Taser Wielding Atlanta Security Guard Darien Long Fired

March 20, 2013 at 12:15 PM ET – Darien Long earned the nickname “Kickass Mall Cop” by his supporters after a video of the Atlanta Metro Mall security guard using a taser on a woman went viral. But now Long, who is a property manager at the indoor shopping center, will be looking for new employment.

In an interview via Skype with Right This Minute shot on March 19, 2013, Long explained that he had been let go from his job. The interview took place after one of long’s latest taser videos went viral, below is our transcript of Right This Minute’s interview:

Long spoke with Right This Minute about the details of his employment release, and his expectations for the Atlanta Metro Mall after he will no longer serve as security:

RightThisMinute: I understand that you just got some pretty bad news.

Darien Long: Oh yeah, I won’t be working here. My last day of work is March 31st.

RightThisMinute: Is that a result of this video?

Darien Long: I think it was a result of a lot of things, the publicity… It’s not one thing, it’s all things.

RightThisMinute: Were you shocked, were you surprised when you were let go?

Darien Long: No. I mean, you could kind of see the writing on the wall. Two of the vendors actually leaving, revenues are down. There’s a whole bunch of stuff going on.

RightThisMinute: Darien what do you think is going to happen after March 31st when you’re done working there?

Darien Long: Within two or three days, the drug dealers will start to come back in, once they know I’m not there.

RightThisMinute: Darien you know what you may do next, are you going to continue to stay in security and continue to try and clean up Atlanta?

Darien Long: I’m gonna look for a job. After these interviews and these videos, and the people in the industry thinking that’s not really really professional, and people more concerned about their liability than what’s going on, It may make it particularly tough for me to get another job in this field. I don’t know, we’ll see.

Video – Geoffrey Mookie MC Mooks Best Freestyle Rap 2013

March 16, 2013 at 6:25 AM ET – You never know just what kind of talent you will find on the subway. Such is the case when riding the Caboolture railway line in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, Australia. Geoffrey Mookie who hails from the aboriginal community of Maningrida in Australia is better known by his stage name MC Mooks. Watch as he beatboxes, hits an improvised drum beat, and drops 16 bars while riding the train.

Watch the video:

A number of Youtube commenters suggested that the “beat” in this video was not created by the rapper pounding on various parts of the train, and possibly came from a different source. Several days after his first video went viral, MC Mooks uploaded an updated video to prove his sound backdrop was 100% real:

Raw Video – Drunk Bully Knocked Out at SXSW 2013 Austin

March 15, 2013 at 5:21 PM ET – You know what they say about karma… Thursday night on 6th Street in Austin, Texas at the South by Southwest 2013 Festival, a bully that appeared to be more than a bit tipsy earned himself a swift bit of justice. In the video uploaded to Youtube, a young man in camouflage shorts can be seen slapping other eventgoers, and whistling while attempting to bait them into a fight.

One man in the video can be seen pleading with the bully, first holding his hands together in prayer before holding up the peace sign with each hand. Instead of calming down, the bully sucker punched the man asking for peace. Unable to stand by and watch any longer, one of the spectators dispensed the bully while yelling “BOOM.”

March 3, 2013 at 4:48 PM ET – Can you remember what you were doing as a six year old? Whatever it was, it probably can’t top the battle performance by six year old B-girl “Terra” of the London-based breakdancing collective Soul Mavericks.

The pint-sized breaker was added to the Soul Mavericks roster in 2012, at the age of five. In the following video, Terra can be seen competing in the “Baby Battle” division of the Chelles Battle Pro competition held in an Eastern suburb of Paris, France on Saturday, March 2 2013. The sparks begin to fly a minute into Terra’s performance (wait for it), when she lets her competitor know that she’s not quite finished:
