    Driver acted better that 99% of us would in that situation. Hopefully his self control will benefit us all when this situation plays out and rent a cop's are properly trained. At least this ####y little ####er wasnt as much of a loose cannon as the TA murderer ( as I like to think of him ), but we butt up against these armed morons everyday and it needs corporate decisions on what standard they hire. I bet these security companies they hire are not from the high end most respected and costly outfits

    No one with half a brain would take a security job at that Love's or the Pilots down the street. They have nothing but the bottom of that barrel to draw from.

    I have a feeling after this video went viral the security guard was fired and the driver was awarded enough points on his reward card to buy every Roman warrior helmet east of the Mississippi.

    Do you really think any truck stop will invest in a top end security company?. Also if you google story about the okc ta shooting the ta murderer took his own life so sad, well not really.

    In the article I read the driver contacted both the manager on duty an corporate.

    Love's responds to viral video involving security guard who threatened to shoot trucker

    Love’s Responds After Security Guard Caught on Video Threatening to Shoot Trucker

    Security guard clearly has some kind of mental issues. I love the fact he's trying to act like a cop or some kind of real security with his bullet proof vest under his shirt. At lest I hope it's a vest, or dude needs a diet stat.

    For those to lazy to read the link marked..."updated" - Loves banned the guard as he didn't work for them an is no longer allowed on Love's property. He was employed by whoever Loves uses for security.

    I'm sure we will read about the guard again, probably after his next job where he acts on his threats.

    Amazing how many people still do an say stupid #### when they know their being recorded. Not sure why I'm amazed, when people are caught on tape saying something then claim they didn't. Because your mouth an the recording lied I guess.

    Guard's defense will be..."Fake news!".

    Either way the guard is a ####ing idiot.

    Sirscrapntruckalot - On the bright side, some stupid people are entertaining..
