Crowd Control - Stun Guns Increasingly Used at Sporting Events

Security officers are increasingly using stun guns to maintain order at sporting events, but are they taking crowd control too far?

This article could tie into both facility crowd control and security, it covers some situations were a taser was used on fans at past sporting events. There seems to be a bit of mixed feelings on the necessity of a stun gun for event security, and it also covers a case in which a fan suied over the use of the stun gun. Due to the fan suing, the idea of stun guns in a facilit could also be something that would come up when discussing risk management.

This article shows a way that can control crowds and possibly deter future disruptions 

Mike Horne's curator insight, September 22, 2013 10:28 PM

I added this one simply because I enjoy tasers and seeing people being tased.  It's a fairly safe way to control someone and de-escalate a bad situation without hurting the people around them.  As with anything, there is a liability issue that the facility staff will have to deal with if used incorrectly.

We live in buildings.

Our homes, workplaces, universities, museums, hospitals, etc. 

Companies spend millions making their new building campuses and attracting talent to them (see Facebook, Apple, NVIDIA, ...)

In sci-fi's we see people using 3D maps all the time to pull up useful information but in 2013 we barely do this...

And the crazy thing is that we often have these 3D/BIM models from the building process, and if we simply used them downstream there is so much more we could do.

By having a 3D/BIM model in our pocket, on our mobile, we can see where our colleagues are (see WifiSlam), find where a room is, see which meeting rooms are free (and where they are), find faulty equipment, do inspections, navigation, visually see where team members are located, get help navigating a museum, hospital, or university campus, etc, etc. 

I really am looking forward to seeing more great Apps which utilize 3D/BIM for downstream use, be it field management, facility management, or occupant interactions. 

It's 2013 - let's live in the future!

Portland is ahead of the power curve on this hot topic, and there is no doubt that revenue is not the only thing that should be of concern to the Booster Club.  Longevity and being healthy should be prioritized over money, and Federal grants attempting to fight obesity will continue to add to the overall budget of the school and compensate for what was lost by not selling unhealthy choices. 

Jonathan Griffith's comment, September 22, 2013 6:25 PM
With obesity such a concern, especially in today's adolescent population, it makes sense to implement these replacements. I believe a better option would be to still include the fan favorites while also offering an additional selection of healthy alternatives.
