The other day I was talking to a guy who owns one of those fake policing companies — ok, private security — and apparently they actually have the authority to do stuff.
Their authority to detain people, etc, rests on the same code that allows citizens’ arrests essentially. Those fake security people are actually allowed to arrest you and take you in to the police station.
So, I said, well, you’re not the police, right? So, I have the right to resist you “arresting” me.
Yeah, well, people have tried that and they use force or even pepper spray to detain people and bring them in for a variety of offenses – namely of the disorderly conduct, public intoxication variety.
I swear to god, you try to “arrest” me and I will resist my ass off, because who the fuck are you, in your creepy pseudo-cop uniform. No, I’m not going with you. How do I know you’re not just trying to kidnap me or something worse? And if you pepper spray me, I will 1. probably kick you in the groin and 2. sue your ass.
