many of the Black members here are vicariously living through this security guard, because before many of them "made it out of the hood", they too were victimized by these types of thugs.
The real question is: what exactly has the Mall cop accomplished thus far in his campaign to "clean the community"?
If his approach is effective, then it should be demonstrably so, yet, every video he's dealing with the exact same people, he knows many of them by name because they've been such a nuisance for such a long time. So where exactly is the change if there's so much of the same?
even though I've pretty much made up my mind about the security guard, I will definitely continue to watch his videos, in efforts to determine what his long term goals are.
Come on Matt, youre better than generalizations like that, Its nothing wrong with making it out of "the hood" (Who really wants to be there?) and still wanting to see other Black people do better. I dont exactly think its considered living vicariously because on the flipside of that argument you are living vicariously through those d-boys and hoodrats who are mad at a Brotha for doing his job and doing something positive. Its definitely gonna take more than one fed up Black man and his camera and taser to clean the community but its definitely a start. Who knows it might be inspiring someone as we speak, hell after those kids saw their Momma ride the lightning wave maybe they will see that aint the only life to lead. I dont think he is dealing with the same people as much as he is dealing with the same type and demographic of people.
I take it that you didn't watch the last video I posted of him. Doing your job is one thing but he's abusing his power like Dey Dey
Abusing his power fam? If you play pus*yfoot with some people they will walk all over you, Id rather he take the "take no sh!t" aggressive approach than the subtle, passive approach of "Can you move please"......
But see that's where you are wrong, because as of this point his videos have produced no evidence of crimes being committed. All they have shown in this fu*k n*gga harassing people based on his own belief of a crime being committed. The fact of the matter is he is not the police, he is not an authority, he has no fu*king business getting up in peoples face and pulling out tasers on them in a public area. This is not about making excuses for people selling drugs, this is about the fool abusing his power and essentially believing he has the power to make a area he does not own a dictatorship. In video 5 he got a dude arrested because of his own suspicion. You give him the benefit of the doubt because you see him as a stand up dude.......I see him as a over zealous fu*k who believes he word is the end all be all. Like I said you dont get props for being an as*hole........there are better ways to be effective and combat the situation other then treating everyone you see as a threat like sh*t........like in the last video when he is walking to the cop car and he gets up in the face of a bystander in front of the police..........dude is out of control......and is not an a.sset to the police, he is a loose cannon period.
As ive stated before what are they? Real talk enlighten me Bro because this is the same thing that has been plaguing the Black community for awhile, its easy to point out problems but we cant point out effective solutions. Why are we attacking someone who is at the least trying to change the paradigm instead of supporting him. What should be done about it?
