GAS STATION SECURITY GUARD pulls someone out of car, beats and maces him while on ground.
This is assault no matter how you put it.
How do you stop a guy like that, how do you defend yourself?
Even if this guy is charged and its understood his actions were bad, what if the bystanders defended the guy. What if someone shot the guard or pushed him off the guy. Who do you think the cops around the corner would help.
That's his second time caught doing this.
