An armed security has been suspended after a local news outlet aired footage of him sleeping on the job. The video was allegedly captured outside the offices of the Department of Homeland Security at the Javits Federal Office Building in lower Manhattan.

According to NY local blog Gothamist:


The video was taken at the Jacob K. Javits Federal Office Building on Foley Square, where the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, and the Social Security Administration all have offices. The man who took the video claimed he saw two others guards at Federal Plaza sleeping on the job on the same morning.

The sleepy guard shamed in this video is employed by FJC Security Services, which issued a statement saying, "We take these allegations seriously and have launched an immediate investigation into the matter. The guard has been suspended pending this investigation and will not return to this site."
