I thought that report was pretty stupid for spending nearly 10 minutes trying to make a point that is already blatantly obvious to anyone with half a brain. Those security guards are just employees of a private security firm, meaning they don't have any powers beyond what the ordinary citizen has. Do people really expect the security guards to intervene in these violent situations and risk being stabbed or bashed like the people they are trying to protect? For the pittance these security guards get paid, I don't blame them for not wanting to put themselves in harms way. What they need in Queensland to stop the violence on the train stations is TRANSIT OFFICERS, like they have in Perth. There are relatively few problems on the Perth rail system due to the presence of Transit Officers. They are specially trained government officers endowed with the same powers of arrest as police and equipped with weapons such as extendible batons, pepper spray, and handcuffs. They are well paid, and rigorously assessed for selection through physical, psych & aptitude evaluations. Most of them are tall, muscular white guys, like the police officers from the good old days. Of course, the police force has become politicized to the gills and can't discriminate for any reason, so they removed all height and weight restrictions and started employing women.
