It looks like he had one pipe inside another. That would be pretty hefty, Sched 40 or 80. At first I thought the pipe broke in half after he hit one of the guys, but after he comes up with two pieces, one section is as long as the original pipe.
He hit two guys wearing back packs. Although both guys saw him coming, neither took ofd his backpack to use as a shield.
Just like at the Dallas airport shooting, people see what he is doing but just stand around and watch. Then seem surprised when he runs at them.
I too wondered why people just stood there. Nobody did a thing. I feel like there are too many people out there that don't do a thing
A lot of it goes back to the mindset discussed here:
Most people do not mentally prepare themselves for anything like this, so they get stuck between the fight or flight mode and just stare. The brain doesn't recognize a threat, and then it freezes to the point that the guy can continue approaching and actually hit them before they are forced to act, and by then it may be too late.JMHO
