    According to another account, the victim was told "you have cheek to be working while the rest of us are not" before he was shot to death.

        I get the impression they are trying to suppress that. There are more than half a million striking security guards and they are overpowering the police with their rioting.

          I think, unfortunately, when I say "suppressed," I mean with the South African Military. I have a feeling that eventually, we will be deploying UN Peacekeepers to South Africa to quell that riot.

            Unfortunately, I agree. When that happens the public perception of what we all do will be so negative we may be looking for other jobs.

              I disagree with this dramatically effecting public perception of security officers. People know there is a distance between life in S.Africa and the U.S. Something like this in the U.S. would have already been responded to and probably put down. I dont see any big changes resulting in the U.S. from this. In my personal opinion, the way things are in S. Africa is so far from many countries... this is hardly newsworthy in the security industry... unless of course you are looking at an area contract.

                This would not affect our lives in the USA for certain, but there would be a new negative light on our business as a whole in international media if the U.N. actually had to bring an operation in to quell the civil uprising.
