I know nothing about this topic, so I am asking those of you who have more experience. As a bouncer/security guard, what are the rules about getting physical with people? I don't mean just restraints...I mean what if you punched someone? Where I live, it seems like bouncers can get away with an awful lot. I read a story about some guy who was found on the sidewalk with a bloody face and bruises on his body: the bouncers had punched him, thrown him out, and apparently kicked him while he was down. But it was barely a blip on the radar. Now if COPS had done that to the guy, it would have been all over the news...people screaming police brutality...grand jury convened...the whole she-bang. I'm sure laws vary depending on where you live/work, but I just wanted to hear some experiences that people had dealt with.
