Dominique Strauss-Kahn Video of Dancing Security Guards

There's still no explanation for why the security guards were dancing at the Sofitel following the hotel maid's report that she was assualted by Dominique Strauss-Kahn. (Background here.)

But now the video is available. (Also below.) The dance lasts 13 seconds, not 3 minutes as originally reported. [More...]

    WATCH: Video of Strauss-Kahn leaving scene of alleged N.Y. rape

    Two summers while in college, I also moonlighted as a security guard for Pinkerton to make a little money for dating.

    Sometimes I carried a gun, sometimes not (officially.)  
    It gets lonely and boring.  Sometimes I danced (remember I was 20) or sang.  I didn't have to have a particular reason.

    one them just got engaged. Maybe they both got raises. Maybe they were told they could go home early.

    Who knows what they were reacting to or talking about?
    Were they asked?

    As shown, to me this video is evidence of absolutely nothing.

    The author alludes to some sort of implication but doesn't bother stating what that implication is, just that's it's 'unexplained'.  

    Never-mind the 'until proven guilty' non-sense we are to adhere to.  This video proves something, just not enough for the author to take a stand, but enough to publish it.  I guess we are to draw out own conclusions...

    The omnipresent double standard...


    I'm not sure that's even dancing. One guy (none / 0) (#3)

    bear hugged another and then the time lapse of the video makes it look like he's either dancing/lurching/having a seziure.
