    If that's the policy, that's the policy. No problem.


    That's a reasonable accommodation and what I would expect.


    Plot twist, but fine. He can come back some other time, off duty.


    Looks like that's what he decided on.


    <insert sound of record player needle scratching over the grooves>

    What?!

    Was his name Officer Blart?

    Good point, but let's not shoot him over it!

    I'd say the security guard completely over reacted and is going to have a big problem with his case.

    I wonder if he looks as dumb as he acted?

    All these jurisdiction turf wars do us little good. Just a while ago, 26 agencies responded to an "Active Shooter" event in NH as communications are still poorly cross-functional and so many self-responded w/o their agency call-out. Bubba-LEO1 calls Bubba-LEO2 on their cell and they jump in their car so they don't miss out. The "shooter" was already in custody and transported when news cameras were filming new arrivals gearing up with body armor and slung rifles from their trunks.

    The guy security guard will be fine.
    Once this is all settled the TSA will snap him right up.

    FYI, insisting that cops are diddlers isn’t building a strong case in favor of law enforcement.

    From what I read the security guard was a tool. Gun to the guy’s back is beyond extreme. Probably failed the academy physical and saw a chance to “show them”.

    That seems to be the "caliber" of person they attract for sure.

    I still think he's in for problems with this and I hope his driving habits are impeccable.

    So nobody watched the video, noticed the time gap, and questioned the narrative? Disappointing.

    This right here. The cop was committing a federal felony and furthermore admitted it. The security guard was absolutely right to tell him to gtfo of the building. Probably as a rent-a-cop didn't have the authority to attempt to detain the guy, though.

    Hardly, Bud, just pointing out that some of the cop haters here have some unusual fears/hatreds. A , "Show us on the doll where the bad policeman touched you", reference.

    You’re a bit fixated on cops molesting children.

    If you need to talk feel free to PM me.

    I guess we'll see when he goes to court. My bet is he will lose his job and be criminally charged and convicted.

    I also suspect he will have a difficult life around the town/county. Not that that is the right thing, just predicting human nature in the given circumstances.

    He may be "in charge" in the Social Security office, but the local deputies are outside that place. He didn't do himself or anyone else any favors by his over reaction.

    This is a hierarchy of power issue. I believe that LEOs lacking federal status are not exempt from the gun ban in federal buildings. Perhaps the security company did indeed teach this guard that only federal LEO credentials allow one to be armed in a federal office.

    Reminds me of Master Blaster in Beyond Thunderdome. "DISARM! DISARM OR DIE!" Maybe the cop needed to use his whistle.

    I love that they didn't like a cop being in the building with a gun, so they called more cops. That gun free zone is not working.

    I was thinking of the stupid laws in this state. I forgot it was a federal facility.

    Difference being, the ones that showed up would be there in the performance of their official duties, and therefore lawfully allowed to be armed in the facility.



    Personally, I’m not surprised by the guard’s reaction. I would fully expect that anyone attempting to gain entry to that (or any other) federal facility while unlawfully carrying a weapon would be chased out at gunpoint, at the very least.

    I know if security at my work saw that I had a gun, I’d be eating asphalt (at gunpoint) in record time.

    Oh come on. I've seen people here say that if a person is on your property, you should be able to shoot them. Not doing harm. MAYBE doing harm, but the instant you are on-property, you are fair game. (Obviously not in Mass, but. . . . )

    Seen others advocate longer sentences for those that kill dogs than people.

    Why can't we shoot cops that are not working???

    ;)

    Ideally, LEO are SUPPOSED to follow the same laws as ordinary citizens, except they're tasked with enforcing existing laws and keeping communities intact. I guess there are exceptions, like gun and magazine purchases, open carry, window tints, parking in emergency spots, and carrying in prohibited areas.

    I give this guy credit for deescalating the situation. Most knuckledraggers would've drawn fire in a second.

    Ok, Ok! I give. It is valid reason to shoot him. Or at least wing him.

    My town PD has a policy that cops on patrol can do personal errands within reason while on patrol. Going to a bank or a sandwich shop is ok, buying lumber at HD and transporting it in a cruiser will probably be frowned upon.

    Federal trumps city. Can an on-duty uniformed Boston City LEO go through security at Logan? And then again, well/nicely armed (MP5?) state police are on the other side (with Fido).

    The irony in all of this is hilarious.

    Gun Free Zones
    IRS
    Cop not getting special cop treatment
    Security guard going Rambo

    Seems like there was plenty of stupid to go around in this story.

    So a security guard did his job.
    Maybe now this cop know how it feels when LEO points their guns at suspects.....i mean citizens.
    Another point is.... Are these security guards suppose to take at face value that a person in a LEO uniform is there for all good intentions?
    i say good to the security guard. I dont think gun drawn down on him was a good idea but hey maybe he figured ....pissed off cop might shoot him because his feelings might be of the threatened nature...

    I dunno. I'm more than happy to pig pile on the rotten apples but what I saw on the video was a cop trying to cooperate with a lawful order to leave. Blart followed the officer out of the office and on into the elevator and held the door.

    On the other hand, come on. Medical leave? Go ahead and sue Blart for criminal stupidity, but don't ask me to believe you're traumatized to the point of being unable to work.

    The missing minute or so is the conversation where Blart said you can't have that here. It's tv - they trimmed the video to show the 10 or 20 seconds of video that they had time for. The whole segment wasn't even 3 minutes!
