3 Seattle Bus Tunnel Guards Watch Brutal Beating Of 15 Year Old Girl By 3 Thugs…

Three security guards watched a group of teens punch, kick and rob a 15-year-old girl in the downtown Seattle Metro bus tunnel without intervening.
I know they were scared, but this is just an act of cowardice on all sides.

Security officers saw the assault, but didn’t stop it.

The Sheriff’s Office gave this explanation for the guards’ inaction:”They did not intercede as they are unarmed, civilian employees of Olympic Security Services. They are trained to not become involved in violent confrontations or fights, but are directed to call 9-1-1, which they did via the tunnel communications center.

King County Executive Dow Constantine has ordered Metro Transit to review polices that restrict what unarmed Transit security guards can do when seeing criminal activity.(SOURCE)

Constantine said in a press release, “Public Safety is our top priority. I am appalled by the sight of uniformed guards standing by while a person was kicked and beaten. I have ordered a full review of all operating policies that govern Metro’s contract with civilian security guards to determine what changes must be made.”

First of all, what good is security if they are not ready to act to secure the public…

and secondly,…what type of men are we producing today that are so terrified of physical confrontation that three grown men would not act immediately to protect a little girl?!?!…

Come on men…step away from the video games and go outside and have a real fight.

Seems like our men are so weak these days, the women are more manly than the men.

This is a reprehensible act of violence, equaled only by the display of cowardice by these three so-called security guards.

The 15-year-old girl who delivered the beating was arrested over the weekend and was booked into juvenile detention, according to the Sheriff’s Office statement.

Detectives also arrested two men, ages 18 and 20, and an 18-year-old woman on Saturday. According to the Sheriff’s Office statement, the three were involved in the assault, robbery or threats to kill the girl. One of them may also have acted as a lookout.

The AP is reporting that…those involved knew each other and had been involved in a disturbance at a nearby department store which drew the attention of Seattle police earlier that evening, according to a sheriff’s office report. The girl, who reported that she lost consciousness during the attack, was not hospitalized but did see a doctor.

I hope the young woman fully recovers from her trauma,and her attackers are brought to justice.
