BAD: Security Guard jobs entail some risks.
After another recent security-guard murder, an old retiree pal and I did not have to decide too hard that we did not want to be security guards, it having nothing to do with military or CCW or police training of the past, when the lowlifes drive up and surprise you and shoot at your first.

DAYTON — Officers took into custody a 21-year-old man suspected of shooting two Moonlight Security guards, leaving one in critical but stable position condition at a local hospital.
Homicide detectives found Christopher Beatty-Jones in his home at 3933 Prescott Ave. shortly before 10 a.m. Tuesday, March 30.
Beatty-Jones had been sought in connection with an overnight shooting at the Western Manor Apartment Complex on James H. McGee Boulevard.
Officers led Beatty-Jones to the Montgomery County Jail about 10:30 a.m. after briefly meeting with homicide detectives at police headquarters. Beatty-Jones did not speak to the media before being booked into the jail on a felonious assault charge.
The injured security guards have been identified in a police report as James C. Locker Jr., 50, and William St. Peter, 54. Moonlight Security officials declined comment. Police are not releasing which of the guards was critically wounded.
The guards not wearing a protective vest was rushed to Miami Valley Hospital by ambulance after being shot in the torso, police said. He underwent emergency surgery and his condition has improved, Sgt. Gary White said.
The guard wearing a protective vest is expected to be released from the hospital today, officers said. The guards were armed but never fired their weapons, White said.
The men are full-time security guards and not police officers, police said.
Beatty-Jones was near the apartments about 1 a.m. because of illegal drug-related activity, White said. He fled as the guards approached his vehicle because they suspected suspicious activity, White said.
The guards were questioning Beatty-Jones’ friend, Jodi Grigsby, when he returned and started firing on the officers, police said. He fired five times at the guards, hitting each of them once.
It was the second time in a week the couple had been involved in a shooting, White said.
Grigsby, 45, and Beatty-Jones were together March 22 near the Summit Square Apartments when Grigsby was shot in the arm, according to a police report. Beatty-Jones later told officers he was there to buy $50 worth of marijuana when someone shot at their vehicle, the report stated.
White said Beatty-Jones was not a suspect in that shooting.

Maybe this dirtbag will get some serious jail time and get him off the streets for awhile. What a waste of good oxygen.

Are security guards now classified as being members of a low-paid part-time regulated militia that profiles more than it smiles? Have they also alarmed the Southern Poverty Law Center too, causing them to boohoo and sue with the ACLU? Sad news update just added from another site:
Dayton, Ohio - One of two Moonlight Security guards wounded during a traffic stop on Prescott Avenue March 30th has died. Jim Locker Jr., 50, had been in critical condition since the shooting. Reports initially indicated that he was likely to survive, however complications arose which caused his condition to worsen. The other guard, William St. Peter, 54 was treated and later released from the hospital. St. Peter was wearing a bullet resistant vest, but Locker was not. Reports from people close to the investigation state that a vest wouldn't have saved Locker because of the location where the bullets struck him. Locker reportedly used over 44 pints of blood. Officials from Moonlight Security had been working on setting up a blood drive. Blood supplies are always low this time of year. You can contact the Community Blood Center at 1-800-388-GIVE, or go to their new website at www.donortime.com if you would like to donate blood to help replenish the supplies.
Jim Locker Sr., the victims father was a long-time Dayton Police Officer working in the Bureau of Investigation for many years.
Funeral arrangements have not been made.

My prayers go out to the Locker family. The scum bag responsible needs a good dose of Death Penalty now.

I feel bad for this officer as I used to be an armed private security officer in San Francisco, CA fifteen years ago. I worked in the same setting as this guy did and can tell you that it was a rough job with little respect from all sides of the stakerholders(clients, local leo, community members etc). I left this position after the law limiting the capacity of our magazines was lowered to ten which seriously put us in a less safer position and outgunned. My prayers go out to this officer and his family.
