    I had respect for the deputy up until the part where “...[Deputy] Gaston and his wife have now filed a civil lawsuit against that security guard...”

    Why? That’s really his only legal recourse. I mean, I guess he could’ve shot the security guard.

    I hope he wins.

    Actually, it isn’t the only recourse, as the guard was arrested and criminally charged, which I’m guessing will be successful.

    I expect LEO not to “suffer emotional and psychological distress” as a result of a threatening but non-violent encounter with a civilian that resulted in an arrest and criminal charges, especially one in which the LEO participated in the arrest.

    I smell opportunism.

    ETA: why is the wife reported to be a part of the civil suit? She wasn’t even there.

    I say good for the deputy. Neither of the IRS offices here will allow you to carry inside their offices with a gun and a badge. Not sure about the uniform part. They also don't have lockboxes to lock up your gun. They do have armed contract security (Paragon) and you can imagine why. Complete over reaction by the guard and the person who called 911. It's like the recent Starbucks incident in AZ only worse.

    He has every legal reason to sue, opportunism or not (don't know about the wife). In an age where civilians sue cops for everything imaginable, it is about time we reverse that. Screw the guard, screw the caller, and screw the IRS.

    The security guard went full retard and the deputy had to outdo him by filing suit. The guard hasn't got any money or he wouldn't have that job, looking for deeper pockets at his company.

    Gimme dat free shit.

    I pretty much agree with everything you said.

    He is taking advantage of the situation.

    Besides the fact that he was taking care of personal business while on duty. I don't really have an issue with that but it created this whole situation.

    I think the guard overreacted but ultimately was in the right here. He did his job. He couldn't have known if the badge and uniform were fake so he took appropriate action.

    He should have been the one to call 911 though.
