An Atlanta security guard, whose viral video of him using a taser on a violent woman, is getting worldwide financial support.
A user of the website, crowdtilt.com, has helped raise over $23,000 to arm Darien Long and help him better police the 5 Points Plaza mall in Atlanta.
Tells one reddit user: “He is a nice guy and that area is very dangerous. There is a cop station around the block but people still sell drugs around there. He has to wear kevlar and has his own mugshot book. He was not too proud about tasing the woman and wished it could have been avoided.”
In addition to his confrontation with the woman, there’s another video of Long confronting drug dealers outside the Atlanta mall.
