Mall Cops Trained For Terror
Mall security guards are now receiving homeland security training.
In a shopping mall outside Hartford, past the Abercrombie & Fitch and the cell phone kiosks, tucked away by the Barnes & Noble, a conference room full of security guards is learning how to spot suicide bombers.
They are being taught blast patterns and behavior profiles, how a bomb is packaged and how a bomber is recruited.
I'll tell you this: If there's anything mall security guards need it is a new aspect of their job to make them think they are more important than they actually are.
Don't be surprised if you find yourself wrapped up in a CIA investigation the next time you are loitering.
