So as some of you already know I work security, and one of my companies' contracts is a major movie theater. We had 12,000 guests Thursday night and its been busy non-stop. Keep in mind we have about 8-12 armed officers on duty throughout the day, even before the the incident on Thursday.
Now the crazy part, yesterday afternoon, a male walks up to the box office (I was not working, been out on disability) and after buying his ticket, makes the comment "I have a gun in my trunk and I'm going to shoot up the theater..." then proceeds to walk off. For whatever reason beyond me, the person working did not feel the need to report this to security, nor call 911. Instead, she approaches the male subject on her own and asks him to leave the theater immediately. Subject said he was just kidding, but left anyways.
Curious what people think besides the fact that this guy is a complete idiot. That's like walking into an airport and telling TSA you have a bomb... :what:
If you were the employee, would you have done the same, or reported it? If you work security and knew you had several other armed officers with you and heard about this, how would you have proceeded? And for LEOs, how would your department respond if they received a 911 call reporting this. Curious to know if people think its just a joking matter or something serious now.
