(KHOU Houston)   What's worse: Somebody trying to run over a triple amputee who is on duty as a security guard at an apartment complex, or the fact that the apartment complex is being protected by a triple amputee?   (khou.com) divider line 23

The primary job of most security guards is to call the cops.

Is the security guard's name, Matt?

I get that it's a complex for disabled and elderly people, and nothing against this guys abilities, but yeah it seems like they should employ able bodied people for security.

The guard was accompanied by his guard dog.

Uhh his primary job is to push a button for the gate when people come home, don't push the button when people who shouldn't be there try to enter, and call the cops when someone starts trouble.

Have you seen most security guards? The only ones who are fit are the cop wannabes.. And they're a little nutty in the head. This guy can be a gate guard just as well as anyone.

Well, considering how badass single amputees are.....

Pretty much this^

Or get the guy fitted with some artificial limbs so he's more mobile and can handle trouble makers easier.

I mean it takes some big clanking balls to try to keep the peace when you're at the mercy of, well, anyone who can kick you.

Well, the double amputee wanted double overtime. Not sure if this will be an improvement

LOL!!!

In the bad guys defense, the security guard does resemble a speed bump.

What's worse, submitter, or Hitler? It's a tossup.

But really, security guard is not exactly what you see on 24 or Prison Break. It mainly involves just sitting somewhere and buzzing people in. Good for this guy for not just sitting on his legless ass, and working. And good for him for keeping Da'Tyrone Chokesalot out of the complex.

Hopefully this guy gets locked up for a long, long time.

The problem is, most people assume that being a "security guard" means you're supposed to provide security when necessary, instead of just calling other people for help. They also assume that the title itself confers some kind of magical policeman powers that aren't as messy and icky as the lethal force needed to provide real-world security, so in many cases they will seek out security guards that are clearly incapable of protecting themselves, let alone anyone else.

/and then these people are shocked, SHOCKED that just because they demanded a combination of conditions that are impossible to meet, that everybody fails to rise to the challenge of meeting them all
//except for really skilled con artists that take them for a ride and then ditch them when they're needed
///look up how "Anti-Piracy Maritime Solutions," a security firm that specializes in "non-lethal" security against Somali pirates, actually functioned when a ship they were protecting was attacked

Poor guy lost three of his legs in an unusual accident.

Lump me in with the people amazed that someone thinks it's stupid to have a gate keeper be a triple amputee.

The dude isn't supposed to be Dirty Harry for the apartment complex. He's just a desk clerk. Call the cops when violence happens and buzz people through.

my first thought

you don't have to be very "capable" to guard an apt complex. if you have the ability to dial 911, you're golden

His training probably includes "don't get involved in physical confrontations - call the authorities".  So yeah, he's not supposed to physically kick people out of the lobby.  He can make a phone call just like anyone else so he can do the job.

He was only the loss of one more appendage away from being the "Dark Knight"

Agreed.  I think subby is either a dick, or just wanted to troll to get a green.

Worked with many amputees over the years.  Gotta friend who is a quad amp and works as a farm hand.  /pun intended
