    Security guard robbed, beaten

    [email protected]
    A security guard working the overnight shift was robbed and beaten before daybreak this morning in northeast Charlotte.

    Police say the guard was on duty about 5 a.m. at a business in the 4500 block of The Plaza when he was approached by four men. One suspect was armed with a handgun.

    The security guard said the four attackers beat him and stole several items. The victim was treated at Carolinas Medical Center for minor injuries. Police did not get a description of the suspects.

    Its not how we die that counts.....
    Its not how we lived that counts....
    all that matters is how we saved that one life that one time by being in the right place at the right time....

    You have got to wonder....

    If the guard was armed, and had a bullet resistant vest on, would this happen. Maybe he had the above listed equipment and was ambushed.

    But more than likely, he was unarmed, probably didn't even have a radio, and was just a sitting duck for something like this to happen.

    Do you thing his guard company is going to change anything because of this, like give him the equipment he needs to stay safe. I don't.
