I'd of thought they would have acted like an airbag.

One down.

....and ?

Zero tolerance means zero tolerance!

I call shenanigans. He could never run with his pants sagging like that.
 
2011-02-20 09:00:14 AM  
What's the problem? Saggy pants never = good citizen, anyway.
 
2011-02-20 09:01:38 AM  
Sounds like early retirement for the parents.
 
2011-02-20 09:02:02 AM  
Do you know what your policy is on chasing?" the investigator asked.

"The policy on chasing for Valor is that we're not supposed to, unless it's some sort of life-threatening thing," the guard replied.
and... unfortunately... this punk ass's parents will be rich biatch because of that recorded statement.

Did he trip over his saggy pants?

Teen dies after running waddling into traffic while being chased by mall security for saggy pants

FTFY

The company policy on chasing is significantly less relevant than the family policy on fleeing.

You parents would have to be joined in that action as an essential party.

Break out your checkbook

fta "What kind of dress code was is that he violated?" asked an FHP investigator.

"Basically, his pants were below or sagging where his underwear were showing and that's not allowed on property," answered a security guard.

"Do you know what your policy is on chasing?" the investigator asked.

"The policy on chasing for Valor is that we're not supposed to, unless it's some sort of life-threatening thing," the guard replied.
 
2011-02-20 09:07:24 AM  
So how many points do you get for hitting that?
 
2011-02-20 09:10:16 AM  
This is probably going to be a big pay day for the parents.

Can we get those security officers to come to Texas for some dress code enforcement?
 
2011-02-20 09:13:18 AM  
I'm just wondering where he bought his saggy pants?
 
2011-02-20 09:13:55 AM  
He was violating mall policy and continued to do so after being warned.
He resisted being detained over the flagrant violations.
He was stupid enough to run into traffic.

The mallcops should have warned him once and asked him to leave.
Then they should have called OCSO to have him trespassed. Waterford Lakes is big enough that there is NO chance there wasn't a deputy within a mile or so.
The mallcops definitely shouldn't have chased him for a non-criminal violation.

I'm calling it 50-50 here. Since the kid had already displayed minimal evidence of being a useful human being, we can rule out the $20 million thing straight away. I figure that (assuming he actually got/kept a job and remained out of prison/juvie for life), they could count on 50 years of useful labor at around an average $25,000 per year in today's dollars. That's $1.25 million. At 50% responsibility, that's $625,000. Since lawyers get around 50% for a total contingency case, throw the family $312,500 and be done with it.

Do us a favor and run into traffic for some petty matter and get killed, you will not be missed.

From the comments secction

The original articles had in fact stated that the kid was in fact warned on several occassions due to violating the dress code and flying gang colors. According to the original article reports , Security called OCPD to file a ( Trespass ) on the kid , and when OCPD arrived , it was discovered he had ( Marijuana ) in his possession and then ran from both security and the OCPD into the street and was killed. This report by WFTV makes no sense or is a complete exaggeration of the facts from the original articles that were posted in June / July of 2010. OCPD , Security were doing there jobs , so this lawsuit is complete B.S. Other articles indicate the kid had the dope on him with intent to " Sell ". So I guess to simply put this in other words , his family are looking for an easy fix by this suit. I really hope they don't get anything out of it !

Can we all agree that the real problem with saggy pants is that we don't like the kind of people who wear them?
 
2011-02-20 09:18:09 AM  
The driver should get a payment equal to the parents. For trauma not points.
 
2011-02-20 09:18:39 AM  
This is where the rule crazy meets the negative impact of its enforcement. It's just a pair of pants. You may not like it, but get over it. Kids run away, they don't wanna be in trouble. They are rebellious. And, speaking from personal experience, there is nothing more embarrassing than getting arrested in a golf cart..

Remember when people thought you could judge someone's character by whether or not their hair touched their collar? Good thing we're above that kind of stupidity now.

Anyway, people, they're farking PANTS. If someone's pants bother you that much, seek help.

I may have made a typo in my Boobies but I won't make that mistake in the sequil.

Hmmm...maybe if a certain kind of people wouldnt immediately run at the first sign of a security guard or police officer this kind of thing wouldnt happen.

Every episode of cops features a situation that goes something like this?

Cop: Why did you run?
Guy: I wuz scurrd..
Cop: of what?
Guy: I dunno, I was scurrd...
Cop: You have warrants? Got something on you?
Guy: no, I just scurrd...

You can also substitute "I aint did nothin" for "I was scurrd".

Stop teaching your children that running away is the proper response to the presence of authority and this kind of thing wont happen. Also, teaching them not to dress like criminals would help too.

exempli gratis: Can we all agree that the real problem with saggy pants is that we don't like the kind of people who wear them?


Yes, as long as we can all agree that it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with race. I see more white people than black `sporting that style' anyway. I've never met one at a trade show, I can tell you that much.

It's also weird how every time someone is vindicated after DNA testing for a crime they were convicted of but didn't commit, it's a certain kind of people.

No, the guards just acknowledged that they were knowingly violating their employer's pursuit policy, which means said employer just got a "Get out of settlement free" card.

Kinda sounds like it was a "life-threatening thing" to me. My compliments on the guards for trying to stop this poor misguided youth from engaging in such dangerous behavior.

Why is it that I can only visualize Emmett Kelly? Could it be some childhood memory of watching a baggy-pants sad clown clomping around the big top?

He just wanted to go to the mall and look like a fool.

Police state the suspect was 'looking like a fool'

Shouldn't the maker of the pants also be sued?
