    Greg- I agree with you. Security Officers are the most under appreciated. I am forced to stay later no matter what and still come in. I had a temp of 104.8 and I still had to come to work and was even forced to work a 15 hour shift. Its not an easy job as some people like to say. Its not the hardest job either. Im only 24. This is not what I want to do with the rest of my life. I just wish that people would have more respect for Security Officers. No one is better than the other. I wish more people would also have respect for Police Officers and Soldiers. Thank you for clarifying. (Im sure I spelt that wrong) LOL :) I also agree that some people should never have been hired, way too many red flags.

    Be nice to amused anonymous. Im tired of people coming on here and verbally abusing others for their beliefs, grammar, and opinions. Are your lifes that pathetic and boring? If so, get a new healthy hobby. And seriously Joseph, hun re read your comments before you post them. We all make grammar mistakes but proof read so it at least makes sense.

    Amused: It's amusing that you told Joseph to use proper grammar, yet you can't even spell the word correctly. Your stupidity reveals itself so readily you probably should refrain from correcting others.

    Rachael, Please do not misinterpret what I said. I never said that most or even many of the Security Officers are there because it's a power trip for them, but there are some. I too, worked security for 7-8 years, because I thought I was going to make a difference, but in the time I did do the work, I meet several people, that should have never been hired. In that time, as a contract security officer, I learned the company that Security Officer is contracted to, often really doesn't care about the Security Officer, in part because they have no investment in them as an Employee of their company - you get sick or hurt, to bad you still need to show up. Your relief can't make it in for what ever reason, too bad, you need to stay until someone does show up to relive you of duty. The simple fact is, that Security Officers, are one of the most abused jobs there is - on them is the burden of responsibility yet they are rarely ever paid, for that level of responsibility

    joseph- learn proper grammer. Not all guards carry guns, tasers, or stun guns. I know a girl who in unarmed and works graveyards.

    I am a Security Officer and I work the grave yards. Note the time. Im not in this field for a power trip. I am an unarmed guard. Im only in this field until the Economy picks up and I can either become a Police Officer or a Correctional Officer. We are there to deter, detect, and report. Im glad this guard is ok. I hope they catch his attacker.

    A security guard can use just enough force to stop a suspect from continuing, and it has to follow specific rules of escalation - anything more and it's starts wandering into abuse of force territory ( and to be quite frank, some people become security officers because it's a power trip for them, and these are the wrong people to give a gun or any other weapon to ). Because of liability issues, security companies, will only allow certain types of equipment. Because of liability issues, most contracting companies, take the standpoint that US airlines did prior to 9/11, and so will not allow security officers to carry anything - IOW, they use Security Officers like human video camera's, in the belief the presence of a security officer alone with deter people from crime, but this only works to keep honest people honest. I used to work security, and the time I caught a shoplifter, and reported it to police, the manager of the contracting company didn't want to press charges.

    The guard would have had the right to kill, if he had been given a chance, and by whatever means!
