id love to know how they plan on detaining you, since security guards only duty is to 'observe and report'. security guards are basically people like you and i with a fancy badge, radio and notepad. they have no more right to arrest/detain you than i do.

the second they lay a hand on you, its simple assault.

the second they prevent you from leaving, thats kidnapping.

this applies to retail locations as well. wal mart/target 'loss prevention' cannot detain you, nor can they lay a hand on you. they are not officers of the law and have no right to do so unless you commit a felony. at that point, ANY person, be it security guard or everyday jane, can detain you until law enforcement arrives.
