This is insane!
I don't know what messed up laws you have over there, but I worked in Security for over 15 years and this is criminal in the UK.
In the UK these "officers" would be charged with impersonating a police officer, and they can also be charged with unlawful imprisonment, harassment,
assault... their company would be shut down overnight.
Security staff in the UK have NO RIGHT to detain or arrest anyone beyond the "citizens arrest". This is why we have governed and publicly funded
police forces with no chance of corporate corruption of the force. That is their job. A security officer is there to prevent loss and report crime,
These are not security, they are private mercenaries acting as privately funded police - something no democracy should EVER accept.
If this story is true, this really is a wake-up call IMO. People need to start asking questions right now and start protesting against this.
Alas, I think the American public is STILL too preoccupied with American Idol and Snookie to be able to get off their fat arses and actually have a
thought about where their country is going.
I'll repeat what I've said before in recent posts - the USA had a silent coup a long time ago. Your country is not run by the government, it's run by
the military, corporate interests and bankers. If you still don't think that today, just wait another couple of years and you'll know it.
Edited to add -
When I say "no chance of corporate corruption" I obviously mean "less chance". We do have massive corruption here with police forces up and down the
country, taking bribes from News International etc. The chain of command is obviously ineffective or also corrupt, and the IPCC (Independent Police
Complaints Commission) is widely viewed as being a veneer of "doing something" when they are pretty much infiltrated with the same kind of corruption
If that's what it's like in the UK, with publicly funded police, I can only imagine what an unregulated "private police" force in the UK would be
