A security guard who became an online star after Tasing customers he deemed out of control is losing his job.
Darien Long, a security guard at the Metro Mall in downtown Atlanta, became known worldwide after videos of him Tasing people he deemed out of control went viral on the internet.
Long said that he was given a pink slip by his employers for financial reasons.
“They lost three vendors. They can no longer afford to pay me. So that’s why they’re letting me go,”
Some have questioned whether Long’s uncompromising style of law enforcement is the reason for his dismissal.
“This environment made me very, very aggressive. But when you need someone to handle a situation so you don’t have to call the police, then you want somebody there that’s going to be willing to handle it,”
Who didn’t see this coming, I hope he saved that $20k he made on kickstarter, cause employee’s are going to Google his name and say ah hell nah..
