    Between this and other news reports its a wonder this security guard didn't get themselves seriously injured. It's pretty clear that whoever it is was untrained or inept as they should never have gone into the road after a person. I should also point out that cowboy behaviour like this puts the public at risk too. Innocent bystanders can be hurt when untrained security does stupid things.
