Really its starting to FILL UP ATS with story after story like this
only good thing here was after harrising teh poor guy they did let him go and even offered him a job of a type.
BUt FACT is this could have easly been taking care of ON SITE . I understand brinks worry's and to call teh law but once searched finding NO weapon and FINDING the application for brinks on him at that point it should have been sorry to bother your sir no need to take him in and arrest him even if they let him go a few hours later

I can understand how this can happen.

Man, Ive seen thugs trying to approach Brinks officers before, they dont play games.

They dont have time to chat, never know who has a bad motive. The young man could have easily stood by the driver side window and called out to him or waited for the officer that usually stands outside while one is inside getting the money.

He just learned his first lesson in being a brink officer

Sharp was hoping to find a job with Brinks security. He had already applied for a job with the company but decided he wanted more information about the day-to-day details of driving one of the company's armed trucks. And what better way to gather information than going straight to the source? So he went up to a driver inside one of the company's vehicles and knocked on the window.


What better way to gather information than going straight to the source?
Uhh, the internet, writing them an email, or maybe giving them a call? Yes this is a bit over the top, but ignorance and smart ass-ery has it's price in the post 911 4th Reich.

ATS is getting filled up with these types of news stories, especially today. I got stuff to do but new stories keep popping up as I'm trying to get off here.

If a guy is seriously dimwitted enough to approach an armored truck and start pecking on the window--for any reason at all--then the only place he should be applying for a job at is McDonalds.

AGAIN for the 1000 time I never said brinks was wrong to call the law I SAID the law after searching the guy ON SITE (you know they did) Should have said sorry sir you are FREE to go)
Maybe adding in its not a good idea to knock on brinks windows asking for job info

Ya right, 20 years ago this would be perfectly fine. I don't even have to read the story. This country is going to hell in a hand basket.

you guys should read what happened


www.wvgazette.com...
The driver told police that a man with a gun came up to the truck, tried to rob him and then the man walked away.

Police located Kieon Sharp, 18, who fit the description the driver gave police near the Clay Center shortly after the alleged robbery attempt and took him in for questioning. A police dog was used to look for a gun, but no weapon was found.


By the time the cops got there the kid was gone and they found him somewhere else. They did not arrive on the scene with some kid trying to talk to the driver. All the cops knew is that someone tried to rob the brinks truck and acted on that.

I once had to go to an ATM at 3 a.m. before catching a flight. I pulled up and an armored car was just in front of me. The guards looked my way and said it would be just a moment while they refilled the machine. This was a large ATM at a large bank, and my wife used to work at a similar bank, so I know how much money was in the machine and in the refill satchel. One guard then proceeds to go down on one knee and lower his head into the machine with his back to me, while the other guard turns his back and walks back to the truck.

Idiots.

People get killed in convenience stores for $50 and some cigarettes. These trained men turned their back on a stranger with several hundred thousand in cash at 3 a.m. in a back lot of a bank!

I have to admit, the thought did cross my mind.


In other words, working for Brinks does not mean you have any common sense or intelligence.
They just panicked and didn't know what to do. Kudos for the young man having the cahones to walk right up to them. I hope he is richly rewarded for it.

I sure can't fault the kid for his creative approach and sheer gumption to get out there and try. I'd sure hope nothing lasting comes out of it for him. It was a hard life lesson in what is appropriate or isn't to a situation. Like..oh... walking up to a rolling bank vault, unannounced and without clear intent....expecting them to be friendly and open to a chat. lol... Oh Well.. All's well that ends well and no one got hurt. I say they give the kid a job just for showing how serious HE is about putting foot to pavement in the search for one.

You know what, it was kind of stupid. Sorry.

I have never applied for a job by knocking on someone's window.

Back in the day I walked up to lots of cops all over the place and asked them about their jobs. Most were happy to tell me all about their grind as long as I posed as a police hopeful. A few were total douchbags and either ignored me outright or told me to buzz off.

Got the same from EMT's and paramedics too.

I guess a two year community college degree and a union makes them better than the rest of us?

Anyway, I wonder if I did all that today as a kid would they have just tased me and locked me up?

The kicker is that these Brinks slackers arent even real cops. They're just mall cops who took a basic pistol class.

But they are responsible for a cool million or so in cash! A cop or paramedic isn't constantly looking over their shoulder like a guy sitting on a truckload of cash.


In fact, a cop also has at least twice as much training, so he can afford to give you a little more latitude. The armored car guy absolutely must maintain the upper hand at all times, because he doesn't have the skills to recover once he's in trouble.
