You know what, it really wouldn't surprise me if this was merely a T-Mobile Viral Campaign. The way he acts, all that he does, it's not as if he set the place alight or even tried to.
Also, when are the police THAT quick to respond to anything?!
But if it is real, then fair play to him. More people seem to be standing up against things these days, tearing the hypocrisy of it all down with them.edit on 3-7-2012 by b6x87 because: (no reason given)

It sure takes the police in the UK quite awhile to arrive on-scene to defuse the disgruntled man. Its not like this building was out in the country in a desolate location.
It makes me CRINGE to wonder how many people an insane or angry raging madman could have SLAUGHTERED with a knife or an axe before the UK police would arrive there to defuse the situation.
They in the UK have been DISARMED and made completely DEFENCELESS against raging madmen and it takes the police there forever to arrive to out-of-control situations. That is surely one place I would NOT want to live while being unarmed.
SIGH for the UK. With the UK police taking this long to arrive to a common well-populated area as this, imagine how long they would take to arrive to a less populated and common area in which a madman or a viscous gang is SLAUGHTERING innocent DEFENCELESS people. Woe to the UK for allowing themselves to be disarmed. I feel bad for them.
When SECONDS COUNT, the UK police are SEVERAL MINUTES away...

I had T-Mobile's service for almost 5 years and I know just how this guy feels. Seriously. He probably had to walk around holding his phone like the Statue of Liberty just to get enough signal to make a call and it drove him to the brink of madness.
“Late on the night of December 23rd, Sergeant John Banister of the 14th Cavalry Group found himself meandering through the village of Provedroux, southwest of Vielsalm. He’d been separated from his unit during the wild retreat of the first days and joined up with Task Force Jones, defending the southern side of the Fortified Goose Egg. Now they were in retreat again. The Germans were closing in on the village from three sides. American vehicles were pulling out, and Banister was once again separated from his new unit, with no ride out.
A tank destroyer rolled by; somebody waved him aboard and Banister eagerly climbed on. They roared out of the burning town. Somebody told Banister that he was riding with Lieutenant Bill Rogers. “Who’s he?” Banister wanted to know. “Will Rogers’ son,” came the answer. It was a hell of a way to meet a celebrity.
An hour later they reached the main highway running west from Vielsalm. There they found a lone soldier digging a foxhole. Armed with bazooka and rifle, unshaven and filthy, he went about his business with a stoic nonchalance. They pulled up to him and stopped. He didn’t seem to care about the refugees. “If yer lookin for a safe place,” he said, “just pull that vehicle behind me. I’m the 82nd Airborne. This is as far as the bastards are going.”
The men on the tank destroyer hesitated. After the constant retreats of the last week, they didn’t have much fight left in them. But the paratrooper’s determination was infectious. “You heard the man,” declared Rogers. “Let’s set up for business!” Twenty minutes later, two truckloads of GIs joined their little roadblock. All through the night, men trickled in, and their defenses grew stronger.
Around that single paratrooper was formed the nucleus of a major strongpoint.”
Unfortunately that is true- he hardly won the battle, much less the war. The injustice system will quietly process him to be assimilated into the statistics which say you can't stop the machine,
