dont know I guess my mindset is too relaxed to understand.

cruor I think it is because of what that f***ed up religions has done. they have killed people and religion has ended up bringing us to the dark ages before and they could probably do it again. o and just think about what technologies we could have if it wasnt for religion there are somethings we could do back then that we still cant do today.

I'm tired of this arguement... Did the religion itself do these things or did people do it? Religion is just a tool not the brain.

Yeah, true, but I wouldn't say that we haven't caught up on that 1000 years, considering that was 3000 years ago.

The kid deserved it. He could have started a fire! I will say, though, that security may have been a bit too proactive there. As you can tell, I take no sides.
