Originally posted by paraclete1I work as a Security Guard for a snack cake company and there's really not much of a threat, but in this day and age, I always have to keep in the back of my mind that when an angry terminated employee returns with a gun, I'm going to be the first target because of my "percieved" authority.

It is only logical: If cop's hate to be photographed and recorded as they perform their duties as our tax paid servants, then there is a reason for it: The cop's hate to be filmed and recorded because they OFTEN, commonly, abuse the law and the Rights of the citizens and they know it ' looks bad ' on YouTube or a local TV station. They HATE oversight of any kind...because they use methods that are either illegal or abusive of rights and know that the citizens word will always fail unless there is PROOF.

We're not armed. In fact, the company made it very clear that we have all the arrest authority of a civilian. But stressed, they didn't want us to do anything like that since they didn't want to face any potential law suits. We're supposed to call management.
But society has been brought up to believe if someone is in a uniform, they must have some kind of power.
...In the event that your workplace was attacked by an armed assailant, I would recommend that you take cover just like everyone else...
