  • Wal-Mart Security Tases and Detains Robber

    http://www.wkrn.com/story/24413538/r...suspects-crash

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
    It was a wild ride in Antioch Friday morning after a security guard chased down two alleged robbery suspects.

    It began at the Walmart located on Hamilton Church Road when the security guard saw two men leaving with a cart full of merchandise, presumably unpaid, just before 1 a.m.

    The guard first attempted to stop the suspects in the parking lot. One suspect fled on foot and the other jumped into a gray Pontiac.

    Excessive I think. Since when does Walmart LP carry TASERs?

      Contract guard perhaps?

          Sounds like it 'got personal' after suspect backed up car and pinned guard.

          Once the guard had "his own reasons" I guess it would be OK for him to pursue suspect for said reasons.

          What if he had been injured by suspect's use of car? Ain't like Walmart is gonna pay much, much less do much to capture suspect.

          Now he can file lawsuit against some slum-rat for millions of dollars of "pain and suffering".

            Thats what I was thinking. Walmarts around my area dont contract security services.

              Exactly!

              It's hardly worth it...I don't incredibly agree with what the guard did professionally, as it says the guard caught up with him a mile away. The second the guy leaves property, that's it, he becomes the police department's problem...Security is an Agent of the Owner.

              Having said that, like you stated at the beginning, Squid...It was personal being as the piece of trash pinned the guard with his vehicle, so I can understand the guy's mind set and have no problem with it on a personal level.

                Securitas was contracted, but maybe U.S.Security Associates.

                  Most stores like Walmart, Sears and Belks have in-house loss prevention here in Florida. Walmart does have a contract company that patrols the parking lots and perimeters. Mostly there to be seen, assist in information and help bring in shopping carts when the return bins get full. As far as I know they do not do anything in regards to retail theft or any problems in the parking lots. They are for O&R duties and nothing more. Where this guard was working and what the laws and or polices are I do not know.

                  But you can have retail security' when I was PD and had to transport some of these perps they had everything from shanks, box cutters and mace on them. A few LP personnel ended up going to the ER on occasion. These thieves are willing to cut you for some Nikes or an arm full of cheap shirts off the rack.

                  Over zealous, got personal or just stupid?

                  What was involved here I am sure will be figured out after the investigation.

                    I've seen some instances where Walmart has hired contract security to work plainclothes in stores. When working contract they are required to follow the policies and procedures the same as in-house LP.

                      Squid,

                      You are WRONG. It's not personal. Based on your postings, it's ok to do whatever you feel like, and not be responsible to your employer (or the public).

                      You are a walking law suit.

                        It has been pointed out a number of times to Squid that he is a walking lawsuit. I have serious doubts that he even works in the security industry.

                          I'd really like to know of this was a plain clothes LP staff or walmart or a contract guard that got involved.
