Darien Long, a security guard at Metro Mall in downtown Atlanta, deals with unruly patrons each day. Sometimes, they threaten him with violence.
Long regular records these encounters but one video, which was shot in May of last year, has recently gone viral. It is of Long tazering an unidentified woman who is seen in the video hurling foul language at him in front of her small children at Metro Mall.
It is not clear what exactly started the altercation but during the nearly five-minute video, the mother is clearly miffed at Long for addressing her children in what she considered to be a disrespectful tone.
“Security! Don’t yell at my mothf**king baby,” she yelled. “She not inside this raggedyass mall. So you not finna yell at her!” She continues, “You looking over there. But you hear what I’m saying to your pu*sy ass! Don’t muthaf**kin yell at them!”
Oh, it gets much worse.

Instead of leaving, the woman continues yelling obscenities at Long. She then encourages her young children to call the man “gay.” By this time, Long had retreated into the store he was guarding but the woman, her children and another unidentified woman accompanying her continued yelling at the guard. The children entered the store, after the guard ordered the mother to take them off the premises.

Instead of complying, she enters the store and physically confronts the guard. She can be seen throwing punches at him. The guard then took out his Tazer and fired at the mother. She hit the floor immediately. Her children stood near her crying hysterically. A man, who identified the children as “my babies,” expressed anger at Long for tasering the woman and threatened him.
“I’ll see you at six o’clock,” the man said numerous times.
In a recent interview with a local CBS affiliate in Atlanta, Long says that he video records the incidents so that he can help make the area a safer. “What you need to do is clean up the neighborhoods, so other businesses can come in and then downtown Atlanta can prosper,” he said.
The woman who was tazered was charged with criminal trespassing, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and simple battery.
Long has gotten online support from Crowdtilt.com, where neary $20,000 has been raised to help support his crime-stopping efforts.
