Security Guards Watch Girl Get Beaten - Video - FoxNews.com

The title to this post says it all.

How can three people stand there and watch another person being beaten like this?

I guess because it's "their job".

If that's the case then that "job" should be illegal.

The animals that did this? They should be put down.

Ditto. It's truly sad how many people won't help because it's not urgent to them. It's also sad how in our country you can get sued for any reason at all, which makes even more people not want to interfere.

While I'm not saying I agree with it or would do the same thing, I can understand why the "guards" did what they did.

Jobs are few and far between right now and that's all a lot of people talk about right now. They were specifically told to "observe & report". Nothing more. They probably did only this so they don't lose their job and can no longer provide for their families. Morally, it's not correct, but you have to look out for yourself and your family before others and that's the bottom line.

The news story even tries to talk about how the "guards" could do that, outside of what their employer said. That's fine, but if you're going to make the "guards" out to be bad guys, make every one else that was standing there and did nothing a bad guy too, because they had the same responsibility.

I know the story is focusing on the "guards" since most people would think they are there to prevent this or they are there to provide some help in this scenario, but it just goes to show security guards can't protect you. You are responsible for your own safety, and you alone!

Bottom line, I agree with the Sgt. on the phone and I don't think the guards should be fired.

There's times when observe & report go out the window. This is one of them. These douchebags should be put out of business for this.

Seeing their job description, where this happened, and the age of the kids; I hate to say this but they may have done the right thing.

If they had acted and used force, which they would have because their were 10 or so other teen agers in the mob, they would lose their job, definately get sued, and possibly even get charged with assault on a minor.

It's sad how bad our younger generations have degenerated not to mention our society and country in general.
