haws83: The Muthaship: Go watch the whole video.  And did you not notice her taking a swing at him?


I saw him shove her first.  Looks like he was overly aggressive and a poor fit for a job interacting with the public.  Seemed like he went out of his way to escalate situations.


Exactly.  He seems much more interested in escalating so he can use his taser.

Not to defend the trash he has to deal with...there's just a way to do it where you don't have to pull your taser/gun every time.

I have a feeling things would escalate with those women even if he wasn't aggressive in his position.

He repeatedly goes in and out while they are just outside running their mouths.  Then he goes into the the "I dare you" posture about coming back in.

Restraint isn't taunting people you just kicked out.

Trust me I love nothing more than seeing some loudmouth threatening people get zapped.  I just think he is pressing the situation.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Nutsac_Jim: PsyLord: /not being racist with that comment, just that if someone has a cattle prod and is waving it at me, I'd back the hell up

After one gets paid for a decade or two simply for the trait of existing, some people get an increased level of value and just don't like being told what to do, no matter on whose property they are located.

They should have been blessed to have great grandparents who were slave holders. Then they could have gotten some generational wealth and they'd be the ones who could look down on people they've oppressed and ask, "why haven't you caught up yet?"


Are you telling me that you justify a culture of narcissism and sociopathy due to events that occured 3-5 generations before these people were born? I'm sorry, but opression alone does not cause people to degrade into things that would be an insult to animals to call them animals.

My great grandparents migrated to CA from OK during the great Dust Bowl era, lived in the same labor camp that was featured in The Grapes of Wrath, and harvested crops for a living.  EABOD you racist POS.


And I'm sure they were the nicest, colored-folk lovingest white people in Oklahoma. Now that you've stuck out in rage at the black racist, lets see you comment on one of the other biggoted things said in the thread. Since its obvious how much you despise it.

haws83: The Muthaship: I'm sure the clip of the incident between the woman and the guard is still out there somewhere.  You might want to watch it.  He spent a long time just trying to get her to leave by asking.

In all honesty, I don't care enough to look, but wouldn't that be the time to call the cops and have her arrested for trespassing?


I am guessing you are white and live in a very white area with no violent crime and a mild amount of property crime.  Either that, or you are completely blind to how real life outside your privileged box functions.

You really need to watch the entire first video.  That sound you call heartbreaking... it changes.  When you are done watching the video, if you think she didn't need to be tazed, you and I aren't going to like each other.

Fine. Then what do you think can be done to fix the narcissism and sociopathy that exist in the urban poor demographics. It has nothing to do with race- this is a culture thing- but sadly a plurality of those who fall within this cultural group are black, and the pop culture it created is marketed towards other blacks.

This is the second of third time in this thread. You don't have shiat on me cuz. Trust me. Leave me out of it and talk about the article. I'm not the subject of the piece.




You might even be an eskimo in French Guiana, for all I care. You are patently clueles about what the man had to endure, and neither the color of your skin or the GPS coordinates of where you live can erase the sheer dumbassery of your statements.

And do you know why you are called on your bullshiat? Because you spew bullshiat about stuff you know nothing about, and yet feel entitled to post assinine remarks chastising those who have to endure this level of bullshiat on their job on a daily basis.

ManRay: JackieRabbit: They don't say what part of Atlanta this mall is in, but in some areas, a taser would be lightweight.

I believe it is at Five Points. He is outgunned with the taser. The first video I saw where he used it, I thought "damn, now he's a sitting duck". I fully expected him to get rushed.

Actually, the GoPro is probably his best weapon.


No kidding. That camera's probably prevented him from getting a swarm beating or worse.

If you're at all interested in the subject of confrontation, escalation, levels of response and so on, you should watch his videos. They are textbook examples of how to do this job right down the line from how to speak, how to respond and how to obey the law so it lands on your side 100% of the time.

I've only ever seen one mistake from him (drew a non-lethal weapon before reasonable fear) and even that was minor. He should be teaching classes to cops and security guards in every major city. He's that good. Thunder Ranch should offer him a job toot sweet, and I'm not exaggerating.

After watching the entire video. I believe she did push him first, and when he pushed her back, she started swinging. If she was that worried about her children, she would have moved away instead of standing there posturing and throwing insults at someone trying to enforce the will of the mall itself, and probably just trying to do his job. He actually sounded rather nice, but firm up to that point. even accepting the slurs she tossed at him and telling her to move on.

The sound of the kids screaming when he knocks the woman out the door is heartbreaking.

He's a mall security guard actually doing his job and trying to keep some semblance of order in the place. Or would you rather just let folks run all over your business, selling drugs and robbing you left and right, scaring away customers. No, not because they're black, but because that's what happens in this part of Atlanta.

If we're talking about the same video that woman had it coming, and her kids were completely out of control yelling at the guard before it escalated. Nobody was an innocent bystander in the one I'm remembering.


Yep.  Watched the full video.  Dude says one thing to some loud kids, suddenly has two women inches from his face yelling at him about not talking to their kids.  He even tries to ignore the situation and they just keep escalating.  Finally he tells them they're not welcome at the mall and to not enter, then goes inside.  You'd think that would be it.  A not-dumb person at that point would have just said "yeah I showed that security guard who's boss" and wandered off.  Instead the dumb baby factory not only tries to enter the mall, she starts swinging at the security guard.  Hell yeah she's going to get tased, kids or no.  Hell I'm surprised he didn't tase her about two minutes earlier in the video.
 
2013-03-21 05:37:32 PM

DROxINxTHExWIND: Didn't realize he swung. But that was after Blart came over there like Mr. Toughie talking about "get out". If he had grounds for them to be removed from the property there was a way to handle that without it escalating like it did. He was already cranked up to eleven when he approached them.

2013-03-21 06:45:40 PM
Dro, seriously you are doing a disservice to yourself and your cause.

First of all, most Farkers ridicule and laugh at racists and other bigots. Most of the bigoted comments you refer to are by known trolls who have long since been ignored.

Secondly, we do our best not to encourage trolls. Haven't you been paying attention at the rising number of people calling for simply ignoring WBC?

Third, there were roughtly 350k slave owners in the US historically. Southern states had between 30%-50% ownership, northern states much less. The point here is, most Americans living in the modern day cannot trace their roots to that time. Of those that can, odds are, their ancestors were not slave owners. As for my ancestors, they were too busy with the Ottomans at the time to care about you and yours.

Fourth, you seem to forget that a very small percentage of slaves that made it here were actually caught by the evil white man. They were caught, bagged, tagged, and sold by their brothers, but hey, blame the white man.

The screwed up thing is you don't seem like an idiot,  matter of fact, you seem fairly intelligent. Sadly you use the tactics and arguments of idiots and trolls, so don't blame us for treating you as such.
 
2013-03-21 06:49:01 PM
Forgot one point.
Don't blame me for what my father/grandfather/etc... did. You will never see me try to capture any glory for any great deeds my ancestry may have perpetrated, similarly I do not want any blame for any bad deeds.
Judge me as a man on the merit of my deeds.

Hopefully you can understand at least that, it seems what you are arguing for while shooting yourself in the foot playing the victim.

Well, that's the way it usually goes. You get someone actually determined to do his job and everyone starts worrying about liability and decrease in sales and -- poof! -- he's gone.

In a short time they'll be worrying about the liability and loss of sales due to the drug dealers and thieves coming back and complaining about the increase in store theft not to mention intimidation of prospective customers by the surly morons hanging around outside.

I once worked at a department store in a small mall and we were NOT allowed to chase thieves down -- because they might sue. (The news back then was full of a case where a thief had sued a store he stole from because the employee who chased him down used 'unnecessary force' to stop him.)

Many a security guard at malls have told me they're actually not allowed to do anything to catch a thief because of the real chance of the mall being sued.

Years ago, my older brother was a cop, a rookie, and took a second job at a convenience store, being newly married, just out of the military and a kid on the way. His boss informed him that cop or not, he was NOT allowed to bring his weapon in the store and NOT allowed to use a weapon if he was being held up.

He wore his backup weapon instead, strapped to his ankle. He told me that if it came down to his being shot for the money in that crappy store or blowing the thief away, he was going to do the latter. Even if it cost him his job.

I do love the part in the article where store owners were complaining about drops in sales and blaming it on the guard. I guess thugs and thieves spend money also. They obviously didn't consider shrinkage -- the amount a store looses yearly from theft.

When a mall turns into a street hangout, it isn't long before shops start closing because no one wants to go shopping somewhere that they have to argue just to get into. They don't want to eat at the dining area and listen to foul mouthed thugs squabbling away over everything and they don't want to run the chance of being harassed just trying to use the toilet. (Seemingly a favorite place for obnoxious thugs to hang out.)

Depending on the neighborhood, a security guard has to act in the way the locals understand. If they're used to mouthing off at each other, then you need to mouth off at them.

I know two malls which closed because they got taken over by street thugs and security was not allowed to do their jobs. So, several million bucks went down the drain because the owners were afraid of lawyers.

I do know of a chain grocery store in a real bad neighborhood which bolted one of the two entrances shut, to limit access and exit, put a lifeguard-like tower in front so security could watch the parking lot and hired in aggressive, armed security.

That place has been open for over 20 years now. They've managed to chase out the usual slackers who congregated in the parking lot and pi$$ed everyone off, have no problem chasing down and catching purse snatchers who liked to target single women going to their cars and a few hard core fellows with big mouths discovered that Security had no problem with taking them behind the store and beating the shiat out of them instead of calling the cops.

It seems that's all they understood. It apparently worked.

I used to deliver there now and then. I met the security guards and you just KNEW they didn't tolerate any shiat. I drove past the place awhile back, after an absence of 10 years, and to my surprise, found it still there, the lifeguard stand still in place and still doing a brisk business.

A couple of other stores in the area without such a hard core attitude were closed and boarded up.

The Muthaship: haws83: The Muthaship: Go watch the whole video.  And did you not notice her taking a swing at him?


I saw him shove her first.  Looks like he was overly aggressive and a poor fit for a job interacting with the public.  Seemed like he went out of his way to escalate situations.

I'm sure the clip of the incident between the woman and the guard is still out there somewhere.  You might want to watch it.  He spent a long time just trying to get her to leave by asking.


Then you call the po-po and have a trespass issued. You DO NOT TOUCH people as a security guard.

Still, Atlanta PD is probably hiring and this would make a great resume.

PsyLord: insano: kumanoki: With the sound off, it just looks like someone with a taser threatening innocent bystanders.

It...what? It is?

*sound on*

The sound of the kids screaming when he knocks the woman out the door is heartbreaking.

Come on. you're trolling right? They did this guy a favor letting him go. I feel sorry for the replacement who gets to deal with the 'innocent bystanders' and probably has to do it without a taser.

Maybe they can give the new security people cattle prods.  I've always thought those things were pretty menacing looking.  Not sure which I rather face: a cattle prod or a taser.

/not being racist with that comment, just that if someone has a cattle prod and is waving it at me, I'd back the hell up


Not racist at all. I actually make mooing sounds and snort like a cow whenever I have to walk around the crowds of a mall.

You need to watch his videos. The man is a past master and is ALWAYS in the right. In the tasering of the mom, she had been assaulting him and threatening for almost ten minutes. The police were already called. He didn't touch her once, and only shoved her after she chest bumped him, and  tasered her after she escalated to battery and punched him three times in the head.

He is A
MAZ ING at this.
