  • Unverified Report: Guard Tries to Steal Baby

    Consumerist (a "consumer advocacy" blog) has a new target to wage war on: Security personnel.

    Now, this came from a myspace blog of all things, but illustrates the new problems that we're going to encounter more and more of. People who believe that all security guards believe themselves power-tripping Gods, and will want to "take them on," then write a blog about it and become e-famous.

    In this event, a "wal-mart security guard" asked a woman to turn her baby over to him because of a "Code Adam."

    99% of the comments on Consumerist advocated violence against the guard.

    With the rise of people like Brett Darrow, who was previously trolling Officer.com and subsequently banned, who go out of their way to setup and video tape police encounters till he finds one worthy of media release...

    I expect it to happen to security based on the anger over Best Buy and Circuit City's "show me your receipt" policies. The people who have the most hate about this are 20 year old college students with the expendable income and time to instigate such things.

    Some times it's better to error on the side of safety than to do nothing at all and then find yourself in deep doo do later because you did nothing at all.

      BS. If this had happened the news media would have been all over it. Everybody with a cell phone camera would have been selling/giving copies to the news media. Sounds like hate monger reporting to me.

        What is Walmarts policy regarding a code adam?
        ATTN. SPECOPS AND GECKO45 my secret username is CIDDECEP and I am your S2. My authorization code is Six Wun Quebec Oscar Fife. Your presence here is tactically dangerous and compromises our overall mission parameter. Cease and desist all activity on this board. Our “enemies” are deft at computer hacking and may trace you back to our primary locale. You have forced me to compromise my situation to protect your vulnerable flank. This issue will be addressed later.

          When I was there, the entire facility got locked down. No one with a child was to leave. Of course, non-sworn personnel (the greeter) are directing this lock down which means that they have no legal authority to tell anyone to stay put, unless they're a suspected thief.

            At the Wal-MArt in my hometown, they lock the doors down and call the PD. So they have sworn authority on-site within minutes.

              Thank god for this CA p.c. I know it's saved me a few times.

              490.6. (a) A person employed by an amusement park may detain a
              person for a reasonable time for the purpose of conducting an
              investigation in a reasonable manner whenever the person employed by
              the amusement park has probable cause to believe the person to be
              detained is violating lawful amusement park rules.

              ...

              (c) In any civil action brought by any person resulting from a
              detention or an arrest by a person employed by an amusement park, it
              shall be a defense to that action that the amusement park employee
              detaining or arresting the person had probable cause to believe that
              the person was not following lawful amusement park rules and that the
              amusement park employee acted reasonably under all the
              circumstances.

                Let me get this straight. An amusement park person is authorized to cause a physical detention for a violation of an arbitrary code of conduct?

                Wow.

                  Yeah most retail store chains (Home Depot included) have code Adams in which the entire store halts and locks down until it is resolved.

                  Personally people I work around (college students) like me because I'm nice and even give them a few minutes to finish up if they are doing something in the computer lab. Also I don't break up vehicular make-out sessions as long as they keep their cloths on lol.
