They are trouble-makers looking for trouble and filming it.


Troublemakers? Sure. But not lowlifes.

Several friends and I at age 15 were out harassing the police cars on patrol and playing cat and mouse with them, tossing rocks, etc., and staying just out of their sight and reach. At some point they got bored and went away, so we walked to a convenience store and called the police on ourselves to get them back in the neighborhood to screw with them some more! We were bored kids testing our boundaries, and not realizing the severity of our actions. Something like that could get a kid killed these days, and if they survived they could get anything from a tazing and a beatdown to a terroristic threat and indefinite detention! Times have drastically changed, and not for the better.

No doubt.
When I was in middle and highschool people would always bring their cameras and it was a fad/joke that any time a camera was left unattended some goofy class clown would put it down his pants and snap a picture of his junk/moon the camera. It wasn't my style of humor, but I have seen people do it many times.

Nowadays the person getting the film developed and the person who pulled the prank would probably both be labeled as child pornographers and have to let the neighbors know when they moved into the neighborhood.

Kids are not allowed to be wild or get into mischief anymore.

I get the impression that the recent media fiasco with Zimmerman and Trayvon has only fueled new and pre-existing fires of doubt,anger,suspicion and of course racism in a lot of people....That is the main issue and complaint I have had personally with that case,The media botched that one,as usual for ratings...whatever gets hits,no matter the consequences.

You could say that both parties involved here,It could go anyway,the security guard/cop and the teens,were both in the wrong depending on your point of view.

The teens should not of been "loitering", filming outside of an establishment that states rules against it,filming the guard...Some have said possibly baiting him to retaliate.

The teens were speaking politely and remaining calm...Some of the places that I have lived,In Philadelphia for instance...The kind of places you would be considered extremely lucky to have any kind of respect like what those boys showed that cop.

The "Cop" over reacted and overstepped his boundaries by lashing out the way he did....One thing I found curious was why he insistently asked for their I.D.'s ...he goes "your filming me,I want to know who you are" something along those lines...almost as if he was paranoid/had something to hide?

I am sure that I am probably over analyzing things but never the less I found that a bit odd.

End of story no matter if the guy was a security guard or a legitimate police officer he should of never acted the way he did,it was wrong,cut and dry,period.


Off-Topic -

Are things getting so bad lately with rumors of war,Unemployment,Media hyped disinfo,racial profiling,A bad economy,Raising food & Gas prices straining working America and worldwide alike,that everyone is a tad on edge...Something in the air???

Are there security guards at many WalMarts? I have never seen one at the WalMarts around here. Not security in this sense, maybe loss prevention.


I have seen pretty heavy security at some walmarts in Philly in comparison to walmarts an hour out towards the suburbs.I think most stores near/inside cities have a lot more security ,around the holidays as well I have noticed more security.
