If the comedians would have been shot, it wouldn't be their fault. The people who do the shooting bear all of the responsibility for who and what they shoot. If the security guards aren't careful with the power they've been granted, we'd better stop employing those people -- and get better ones.
Got it backwards.
Mr. Morrow seems unable to comprehend the situation, and gets it all wrong when he says "We had no intention of harming anyone" and "Lucky it was us and not Al Qaeda". In fact, those comedians were the lucky guys. I can assure you that they would have been shot unless they had been "under control" the second they stepped out of their vehicle, and whatever their intention might have been it would have been irrelevant at that moment. Security personel are not mindreaders and (in a live situation like this) will shoot you dead if you are perceived as posing even the slightest of possible threats.
