BP Hires “Talon Security” to Block Press from Beaches, Intimidate Workers

Posted in Politics by Bob Higgins on June 15, 2010

Here you see, in embryonic form, the future of privatized “corporate law enforcement.”

I’m not faulting the reporter for his prudence but I think I would have walked past these gaily dressed rent-a-goons and forced them to physically stop me. I’d like to take that one to court.

The beach bouncers in the video are employed by Talon Security of Sacramento, California.  Talon Security is a firm headed by Donald Bacchi, billed on their site as  having retired from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department after thirty years with the rank of Sergeant. Hmm… after thirty years one might expect a loftier rank.

    A ridiculous video… That reporter makes a fool out of the security guards.
