There is a lot of online debate about that telekinetic girl in the coffee shop in New York. The HeliX group was talking about it today at school - someone suggested that we have a 'coffee protest' and all go together to the coffee shop and just sit and have coffee together, human and mutant students. With lots of camera phones to take video and show people that mutants are not as scary as they think.

As for the video itself, I am not sure what to think. It is not fair for the girl that she is treated like the monster just for being angry, but as someone who is always having to control my emotions and my powers so I do not hurt people, it can be frustrating to see someone using their powers in anger like that. Especially against someone who is not a mutant themselves. Especially since for those of use who are more visible, things get harder. People in my class were staring at me and whispering again today.

If that was her manifestation though, because she looked absolutely shocked and surprised when it happened, then she didn't know about needing to control anything. On the other hand, once she knew she had powers, she learned control of them DAMN fast.

This video is sparking lots of conversation, but something's not sitting right with me.

Artie and I spent quite a lot of time with that video once Doug forwarded to the team. If someone caught it with their phone, why does it have several camera angles?

....huh. you're right. it does. I hadn't consciously noticed that before.

if it was on a phone, it definitely shouldn't have that. also, it seems like it was running video BEFORE the incident occurred. otherwise it would have started without us being able to see the initial incident.

Yeah. There's some pretty hinky camera angles and the video quality is too good. Scared customers in a coffee shop won't hold thier phones steady like that.

Even if the video is set up, I am still wondering if the girl is alright. I am guessing her face must be pretty well known by now. The clip has been making it's way around the web at topspeed.
