I work armed security in Tulsa Oklahoma. I patrol Government subsidized Housing projects, The Video below was made by a guy I know who works for another company that does the same type of security at the same type of places. He has been asking me for a while to come over and join his company. He told me to check this video out of the company. After seeing it, I dont know if I want to work in Gang infested areas with people like this as my backup. Anyway watch the video and have a good laugh

Armed Security Patrol officers aren't cool? Who says?

JD,
You could probably rely on your own senses on this one. It doesn't take much to make a slick video to sell a product, whether real or imagined. I respect all those in security positions as long as they do their job and try not to go beyond their particular training limitations and job description scope. Attempting to look like a LEO and being one may be two different things. Again, I appreciate most security assignments, armed or otherwise. They are my eyes when I can't be there. But when it comes down to it, they will call us when it's time to do some face time with the other side. Yes, armed security confronts the same morons we do, but being a LEO is, by all measures, something different altogether.....

TheSarge said everything I could say. I have respect of security until I see video's like that. There are reasons why they are not a LEO mainly because of the psych exam...LOL

Well in Oklahoma you have to pass an MMPI to get an armed license. Any way I Guess i kinda worded this wrong, I know this is dumb I should have just put as the topic. "yall have a good laugh", By the way I agree with both of you. To every body else, This is not a security bashing thread or a police bashing thread. It is not about whos job is more dangerous or who is better. The stuff about security and police on this site has been discussed to the max and to a point to where it is just retarded and childish to argue about. Who cares, security and police do a similar job, not the same. We all have jobs, making money and supporting our families, Thats all that matters. So watch the Video Have a good laugh AND TRY NOT TO TURN THIS INTO ANOTHER BITCH FEST !!!!

OKAY. To answer your question JD918, yes that was dumb. I appreciate the service that security officers provide, but this was a little ridiculous. It was funny though!

Basically all it shows is a suspect getting away from them, a guard headbanging while driving down the road and a crash that involved a security car.

THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY. I KNOW THOSE PEOPLE, AND DONT THINK TO HIGHLY OF THEM AT ALL. THOSE PEOPLE IN THE VIDEO NEED TO DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE, INSTEAD OF MESSING WITH THE CAMERA. I USE A CAMERS EVERY DAY, BUT IT IS FOR THE TATTOOS AND FACES OF GANG BANGERS, NOT FOR THE STUPID MYSPACE PAGE.

Looked to me like they eat a little more McDonalds than they should, can't drive a Crown Vic, and if the targets were out at 25 yards than I'd say they don't do too bad at shooting non-moving, paper targets that don't shoot back. Other than that I'd say way too many Security Guards have firearms -at least in my neck of the woods. Casinos need armed personnel, as do banks and other businesses with a ton of cash around.
We had an "older" armed security guard here in town who was sleeping on the job at a construction site and was "interrupted" by a burglar. Long story short - The suspect was handcuffed.... got away and after emtying an entire G19's magazine at the suspect... still handcuffed... the Security Guard shot him one time in a butt cheek. We found him getting rolled down the street by his girlfriend an hour later in a stolen wheel chair from the local hospital.

One thing that gets me about security people is that they will walk around with their badge clipped onto their belt for all the world to see. When I go out in public I keep that shite tucked. I don't want anybody to know that I'm a LEO without me telling them (and I don't do that unless I have to). Don't they realize that they are taking their lives in their hands by doing things like that. Some turd tries to rob the quickie mart or mcdonalds that they just happen to be in and see's that badge they're toast. The turd is gonna ghost them without thinking. Not to mention the whole gang thing of getting street cred by offing a LEO.

Good points devildog... I ALWAYS carry -most of the time in an IWB holster with my badge right next to the holster... even just to get the gas tank filled up the street. If my shirt happens to come up showing my gun then they see my badge too. Even when I go to court they ask me at the front door if I am carrying because they don't know. I always tell people, "I work for the city" ... if they press it then I tell them, "I take out the trash".

My fiance (even after a year together) still hasn't gotten used to the gun always being on. Even if I go down to the blockbuster (which is only half a mile from our apartment) i put my P99 in my waistband. Every now and then when I head to the office on a day off I'll carry exposed in a paddleback kydex but even then I have a habbit of covering it up. I've been in a convienence store on one occasion when a turd tried an armed robbery and I might have been shot in the back of the head if he's seen a badge. The morons in this video seem like the type that would get concealed carry permits and try and carry their weapons out with their little security shields like they were the real thing. Deal is that real LEO's don't advertise what we are. Number 1 we don't want the attention, number two if someone is acting stupid the element of surprise is a great weapon. JD if you hope to be a LEO someday, PLEASE don't be like these idiots.
