See email below from Executive Director of the Board of Police Commissioners
I also spoke on the phone with a representative from the BSIS (Bureau of Security and Investigative Services) who confirmed that Gates Security has had an expired license since October of 2018 for being a private control operator, which allows them to even security guards, as they explained and I understood it.

REQUESTING INVESTIGATION OF CRIMINAL ACTS BY EMPLOYEE OF SECURITY COMPANY
I have witnessed a video; https://www.instagram.com/p/Bsnwa2eHztq/that was taken in 2018, exact date is reported to be 9/19/18 at 7:36 am at Gladstones parking lot off Pacific Coast Highway in the Pacific Palisades, LA County, between the alleged parties “Jimmy” and a security guard who has been reported to be Eric Fine who works for “Palisades Patrol“, whose parent company is Gates Security also known as “Gates Security Systems” where they have 6 current License numbers and 4 Expired License numbers with the Department of Consumer Affairs. The owner and founder is Scott Wagenseller according to their website, who also owns Palisades News.
It is my opinion, that the security guard assaulted and falsely imprisoned the one legged individual in a wheelchair who seemed incoherent. I also believe after watching video and listening to the audio the security guard is impersonating an officer. It was reported by multiple parties after the arrest “Jimmy” was taken by Los Angeles Fire Department to a hospital to be treated for injuries from this arrest.
Some quotes from the security guard alleged to be Eric Fine from the video are as follows;
“Now you are gonna go in handcuffs, put your hands behind your back.”
He then proceeded to repeatedly tell the man in a wheel chair with one leg to “GET UP” followed by
“You fuck with me.. I’m done with you, yeah shut up, shut up. You had a chance.. you fuck with me… quit crying.. put your leg out”.
As the man was screaming on the ground laying on his stomach arrested, the security guard says, “keep screaming… Jimmy, listen to me, shut your mouth… I am not going to play games with you, you don’t fucking pull this shit in my town shut your mouth…”
“You were given every opportunity, now I am going to solve it my way and you are going to fucking go, PERIOD.”
“Hey Jimmy, you’re my first one legged arrest”
“Today you are going to go to jail…” When Jimmy said, “for what?” I am not going to keep repeating myself because you are to fucking stupid to listen”.
“I have to stop what I am doing, get off the phone with my fucking girlfriend, and come down here and deal with you, so now you are going to go to jail.. say ok, (Jimmy nods) say thank you (Jimmy nods), you’re welcome”
If the Security Guard is confirmed to be Eric Fine, it is my opinion he should not only be fired, but charged with assault, false imprisonment, and impersonating a police officer. Anticipating a timely response by email to Sennett@mrcheckpoint.com.
Thank you for your time,
