Bgc security…arrogant and stupid. The next time you visit the Bonifacio Global City, either for shopping or recreation, watch out for those roving security guards in the area. You may just be the next victim of their arrogance and stupidity.
Several parents of students of Everest Academy, a Catholic international school in the area, reportedly got infuriated over the weekend when a handful of BGC security guards confiscated the licenses of their chauffeurs for a simple no parking violation.
Those parents, who were attending a school activity that day, swore there were no “no parking” signs on the side street leading to the said school.
They were surprised when their drivers informed them that these nincompoop motorcycle-riding guards of BGC, instead of just issuing them traffic tickets, confiscated their licenses.
The drivers claim that when they asked for their violation to these men in blue, they were yelled at and threatened their cars would be towed if they did not hand over their licenses at once.
This is not the first time that people complained about the abusive security men of Global City in Taguig. They have been the subjects of complaints in the recent past for beating up or rough handling people they accosted for being rowdy.
And, several times these victims called the attention of the management of BGC, which is by the way is owned and operated by Ayala Corp., but no action has been taken to correct this problem so far.
Wait till Mr. Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala hears this.

Were we duped in choosing this president?
Ever wondered how this incompetent leader in Malacañang made it in his office today?
Political analysts would definitely tell you that it was pure luck for PNoy to be chosen as standard-bearer of the Liberal Party in 2010, replacing its candidate, Mar Roxas, at the last minute.
No one paid attention to then Sen. Benigno Aquino 3rd as he was considered a mediocre legislator. Some say, if not for the legacy left by his parents, Ninoy and Cory, Noynoy might not have even made it to the Senate.
But as fate would have it, Cory died, and Roxas continued to trail Sen. Manny Villar then by a large margin in the surveys for the polls for the 2010 presidential election.
This was when the leaders of the Liberal Party finally decided to anoint Noynoy Aquino as their official standard bearer following the death of his mother and use it to their advantage as the nation mourned over the lost of its icon of democracy and model of honesty for government officials.
According to De La Salle Political Professor Antonio Contreras, the people then were looking for someone somewhat like a savior to free the nation from deeply rooted corruption and reeling poverty.
The LP leadership then turned their attention to Noynoy, who carried his family’s corrupt-free legacy with the matching, “walang mahirap kung walang kurap”, slogan on to the day of the polls.
However, little did everyone know that Noynoy would be surrounded by corrupt and abusive friends, classmates, and shooting buddies who would become part of his Cabinet and be his close advisers later on.
The rest is history.
