    takes a special person to be security. But, its about being respectful and nice to begin with.

    I was a security guard for a while, to help pay for college. I have the power to yell "Stop!, or I'll yell stop again!"

    Security work is dangerous. Most guards are not allowed to carry a weapon at all. Unfortunately being the "guard' makes you a target also. A big defenseless target.
