Having some wild-eyed trespasser sprinting in your direction with unknown intentions is an unenviable position for players to be in. One could understand if they drew on their immediate instinct to physically defend themselves. But that could prove to be a bad idea in the litigious times we live in. Maybe best for the six security guards to do the job.
