I hate the places and they drive me nuts. Apparently it does push a lot of people over the edge, when they actually go there for a party. The fact that they had armed security apparently didn’t stop parents from going there. I sure wouldn’t take kids to a restaurant that needed security to carry guns.
Having been an armed guard, I bet that guy was fired. He should count himself lucky he wasn’t arrested for brandishing a firearm.
You never draw your weapon unless you are planning to shoot someone, and you’d better damn well never shoot anyone unless you’ve already been shot! You most certainly DO NOT point it at unarmed children!
Armed Security Officers are NOT Police. They/We cannot act as police and are most certainly not protected by the laws that allow police officers to act as they do.
I don’t blame the guy one bit. Have you ever been to a Chuck E. Cheese? What seems like thousands of swarming, pizza grease coated children, all of them coming down with runny noses and missing at least one shoe streaking about while they giggle and scamper around in tubes like soda fueled mice while you’re surrounded by steampunk animatronic animals shreiking bizarre music at you while lights flash everywhere. It’s like a suburban version of Fear and Lothing in Las Vegas in there.
The one they mention in the article on the south side I used to work next to. EVERY night the police were called for one massive fight or another, until they stopped serving beer. I hear that now it’s only once every weekend night that the police show up.
