#142 - Old Wounds 1

There's a huge distinction between an armed and unnamed security guards. One focuses on observing, reporting and trying to tactfully prevent crime. The other is a lot less subtle and tends to be a lot more in-your-face... and they get equipped with potentially fatal weapons. I feel as though unarmed security forces tend to be more difficult. You're expected to do quite a bit armed with just your wits and a two-way radio.

"Starsky and/or Hutch" seems very on-brand for John.

Poor pinball machine! Don't those ruffians know they're an endangered species?

One difference i've always thought is in a serious robeery scenario. If you're an unarmed security guard and someone wants to take something you're guarding, they know if they just show a weapon you have to let them take it. But if you're armed then they have to consider how fast and competent you are, or at least think you are, so there's a greater chance of things going bad. The question then, is, is the difference in pay worth the risk?
