  1. I dont care what shawn wade did prior to the video clip i seen. securities job was to secure wade until law enforcement got there it looked to me like wade was secure with someone heavier in full mount on him and a gaurd holding each arm not the headbutting and punching. That makes all three of them gaurds guilty of assault. Excessive force these gaurds are clearly not trained for this type of situation.

  2. Possible charges against the security guard are you kidding me …the suspect isn’t even fighting back that security guard needs to be charged …his tactics are not an acceptable use of force

  3. I'm sure looks like two other security guards holding him down to the floor,whiler
    Davis headbutts him the guy on the left in the video and the other on his knees the three of the security could not handcuff him come on now this is insane three on one ,security not cops
