I once watched them detain a guy in a secure area for having lost his badge. He was about halfway down a 30 ft hallway, kneeling with his hands behind his head.
The air force police were on either end of the hallway guns drawn, pointing at him and incidentally at each other. They were arguing with each other over what to do. One cop would give an instruction and then the other would countermand. The guy in the middle eventually told them to get their f*&!@ act together.
I had a co-worker who was using the turnstiles to a classified facility. They are designed as cages in ‘certain situations’, his card let him in and then locked him in the turnstile.
As he told me later on four sets of M-4’s pointed at his head made him a bit ‘nervous’. It turned out to be a data base ‘error’.
Sure am glad I don’t work there anymore.
